destination Scene displayed is wrapped/joined end to end when try to
add a Scene Hotspot. Why is that so?
It seems that the Scene that you have selected is a partial one but
you have loaded it as a 360° Scene instead. You will need to change
the Scene type to ´Partial´ by accessing the properties of the Scene.
(Right-click on the Scene to access the Scene properties.)
- When I try to add a Scene Hotspot that is an
Object View Scene, the display looks warped like a kaleidoscope. How
do I correct it?
It seems that the number of frames for the Object View Scene is not
specified correctly. You will need to enter the correct number of
frames by accessing the properties of the Scene. (Right-click on the
Scene to access the Scene properties.)
- How do I create a transition effect like zooming
when I create a Scene Hotspot?
At the ´Add Scene Hotspot´ Window, click on the Source Scene and pan

click on the Hotspot, it will pan to the view specified and then zoom
in before loading the destination Scene.

a single Scene. However, we would suggest a maximum of 8 Hotspots per
- When I click on an Audio Hotspot, it plays via the
Windows Media Player. Is it possible to playback the audio
automatically without using the player?
Yes, it is possible by using the 3D Audio Embed Hotspot. This Hotspot
allows you to embed a wave file within the Scene that will playback
automatically depending on settings.
- What is the size of the Hotspot icon? Can I
The Hotspot icon is set at 24 x 24 pixels. You can customize it using
the customization settings. Refer to the user guide or online help for
more information on create your desired Hotspot icon.
- How is the 3D Audio Embed Hotspot different from
the Audio link Hotspot?
The Audio link Hotspot playbacks the linked audio file using your
default media player. As for the 3D Audio Embed Hotspot, the linked
file is played without using any media player. For the 3D Audio Embed
Hotspot, you can also specify environmental effects for the sound.
- How many environmental effects can I specify?
You can only specify one environment effect per Scene. The
environmental effect is based on Creative´s EAX 1.0 technology. For
example, creating a virtual of a house allows you to specify different
environmental effects for the living room, kitchen, bedrooms and etc.
- How many 3D Audio Embed Hotspots can I create
within a Scene?
You can create as many 3D Audio Embed Hotspots as you like within a
single Scene. We would suggest a maximum of 8 Hotspots, as too many
Hotspots may be too confusing for users viewing it.
- Can I create Hotspots in my Flat Scenes and 360°
Yes, with PixMaker Pro, you can create Hotspots in both Flat and
Object View Scenes.
