Changelog

Panotour / Panotour Pro 2.5

New Features

Video support

Panotour Pro is now able to manage spherical and flat videos as standard scenes.
With this new feature come 2 new plugins "Video Control Bar" and a "Video Progress Bar", and a new button combination in standard control bars "Play/Pause" to play/pause the video.

Stereoscopic 3D video support

This version supports stereoscopic videos scenes.
The stereoscopic format can be selected between Top-Bottom and Side-By-Side.

HMD support

Tours generated by Panotour Pro are compatible with HMD (Cardboards, Homido, VR One, ColorCrossVR, Oculus DK1 and DK2, GearVR*), if they contain spherical scenes. * partial support
With this feature come two new plugins, "WebVR button" that allows the user to enter VR mode on mobiles, and a "Prev/Next Keys" plugin to allow the user to change scene with keyboard while the HMD is on.

Web Content spots

With Panotour Pro, you can now add any web page in a distorted spot in your tour, over a wall, a screen, etc... just like you already do with images and videos.
Add a booking form over a table, a youtube video on a TV screen, etc... easily.

Social buttons

A new plugin to be able to add the Facebook, Twitter and Google+ share and like/+1 buttons over the tour.

Analytics plugin

Add your Google Analytics tracking ID and you'll be able to follow the loading of all scenes.

Loading transition plugin

This new plugin allows you to change the way the new loaded panorama appears over the older one.
The animations only appear with HTML5 player when WebGL is activated.

New actions

There are many new available actions into the "view control": zoom in/out, move left/right/top/bottom, look to.
Some HTML5 plugins (Gallery, Social Share, PDF viewer, Web video viewer, Website viewer) receive the open, close and toggle actions.
Some plugins (SmallGalleryBar, Compass, Radar, Simple button, Toggle button, WebVR button) receive the show, hide and toggle actions.
Snow and Rain plugins receive the start, stop and toggle actions.

XML files generation enhanced

If your project is already built, the tour generation generates only the XML files.
We enhanced the performance of this generation, so you'll be able to see your modifications faster on a large tour with many scenes, many plugins and/or many spots.

Improved Tiles generation

Due to issues on mobile devices, MS Edge browser with WebGL renderer, the tiles of all full spherical panoramas are now resized to 512x512 pixels.
/!\ WARNING: If your project is already built, all full spherical panoramas tiles will be rebuilt during next build to store tiles as 512x512 pixels sets.
/!\ WARNING: If, in a previous version, you locked spherical panoramas to not generate their tiles anymore, you'll have to unlock them during first build.

Automatic scaling on mobile devices

UI elements of the tour are automatically scaled on mobile devices.
A new option in the Build properties allows you disable this option.

UI Enhancements

Plugin Enhancements

Tour

Tour language and generated files

If you run Panotour Pro in another language than english, Panotour Pro will generate a "messages" xml file suffixed by the language used in Panotour Pro.
For example if you run PTP in german, and if your main tour file is mytour.html, the messages file is now mytour_messages_de.xml.
A new advanced option in the Build properties, allow you to generate multiple languages files according to a list of languages you want to embed in your tour.
A new advanced action allows you to switch from a language to another using those new files.
Panotour Pro does not any translation, you'll have to edit the generated files to translate your tour messages. Make sure you you back these edited files up, they will be overwritten if you build the tour again.

Player

This version of Panotour/Panotour Pro generates tours using the third pre-release of 1.19 version of krpano

Limitations

Video scenes and Spots

Spots are static spots. Their positions are fixed in the sphere (or in the plane for planar video scenes) for the duration of the video .

Video scenes and HMD

To be displayed correctly on Android phones on VR mode, tours should contain only one video scene.
To play a video on a mobile, users have to interact with the device, so mixing multiple videos in a single VR tour would require touching the mobile screen while it's on the head.
Windows Phone are not able to display spherical video scenes. They will be displayed as a flat video over the tour. So hotspots on videos are not displayed too.
Spots that do not load another full spherical panorama are removed from the VR tour, except picture spots that do nothing.
Polygon spots that load a panorama are converted into your default point spot.
If your video scene file has sound, you have to set also a sound track to let this sound be played on iPhone

Web Content spots

Those spots are available only in Panotour Pro.
They are displayed in the HTML5 player only, and they work great with the standard projection. If you change the projection of the viewer (Little Planet, Architectural, etc...) they will not exactly match the wanted area.

