    Will support for google maps be added back in (v3 of the API does not need a key) ? Also are maps supported in HTML5 exports?

    Panotour Pro is a virtual tour software. The images must have been stitched and processed in terms of colors before using them in Panotour Pro.
    You can use Autopano Giga to stitch multi-bracket HDR photos, then use the final rendering in Panotour Pro.
    Best regards,

    I’m considering purchasing Panotour Pro 1.8 and I am wondering what HDR programs are compatible or best with this program. Is there any way to incorporate and HDR program with Panotour Pro or is the HDR work to be done seperatly (before or after). If there is any way to incorporate the HDR processing into the workflow with Panotour Pro 1.8, is it necessary to use Photomatix or can Nik HDR Efex Pro be used?
