3DVista Virtual Tours Pro first look

My journey learing to work with 3DVista VT

My first impression of the interface is looks a bit overwelming and not very clean. But you get used to it. It is software that is written based on Adobe AIR and I guess this has some limitations. There is a bit of a learning curve to this, but once you get a grasp of the workflow you will be able to quickly create some impressive immersive tours. The creators of the software are constantly updating the product and adding new features. So i believe this software is pretty future proof.

I have been exploring the trial version for only 4 days now and I already have created a virtual tour with embedded video’s – even some green screen experiments, amazing zoom transitions, a nice skin with menu’s, a loader screen that show a video, and a lot more. And I have still stuff to discover.

I am a big fan of their adaptive HDR technology. If I could I would use this in every panorama, but at this moment there are some limitations. You cannot add polygon hotspots, or video hotspots of overlays to a panorama of this type. The same goes for the live panorama which is another great feature, but still has some limitations.

What I would like to see added

  • The ability to copy/paste hotspots
  • The ability to favorite images. As it is right now, when you want to add an image as a hotspot you have to scroll through a lot of images. Even if you want to use the same image over and over again, you always have to go through the same process.
  • The ability to add your own CSS to overlay text boxes
