I've never really done walk-throughs before, haven't felt the need. But after seeing how much my clients love the new panoramas, I decided to look at walk-throughs again for a project that isn't really suitable for a panorama, especially since I haven't checked them out in several versions. I'm now using X9. I watched a couple Chief tutorials, downloaded the XVID 1.3.4 codec, set that in preferences, and set up some walk-throughs and then tried to record various options as I learn how this works. I am using Windows Media Player for viewing after finding out that "Movies & TV" gives a "Can't play" error message for all the resulting walk-through files. (Interestingly, when I had the XVID 1.3.2 codec installed, there were a couple avi files I could watch with the Movies & TV app.)
In a brand new test plan, (all preferences as default except for changing to the 1.3.4 XVID codec), I set up a short 3 camera walk through of a one room space and I found I could not make a viewable .avi file from the following options: Standard, Painting, or Duotone. However I was able to successfully record and view .avi files for Vector, Glass House, Technical Illustration, Watercolor and Line Drawing options. I would like to be able to record and view in the Standard format. Any suggestions? Thanks...
I like to add music to my walk-throughs. CA support says, "we don't have this functionality"
Well, I kind of knew that, but that was all the answer I got.
Does anybody know how to do this as a "peripheral" to Chief?
