6.0 beta 1

Floor Plans

Floor plans can now be added to the Tour Map which can then be geolocated so nodes without GPS that are pinned to the floor plan will get location information.

The floor plans added here, can also be added to the Map element in the Skin Editor.

Custom Map Tiles

Custom Maps can also be added to the Tour Map. So, if you want to use tiles from another provider, you can apply this here. The custom map can also be applied to the skin.

Custom Tiles

Animation Editor

The Animation Editor is now a panel and uses the main Viewer for viewing the animation.

There is also a new track that can be added for controlling skin elements.

Finally, sequences can now be created and outputted.

Skin Editor

The maps element now supports custom maps and floor plans that have been added in the Tour Map.

There is now a way to change skins without having to open the Skin Editor, using Variables and the Edit Skin Configuration button in the HTML5 Output.

Positioning in the Skin Editor has been updated to better reflect how positioning works in HTML5.

360 Video in Viewer

The viewer now supports 360 video, making it easier to work with them in Pano2VR.
