Showcase v3.0 has a Low Resolution Bug!

Some users may have noticed that Matterport Spaces that use MPEmbed do not look as crisp as tours that do not.  Some of those users may have also noticed that when you resize your browser window, that suddenly your tour will get sharper.

This is due to a bug in Showcase v3.0 that happens whenever a space is embedded in an iframe.  It loads 512k tiles and only 512k tiles.  By resizing the iframe, it will force Showcase to check what the best tile size is to serve.  I’ve added in code that automatically trips the ‘onresize’ function by ‘wiggling’ the iframe a little bit when each space loads.  You can’t tell that it’s doing this — all you’ll notice is that your tour is looking a lot better 🙂
