new stitcher based on PanoTools format
We just released, in beta, a new stitching tool dedicated to stitching videos, called VideoStitch : http://www.video-stitch.com
The stitching engine has been written from scratch to run on the GPU, with the CUDA platform, providing huge speed benefits compared to actual CPU stitcher, which is critical when doing videos.
The calibration part is based on either PTGui or Hugin. We're handling all the common feature, and advanced feature such as masking are coming soon ( even though, it's far from obvious to handle this 2 formats ! many PTGui settings are the inverse or the opposite of the Hugin one )
If you're thinking to go to the 360 market, you should definitely give it a try ! :-)
We have a demo with some footage based on GoPro 2 on the download page if you haven't any camera yet. And it's free to use with an export resolution of 1600x800 while we are in beta.
I would be happy to know what the PanoTools community think about it !

You will use VideoStitch, and more generally 360 videos to have more "life" in your panorama.
But it's still a complicated process at the moment. Hopefully, VideoStitch should help ... on the stitching step.
Another main problem right now is the bandwidth. The video have to be very large, and with low end connection, it doesn't work very well.
But of course all this will evolve very quickly !
