As “possibly one of the simplest and easiest panoramic image stitching programs” (Panoguide.com, 2006), Panoweaver is being used by thousands of professional photographers, amateurs and multimedia designers. It helps creating perfect 360*180 degree spherical panoramas for print, interactive exhibitions in Flash, QTVR and Java player.
Panoweaver has always been an easy-to-use application, which stitches panoramas automatically. Panoweaver 5.00 has already supported fisheye photo stitching function; while in Panoweaver 6.00, cylindrical panorama stitching is provided. Fisheye photo stitching function is often used by professional photographers, because FOV of the fisheye photos usually reaches 180 degrees vertically and 360 degree horizontally, enabling creation of a full sphere. Spherical panoramas have high quality and contain every detail of the virtual place. Normal photo stitching can be used by almost every one, and the shooting process is also simple and requires no special shooting skills.
Panoweaver 6.00 is also developed to meet the needs of users in following fields:
Real Estate: Feature tours are widely used to display properties in 360 degrees. With Panoweaver 6.00, users can create 360 spherical panoramas (for those who have got fisheye lens) and cylindrical panoramas (for anyone who has got a digital camera) efficiently, and build single panorama tours in Flash, QuickTime and Java players. Then easily upload the panorama tours to websites like Realtor.com, or embed them in users’ own websites.
Tourism: 360 panoramic tours can be built for hotel, restaurant, shopping centers and many other places that are associated with tourism.
Exhibition, museum and other events: A panoramic tour is more than thousands of words for “describing” the event at the specific location.
College: College panoramic tours are also quite popular for showing the unique features of the college campus.
