AllowFullScreen

I love making 360o panoramas and want to display them using flash .swf.files. Please see thos low-resolution example:
http://home.no.net/venleg/
The rightmost button is supposed to open the picture to full screen, but it seems that I have to do two modifications to the source code:
For Internet Explorer:

To make this work with Firefox, Opera, Safari etc.
I will also need to add AllowFullScreen = “true” within “embed” tags.

Preferably this should be saved in a master-page so I could forget about it when making my pages. How do I go about this?

You can add these properties using the Item / Extended dialog. Make sure the Embed segment is selected, then press New, enter the name/value pair in the dialog, and publish. Even though it says Embed, the property will be added to the object, too.

Thank you, works fine!
Next question: How do I make an .swf-file (VR-picture) automatically enlarge to fill the browser window (not the whole screen). I tried the Full Page Flash-action, but it left a white pane to see and nothing else.

I am hoping that Keith Martin can chime in here, since that’s his
speciality. (VR, not just chiming in.)

I’ve found that the simplest way to do this - at the moment - is to
make the page elsewhere, NOT in Freeway. I’m afraid I had trouble
getting things to scale to the browser window in a manner that was
reliable across platforms and browsers.

I’ve let Softpress know about this, but for now I use a specialist
tool called Pleinpot (http://www.qtbridge.com/pleinpot/pleinpot.html)
to create a set of pages that shows a panorama in QuickTime or
redirecting to Flash if QT isn’t available. The panorama is set to
scale to the window, and the window is set to fill the screen when it
opens.

Getting the panorama to fill the window is done by setting it to be
100% width and height and putting it in a table structure that’s also
set to be 100% width and 92% height (allowing 8% for an info panel).

I tried doing this in a div in Freeway with a modified QuickTime
Extras action to set up the QT panorama… but IE/Windows collapsed
the div down to zero pixels width and height, or at best showed the
pano as a thin horizontal sliver.

The issue is all about avoiding the bloody stupid failings of IE.
Sadly, this was the one case where I simply couldn’t solve the
problem in Freeway.

Pleinpot is 25 euros. It is a highly specialised tool, just meant for
getting VR panorama content online, but it is very good at what it
does. You can use this to deliver just Flash content if you prefer,
or set up a range of various outputs - QTVR, Flash, Java
(Immervision), Shockwave (SPi-V), DevalRV, and Pangea. You can also
include external MP3 audio, add directional navigation controllers,
and batch-process content.

You can see one kind of output from Pleinpot on my
http://www.panoramapostcards.co.uk/ site, and examples are also on
the Pleinpot home page.

Elfinn, how do you make your ‘VR-picture’? Is this a VR panorama, or
is it something different? Could you post a link to it?

OK! Great! I already have several of you gurus on my «Beer is on me!»-list. Welcome to Haugesund, Norway.

Actually, I had Pleinpot in my Application-folder, but didn´t think of it in this context. Will play with it for a while.

Heh. It might happen one day! A good Norwegian
friend keeps telling me to go see the country,
and another good friend from back in my college
days, also Norwegian, still lives there. AND it
looks like a truly nice place. :slight_smile:

There can’t be many people around that just
happen to have that app handy. So you are
involved in VR panorama creation then? Let me
know when there’s something online that I can see!

I dabling in VR. The lasst year aehv been spent shooting and stitching panoramas, but the design of my web-pages are not something to be proud of, so they are mostly stuck on my harddrive. I used Adobe Golive for the web-pages, but Adobe stopped it. Dreamweaver seems a bit heavy to learn for a photographer/layoutguy like me. I was happy to find Freeway and have been evaluating it.

But I do spend time learning Freeway and do hope it is the future for me.

For the panoramas I use Realviz Stitcher. The flash files are made using Pano2VR. I liked the concept of having just one .swf-file to publish. Now it seems I have to use Pleinpot.
As this is not a VR-forum, we will not bother the others with exciting details of cameras, lenses, VR-heads, sharpening and other aspects of the trade, maybe I can contact you off list? Your VRs are just so beautiful, I would really like to learn some of your secrets.

A good point. I sometimes forget that not everyone is as obsessively
interested in everything as I am. :slight_smile:

By all means lets keep talking off-list. I’ll ping you an email directly.
