    QTVR movie MIAW issues

    martynrlee
      Hi all,

      Just wondering if anyone has encountered this problem or can help me out in anyway.

      I am currently producing a director portfolio for a company specialising in 360 VR tours. I have a director projector as main interface then run seperate MIAWs from this projector to showcase each client. All the QTVR files run fine during testing in director but when the main interface is published and the MIAWs are called from the projector, i cant control the QTVR movies using the mouse. I can if i take off direct to stage, but this results in sluggish performance.

      Can anyone offer any advice. Should I be preloading the QTVR movies? I tried using the interface projector to trigger another projector. The QTVR works fine in that case, but I would prefer it all contained in one tab and dont want to clog CPU.

      Thanks.

          I haven't worked with QTVR, but have a possible test you might try.

          If your QT sprites are beginning in frame 1 of the MIAW, try starting it in
          frame 2 instead.

            When I work with QTVR, I generally prefer to ditch the default QTVR controls
            and control the movie via my own scripts. It's easy enough to set up a
            system of rollovers to make the movie pan and tilt more naturally. (I find
            the average user doesn't know how to use QTVR unless you specifically tell
            them. Having to click and drag to move the camera is not immediately
            intuitive. Most people just sit there wondering why nothing's happening, or
            they'll just click a few times, and again nothing happens until you drag, so
            they get lost.)
