Version 18.104.22.168 (2006-10-26)
- Added a page to support some
Pano2QTVR parameters. Initial field
of view, initial pan, initial tilt and compression may now be set from
- Some minor bug fixes.
- Version 22.214.171.124 of pano12.dll is now installed.
Version 126.96.36.199 (2006-09-08)
- Included version 1.2.10 of
Pano2QTVR in the installation.
Version 188.8.131.52 (2006-07-01)
- Added the ability to optimize the "360Precision way" and save as a
template. To do this, hold the CTRL-key down while pressing "Auto optimize"
(this is a temporary solution and will change in the future).
Version 184.108.40.206 (2006-06-14)
- Included version 1.2.2 of
in the installation.
Version 220.127.116.11 (2006-06-05)
- Included version 1.2.1 of
in the installation.
Version 18.104.22.168 (2005-12-27)
- Included version 1.1.7 of
in the installation.
- PanoWizard now supports the creation of partial
panoramas again (this feature was removed in the previous version).
- Added an auto-optimize feature for single row
Version 22.214.171.124 (2005-10-16)
- Pano2QTVR is now
used to create QuickTime movies instead of PanoCube. This enables PanoWizard
to create preview tracks while loading the panorama. Advanced users may
configure the "pano2qtvr.cfg" section in PanoWizard.xml. The
initial pan/tilt/fov parameters are not yet supported, they are set by a
standard value specified in PanoWizard.xml.
- PanoWizard now only supports the creation of full 360 x
180 panoramas. This is what PanoWizard initially was designed for and by
removing single row stitching the user interface is simplified a bit. Advanced users may still edit the script file to enable
single row stitching.
Version 126.96.36.199 (2005-08-21)
- PanoWizard now installs version 1.1.6 of
Version 188.8.131.52 (2005-06-25)
- Added the "-WrapMode 1" option when creating 360° x 180° panoramas using
to the installation. It is still a beta release but seems to work just fine.
There are still some TIFF format issues resulting in blank output but this is
easily fixed in PhotoShop.
the default option when blending.
Enblend is still available when selecting TIFF output.
to the installation.
- Minor bug fixes.
Version 184.108.40.206 (2005-05-15)
- Modified the 'auto optimize' feature to support any number of images in
the panorama. For this to be possible, an image type (horizontal, zenith
or nadir) is required for each image. This feature is still only available
when creating full 360 x 180 panoramas. The first horizontal image is the
anchor image and yaw will not be optimized for that image.
- You may now select a control point by clicking on it in the control point
editor (you do not have to press TAB until it is selected).
- In version 220.127.116.11 all images were cached so they could be displayed
faster. However, this actually decreased performance since it took more memory.
Images are now only cached when inside the control point editor.
Version 18.104.22.168 (2005-04-19)
- Optimized the control point editor. Images are now loaded and displayed a
- Modified the 'Auto optimize' feature to fit the Nikon D70 + 10.5 mm using
6, 6 + 1, 6 + 1 + 1 shots or 6 + 1 + 3. The images must be ordered in the following way: first 6
horizontal images (left to right order), then the zenith image, optionally followed by
two nadir images and finally a hand held nadir image as the last image. Make
sure to have a fairly accurate v value before optimizing. For the Nikon
10.5 mm, 87.5 seems to be a good value.
- Fixed a GDIPLUS bug in the installation for Windows ME.
- PanoWizard now supports optimizing the g and t variables.
Version 22.214.171.124 (2005-04-11)
- Changed the optimization process a bit. PanoWizard now supports different
v, a, b, c, d and e variables for
Version 126.96.36.199 (2005-03-21)
- Enabled PanoWizard to use the
SmartBlend utility when
panorama output format is other than TIFF.
Please note that SmartBlend is not included in the installtion since it is not
freeware. SmartBlend.exe along with it's DLL files should be manually copied
to the Windows directory or the PanoWizard application directory.
- Added the 'Auto optimize' feature for full 360 x 180 panoramas. It seems
to work OK if you have vertical/horizontal control points. However, the 'v'
parameter must be somewhat accurate for it to produce good results.
Version 188.8.131.52 (2005-03-19)
- When generating control points in previous versions using AutoPano, a
temporary directory was created and never removed. This is now fixed.
- Some AutoPano parameters where also changed. PanoWizard now uses the same
default parameters as Hugin.
- Added the ability to display the control point distances in the control
point editor by holding down the SPACE key.
- Added an 'Optimize' button inside the control point editor.
Version 184.108.40.206 (2005-02-19)
- Added the latest version of
Enblend (2.2) to the installation.
- Nothing really new in PanoWizard, just changed some texts and icons.
Version 220.127.116.11 (2005-01-27)
- Added support for the faster stitching option in version 18.104.22.168 of PanoTools. New panorama projects have this option set by default.
Version 22.214.171.124 (2005-01-13)
- Modified the installation. All required files are now included in the
setup (that includes Microsoft XML3, Microsoft GDI+ and Microsoft C++ run-time
files). Users that has installed PanoWizard prior to this release should
uninstall before installing this version.
Version 126.96.36.199 (2005-01-08)
- Added the ability to optimize the 'd' and 'e' variables.
- Added a thumbnail image preview for images.
- Version 188.8.131.52 of PanoTools is now installed in the application folder (see
Jim Watters home
page for more information)
- Added an installation program.
- Modified the generation process when using
- Fixed a bug in the control point editor. The tabs where not set to
correctly when entering/exiting the dialog.
- Added the Enblend feature when choosing the TIFF output format.
- PanoWizard now uses MSXML3.DLL instead of MSXML4.DLL for greater
- Prepared PanoWizard for using Enblend. Not yet implemented though. Waiting
for some spare time...
- Added the feature to create a HTML wrapper to display a QuickTime movie.
Advanced users may edit the PanoWizard.xml file to create their own HTML
- Improved the Control Point Editor a bit I think. Zoom
in/out now works a bit better.
- Added the feature to add horizontal images.
- Added the ability to add control points using
AutoPano for just two
- AutoPano may now be used to generate control points. This greatly improves the panorama making process!
- Added support for a few more camera models like Canon PowerShot S230, Sony DSC-V1 and Canon IXUS
300 (if you are using a camera not supported, just send me a picture taken
with the camera and I will do the rest).
- Added support for screens where the vertical resolution is higher than horizontal in the Control Point Editor. Images are then placed on
top & bottom (instead of left & right).
