The splitscreen version of the SPi-V engine will let you look at two panoramas at the same time. Instead of blending from one of the 'states' to another, like you can do with the standard engine, the display is split through the middle, showing one half of the view in one state, and the other half in the other state. While you look around, the division moves with you, allowing you to interactively compare the two panoramas.
How to use
Embedding the splitscreen viewer in HTML is similar to the normal viewer, see the included HTML file in the download.
The splitscreen viewer requires a scene with two panoelements, eg:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<panoelement id="pano1" zorder="1">
<image id="pano1(image)"><layer class="base" type="bitmap" src="pano1.jpg" /></image>
<panoelement id="pano2" zorder="2">
<image id="pano2(image)"><layer class="base" type="bitmap" src="pano2.jpg"/></image>
If the splitscreen viewer encounters a scene with a single panoelement, it will show the scene like the standard viewer does.
The splitscreen viewer disables any ramps and timers in the loaded xml file. This way, you can easily load an adr or before-and-after scene and inspect the two exposures side by side.
Hotspots may or may not work.
