everpano 3D 1.2.0


Hi,

There is a new release everpano 3D 1.2.0

News in everpano 3D 1.2.0:

Amazon Web Services with S3 integration

Upload your projects to your own S3 buckets with the ease of a simple click.
Forget worrying about your servers, your inodes, your bandwith capacity. Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is an storage service that offers industry-leading scalability, data availability, security, and performance. This means customers of all sizes and industries can use it to store and protect any amount of data for a range of use cases. Amazon S3 is designed for 99.999999999% (11 9's) of durability, and stores data for millions of applications for companies all around the world.
  • Create an AWS account

    You need to create an AWS account or use your current one. This is a simple and quick process, just go to https://aws.amazon.com/ and create a new account. AWS Accounts Include 12 Months of Free Tier Access, so you can test it, and see how well it performs

    create aws account

  • Get your access key

    In order for everpano 3D to access your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account, the Access Key and the Secret Access Key are required. The Access Key and the Secret Access Key are not your standard user name and password, but are special tokens that allow the app to upload the projects to your S3 buckets.

    To find your Access Key and Secret Access Key:

    1. Log in to your AWS Management Console.
    2. Click on your user name at the top right of the page.
    3. Click on the My Security Credentials link from the drop-down menu.
    4. Click on Create new access key.
    5. Click on the Show access key, and copy the Secret Access Key, or download a csv file.
    get aws acces key

  • Configure the AWS account in everpano 3D

    Once you already have created your account, you can go to everpano 3D and with the item menu Help -> Configure AWS you will get this window to input the values of your account

    configure aws account

  • Create your first bucket

    Now you are ready to create buckets so you can organize your projects, that would depend on your needs, maybe you prefer to have a single bucket for all your project, or maybe you want to divide it and have one bucket per client.
    You need to select one of the regions in the list. It should be the most close to your most audience in order to improve latency


    Important: if you already owned and AWS account, and already have existent buckets, you can synchronize them in the app in order to start using them : menu Help -> Update S3 Buckets

    create an S3 bucket
  • Upload your project

    You have your S3 configuration ready, now it's time to have a finished project to upload. Once your project is done go to Project -> Upload Project to S3 or ⌘ + U in mac or Ctrl + U in windows

    Upload your project to S3

What can not be done

everpano 3D is obviously not a S3 manager, so there are some options that can not be achieved from with in the app, like creating users, assigning specific polices to buckets, and most important what can not be done from the app, is deleting. We created a simple yet powerful bridge to easily upload your projects to industry-leading web service provider.


What do I need

Some users may think they may need to configure an extra EC2 instance to upload a zip to S3 and then unzip it, or maybe some extra software, but the answer is, definitely NO, you just need your aws account and your everpano 3D app License. With that you can start uploading your projects at the speed of the light. We have performed some big upload test with the next results :

uploaded 20.200 files, that weight 903 MB in total in 2:20 minutes

Upload speed test

Important: upload speed will change depending on your internet connection. Those test are performed using fibre-optic internet connection


everpano UI 1.0.0 - NEW JS Plugin

Simplify the creation of virtual tours, now everpano 3D includes for free the first version of a new plugin that will make easy to create a full virtual tour with hotspots, menu with thumbnails, VR mode.

Create a nice tour, just by dragging panos to a new project, rendering it, and together with the new S3 feature, get it into production just in few minutes.

  • Foldable menu with thumbnails and pano title
  • Automatically generated perspective thumbnails
  • 3D transition when tour contains a 3D model
  • Next / previous buttons
  • VR mode
  • Fullscreen mode

<plugin name="everpano_ui" keep="true" devices="html5" url="%VIEWER%/plugins/everpano_ui.js"

    menuOpen = "0"
    menuAnimation = "1"
    showPanoTitle = "true"
    showNextPrevious = "1"
    showNPTooltips = "1"
/>

navigator Plugin 1.0.10

There are some new features in the navigator plugin :
  • new API to control the plugin walking effect from outside the plugin
    //      _                                   _             _ 
    //   __| |_ __ __ _  __ _    ___ ___  _ __ | |_ _ __ ___ | |

    //                  |___/                                   


    <layer name="walkinfo_touch" keep="true" type="text" align="bottom" y="85"
        html="drag around[br]for walking" bgalpha="0.3" devices="handheld"
        css="color:#FFFFFF;text-align:center;" txtshadow="0 1 4 0x000000 1.0"
        vcenter="true"
        width="140" height="140" bgroundedge="180"
        ondown="dragcontrol();"
    />


