    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. bicycle_001@2x.jpg)

    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.

    4. Tap to play/pause: Allows a user to start/stop automatic playback of an Image Sequence.
    5. Allow Looping: This will play the series of images in a continuous loop.
