I don't think chromanator could handle QTVRs, but if you take multiple screenshots and put them together Chromanator could move it around.

Eg, you take a screenshot then paste that into paint. Save that, and then return to the QTVR and move it along. Take your next screenshot, paste and save. Open the first one, go to "Image" > "Attributes" and double the width. Paste in the second screenshot at the right and then load that into Chromanator. Then just keyframe the quad.

Or you can use a screen capture program that captures avi footage from the screen and only select the quicktime vr. Then pan it to your needs and import that file into Chromy. I found a free one that someone metnioned somewhere on this site.

Take screenshots. If you're using Windows hold "Shift" and hit "Prt Sc|SysRq" and go into Paint or Photoshop ect. and hold "Ctrl" and hit "V".... Hope that makes sense..! If you're using Mac - then I'm afraid I'm not gonna be of any help! wink

Yes, printing screen would be the way I would go about this as well. I just thought I would mention that holding shift when taking a screen caption is not necessary, however, if you were to hold "Alt" when taking a screen capture, you would capture the window you are selected on only, and not your task bar along with it.

Although I have never used a Macintosh, I believe Shift+Command-3 will take a screen caption and automatically create a file on your desktop for you. Shift+Command-4, on the other hand, will supply you with a cross hair cursor which will allow you to select what area of the screen you capture.

Alternately, if you want to take a screen capture on a Mac, but do not wish to have a file made on your desktop, you have the option of using Shift+Control+Command-3 (or 4), which will copy the image onto your clip board so you can paste it where you prefer (paint, for instance).

Incase you were curious.

I guess you could "Right Click and Save As" the files from the site in the first post

EDIT: 250 posts but keep it quiet razz
