Virtual Tour Callouts Volume 1.11
Add callouts like these to your virtual tour!
PLEASE NOTE: These templates are built with a free version of DaVinci Resolve. You will need to install DaVinci Resolve on your computer and familiarize yourself with it. You will also need to install a free version of APNG animation software, and familarize yourself with that, too. Links to both are below. You should be comfortable following the instructions in our YouTube videos and be an intermediate to advanced computer software user. These products are not intended for novice computer users. We cannot teach you how to use DaVinci Resolve or APNG software, but you should be able to follow along with our YouTube videos and have a successful experience.
These callout templates can be used to create beautiful, customized animated callouts for your virtual tour and are designed to be used with virtual tour software that supports APNG animation files, such as 3D Vista Virtual Tour Pro (among others). Change colors, fonts, type and more using an easy-to-use interface, to make each callout your own.
You'll get 8 unique designs with multiple variations of each, for a total of 26 callouts!
These templates work with and require the free or paid version of DaVinci Resolve v16.2+ software from Blackmagic Design. Our templates make extensive use of Macros to mask the complexity of DaVinci Resolve and specifically the complexity of the Fusion tab within DaVinci Resolve, which is where all of the magic happens. You will use these templates and DaVinci Resolve to output a sequence of PNG files that comprise the rendered animation. With that sequence, you can create an APNG file using another free software product called APNGb (Mac) or APNG Assembler (Windows). The end result is an APNG file that you can import into your virtual tour software. This may sound complicated, but it’s not. Other templates that we will be offering output MP4 files, which can also be imported into supporting virtual tour software.
Our YouTube channel includes easy-to-follow tutorial videos for these and other template products under development. Please subscribe to our channel to be kept up to date on updates and new releases, and to request support.
Installation and Guide
Please note this addendum to the guide that is linked to below:
August 10, 2020: The latest free version of Davinci Resolve adds 4K (UHD) resolution editing, which is great news; prior to this update it had a maximum resolution of HD. Depending on what version you have, this could cause layout problems for these templates. The fix is simple: Go into Resolve's File/Project Settings, and in the first preference, switch Timeline resolution from 3840x2160 to 1920x1080HD. That should fix any layout issues you may be seeing.
