This is the default HTML template. It is found in the HTML panel of the HTML5, Flash and QuickTime VR outputs. Click the Edit Template button to open its settings.

Text and Background Colors – Choose the color of the text and the page’s background by clicking on the color wells.

Direct node access – Select to directly access any node within a tour by adding the node’s ID in the URL. For example: ../index.html#node5.

Include gyroscope control – Select to enable use of a gyroscope that is included in some mobile devices (Apple’s iPhone and iPad, Google’s Nexus line, Samsung’s Galaxy line, etc.).

  • Disable on startup – If selected, the gyroscope control will not be on when the panorama starts up. It’s recommended to have a button within the skin so the user can enable and disable gyroscope control.

  • Use true north – select to use true north and the panorama will always stay true to the direction (like a compass). If not selected it just uses the gyroscope and the panorama will move with the device.

If you need or want to output a Flash version of your panorama in addition to the HTML5 output, you can use the Flash Fallback player. Flash is found increasingly less on the web and Adobe will stop supporting it soon. However, if you add the Flash fallback player, the Flash version of your project will be used if HTML5 cannot be played back on a website.

Flash fallback player – Select to use a Flash player that uses the XML file to play back the project. If using this, there is no need to add a fallback file (SWF).

Flash fallback file – Add the Flash version (SWF) of the panorama here so that browsers that do not support HTML5 3D transformations, but do support Flash, can properly playback the panorama. If you’ve selected to use the Flash fallback player, you do not need to add a file here.

Prefer Flash if available – Select this to have Flash as the preferred player. If a browser supports both HTML5 3D transformations and Flash, the Flash version will be played via the Flash player.

Embedded XML – Embeds the XML file in the HTML template. Good for when things can read the external file.

iOS Device Webpage Icon – Add an image file for the bookmark icon. Click, Open…, to choose the file.

Reference for icon sizes.

Format – Choose between the extensions, .html and .htm.

Output File – If you wish, change the name of the file and choose where to save the outputted HTML file. The default is set to output the file in a folder called output in the same directory as the original image. If no change is made here, this is where you will find your outputted image.
