Do you have examples of EyeSpy360 Tours I can use to Develop Business? fotoguy 5 30 dayssimbany1 (102): Thanks Dan. It's interesting. I know about the toggle for the 3d floorplan. I toggle the Eyespyplan Autostart 'On' so that when the tour starts, the 3d model is the first scene. Gives a sense of "coolness" when the tour starts. When you do that and go back to the 360 tour, the 3d floor plan doesn't show up in the bottom left...

Do you see any conspiracy against virtual tours in the following situation Wingman 7 2 monthscarloscardo (7): Wingman, Here's a point to add, FLOOR PLANS ARE IMPORTANT: I did a virtual tour and realized through the tour a dead spot in the master bathroom. IN one home they installed a smaller shower base and decided to frame in the shower wall around that, so there was an additional almost two feet of dead space inside a wall cavity that was easily knocked out to make the shower that much wider! Point is (not trying to preach to the choir) that the...

Once you let them interact with a tour on an iPad (preferably)...