/!\ Warnings

Tiles generation

If your project is already built, all full spherical panoramas tiles will be built during next build to store tiles as 512x512 pixels sets.
If, in a previous version, you locked spherical panoramas to not generate their tiles anymore, you'll have to unlock them during first build.

Internet Explorer 8 support

Google discontinued support of Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) for the Google Maps Javascript API v3 around August 31st 2015.
IE8 is no longer supported by many websites, including Google Apps and Google Analytics.
Microsoft has annouced that they will no longer support IE8 from January 2016 for desktop operating systems.
Kolor will also discontinue support of IE8 into Panotour exports progressively.
So we recommend that all users upgrade to more modern browsers.

Custom HTML templates

Custom HTML templates have to be updated to be able to use the VR mode of tours
So if you are using some HTML templates based on those available on Panotour Pro documentation page, download their new version and update your own templates according to this new version.
http://www.kolor.com/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_-_Advanced_-_HTML_Templates#Examples_of_Custom_HTML_Templates

Third-Party plugins

We did a fix on the all the plugins samples available on Panotour Pro documentation website.
So if you are using some plugins samples available there, download their new version and update your own plugins according to this new version.
http://www.kolor.com/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_-_Advanced_-_Extra_Plugins#Free_plugins

Panorama specific plugins

If your projects use some panorama specific plugins, you downloaded on our documentation dedicated page (Extra plugins), then update those plugins. If you don't your tours may not work due to krpano changes in the management of variables.

For third party plugins developers

The 1.19 version of krpano manages additions/substraction during conditional tests. This new ability induces some errors if your code contains some variables with a minus "-" or "+" sign.

Changelog

Panotour / Panotour Pro 2.3.1


MacOS

We upgraded the graphical library used by Panotour/PanotourPro on MacOS.
The refresh of the graphical interface should now be faster.
Some crashes that happened on MacOS may be fixed now as they seemed to occur in some display processes that are not called anymore, but as we never reproduced them, we cannot ensure it.

Yosemite support is still in progress. Main features of the interface are working now, but Fullscreen for example is still buggy.

Linux

This version fixes a major issue on Linux. Users do not have to register every time they run Panotour/PanotourPro any more.

Windows

If you faced some crashes on Windows 32bits, this version may not fix them. We are still working on this major issue.


Use new krpano released version 1.18.2


HTML samples have been enhanced

If you used some custom templates found on the sample page (http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_Pro_2_-_HTML_Templates#EXAMPLES_OF_CUSTOM_HTML_TEMPLATES) or if you created your own HTML template based on those samples, then you should download the new ones.

Important

MacOS X Yosemite will be supported in Panotour Pro 2.4 release.

Panotour/Panotour Pro 2.4 version when released will run on :
- MacOS 10.8 or higher
- Windows 7 or higher
- Ubuntu 14 or higher

Changelog

Panotour / Panotour Pro 2.3

Important

Many crashes were reported with Panotour/Panotour Pro 2.2.0 version on MacOS.
It is highly recommended to update to this new version for all users on MacOS who experienced crashes with the previous version.

New Features

Backup project files

A new general option in the settings allows you to create a backup timestamped version of your project file each time you save it, allowing you to archive automatically your work.

Polygonal hotspots are now working on HTML5 player

PanotourMaps plugin

Add support of Yandex maps layer

Social Share plugin

Add support of Digg, Tumblr, Delicious, Reddit and StumbleUpon
Add possibility to resize the buttons displayed in the plugin
Add possibility to display the iframe code to embed the tour

Enhanced start options

Add new start options to hide hotspots, pause sounds and pause autorotation when the splashscreen is displayed

Mouse cursor

Ability to enable/disable the default and dedicated mouse cursor

Tooltips

Add support of rounded edges for tooltips

Double Click plugin

Add possibility to zoom in on double click

Gyroscope plugin

Support Android Chrome, Android Firefox and Windows Phone / IE11

FPS plugin

This new plugin available in Panotour Pro allows you to display the Frame rate (Frames per second) of your tour

New action : display a Web video

This action allows you to display a video hosted on Youtube or Vimeo directly from a spot, a button or any other action caller.

