What is the difference between a tour from 1.8 and 2.0?

The player. 1.8 tours used a Flash player, which is slowly being less and less supported on various platforms (notably mobile devices), whereas 2.0 tours predominantly use HTML5 which work differently when viewing offline.


Does Panotour Pro 2.0 open projects done with 1.8 ?

Yes, but it does not import all the data of the 1.8 project. Panotour Pro 2.0 is a complete rewrite, with many different concepts.


What is imported from a 1.8 project ?

  • Panoramas
    • the source file(s) of the panorama
    • the name of the panorama
    • the default view of the panorama
  • Spots
    • the location of the spots
    • the tooltip of the spot
    • the target of the spot if the spot is linked to a panorama*
    • the spot view if the spot has a targeted panorama
  • Lensflares

*Any other type of hotspot (image, video, sound) will be automatically converted into a navigational spot, which is the default hotspot. They will have to be recreated and replaced, either by creating new point spot styles or placing image or video spots.
