List of Placeholders

A placeholder is like a shortcut for using data or text from other sections of the software. For example, a text box in the skin may contain $p which will display the percentage of how much the image has loaded, while $ut will display the Title in the User Data.

Skin Editor

The following placeholders can be used within the skin.

Loading

  • $b = bytes loaded - (use in a text box)

  • $t = bytes total - (use in a text box)

  • $B = kilo bytes loaded - (use in a text box)

  • $T = kilo bytes total - (use in a text box)

  • $p = percentage loaded - (use in a text box)

  • $n = loading status 0.000 .. 1.000 - (use in a text box)

Position

  • $ap = current pan angle - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode Pan/Tilt/FoV field and a text box)

  • $an = current pan angle with north setting applied - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode Pan/Tilt/FoV field and a text box)

  • $at = current tilt angle - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode Pan/Tilt/FoV field and a text box)

  • $af = current field of view - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode Pan/Tilt/FoV field and a text box)

  • $cur = current pan/tilt/fov - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode Pan/Tilt/FoV field)

  • $fwd = movement from current node to next will keep the same pan/tilt/fov values while correcting for North, so the direction is always looking forwards - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode Pan/Tilt/FoV field)

  • $bwd = similar to $fwd but the direction looks backwards when moving from one node to another. - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode Pan/Tilt/FoV field)

Hotspots

  • $hs = hotspot title - (use in a text box)

  • $hu = hotspot URL - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode URL field)

  • $r = hotspot URL - (use in conjunction with $hs: $r$hu) This placeholder was added to be used with $hu to fix an issue that was affecting images in WordPress.

  • $ht = hotspot target - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode Pan/Tilt/FoV field)

  • $hd = hotspot description - (use in a text box)

Navigation

  • $back = node ID of the previously visited node - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode with {})

  • $prev = node ID of the previous node based on the order of the tour browser - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode with {})

  • $next = node ID of the next node based on the order of the tour browser - (use in Open Next Panorama’s Expert Mode with {})

User Data

All of the following can be used in a text box or as variable data in the Skin Editor.

  • $ut = user data title

  • $ud = user data description

  • $ua = user data author

  • $ue = user data date/time

  • $uc = user data copyright

  • $us = user data source

  • $ui = user data information

  • $uo = user data comment

  • $lat = user data latitude

  • $lng = user data longitude

  • $un = user data custom node ID

  • $t = date/time of the input file

File Paths

All of the following can be used in the output file path. All file names are written without their extensions.

  • $n = input image name - (use in the file path when saving projects)

  • $p = project name - (use in the file path when saving projects)

  • $d = project directory - (use in the file path when saving projects)

  • $i = image directory - (use in the file path when saving projects)

  • $f = project directory & project name (legacy)

  • $y = node ID - (used in the tiles file path of multi-resolution, which will use the node’s ID rather than its filename)

Multi-resolution

All multi-resolution placeholders found in the Image panel in the Flash and HTML5 outputs are used within the Filename field for naming conventions.

All lowercase letters will begin their number sequences with zero (0). All uppercase letters will begin their sequences with one (1).

The default naming convention is tiles/$n/cf_%C/l%L/%00Y_%00X.jpg.

Cube Faces

  • %c = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5; cf_0, cf_1, etc.

  • %C = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; cf_1, cf_2, etc.

The 7th cube face (cf_7) in the multi-resolution output is the preview track and is a strip projection.

Multi-resolution Levels

  • %l = the lowest resolution level will begin with zero (0): l_0, l_1, l_2, etc.

  • %L = the lowest resolution level will begin with one (1): l_1, l_2, l_3, etc.

  • %r = the highest resolution level will begin with zero, thus reversing the order of the levels.

Tile Positions

  • %y = tile location on the y-axis

  • %x = tile location on the x-axis

  • %00Y = tile location on the y-axis beginning with one (1) and 2 places: 001-999.

  • %00X = tile location on the x-axis beginning with one (1) and 2 places: 001-999.

Patches

The following placeholder is seen when you choose to include the patch’s location in the file name in the Preferences/Settings.

$c = the patch’s location (pan/tilt/fov values)
