add sound accompaniment both for the virtual tour in general and for individual panoramas

One of the possibilities of the TrueVirtualTours service is the ability to add sound accompaniment both for the virtual tour in general and for individual panoramas. This video shows an example of how you can use background music for a virtual tour in general, and voice acting for individual panoramas.

The background musical composition begins to play after the user clicked on the panorama or began to rotate it. The sound of individual panoramas is turned on when switching to a panorama. It is possible for the user to disable both background sound and playback of panorama sound files.

How to add sound to a virtual tour?

  1. Switch to virtual tour editing mode.
  2. Upload mp3 sound files for the entire virtual tour and/or for individual panoramas.

Warning. By uploading audio files to TrueVirtualTours, you confirm that you have the right to use these files. Otherwise, the sound files will be deleted from the TrueVirtualTours website.

    Hello Victor. The audio track loaded for the virtual tour is played without stopping - uninterruptedly (see an example of a virtual tour in this article). Audio tracks loaded for separate panoramas are played only when viewing a certain panorama. I think it would be possible to add the option of continuous playback of the audio track also for a separate panorama. I'll see if it can be implemented.

    Good morning. Tell me if there is a possibility of continuous playback of sound
    new track? Well, that is, so that the sound does not end in a constant loop.

    Thanks for the comment. I think later it will be possible to add the ability to set the initial sound level.

    Added sound to the virtual tour, it turned out very cool! It’s only a pity that it plays very loudly and there is no way to muffle it when loading!

How to animate a panoramic photo

Some users to whom I sent links to view panoramic photos could not at first figure out how to properly rotate the panorama around me, or at first did not realize that the wheel could zoom in or out the scene.  For such cases, the True Virtual Tours website has a Video Editor feature. In case of its application, before the user who opened the panorama by the link, the script of the "flyby" invented by you immediately starts. That is, the camera rotates or focuses as you yourself previously configured. Thus, you helped our customer to quickly examine the space around "himself" in a panoramic picture and at the same time encouraged him to think that he could perform the same actions with the help of the mouse buttons or the wheel.
