This post aims to compile and organize all the available options for viewing your 3DVista tours without the need for an internet connection. Depending on your devices and needs, you can select the most suitable method for you. With this small guide, you can easily find the solution you need and connect with the instructions for each method in a clear and simple way.

For Windows or Mac devices:

Standalone Player Method

This involves publishing the tour by selecting this mode in the publication options of VTPro. This will generate a single file (.EXE for PC and .Dmg for Mac) that you only need to execute to play it offline. On Windows, for files larger than 4GB additional files (7zip) will be created. You can also share this file(s) via email, wetransfer, dropbox, etc.

Method of downloading the tour from the browser itself

This involves accessing the published tour online and downloading it to your computer. To do this, you need to publish the tour and upload it online (on 3DVista's hosting or any other) by selecting the option "Display download Message for Offline Playing". Then access the tour online from the browser (Chrome or Edge) and download it from the top message that will appear on the tour. This will create an icon on your desktop and when you execute it, it will display your tour in full screen as if it were an app.

More details on this method here.

For Mobile or Tablet devices:

Using the 3DVista app (available on Google Play and App Store)

This involves downloading and using the 3DVista app to view your tours. If you have them hosted on 3DVista's hosting, they will all appear in the Online tab, and from there you can select and download them so that they appear in the Offline tab. If you don't use 3DVista's hosting, you can publish the tours for "web/mobile" and copy the files to your phone/tablet in the 3DVista app folder. This way, when you open the app, it will recognize those tours and they will appear in the Offline tab for viewing.
