Default Using old donut images

Hi all.
I've unearthed several very old panoramic images that were taken with a Remote Reality One-Shot system. Essentially, I have a donut image which I can unwrap into a circular cylindrical image.

I'm now trying to create a FPP version of these and thought the best thing to do would be to create a 2000 x 1000 equirectangular canvas and then place my circular image onto this. By placing the circular image at various y-levels, I could eventually export as cubes into FPP and create a working 360 degree image. Granted, I would have to restrict the ability to tilt up and down.

My problem is that regardless of where I place the circular onto the equirectangular, the exported cubes give a wierd perspective with abnormally curved walls etc.

Anyone have any suggestions?

If you can provide one of those images for people to test, I am sure people would be glad to help.

I think I'm going after the same thing, here's a link to the picture:

So what I would like to do is this: Normal 360pano with restricted viewing angles so that the user couldn't see the missing top and bottom cube faces.

Any ideas?

If you have the PTGui program, you can convert your image to six cubic face images under Tools -> Convert to QTVR/Cubic on the menu.

Choose Projection: equirectangular and Output: Cube faces.

Then you can limit your pano tilting with the limits.swf plugin.
