Panopano is a 360° panorama viewer.
It also supports video transitions between panoramas, popup images, plugins.
A useful plugin is to extract/import a 'view' of the panorama (and modify it
with The GIMP).
How to load into Eclipse:
Install Java3D (see https://java3d.dev.java.net/ ).
Start Eclipse, create a new project in 'panopano/trunk/' with the sources in
In 'Project->Properties->Java Build Path', add the 2 external class folders
('lib/uncompressed', 'lib3d/uncompressed') -- or all the jar files in 'lib'
The 'main' method is in nikiroo.gui.MainForm.java.
How to install:
The programme is written in Java, but still needs Java3D.
So, the only thing you have to install is Java3D (see
How to run:
java -jar -Xmx1024m panopano.jar "$@"
(The -Xmx1024m means that you allocate 1024 Mb RAM to the JVM -- you can
fine-tune it to any value you like, but the greater the panorama, the more RAM
you need; 1024 should be enough for almost any panorama.)
How to embed in a webpage:
<APPLET archive="panopano.jar" code="net.homelinux.nikiroo.gui.JPanoApplet"
WIDTH="800" HEIGHT="600">An applet is here.</APPLET>
It will look for a file 'default.html' in the same directory.
Here is an example 'default.html' file:
<APPLET archive="panopano.jar" width="800" height="600">
<PARAM name="file" value="equi.pano.jpg" />
Note: you can look at 'tools.properties' in the archive: this is a working
plugin configuration file for Panopano.
It uses The GIMP, pafextract (from the package pano-scripts) and Hugin to
If you want to use it, you jave to put it in
"$HOME/.panopano/tools.properties" ($HOME looks like /home/user under Linux
and is somewhere in 'C:\Documents and settings' under Windows)
