Hide Minimap During 360 Views + Bug Fixes

As some of MPEmbed’s users know, new features come when people ask questions — and bug fixes come when people email me reports of bugs.  Today, I had a particularly difficult space that I needed to apply color filters to and I ran into a few bugs along my own way — and a need for a new feature.

New Feature – &minimaphide360views=1 – I wanted the minimap to disappear while viewing 360 Views as I was working on an apartment community tour space and the minimap was not relevant to the 360 Views.  Useful!

Bug Fix – Premium – Individual Settings for 360 Views – Filters can now be applied to 360 Views.  Not being able to was an oversight and a bug stood in the way of allowing it.

Bug Fix – Premium – White Balance / Tint Slider – The white balance and tint sliders now show changes in real time.  This had stopped working on October 6 after the white balance / tint slider application had been completely recoded to allow smooth cross fading between complex filters.  I did not realize that it had broken the live preview.  In order to get a preview, one would need to quickly click/move inside of the space.  Rather irritating.  Interestingly enough, the live preview was not working due to a quirk in Google Chrome (it may have worked on other browsers), and I managed to fix it by toggling the width of the affected area between 100.01% and 100% whenever the sliders are changed.  I suppose the Chrome is not actively monitoring changes to a color matrix filter being updated in realtime with javascript … because no one has ever done it before, I think. 🙂

Tweak – Details Box – Removed the border under the ‘Details Panel Image’ … it was a bit obnoxious.  I also removed the gap that appears when there’s no description for the space… and fixed the model name misaligning when one added a custom logo …
