      With PTGui internal remap or with Panotools remap? And which

      My usual panos give a max size of about 12000 and I usually output
      8000. With PTGui internal Lanczos I didn't see any problems. Well,
      that's above the limit, I see... Thanks for the info!

      Yes, intentionally. High quality - both small and large version -
      doesn't even pan on my fathers old mac, but since I hate the
      shimmering from bad (or no?) anti-aliasing and I suppose that most
      users of old machines will stick with the small version anyway I want
      the best viewing experience for full screen and recent computers.
