To create an auto show for the tour, you use the tools of two main editors:
- Start actions in the scene settings editor is the main tool. It is used to animate each panorama in the auto show.
- Start actions in tour setting editors are used to create an animated screensaver for the tour.
- view animation
- show text
- show image
- start custom actions
- You can use all kinds of animations in any combination. Call actions in parallel or sequentially.
- The basis of the concept of animation is the starting event.
- There are only two such events:
- the start of the tour (occurs once)
- the loading of the separate panorama (occurs every time the panorama is loaded).
From these events begins the countdown.
Time spent on:
- expectation (wait)
- action itself
- You specify in the editor fields of view animation, the waiting time before the start of the action - 2 seconds, and the rotation time - 5 seconds.
- The program will take this as an instruction:
- wait(2.0);rotate (10.0);
- The total time is summed up and it turns out 12 seconds.
- If you want to show an text after rotation, you specify a waiting time of 12 seconds and only then indicate the show time - 10 seconds.
- If you want to show the text in parallel with the rotation, you must specify a wait time of 2 seconds.
- In the case of a sequential display, the total animation time will be 22 seconds.
- In the case of parallel display - 12 seconds
When creating an auto show, after completing the panorama animation, you need to go to the next panorama.
To do this in the custom action editor write your own script:
- enter the total animation time as a waiting time - wait(totaltime);.
- enter the next scene name in the loadscene action - loadscene(scenename, null, MERGE, BLEND(1));
Important: write both actions in one stroke
- wait(totaltime); loadscene(scenename, null, MERGE, BLEND(1));
Note: As a custom action, you can use any sequence of actions. In order not to write them in one line, it is better to create an action with the name and give a link to it.
For example create action myshow that will open info box, plan, gallery, image and then go to the next pano. :
loadscene(scenename, null, MERGE, BLEND(1));
< /action >
- Auto show will be interrupted by any user actions inside the tour.
- If you want the auto show to resume work after a period of user inactivity inside the tour, add the idlerepeat attribute to skin_settings.
- Specify the idle time before auto show resumes in seconds.
- The auto show will start with a panorama in which the user's action interrupted it.
- Remember that the autoshow on the local computer and the network can be very different.
- It is necessary to take into account the download speed, performance of the processor, video card and other factors.
