360-deg FLASH Panoramas

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Wed Jun 04, 2008 10:52 am

This past winter I started created Flash versions of the summit panoramas so they would look more realistic when panning around, but I never finished. Well, MtnHermit recently reminded me of that project when he posted a coupld of great panos from the Winfield area. By tomorrow, I'll have small (appox. 1MB) and large (approx. 8MB) Flash versions of all 52 360-summit pans on the site.

Here's an example of how the page will look for each one: Sunshine Peak: 360 Summit Pans (JPEG and FLASH)
Just click on one of the Flash buttons to display the pano. Using the Flash control, you can move throughout the photo, zoom in and out, and view in FULL SCREEN (this is a good one).

I'm using my regular pano files as input to the Flash versions, so the ends don't meet up because I didn't use 360-degree "wrapping" when I created them. No biggie, you still get the spinning and 3D effect. Maybe someday I'll go back and re-seam the ends...

You're the first one to mention the "Wind" option. I put that out there a while back. :lol:

Christof would be proud... I can practically feel the wind in my hair. Nice touch.

Oh that's hillarious. Adjust volume as necessary to increase or decrease wind speed.

Turn up your speakers, or put on your headphones, or unmute your audio (start-control panel-sounds, speech & audio devices-adjust the system voume-deselect unmute)... or whatever you need to do to get sound to come out of your PC. Click Cue Wind. Pick one of the Flash demos, and then select the clockwise button. Sit and spin :-)
