MPEmbed User Interface 2.0

I’m thrilled to launch the new MPEmbed User Interface.  On the surface, you might not notice any changes.  Under the hood, the possibilities are endless and I have been able to immediately address some issues that I’ve had since the beginning of the project.

Responsive UI 2.0 Launches

I'm thrilled to launch the new MPEmbed User Interface. On the surface, you might not notice any changes. Under the hood, the possibilities are endless and I have been able to immediately address some issues that I've had since the beginning of the project.The length of the about panel tabs now adjusts when the highlight reel is open.All UI elements fade and return at the same time. You can even completely turn off the fading interface if you'd like.All UI elements disappear during guided tour mode. This is GREAT for recording a screen capture!The flip button, compass button and user copyright are all now fully integrated into the footer dock. They move, scale and resize with the user interface.Scale UI now features all buttons including the floor selection and social sharing.The Social Share links now share the actual page that the tour was embedded on. If it's a direct mpembed.com link – it'll share the MPEmbed space!–And if you saw the sneak peek from the other day … yes! We're even closer to being able to roll out the ability to add custom content to the highlight reel!

  • Responsive About Panel and Highlight Reel – The height of the about panel automatically changes to allow the highlight reel to be open and extends when it is closed. 
  • Custom Tint – Now applies to Floorplan Selection and Social Media Selection
  • Fading UI – All elements now fade in and out together perfectly in sync. **
  • No Fading UI Mode – All elements now stay visible – nothing will fade if selected! **
  • Distraction Free Highlight Reel Playback – Everything disappears while playing the guided tour. **
  • Sharing Buttons Share Your URL – Now the sharing buttons in the UI will share the actual URL that your tour is on — not the bare my.matterport.com url.  This means that sharing buttons now share MPEmbed links — or if you are embedding this tour on a WP3D Models page or your own website, it will share that website.  Be advised, if you are sharing a link to your own website, the image and text that appears will be sourced from your website.
  • Responsive Compass (Premium) – The compass now moves up when the highlight reel is opened.
  • Full UI in Scale UI (Premium) – All controls are now available in scaled UI mode including larger controls!
  • Aligned Flip Button (Premium) – The horizontal flip button is now aligned next to the floorplan button on the bottom left at all times.
  • Full UI in Flip Mode (Premium) – All controls in flip mode.  When using ‘horizontal flip’ mode, you will still have the highlight reel (all images flipped!), floor selection and share buttons.
  • New Mattertag Icons – Replaced YouTube icon with video icon.  Replaced ‘play’ icon with ‘pictures’ icon.

** Requires use of MPEmbed’s About Panel.  If no about panel options are enabled, the default Showcase About Panel will display and behave normally.
