Pano2VR – Help
Object2VR – Help

The Skin Editor got a major update with Pano2VR 4.5 and Object2VR 3.0 . If you’re looking for the previous version of the Skin Editor, see this article.


In both Pano2VR and Object2VR you can create or add a skin to your Flash and/or HTML5 outputs.

A skin, as a whole, is a graphical element (interface) that is layered over the panorama or object movie, and can include images, buttons and sounds. For example, a controller skin includes graphical elements (buttons) that allow you to control the panorama or object movie.
