Flash VR panoramas are normally used to show a virtual environment in 360 degree field of view, with the viewer feeling like standing inside the virtual place and looking out from the center of the location. To create Flash VR panoramas, you need to shoot panoramas first, and export the panorama to Flash VR which is based on the cross platform Adobe Flash Player to play 360 degree panoramic photos.
What is Flash and why do we use Flash player?
Adobe Flash (previously called Macromedia Flash) is a multimedia platform created by Macromedia and currently developed and distributed by Adobe Systems. Since its introduction in 1996, Flash has become a popular method for adding animation and interactivity to web pages; Flash is commonly used to create animation, advertisements, and various web page components, to integrate video into web pages, and more recently, to develop rich Internet applications.
Java or Quicktime player all has its own advantages, but as we all know, Java or Quicktime player is hard to use on the web. On the contrary, Flash player is enough popular to be the panorama online player. Almost every computer has the Flash player, and we need not have to worry about the surfers can not see the panorama.
