The [[Panorama tools]] distribution only ever worked on Classic Macintosh OS (pre OS X).  So now, the only versions of [[Panorama tools]] that work on OS X are the shareware (not free) application [[PTMac]], and the Linux version of the original distribution, though I'm not sure if anyone has gotten that to work.

Basic Library

The original library on Mac Classic is the pano12.lib which was placed in the System extensions folder. This library hasn't been updated since version 2.6b1 and does not include the fast transformation or multi processor support. The OS X version supplied by Kekus Digital to run with PTMac is called PanoTools.bundle and has many updates including fast transform by default, multi-processor support, improved optimizer (including Altivec optimizations), etc.

The current version of Panorama Tools on Sourceforge builds on OS X and is basically the same as the version supplied by Kekus Digital, this provides the main library (the libpano12.dylib file), PTOptimizer and panoinfo.

Stitching Software

There are two Panorama Tools front-end applications available for OS X, these are Hugin (Open Source) and PTMac (shareware).

Helper

clens, autopano-sift, PTOptimizer, nona, nona_gui, Enblend and panoglview are all available for OS X as part of the Hugin bundle.

Remallax removes some parallax of hand-shot panoramas prior to stitching. Just a project in inception, nothing usable available
