1-d navigation

This page contains a complete working VR model. You can use the View Source function of your browser to see exactly how Freedom VR is embedded in this page, and you can view the index of this directory to see how the files are set up. This panorama was shot in Vondelpark in Amsterdam, the Netherlands by Daniël Kropveld.
This page contains a java applet that displays a VR model. Java makes it possible to see multimedia content on many platforms without downloading plug-ins or installing software: Netscape Communicator supports Java on many platforms.

We'll use this model to illustrate the steps to put this model in your page; you can download the images for it in a zip file from the Download page.
  1. Install Freedom VR. This step is covered on the installation page.
  2. Install the images. Your images must be in .gif or .jpg format and numbered sequentially; it's best to store the images in a subdirectory underneath the directory that your page is in, but for this example I'm storing everything in the same directory since some people can't make subdirectories on their web servers. You can look at this directory to see how the images are stored.
  3. Write the applet tag: The APPLET tag for this example is
    <DIV align=center>
     <APPLET CODE="fvr2.class" ARCHIVE="fvr2Archive.jar" WIDTH=320 HEIGHT=240>
      <PARAM NAME="nFrames" VALUE="17">
      <PARAM NAME="modelBase" VALUE="">
      <PARAM NAME="progY" VALUE="200">
      <PARAM NAME="ccw" VALUE="true">
      <B>This page contains a java applet that displays a VR model.
      Java makes it possible to see multimedia content on many platforms without
      downloading plug-ins or installing software: 
      <A HREF="http://www.netscape.com/">Netscape Communicator</A> supports
      Java on many platforms.</B>
     </APPLET>
    </DIV>
    
    
    Lets go through this step by step.

Freedom VR has a few more options which are listed on the reference page. You can also read about how to create 2-d navigable models or how to add hotspots to a model.
