Using Panorama Tools without a graphical helper application is very difficult. There are a number of GUI front-ends to make the process easier.

The following lists are in approximate order of creation (please re-arrange if inaccurate).

[edit] Basic control point pickers

  • Panorama Tools Plugins still contain the original control-point selection process, this involved pasting little barcodes into source images and was extremely laborious (Open Source, Windows, Linux, Mac).
  • PTPicker is a java application for creating control-points that superceded the bar code method (Freeware, Windows, Linux, Mac).
  • ControlPoints is a control-point selection tool (Freeware, Windows only).
  • PanoPoints is a control-point picker written in Perl (Open Source, Linux).

[edit] Full workflow management (including control point picking)

[edit] Other specialist GUIs

  • Pano2QTVR is a new and very promising Windows shareware project to convert equirectangular (360°x180°) panos to QuickTime and Flash cubic movies and link them together to virtual tours. Includes Hotspot Editor, sound sprites and object movies.
