RE: [PanoToolsNG] Walk through into 360Panoramas
- Oh I see. I'll take a look in ie. Since I was in firefox. I apparently
didn't see "any" of the good stuff at all.

Yes, in ie, there is something to see. The walkthroughs are very nice in
flash. It's interesting to note the video registration with the 360. I guess

your video camera.
On the upside of the browser issue.. Microsoft.com now supports firefox.
They have their wga plugin available and you can continue to use the site.

because otherwise I don't know how the parallax problems (the camera
moves around corners for instance) could have been solved.

Since in the tutorial a "demo mode" watermark is visible, maybe he'll
come up with some commercial application eventually.
