I see alot of users wanting to create 360 spinning images with varying degrees of control in Intuiface. I’m proposing one solution, with some constrictions, that I think would be an easy add for the development team.
I’ve created a fly-around animation of a car, with 4 distinct stops in the motion, and a nice ease in and out of each stop, with the end frame flying back to the first position, completing a perfect spin. My thought was to have 4 buttons in Intuiface that would represent each of the 4 stops. In order to play smoothly, I’d have to only offer 2 buttons at a time…for instance if the car was rotated to position “2”, then the user could only select “3” or “1”, and the video would either play forwards or backwards. But the motion would be seamless and smooth since the ease is already baked into the animation and there is only ever 1 video file being played and paused which Intuiface does quite well.
In order to create this we would need the ability to play a video asset from one defined frame to another, both forward and reverse. Since some of this functionality exists already, my hope is that it would be an easy add. I know this won’t solve the many different requests coming in for 360 interactive, but its one more bit of capability that would provide some options.
