Mattertag Directory Transitions Changed!

Mattertag Directory Transitions Changed!

When a user clicks on a Mattertag in the Mattertag Directory, MPEmbed uses the SDK’s ‘navigateToTag’ feature to ‘fly’ to the Mattertag.  Unfortunately, if a clear line of sight cannot be established, this fails.

MPEmbed has been mitigating this problem for a while by zooming to dollhouse mode (or floorplan mode if dollhouse mode is unavailable) and then reattempting to ‘navigateToTag’.  Generally this works.  It works for me every time, but others have reported that it does not work for them every time.

A while back, I added in an experimental ‘alternate’ 3D Transition for the Mattertag directory.  To be honest, I completely forgot about it.  This transition uses some mode swapping quirks in order to more reliably navigate to the tag without the dollhouse / floorplan mode change.

Based on feedback, I have replaced the old method with this new experimental method.  It has, I suppose, graduated!
