QuickTime Tour Help
Navigating Panoramas:
Using the Basic Controls to view a panoramic movie: click and hold the mouse button down and drag across the image in the direction you want to look. To zoom in and out, click and hold down the + button (zoom in) down or click and hold the - button (zoom out) down. You may zoom in and out using the keyboard as long as the mouse is over the panorama. Hold the shift key down to zoom in. Hold the control key down to zoom out.

Finding and Using Hot Spots:
Hot spots are areas within a panorama which are links to another campus location/panorama. Clicking on a hot spot will take you to the corresponding campus location. Where are the hot spots that create links from location to location? Move your mouse pointer around the movie image. When moved over a hot spot, the active icon changes from a bulls eye to a finger and globe, denoting that area is a hot spot. Clicking on the question mark arrow button in the control bar below the panorama manually shows and hides hot spots (Mac users double-click the arrow button to show and hide hot spots). When Hot spots are turned on they appear as translucent blue rectangles.

Q: I have a modem dial-up connection. How long does it take to download a panoramic movie in Pomona's VR Tours?
A: The average size of the panoramas are about 350K. This would take a standard modem approximately 60 seconds to download.
Q: Why are there two identical VR tours (QuickTime and Java)?
A: QuickTime offers better performance when viewing 360-degree panoramic movies. However, some computer users may not be able to acquire QuickTime or don't have the time to download it. Because of this we have created the Java Tour. Other than a slight variation in image and panning quality (QuickTime provides slightly better viewing), the tours are identical.
