Patches etc.

  • Ken Turkowski (former Apple software developer) has a patch to increase fov, provide link(s)
  • any known tips and tricks?
  • "see also" section should point to Pano2QTVR, deliVRtor, conVRter, VRPrep,...
  • Software for Mac OS 9 and earlier that was not updated to run in OS X natively can be used in Classic mode on pre Intel based Macintosh computers. How to increase memory allocation for the application in Classic --Carl 15:01, 3 December 2006 (CET)
  • HowTo increase an app's memory when running Classic under OSX? Search for 'memory allocation classic application' (in your systems language) in 'Macintosh Help' or http://search.info.apple.com/. You will find articles about Adjusting the memory allocation for the Classic environment (very interesting, that is about increasing temporary memory for the classic environment) and How to set memory use for Classic Applications. Basically just click on the program icon, open the program's information window, and in the 'memory' section increase the 'preferred' memory size.--Carl 23:56, 3 December 2006 (CET)

OK, some of that is done. Screenshots could be useful, too. There are also still some free tools available from Apple that feature some of the more basic functionalities of QTVRAS. --Carl 18:01, 8 February 2008 (CET)

QTVRAS history

  • The predecessor of QTVRAS required to install Apple's environment to develop software and had no user interface (script based). Similar to the early days of PanoTools but even more complicated for the typical Mac user.
  • Apple stopped selling QTVRAS (still version 1.0) silently with the introduction of Intel based Macs. A reason might be that the new Macintosh generation doesn't support Classic mode. Pano2QTVR (Windows app) seems to be the only application on the market today that covers all or most of the functionality of QTVRAS and sometimes even outperforms it. --Carl 14:31, 3 December 2006 (CET)
