Default How to create cube faces

Hi!

I am new to panorama creation and would like to have some hints on programs that are easy to use, cheap and can make cube faces that can be used with Flash Panoramas.

Best regards,

Niklas

Hey Niklas:

Here are two great resources, with tons of info on different softwares for stitching and output:

IVRPA:
http://ivrpa.org/vr/links

PanoTools Wiki:
http://wiki.panotools.org/Software

--
I use PTGui, which is relatively inexpensive and very good. Many people use it, but many people use many other stitchers too.

Hi Niklas,
If you you want an easy method I recommend Panotools, you can download a setup from here http://photocreations.ca/panotools/

Once you have installed Panotools you should download the DOSUP utilities from here: http://www.pinlady.net/vr/

If you follow the instructions in the above website you will be able to convert to faces just by clicking on the panorama file a 'Send To' to the converter.

Regards

Hugin is free. and when you get the hang of it not so difficult.
it makes equirectangular pictures but are very easy made into seperate cube faces with A program made by Roberto G?mez Torres.

http://www.tiempo-digital.com/en/sof...be/tocube.html

Right now he is working on a new version including batch proccesing!
It works like a charm and pretty fast! 0.8 is usable for vista.

It was a free program but If I understand he will ask a little money $25.- or so for the program.
Try the free demo. it works but only converts into grey.

For stitching I hope (for your sake) that you use PTgui (www.ptgui.com). If you do, you can convert the equi's to cubefaces by going to "Tools>Convert to QTVR / Cubic..."

That is the best.
