Basically, every single panorama you want to include in your Virtual tour is a scene. Under Scenes you get the following options:
Set as default: If you select “Yes” then the current scene will be the default scene to be viewed at first when the virtual tour is loaded. (FYI: You must mark it yes for any one of the scenes for the virtual tour to work.)
Scene ID: Scene ID is the initialization of a scene. You need to assign a unique scene ID to every scene you wish to upload.
You can also use the Scene ID to assign a scene as the Target Scene under Hotspot, i.e. clicking on the hotspot will take you to this scene. You will get a guide to this under the “HotSpot” section of this document.
Scene Type: Scene type is set as ‘equirectangular’ for now. It means that it will view equirectangular format of a scene panorama image.
Scene Upload: Upload a panorama image to use it as your current scene. Just click on the “UPLOAD” button and add a media image. (For this to work properly, you should use a 360 panoramic image.)
Once you upload the image, a thumbnail will appear above the upload button.
This will mean that the image is uploaded as the current scene image. (We suggest you use images with size up to 4096 px by 2000 px for the tour to be fully responsive on all devices. Larger images won’t be supported by mobile devices.)
Preview: Once you have uploaded the image, you can now click on the Preview button to get a Tour preview of the tour just the Scene Settings below. Every time you make changes to any settings, you can click on the Preview button to see the changes taking effect on the tour preview.
Finding Pitch and Yaw:
You will be needing Pitch and Yaw values to set up many features in the Scene Settings and Hotspot Settings. Here are instructions on how to collect the Pitch and Yaw.
After you click on the “Preview” button and load the preview of the tour below, you can click anywhere on the tour preview and you will see some values appearing below the tour preview.
As indicated, these numbers are the values of Pitch and Yaw coordinates of the point where you clicked.
Example: Let’s say you wish to add a Hotspot at the center of this table (on the picture). Simply click on the center of the table, and you will see the values of Pitch and Yaw coordinates will update. You can then collect these values and use them to indicate the position where the hotspot will be placed. (This will get more clear as you apply the instructions and read this documentation further.)
Title: You add a Title to name the virtual tour, your company or the location of the tour, etc.
Author: You add Author name below the Title, to indicate who made it or who owns it, etc.
Set default scene face: If you turn it “On”, you will get fields to input Pitch and Yaw for setting up a default scene face.
This will indicate the face of this particular scene, that will load first when someone enters this scene. Hence, browse through the preview and select your desired scene face. Collect the Pitch and Yaw for that position and input them in two required fields.
Limit vertical scene grab: You can set a limit to how far a person can vertically move on a particular scene. Which means that you can set a limit to the amount a person can look up or down. Once you turn it “On”, you will get two fields that will ask for Max Pitch and Min Pitch.
You can set the range from 90 to –90 according to your own convenience. (We advise you to always keep Max Pitch positive and Min Pitch negative.)
Limit Horizontal Scene Grab: You can set a limit to how far a person can horizontally move on a particular scene. Which means that you can set a limit to the amount a person can look left or right. Once you turn it “On”, you will get two fields that will ask for Max Yaw and Min Yaw.
You can set the range from 180 to –180 according to your own convenience. (We advise you to always keep Max Yaw positive and Min Yaw negative.)
Customize scene zoom: Turning it “On” will give you fields to set parameters for zooming feature. You can set limits to how much a person can zoom in or zoom out.
You can set the range from 50 to 120 according to your own convenience.
The Default Zoom field indicates how much a scene will be zoomed in/out by default when someone enters that scene.
The Max Zoom field is for you to set the maximum amount a person can zoom out.
The Min Zoom field is for you to set the maximum amount a person can zoom it.
**Make sure to keep Max Zoom greater than or equal to Default Zoom.
**Make sure Min Zoom is always lower than Default Zoom and Max Zoom, or else the zoom feature won’t work.
