[PanoToolsNG] Plate vs. Food -or- Convert between PTViewer Java Tours and Flash/QT Tours
- Hello all,
A bit of a rant-with a specific question at the end-
Ok, I know I'm risking the wrath of the super-computer literate with this
I am not a developer, designer or mathematician.
I have heavily relied on the excellent work of this community to allow me to
do what I do best(and not perfected by any means yet), shoot images.
I also rely heavily on analogy so bear with me-
I've basically given up on trying to build/test/polish the plate(browser) my
food(panos) is served on.
Much less trying to figure out which restaurant(platform - Mac, PC, Linux,
etc...) it will be eaten in.
I'm trying to get my shooting/processing skills more and more accurate and
As Mr Vascon so eloquently stated a couple of weeks back,

BTW-Thanks to his excellent work, I've been working with both the Agnos
MRotatorC and the Ring for the 10.5 which are fantastic products. And will
soon be trying his tilted-monopod approach for some CommandoPanos :)
The point of this rant-I've got a project produced two years ago in PTViewer
and now I've got to convert it to Flash/QT. Everything was hand-coded using
NotePad and PhotoShop's measure tool to determine position, colors,
etc...(yes, I painfully went through a 2-month process of coding, testing
and re-coding the PTViewer commands-although rewarding, not economically
sustainable-and frustrating that it doesn't work on all computers with the
Sun vs. MS battle)
And I've never done a thing in Flash except been on the viewing end of
things(which are fantastic like Aldo Holden's SPI-V viewer, the Syndey Opera
House and others).
Anyway, here is the current version of this tour:
Now, the big question, is there a tool (that won't require a Master's degree
in software/computers) that can convert the code behind the scenes to run as
a Flash movie with the same functionality?
If not, who will build one and where do I send my $$.
