Newbie Question: Force QT navigation as default

Hi guys,
New user here.
Sorry for asking this newbie question, but how do I make my pano's default to using the "QuickTime" style movement mode?
Thanks in advance,
Chris.

Sorry but that is the default.
At least with the tools I use.

Are you making your XML manually?

Maybe the name of the navigation I like isnt the Quicktime one! Its the one where you hold the mouse button down and kind of drag?

Ive tried adding:

Source code

1
<control mousetype="drag2d" />

to the XML file but it seems to make no difference.

Do you maybe already have a control tag somewhere else in your XML?

What tool did you use to create your XML?

You are right! I did have two <control> tags by mistake, so I changed it to:

Source code

1
2
3
4
5
6

9
10
11
12
13

<krpano version="1.0.8"> <include url="skin/flatskin.xml" /> <view fovtype="HFOV" limitview="fullrange" hlookat="0" vlookat="0" maxpixelzoom="1.0" />
 <control mousetype="drag3d" zoomtocursor="true" zoomoutcursor="false" />
 <display flash10="on" movequality="LOW" stillquality="HIGHSHARP" movequality10="HIGH" stillquality10="HIGH" /> <preview url="a.tiles/preview.jpg" /> <image type="CYLINDER" hfov="1.00" multires="true" tilesize="512" progressive="true">
  <level tiledimagewidth="19417" tiledimageheight="4020" download="view">
   <cylinder url="a.tiles/l4/%0v_%0h.jpg" />
  </level>
  <level tiledimagewidth="9709" tiledimageheight="2010" download="view">
   <cylinder url="a.tiles/l3/%0v_%0h.jpg" />
  </level>
  <level tiledimagewidth="4855" tiledimageheight="1005" download="view">
   <cylinder url="a.tiles/l2/%0v_%0h.jpg" />
  </level>
  <level tiledimagewidth="2428" tiledimageheight="503" download="view">
   <cylinder url="a.tiles/l1/%0v_%0h.jpg" />
  </level>
 </image>
</krpano>

However there still appears to be no change to the mode in use when the panorama is viewed.
Thanks again for you help and advice.

Don't really know. But look in the skin/flatskin.xml to be sure there are no other control tags.

Thanks.
I think that found it!
I'm assuming that:

Source code

1
   set(control.mousetype, moveto);

is another way of doing the same thing?
