regarding its own objects model (like some adobe apps do). nice for
forms and their evaluation (for what this is made for).
what you obviuosly need is a html embedding which then embeds a swf
which needs an online access from a local file to grab the panorama and
everthing else. alone the latter is a no-go for security reasons.
for the same reason a standalone local swf with remote pano images is
limited by this security restriction. before showing something you need
to approve your local file location as trustet. not that elegant for
presentation purposes ;-)
with adobe air you can go one step further in your desired direction: as
these are real apps you've local file access and can embed a broswer
window with online access. air apps can be based on flash and/or
html/js/css. but you need to build your own app. besides it's only
usefull on your own machine, as others need to install this app which
needs the air runtime installed before.
i thing the most reasonable way is to embed a web link into the pdf to
fire up the browser pointing to your remote showcase site. not that
elegant, but working reliable.
