Version 3.0 of Tourweaver Virtual Tour Software Released

The new version notably adds support for Flash-based virtual tours.

Virtual tours are increasingly popular in the real estate, tourism and restaurant/hotel industries. Tourweaver is a Windows-based application, provided in both Standard and Professional editions, which can be used to create virtual tours, complete with sound, that can be viewed on any Flash-enabled system. Supported import types include spherical panorama, cylindrical panorama, Kaidan one shot, 0-360 one shot, remote reality one shot, still image and single fisheye.

The resulting tours can include multiple panoramas, maps/floor plans, hotspots, radar and links, to present the tour in an interactive manner. For example, buttons can trigger such functions as script execution or the sending of email. A selection of free viewer tour skins is now also available for download.

Version 3.0 moves Tourweaver firmly in the direction of a Flash-based production tool, and adds the display of a map in the top-right corner when the tour is displayed fullscreen. The Professional version adds support for multiple maps in one tour, output to video, personalized preloading image, as well as enhanced viewer interface capabilities.

Tourweaver Standard 3.0 is available for purchase on the Easypano site for $199.95, with the Pro version priced at $699.95. Demos of both versions are available for download.
