Add 360° views or other types of Image Sequences.
1. How to create an Image Sequence?
The Image Sequence option lets a user walk you through a series of images while swiping. The most frequent application for this is to give a 360° view of an object.
- You can use a series of images (either JPG or PNG) that have the same root name with a numbered suffix, e.g. bicycle_001.jpg, bicycle_002.jpg, etc.
- In order to get the best performance when rotating, you should use a series of at least 30 images. Do keep in mind, however, that using too many images may have an impact on performance.
- Use PNG files only if you are using transparency in your images
- Make sure your images have the exact size as they will be displayed on the iPad
- In order to add optimized images for the retina iPad, make sure you folder contains both versions for the standard resolution, e.g. bicycle_001.jpg… as well the one for the retina iPad that has the "@2x" suffix (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
To create an image sequence object, create a rectangle the size of your images, then select the Image Sequence palette.
In the palette, select the folder that contains the images of your sequence.
- Play In Reverse: This will change the rotation direction.
- Allow Swiping to Change Images: Controls whether the reader can change the state of the Image Sequence by Swiping.
- Auto Play: Will start the Image Sequence automatically after the reader navigates to this page. You can determine the Speed (in frames per second) and the Delay (in seconds).
- Tap to play/pause: Allows a user to start/stop automatic playback of an Image Sequence.
- Allow Looping: This will play the series of images in a continuous loop.
