5. Presentations

The advanced “Presenter” feature on the cybaLOUNGE platform is able to combine various formats (PDFs, Slides, Videos, Websites, etc.) from web sources as one presentation.

In general the new presenter is a container for a set URLs, meaning everything that can and will be displayed is identified by a unique web address. This allows to use (almost) any web page or to store images and other content on a file share like DropBox or OneDrive for example.

The administrative tools of the new presenter allow to add and manage the URLs “pointing” to the presenter’s content.

There is a tutorial on HOW TO: Use the presenter available.

5.1. Add the Presenter

Add the “Presenter” to your location by opnening up the the “Location Editor” or “Builders Menu” and choose in the “Location Editor”-menu “Primitives” → “Special” → “Adv Presenter”. The “Presenter” oblect will appear in front of your avatar.

5.2. Placement of the Presenter

The next step is the placement of the “Presenter”, according to your needs. The placement of the “Presenter” is performed in three steps: rotation, position, scale. This process is passed through using trail-and-error. Numbers can also be entered as negative numbers, just add a - (= minus) in front of the number.

1) Rotation In the “Location Editor”-menu choose “Attributes” → “Rotation” → “Rotate Y” for an horizontal rotation. Use degrees to rotate the object.

2) Position In the “Location Editor”-menu choose “Attributes” → “Position” → “PosX/Y/Z” for the coordinates.

3) Scale In the “Location Editor”-menu choose “Attributes” → “Scale” → “ScaleX/Y/Z” for scaling the object.

Close the “Location Editor” in the bottom tool bar by clicking on the symbol to finalize your the placement of the “Presenter”.

5.3. Add Content to the Presenter

After the sucessful placement click once on the “Presenter” object in the cybaLOUNGE environment. The “Presenter HUD” menu will pop up on the upper left side of the interface and you can start to add your content.
