I see your going to add fisheye support this is a good thing. One thing that I feel no other pano app has is a good auto match color correction to fix the shodow dropoffs of the 2 halfs due to uneven room lighting. With out this most users are no longer looking at a fisheye solution.
Panoweaver 4 doesn't have it, stitcher 3 nope, Ipix nope.. so if you had it and it worked you might see a lot of users come back to the quick and easy fisheye solution..for virtual indoor home tours. But with out it most are going to the 12 plus shot solution for home / realestate indoor tour shots...
Another thing I think is a must is to allow fisheye reguardless of the number of shots.. currently I do 12 shots per home tour per room but wide angle only captures so much. If the fisheye was usable in all 12 shots it would give much more coverage above the normal wide angle len solutions.. even 4 fisheyes shots stitched give better results than just 2 or 3 due to the fact it helps with evening the lighting and showdowing fall offs that ocurr in normal 2 or 3 fisheye shots.
you can see some of my work at http://desoto360tours.com all the panos there are 12 shots per room, but I'd really like to find a way to reduce the total number of shots and at the same time keeping the quaity of my current work....
Thanks and good luck, bring this app to market. I look forward to a ture total solution . "which no other current VR software compnay has at this point... .

Thanks for this post. Could you upload us an example of "shadows dropoffs of the 2 halfs". I'm a bit lost by this term. You can use ftp://ftp.autopano.net/incoming/panoramas-tests/ to upload files. --- About coverage : we have no limit. The more we have the more we can get from.
I have uploaded the un stitched and stitched examples note in the stitched versions how the color blends are very bad. This is due to uneven lighting in the rooms all rooms have this problem when doing fisheye stitches...
