have a look:

and I'll try to add a better way to do this in the next versions

in the most cases hlookat will not be exact -179, even more "-179.464564" for example
to check it you need to use "view.hlookat"
The view angle would be whatever is set by the initial onstart action, so perhaps it might be an absolute value? Hmm...
I've just realised that I may be shooting myself in the foot with the code. Does it matter that I've left the version element in?


krpano version="1.0.7" onstart="action(startview); delayedcall(8, action(rectview););"

if you set to "-179" at the start, then you can check for it, thats right
but note - use "view.hlookat",

the "version" should be set to "1.0.7" or a higher value or removed,
if it's "1.0.6" or lower, the set/get could behave a little bit different

Thanks Klaus - the other thread looks rather interesting too!

But it feels like I'm going backwards now: if I use the options plugin it now just tells me "wrong krpano version". Does that not work with this beta? If this sort of thing is an issue would it be possible to download a complete set of everything each time?

(This is something that I've found to be rather confusing from the start - what version is what, what extras go with which krpano version, and so on. Version control is a bit of a nightmare! I seem to remember finding that some of the examples wouldn't work with the version of krpano that they shipped with...)

Hi, just make sure that the krpano.swf and the plugin swf files are from the same version/download package,
if you use the krpano.swf from the 1.0.8 beta 5, you also need to use the plugins from this download
to check the current krpano version - press the 'O' key in the viewer, this opens a log where the
version is displayed in the first line.

best regards,
Klaus

Thanks Klaus - my face is red, but I'm very happy. I'm still learning! (Learning to look properly, for one thing... ;-) )

correct format for cylindrical preview image

when using a cylindrical preview image... what is the correct xml format?

I've tried a couple different variations and keep ending up with a preview image that looks spherical with a lot of black space on the top and bottom.

Thanks.

partial previews are not working in beta 5,
the beta6 will fix it,

best regards,
Klaus

why does the partial image stop when panning to the left and right in the demo? Shouldn't this be a loop (never-ending)? Like a QVR? It just abruptly stops.
Hi,

this partial image has only a horizontal field of view of 45 degree,
that means the left and right edges are not connected,

when the horizontal field of view covers a range of 360 degree then it will be "loop"

best regards,
Klaus
Can one program it with this 1.0.8 version to make it loop? As far as I can tell I have the pano stitched so it should be able to loop.

Hi, yes, just remove the hfov="..." setting or set it to hfov="360",
then it will loop horizontally

- embed and encrypt the xml direct into the pano
- embed the license

Looks great Klaus! *thumbup*

I have an unlimited domain license. Can you explain the "branding free" additional license? I don't see anything on your purchase page.

Hi Klaus,

Just tried kprotect.exe , everything worked nicely in the generated EXE file except for the combobox and soundinterface plugins. Even though the path was correct, krpano wasn't able to find the 2 plugins. Maybe a bug ?

I had the same question...

Or do we use the download link we had from when we purchased it originally ( if I can find it ) : )

I think it's in your new plugins update map.

You got the license API key so i think that should work.. *confused*
