Nadir image retouching and 360 VR workflow question

by CLCompton » Tue Jan 14, 2014 5:32 pm

Hey Folks,
Ive been doing 360s for quite a few years now, and I have developed a tidy little workflow that has done well for me. 8 image VR with a nikon 10.5
Basic starting images prep;
Photoshop
Stitching;
Auto Pano Giga
Nadir retouching;
cubic converter - cube face extraction
photoshop - nadir image flattening and blank spot retouching
Cubic converter - EQ re-assembly and output.
VR output;
Autopano Tour - Flash
Cubic Converter - quicktime

However with recent OS updates and upgrades it seems cubic converter is going away or at least hasnt been updated to allow for use on OSX 10.7+ .
Anyone out there have any good suggestions for the Nadir manipulations and final EQ assembly?? Is there an update to cubic converter Im not seeing? is there another EQ / cube face / EQ assembly software I dont know of? Thoughts suggestions?

Pano2VR's conversion options or their Patch tool?

ptp 2.0 can Export and Reimport cubes....
... but... during my test I created some bugsplashes using the Export Panorama option.... so it seems to be still Buggy in the ptp 2.0 RC1
