  1. When I publish to Scene, will I be able to select the image format?
    Yes, you will be able to select the image format desired.

     
  2. I would like to specify the image size and quality when I publish my stitched image as a Scene. Is that possible?
    Yes, you can specify the image size when you publish the stitched image as a Scene. However, the quality can only be specified for both the JPEG and PIJ format only.

     
  3. What is the audio compression setting under the Postcard "Preview" used for?
    The audio compression setting is an option for 3D Audio Embed Hotspot(s). When checked, the audio file(s) selected for the 3D Audio will be compressed using the GSM audio codec which will help in reducing the file size of the Postcard, especially if large audio files are used.

     
  4. I noticed that when I view the postcard, the Scene is panning too fast. Can I slow down the panning?
    Yes, you can adjust the panning speed from the menu. Go to the menu under "View" and select the desired panning speed.

     
  5. For the ActiveX option, I noticed that there is a packed option. What is it used for?
    Certain resource files that are distributed with PixMaker Pro is required to view the PowerPoint presentation containing PixMaker Scenes. This option will pack the resource file together with the presentation in a self-executable file, which can be distributed easily allowing users to view the presentation on systems without PixMaker Pro.

     
  6. What are the recommended dimensions for my PixMaker Scene?
    For compatibility across browsers, at least match the height of the PixMaker Scene (image) with that of the Java applet. The ideal image height, however, is 1.2 times that of the applet height. For example, if your image height is 180 pixels, set your applet height at 150 pixels.

     
  7. What is the size of the Java applet when published to HTML?
    The size for each of the 3 types of Java applets is:
    PixScreen -45KB
    ObjPixScreen - 18KB
    uPixScreen - 20KB

     
  8. What is the size of the published PixMaker image?
    The size of the published PixMaker image ranges from 60KB to 800KB, depending on the resolution of the individual images used.

     
  9. I'm not able to find the PixMaker Scene on my Palm IIIc which I publishing from PixMaker although I have HotSync my Palm IIIc. What did I miss out?
    In order to view PixMaker Scenes on your Palm IIIc, you will have to install PixScreen for PalmOS® on your device before publishing from PixMaker Pro.

     
  10. When I try to publish to PDA, PixMaker prompts that the device cannot be found. What do I need?
    PixMaker Pro is not able to detect a compatible PDA on your system. In order to publish to PDA, you will need to have either a PalmOS® device or Windows® CE based device installed on your system. The appropriate PixScreen viewer must also be installed on the device first.

     
  11. When I publish to web page, there is a list of web templates that I can choose from. Can I add my own templates?
    It will not be possible to add your own templates at this point in time. However, we looking into providing additional web templates for download in the future. Do keep a lookout on our web site for updates.

     
  12. What is a Java Archive file (.jar)?
    A JAR file is a type of archive file meant for Java applets. The files contained within the archive are required for viewing PixMaker Scenes on web pages. Different JAR files perform different functions. For example, ObjPixScreen.jar, contain files required for the display of Object View Scenes.
