video Hotspot with mask and swf animation issue

Hello Klaus and people,

Is it possible to create a mask on a hotspot video?

I´m also trying to insert an animated swf as a normal hotspot to have its transparency enabled. Couldn´t make a flv with transparency and use it as video hotspot - just using multiply, but it makes other non black areas a little transparent also)

The problem is that the swf file starts stoped. How can I make it start playing and looped?

Thanks in advance! :)

using a mask on a distorted hotspot should be possible,


Source code

<hotspot name="mask" ... />
<hotspot name="spot" ... mask="hotspot[mask]" ... />

but I don't think that will be good for the performance...

it is possible to create flash videos (.flv) with an alpha channel, that would be the best way...
.swf with transparency are also supported but krpano can't control the swf...

best regards,
