Hotspots help users engage more deeply with tours. “Out-of-World” Hotspots will help end users interact with content in new, more connecting and customizable ways. Take a peek at some examples on the first stop of Tat’s tour of Mount Rainier National Park.
What does “Out-of-World” mean?
“In-World” (IW) is how Hotspots have displayed inside our 360 tours. They are projected into the panorama or 360° Video.
“Out-of-World” (OOW) gives Hotspots a new display option. They open outside of the panorama or 360° Video in a separate viewer.
Image, Audio, and Text Hotspots have “in-world” and “out-of-world” display options
All “out-of-world” Hotspots will not display in VR mode to maintain immersion
“Out-of-world” Hotspots are accessible to screen reader users
