You can download pre-compiled versions of panoglview as part of the hugin installer bundles for OS X and Windows. panoglview is available for linux distributions through the usual channels.
Panoglview is intended to view full 180x360 (equirectangular) panoramas projected onto a globe which can be spun around using the mouse.
For viewing a partial panorama, you use project files. There are no examples in the distribution, but they can be created by opening an equirectangular image and saving a .paf 'project'.
These are simple text files and fairly self-explanatory, but the interesting thing is that these .paf files contain stuff like camera field-of-view, pan, tilt, boundaries and now partial panorama settings.
..anyway there is some future potential with all this:
- Creating a .paf project from a partial equirectangular .pto project.
- Panning to a view and using these settings as an initial QTVR/flash viewpoint.
- Panning to a viewpoint, saving the project and using nona to extract a high-res version of the view.
- This extracted view can be edited in something like the gimp and reinserted into the panorama - Basically the functionality of the old pteditor tool.