Context menu can be displayed on touch devices

Press and hold your finger to make the context menu appear.
You can disable context menu on touch device with an option in Context Menu plugin.

The regression that broke the panorama and group placement at each project opening is now fixed. Panoramas and groups are positioned correctly.

Changes

HTML templates enhancements

We added some internal templates that ease the creation of HTML templates.
But all your previous custom HTML templates have to be upgraded using new internal templates.
Simply have a look at the templates delivered with Panotour Pro to know the changes you need to do in your custom templates.

Gyroscope and Gyroscope buttons in control bars

We added the possibility to enable/disable the gyroscope feature based on the kind of device on which the tour is displayed.
Additionally, the button that enables/disables the gyroscope on mobiles and tablets, did the opposite of what it should have done.
This bug was not noticeable until we did some changes in the gyroscope management templates.
So we changed all the control-bars delivered with Panotour/Panotour Pro to fix their Gyro buttons.
If you are using custom control bars and if these bars use a Gyro button based on ours you'll have to change the code of this button.

Use new krpano panorama player version 1.18.1

Tours generated with Panotour Pro 2.3 version use last krpano 1.18.1 version.

Important

MacOS Yosemite will be supported in Panotour Pro 2.4 release.

Panotour/Panotour Pro 2.4 version when released will run on :
- MacOS 10.8 or higher
- Windows 7 or higher
- Ubuntu 14 or higher

Changelog

Panotour / Panotour Pro 2.2 FINAL

Main changes

Export the tour as a single file

Kolor releases a new, free viewer that allows you to display virtual tours offline: Panotour Viewer.

Panotour now allows you to export your tours in a single file with PTV format.
This file can be opened by Panotour Viewer on desktops, tablets and mobiles.

You can share your tours more easily than before or show your tours on your tablets with no need of internet connection.

Parallax Spots

Picture and video spots can be created with a parallax effect that will give depth to your tours.

Look at this tour to see what you can do.

Galleries: add multiple files at once

Galleries plugin can now be filled easily by selecting multiple files at once.

Sounds: better sound management

Sound management has been enhanced to be able to have different sound sources in a tour : videos, sound spots, background sounds, etc....
A new action is added, to be able to play a standard sound on a spot, and not a 3D sound like in the already existing action.

Plugins and HTML template development

Plugins developers can now use libraries shared between all their plugins.
HTML template developpers can include some ressources in their templates. They will be automatically copied in the generated tour.

Changelog

Panotour / Panotour Pro 2.1.1

Main changes

- LivePano wizard correctly handles Autopano 3.5 project files.
In some cases, they were not handled correcly and the generated video contained some black areas on borders.

- The nadir can be patched on panoramas created from cube faces import.

- All needed libraries are installed on Linux when installing Panotour.

- Cube faces for mobiles are generated, and are used on Android browsers that do not handle multiresolution.

Plugins development changes

- Resources of a plugin can be written with same substructure in the generated tour as in the plugin directory.
This small feature, needed only by plugins developpers, was mandatory for the Panotag plugin that will be available soon.

2.1.0 - 2014-04-28

Changelog

Panotour / Panotour Pro 2.1

Main changes

Ricoh Theta support

Panotour automatically detects your panoramas shot with a Ricoh Theta device.
If the gyroscope settings of your Theta during the shooting indicates that the panorama is not leveled, Panotour asks you if you want to automatically fix the horizon.
If you answer yes, a new file will be generated, and this new file will be used instead of the original Theta file.

We added two new presets dedicated to Ricoh Theta virtual tours, to enhance your Theta experience.

