One of the great things about Arqspin interactive 360 photography software is that it makes embedding spins into a variety of platforms extremely simple. Depending on your product and which platform you are using, you may have different ways you want your users to interact with your spin. Thankfully, Arqspin software gives you several options for how your embedded spin will behave. We talked about the basics of embedding spins here, but if you’re still unsure about what all the embedding options do, this guide should help.
When you click “embed a spin” you are prompted to select spin dimensions, choose between HTML5 and and flash viewers, and choose a combination of three interaction options: auto-rotate, auto-stop, and auto-load (auto-load is only available for HTML5 viewers).
Selecting auto-rotate tells the spin to continue to rotate until the user stops the spin by clicking on it. The user will need to click the play button before they can interact with the spin.
Auto-stop applies gravity to the spin. When a user stops interacting with the spin it will stop rotating. This allows users to focus on a specific view of your product. Again, the user will have to click the play button before they can interact with the spin.
Selecting auto-load allows the user to begin interacting without having to click a play button. This option is only available if you are embedding using HTML5; Flash users must always click the play button before being able to interact with the spin.
These rotation styles can also be combined in various ways to achieve your desired interaction effect.
No options selected:
Users must click play and the object continues to rotate after interaction.
Auto-rotate and auto-stop:
Users must click play and the object stays in the position the user rotates it to.
Auto-rotate and auto-load:
Users do not need to click play and the object continues to rotate after interaction.
Auto-stop and auto load:
Users do not need to click play and the object stays in the position that the user rotates it to.
