Technical Details

My 360VR panoramas are assembled with PTMac and PTGUI. These are GUI programs based on Helmut Dersch's Panorama Tools. My favorite re- projection from the 360x180 degree equirectangular format is Hyperbolic and I use a Photoshop plugin from Flaming Pear called Fexify for this task. If it wasn't for Quicktime VR and Panorama Tools, my career as a photographer would end up as a boring one.
