Does Captivate allow for setting the player's default field of View for 360 videos? I want to be be able to set the FOV as well as the default orientation of the 360 video.
I don't understand your question really. What do you mean by the 'default field? The view you'll see when starting is the one you set up on your stage.
field of view is how wide of an angle is seen. For instance in most 360 players (vimeo as an example) you can set the field of view to emulate a certain focal length. A wide field of view will show more of the scene requiring less panning around and a narrow field of view will show a small part of the scene and will require the viewer to really pan a lot ot view everything.
My goal is to custmize the viewing experience for the viewer as well as choosing the initial orientation of hte 360 view so that the viewer sees a specific part of the scene at the beggining of the 360 slide.
