Has anyone figured out a way to modify the iframe embed code (either from WP3D or Matterport) to display something else (an image, a video) before loading the Matterport Space?

It seems like an obvious way to put some branding on our tours, so I imagine it's not as straightforward as it sounds like it could be.

Hi @craigsauer -

I'd like to think this is one of the great built-in features of WP3D Models with the "Primary Image Override" feature. Have you been using this? On embeds that you share with your clients, you just need to be sure you have an "Intro" option enabled.

Note that it isn't ideal for additional branding into the image itself because that content is auto-overlayed with the "play" button, title, etc. That's where the "Large Logo" is displayed for your own (or your client's) branding.

On the WP3D "Skinned" view, you can also use a YouTube video to auto-play video that displays initially and then fades away when you click (the "play" button) to load the Matterport space.

Are these features that maybe you were unaware of?

@rpetersn Tour play button set to play 5 second promo vid as overlay? The tour is ready to go when the vid finishes and fades. Could also be handy for properties with multiple tours. I don't know of anybody who enjoys watching the tour load. Or anybody who enjoys watching promo vids though to be fair.

@rpetersn Am I right that the video and still image backgrounds only work on the skinned versions of the models, not full screens or embeds or standards?

It looks like the only customization I can get on embeds is the logos and some custom text overlays. Right?

That's still pretty awesome, but a video lead in an embed would be even better.

Hi @craigsauer -

The auto-playing video background ( meant to be used largely as motion "texture" ) is only available on the WP3D "SKINNED" view .

Here's an example:
http://demo.wp3dmodels.com/3d-model/beach-listing-example/skinned/

However, the still image background option works everywhere, you just have to enable a WP3D "Space/Showcase Branded Intro" found as the first option under your BRANDING tab, when editing a Model.

And yes, you can add your own logo to the embed, as well as customize the text overlay that appears.
