Beautyful stuff. the Autostitcher is free on that page, download it, people, before it becomes comercial ,-)

Anyone know a free and simple software to generate applets and viewer to integrate these 360 views into a simple html page? just like the one in the link above.

Are you sure?

Do you mean save the website? and altar the Java to suit your own?
I can't see anyhing to Download...

There is a Demo Version of AutoStitch available, but it's limited.
(written in C++) No commercial licence yet though...

But i could not find any free version.

Umm, not really..... There's a bunch of limitations in the Demo...
In fact it's been quite crippled, and the Demo times out as well..


Q: Why doesn't Autostitch recognise multiple panoramas?
A:This feature is disabled in the demo version

Q: What projection method does Autostitch use? Does it support full view panoramas?
A:The demo version of Autostitch uses sperical projection and is capable of stitching full view 360 x 180 degree panoramas (everything visible from a point). Cylindrical and planar projections are not supported in the demo version

Q: Does Autostitch support fisheye images?
A:The demo version of Autostitch does not explicitly support fisheye images (it assumes that straight lines are preserverd). Having said that, the results will probably be OK if there is plenty of overlap and not too much distortion.

Q: Why won't Autostitch read TIFF images?
A:Whilst it would be easy to add TIFF suppport, we have left this out of the demo version.

Q: Why doesn't Autostitch recognise multiple panoramas?
A:This feature is disabled in the demo version

Q: My Autostitch demo expired. What do I do?
A:We are periodically updating the demo version of Autostitch. Please download the latest version from this webpage. The latest release version is Autostitch v2.184

Looks very cool and handy. I'll check it out. I think Photoshop CS2 has something like this?

THANKS! :thumbsup:

A free and powerful Java panorama viewer is PTViewer.
Works very well :)
It's part of the panotools, which also includes free stitchers and other tools, as well as some GUI front ends (mostly commercial?)
