Thanks for your reply Andrew.
Unfortunately, obsolete or not, I have a site that I need to upload a virtual tour to - the site only accepts certain formats - those that I've listed. I will check out Pano2VR though, but if anyone else knows of a way to export from AutopanoTour to one of these other formats, I'd really like to find out.
You can use the "CubicConverter" - if you use a Mac (you didnÂ´t mention the platform youÂ´re on). ItÂ´s cheap, very simple to use and very effective: you import an equirectangular image (thatÂ´s what APP/APG renders) into the CC and convert it to equirectangular, cube faces, cylinder, mirrorball or QTVR-movie. Kind of a multotool.
Takes a lot of different image-types and image-sizes.
A word on APP/APG`s output: applications like APT usually take equirectangular images or cubefaces to display as spherical panos.
Cubefaces usually are made from equis. So APP/APGÂ´s output-format is universal.
QTVR is s format which isnÂ´t supported any more. In other words: avoid to use it - hard for me to say so as a long-time Mac-user and user of QTVR for years.
But - as Andrew said
- in the 21 century things are actually based on Flash or on HTML5 in the future.
Makes definitely no sense to use QTVR: clients need to extra install a Quicktime-VR viewer . . . which they widely dislike to do. Flash/Java is installed on more than 95% of all computers as is reported.
