No, it's into our list from many time it's true, but this feature apply many changes and validations to do. It's not a trivial change.
Benji - it´s ONE word and ONE number when i add it in the xml of PTP1.8 manually:
hlookat="0" vlookat="0" maxpixelzoom="1.0" fov="60" fovmax="70" limitview="auto" />
Are you really telling: ". . . . this feature apply many changes and validations to do. It's not a trivial change."???
Please do not forget that after all there still are some few professionals among your clients who might desperately need THIS kind of features more than 75% of the rather gimmicking rest of the features . .

That´s it. All other things either can be done also in 1.8 or are of lesser importance for people like me.
For me - as well as for many other pros i´m in permenent contact with - It´s unacceptable to expect from a client first to set manually the projection for viewing a pano/tour the best way which suits him. That´s amateurish - definitely a no go.
Architects, artists and others, who hate extreme vertical distortions because it´s badly influences their works on the screen - are not used in these things like users for whom it´s ok to configure their viewer first.
The work i do and many other professionals also do usually is "tailored" to the need of very critical and demanding clients.
The fact is: it´s almost imposssible to convince for example famous architects, artists and other creators of objects as well as high-class real estate agents that interactive panorama-photography can be fine for them. I encounter that fact each time i´m in meetings with this kind of potential clients.
They prefer classical architectural photography resp. classic photography generally. Straight, minimal distorted, clean.
They say that panorama-photography in their eyes is "hobby stuff" and terrible looking - because their products/projects are presented in an extremely distorted way.
And they´re right!
One of the ways to convince these peopile is to minimize inavoidable distortions. And here the architectural view is of VERY important help!
I wrote about that all many times here. But it seems that people like me have kind of fallen out of Kolor´s focus meanwhile.
