Flash Animations Over Quicktime Hotspots

Jun 27, 2002

At the end of each tunnel there is a hotspot. As the mouse passes over a hotspot, a flash animation is triggered. No matter what angle you are viewing the hotspot from, the animation always plays over the hotspot.

This technique can also be used to display an information box or animated icon over a point of interest in a panorama.

When the mouse passes over a hotspot, a wired event is triggered in Quicktime which grabs the coordinates of the mouse on the screen. These coordinates are then sent to the Flash track, and the animation is told to play at that location. This 'wiring' was accomplished with the help of VRHotwires. To learn more about authoring movies using this technique, take a look at the tutorial.