You can have look at the following video, to see how easy it is to create a tour with a Ricoh Theta:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH5dkiRxLVo

Here are two virtual tours created in Panotour with images shot with a Ricoh Theta and with these new presets:
http://www.kolor.com/virtual-tours/20140409-kolor-theta-simple/
http://www.kolor.com/virtual-tours/20140409-kolor-theta-groups/

Loading time reduced by up to 100x when opening a project

Loading a saved project in Panotour is now incredibly fast.

When you save a project, Panotour now saves 2 files.
A ".kpt" file, like before, containing all the source data of the project and all its parameters.
And a new ".cache" file.
This new file contains some optional data used during the loading of a project and during the build of a tour.
This file can be lost without any incidence on your project, except the performance during load and build times.

Just a quick bench done on the project of the "Lac du Bourget" tour : Le Lac du Bourget
This tour contains 23 panoramas including 3 gigapixels.

Loading this project took 22 minutes with version 2.0.
Once saved with version 2.1, the loading takes 12 seconds only!
In this case the opening is 100x faster!

Memory usage significantly reduced

The new ".cache" file stores a resized version of your panoramas.
When Panotour loads a project, it doesn't load the full resolution version of your panoramas anymore, but their smaller version.

The full resolution version of the panoramas is automatically loaded during the build stage if required, or you can load it by yourself in the hotspot editor, if you think that the reduced version of the panorama is too small to place your spots correctly.

If the panorama had been previously built and if it does not need to be built again, the full resolution version of the panorama won't be loaded.

Reduced build time

When Panotour builds a tour, it cuts each panorama into many tiles for a dynamic and smooth loading of the tour in a browser. When you build the tour once again, Panotour checks if all the tiles have already been correctly generated. This step can take a long time on big panoramas or if your project contains a lot of panoramas.

You can avoid this check on each panorama, by telling Panotour to not generate its tiles.

When a panorama is marked "Do not generate tiles", a new icon appears over its thumbnail in the main area of Panotour to indicate which panorama will not be built anymore.
You can uncheck this option at any moment.

http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_Pro_2_-_Tour_-_Picture/panorama_properties

Benefit of Autopano 3.5 improvements for Livepano generation

The Livepano wizard now supports Autopano 3.5 projects.

Virtual tour enhancements

Customize tooltips styles as you want

Tooltip styles can be customized either globally or per plugin.
http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_Pro_2_-_Tour_-_Project_properties

Add play and pause buttons over video spots to ease user experience

Cursors related to the tour control mode are displayed on Flash tours

Titles and captions can be added to each image of your gallery


Minor enhancements

New Generation Methods

3 generations methods for the tiles can be used to build a tour:

- The default, and recommended one, builds only the necessary tiles of all panoramas except those marked as "Do not generate tiles".
- The second one generates all tiles of all panoramas except those marked as "Do not generate tiles".
- And the third one forces a full generation of all tiles of all panoramas whatever their status.
http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_Pro_2_-_Build_tab

You can customize the spot style of automatically geolocalized spots

When you geolocalize a panorama and decide to automatically create a spot at this location, you can now change the style and the tooltip of this automatic spot.

Bing Maps layer usage inside Panotour Pro

You can now set your geolocalized spots over a Bing Maps layer inside Panotour Pro.
This layer requires a key to be used. This key is used internally, it may be different of the one set in the PanotourMaps plugin parameter.
The key can be entered in the Preferences window, or directly in the spot editor.

Add a specific thumbnail for your tour that will be displayed on social media when sharing it

In the Project properties, you can select a specific thumbnail, on the left of the project name.
This thumbnail will be copied in the tour and used by social media when the tour will be shared.
http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_Pro_2_-_Tour_-_Project_properties

Generated tours use krpano 1.17 final release

Panotour is now available in Turkish


Important

Projects are now saved in a way that does not depend on the language you choosed to run Panotour.
That was the case with 2.0 projects.
So when you will open a project saved with version 2.0, you'll have to run Panotour with the language used to save this project.
If you do not so, you may loose some actions on some plugins and spots.
Once this project will be saved with version 2.1, you will be able to open it whatever the language used to run Panotour.

Linux 32bits and MacOS SnowLeopard are no more supported
