Hi

I am trying to make a movie to put on a web page which is like a 360 panorama made from static photographs.

I have taken the photogrpahs already and they stitch together quite nicely.

The software that came with the camera was able to create a flash movie (swf) from this and I managed to get this displaying on a web page but I have the following problems:

1. The name of the software is all over the end result. I want something clean.

2. Movie is showing in IE7 but not Firefox (this is probably just a Drupal issue that I could get to the bottom of)

3. Also - I don't expect my browsers to have a lot of experience and the swf movie I've got needs you to move your cursor about to pan left and right. I'd rather have something that starts playing straight off (looping if possible) and something with really intuitive controls if users want to stop it and look left and right.

4. And... I don't want to pay NUTHIN!

Pretty demanding huh? Or perhaps someone can tell me that FLickr or Photobucket or something can do what I want. Perhaps there's some awesome free software that can do this.

Love to hear your thoughts... and if you've done any sweet examples of panoramas, let me know where I can see them...

Thanks for ANY help

Love you all

Dr Paul

Can't help.

Usually this is done by nesting an embed element inside the object element. It's not valid HTML, but FF/Moz needs embed and IE, object. The best alternative is to use SWFObject, which gets rid of the gray line in IE ("click here to activate this control") and serves both browsers. Samples of both freely available in searches.

3. I don't expect my browsers to have a lot of experience ... I'd rather have something that starts playing straight off

Can't help, unless you construct in Flash, which #4 negates.

4. And... I don't want to pay NUTHIN!

Haven't used it, but a lot of posts here seem to indicate Swish is a decent open source alternative.

tried the free trial with Swish and got the results I wanted. For anyone else who wants a Flash solution I would say take a look. I found it fairly intuitive and so on.

I don't need any other flash right now - so I'm not going to pay to get the prgoram.

I'm sure some free stuff will be along shortly anyway. It seems that's the way teh world is going - lol!
