Disable annoying "smooth transitions" between images


#1

Hi, I’ve just started using Mapillary.
Is there a possibility to disable these “smooth transition effects” between the images of a sequence? I really would like to see only the images in the Mapillary player, without these fade effects.
Thank you very much!

Mapillary is a computer vision company, and they use images to create 3D reconstructions of places. Unfortunately, with that comes the fade effect between images.
Currently, the only way to avoid that is to click on each image individually. They have recently implemented a new design, as discussed in their latest blog post, that the fade effect will be becoming smoother.

They could make it possible to disable it. There is no technical reason that people should look at it. While it looks really cool the first times, I too think it becomes tedious over time.

One option is to implement a viewer ourselvs. They provide the API so it is plain Javascript. Personally I don’t have the time, but it should not be that hard.
