Default Offline tool to convert from spherical to cube

I have my panos as 2:1 equilinear spheres. I need to convert them to cube strips or faces, with a command line tool, on Linux.
Would anyone know a tool that could do the job?

Hi,

Try Pano2QTVR: www.pano2qtvr.com. The free version will create your cube faces for you...

Thanks for that Gary.

Actually, the free version of pano2qtvr does a fine job of extracting cube faces in jpeg format. Refer to the readme in the pano2vtr root folder when you install it... it provides instructions for using the command line interface. This makes it very easy to batch multiple images.

The following command line will extract cube faces from a spherical jpeg, vt1.jpg, in a folder called source and create 6 cube faces 1_0.jpg, 1_1.jpg ... 1_5.jpg in a folder called dest:

c:\programfiles\pano2QTVR\Pano2QTVR.exe" -e "c:\source\vt1.jpg" -f "d:\dest\1"

I assemble these into a strip using a photoshop script that I've created.

That's how I do it...

Gary
Many thanks again for this. The command line ability absolutely rocks and speeds up my flow a lot of windows.
Now only if there was a Linux version!

cheers
Bruce