    <action name="dragcontrol" scope="local">
        copy(mx,mouse.x);
        copy(my,mouse.y);
        tween(caller.alpha,0);
        asyncloop(caller.pressed,
                calc(walkaround.forward, (mouse.y - my) * -0.25);
                calc(walkaround.left,    (mouse.x - mx) * -0.25);
                copy(mx, mouse.x);
                copy(my, mouse.y);
          ,
            set(walkaround.left, 0);
            set(walkaround.forward, 0);
            tween(caller.alpha,1);
        );
    </action>
  • Floor hotspots. New system to allow floor hotspots when there is no geometry in your project.
    When you create a project that does not have geometry, but has references, so panoramas are linked together, when you render that project, everpano 3D will ask if you want to give some additional usage for that tour, we have 2 options here :
    1. navigator hotspots
    2. external depthmap

    If we choose the first one, the navigator plugin will get configured so it can print the hotspots correctly.
    The next attributes allow to customize the aspect of the floor hotspots :
    floorspots = "true"
    floorstylesize = "20"
    floorstyleborder = "3"
    floorstylealpha = "0.6"
    floorstylebordercolor = "0x000000"
    floorstylecirclecolor = "0xfafafa"

    * additionally tooltips for the hotspots can be activated
    floortooltip = "true"
  • Foldable attributes in edit mode
  • Some minor improvements

UI improvements

  • A new UNDO / REDO feature has been added to make easier the modelling tasks inside the app.
    It can be used while creating geometry, moving objects, ... the undo / redo stack is cleared every time a new panorama is loaded.
    It can not be used for adding removing panoramas & references
  • Better visibility for the current selected tool
  • Press ESC to cancel a reference creation (when only first point has been done)
  • Shortcuts for every tool, so you can more easily / quickly change the tool
  • In the open project modal, double click to open the project
  • When creating a polygon or a extruded polygon you can use space to close the polygon, so you don't need to be looking back for the first point position
  • Automatically check if there is a new version

New registration system

In order to make more easy the registration system, now everpano creates a registration code, so you do not need to be entering
  • name
  • email
  • order
  • activation code


For those who already registered the software, they do not need to do nothing, their license is fully compatible.
Additionally they can generate the registration code from within the app, in case they would like to install it in a new device.
menu Help -> License Information


Click on the copy code button and the registration code will be copied to your clipboard.

Latest krpano version

It comes bundled with the latest krpano 1.20.2, and all the krpano plugins updated.

What's next - Roadmap

There are already many plans for some of the next new releases. Some of them are listed here :
  • Improved UI organization
  • More features on everpano UI
  • Measure tool for the tours
  • 3D object generation, from the model of the project
  • Floorplan creation for the navigator plugin
  • Automatically linked tours

Hi,

Download the app from here https://everpano.com/downloads as always.

Everything is bundled inside the app, yes.

There's no extra trial app, when you register with a valid code it gets out of trial, just like krpano and most apps.

If you already registered version 1.1.0 you do not need to register again, the app just get updated.

Kind regards

Hi Jordi,

Thanks for update! Love the way to "alive" the panos in a new way... *thumbsup*
Just installed the new app, but as tuur I can`t make a preview/render existing projects.
Restart the computer didn`t fixed the problem.

Moreover, I can`t even remove elements, I can add new lines and remove them, but not edit the existing ones...

If I make a new project, everything works like expected...

Installed WIN version.

Any idea?

Thanks one more time for your amazing app,
Steve

EDIT:
I dindn`t register your software yet, could that be the problem?

Hi Jordi,

the update fixed some parts (I can delete/correct my existing polygons), but I can`t preview or export the project.

Strange: When installing your updated version, everything seems to be fine, I could preview or render the project.
But after restarting my PC, I can`t make a preview or render the project. All elements listetd in the "Project Tab" can`t be selected...

What could i try? Should i send you the files?

Best regards,
Steve

EDIT:
Figured out, if the app is already open and I open an existing project, everything works fine. I can render/preview the project.
But if I have closed the app and I open my project via doubleclick the *.ever file, the preview or render option does not work!

Thanks for reporting that, I just checked and fixed. The same happens also when importing a project. I will upload a new release very soon, where this is an other small details are fixed.

Hi,

There was a small error in the windows version, that did not allow to correctly register krpano tools in everpano 3D, and so the users who have the navigator Pro Plugin, had an issue registering the plugin.

Now it's solved in the latest version, the app will notify you about the new release, and you can just download it from here :

https://everpano.com/downloads

Kind regards
