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;
Auto Pano Giga
cubic converter - cube face extraction
photoshop - nadir image flattening and blank spot retouching
Cubic converter - EQ re-assembly and 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?http://ggnome.com/pano2vr
