you can use my QTVRControlX
(http://members.fortunecity.com/birbilis/QT4Delphi - see the FAQ and the
DOWNLOAD sections) or possibly SkyLight Pro or similar ActiveX control
the views can be (name, pan, tilt, fieldOfView) records in a memory array or
in a database you connect to
at a record change you'd fetch these values and then do
or something like that
am I missing something here though? Do you mean something like the
"viewpoints" in VRML and 3D stuff?
I don't know if a movie can contain such viewpoints (info to predefined
views). Others on this list should know more on this one...
However one can have a multinode movie and move from node to node, but I
don't know either whether two nodes can share the same image and just
different view settings (pan+tilt+fieldOfView) [cause replicating the image
for each node is overkill]
if you write QT code then you can store this info in the movies user data
and read it from the movie file instead from a database...
