The QTVR above was recorded at the Union Station stop that is next to downtown's Hyatt Reunion Hotel and Reunion Arena. Amtrak also stops here. Union Station has been Dallas's Grand Central Station for the past century.
Dallas just got its light rail commuter train a few years ago and it has been a big success. Ridership is high (much higher than expected), it hasn't created problems, it works, and it looks great.
Controlling Quicktime VR Panoramic Movies
-first, wait for the Quicktime VR file to download (the Quicktime logo will be replaced by the opening scene of the movie).
-second, place your cursor in the QTVR window frame and click once to activate it. Now click and hold as you drag the mouse/cursor to the left and right, and up and down. The more you move to the left or right, the faster you spin. You can even take the cursor out of the frame. But you must always begin each move with the cursor within the frame. You can also use your keyboard arrow keys instead of your mouse.
- Use the Shift key to ZOOM IN / Control key to ZOOM OUT.
- In a multi-node QTVR there is a hot spot in the frame that you must find and click on in order to move to the next node. You will know that you have found the hot spot when your cursor turns into a white arrow. When it does, click the mouse button and you will be instantly transported to the next position, or node, in the sequence. Turn around, and you can backtrack.
