Subject: FLASH: Re: Flash and panoramas

The movie canvas size does not matter, the frame rate does not matter. You
can just experiment to find out the number of frames, add 20-something and
you'll see when it disappears.

I know I can use the embed tags to control pan and tilt values, but this can
not be done in real-time, it would involve rewriting the HTML page

I did however figure out to do this, using a software called Live Stage. It
basically involves creating the flash content in flash and then opening the
QTVR in LiveStage and drop the SWF in. This gives me access to all the flash
buttons and actions I've created so that I can apply these to control
anything I want inside the QTVR.

I'll be working on a demo of this next week, if you're interested I'll point
you to an example when it is finished. Mail me off-list.
