    The above MusicPlayer plugin is a global solution for general sound, RadiusSound plugin is for spot type sounds, this plugin together with the MusicPlayer plugin will be more than enough for any virtual tour purpose, don’t forget to louder the speakers and place them more on sides to hear the little changes that happen to several sounds in the demo

    The tooltip plugin may for some be one of the most important addition to a good player, well, this plugin can do anything you want

  3. TOMMY WIRESTAM REVIEW
    ——————————————

    Some time ago I was approached by Darek with a request to look at his program, get familiar with it and maybe convert some of my own plugins to work with it. I agree that I at first was a bit sceptical to investing valuable time in learning a new panorama software, but I have to say that it has been a very
    pleasant experience to dive into it and bit by bit discover how very well structured this program is.

    And in my opinion this program is a big step forward in the world of panorama software. The advanced features of the hotspot engine alone shows a great understanding of how to handle objects in a 2D and 3D environment.

    The player is really a dream come true for a plugin writer. You can easily decide for yourself how much of your program code – functions and variables – that you want to make available to the users. This eliminates in many cases the use of CPU consuming timer events that frequently have to check viewer actions or environmental changes. And all handling and control of the plugin from the player XML file is very straightforward. Changing plugin variables or executing one of the functions inside it, is just a simple assignment or function call.

    And equally important for a plugin writer is that you have complete access to all vital attributes and functions of the pano and hotspot engines. An extra plus is of course the fact, that you can make full use of the built-in tweening software, which is very useful in almost every plugin.

    As an example of very creative thinking is the implementation of the tag in the player control xml file. In these tags you can define a number of hotspot attributes, which can be applied to your hotspots simply by referring to the id of one or several tags. This can be a great time saver for pano tours with a lot of hotspots.

    I also think that pano tour builders will appreciate how easy it is to define your panos in the xml file, using the built-in TweenLite/TweenMax functions or the tween-filters, changing the context menu and to write your own functions.

    There might be some features missing in the 1.0 version of the player, that I – not being a professional tour builder – am not aware of. But judging from the way Darek has responded to my small suggestions, I’m certain that new updates of the player will be released frequently. Once again, the really elegant structure of the player probably makes it very much easier to implement new features.

    Let me just conclude with the fact, that I personally have no economic stake whatsoever in this product. My involvement has been purely as a tester with focus on the plugin interface during the last phase of the development. But it is with great joy that I can recommend this software to everyone who is working with panorama tours!

  4. The license of the player is designed this way that every user gets a VRSmarty Key. This key makes live easy for every virtual creator and lets him/hers sleep in peace. First of all, because the player is multidomain license, users can set your own domain they want the player work, secondly it is possible to lock a tour with an expire date and create a message for your client whet that would happen, and finally users can protect either the entire xml file or just generate a key for additional domain/s.

    Thanks Darek, for adding these comments, I guess we are all excited to meet you in Person in Palmela 2011 and be able to attend your talk there, it’s not every day that a new VR Player is born and your is starting to look like a winner.

  6. Last demo before the Conference: http://vrsmarty.com/demo.php?xmlFile=palmela/fov_demo.xml
    it is the fov and setArea function demo, very interesting I think as setArea is an extremely powerful function

    panorama area resizes using the setArea function
