Simple Panorama Slideshow
This tip explains how to build a simple slideshow out of your project. However, if you have the pro version of Pano2VR, using the Change Node feature will be much quicker. The title of this tip uses panorama but you can also use your object movie outputs.
- First output all your panoramas with their own HTML page. It will probably be easier to rename the pages with a sequence, e.g: slide_1.html, slide_2.html, slide_3.html, etc.
- Open the HTML pages in a text editor and add the two meta tags:
- <meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="blendTrans(Duration=.5)">
- <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="8;url=slide_2.html">
- The first is the transition effect and only works in IE (as of this writing). The second is the refresh timer and next URL.
To break it down:
- 8;Url=slide_2.html, means that in 8 seconds, a page called, slide_2.html, will load.
- The slide_2 page will have 8;url=slide_3.html; the slide_3 page will have 8;url=slide_4.html, and so on.
- The last page will load back to slide 1.
- You can change how long each page stays open with the timer. ◊ TIP: Another advantage to using Pano2VR pro would be that the timer won't time out when a user is interacting with the panorama or object.
