PixAround



something that might interest you:

just came across
http://www.touristorama.com/files/mykonosPix1/mykonos1.htm
and seems it was made with PixAround.

The player is a Java applet, though I didn't see the Java Plugin comeup and handle it but the MSJava must have shown it (strange since I had Sun's Java Plugin set to handle applets - some updates I installed from windowsupdate.com might have change this setting, just changed it back). Seems to behave very smoothly on MSJava, maybe a bit better than in Sun Java

Some year ago I had tried an older windows application of PixAround for stitching and it seemed to do very clever autostitching of images

so I visited PixAround.com and saw they also support multinode and have a nice transition effect when you click a hotspot: it scroll/zooms up to a certain place towards the hotspot, bringing it at the center of the view, then transitions (maybe while it was zooming it was downloading already the next view in the background so that the user won't notice it downloading)

their applet syntax is something like the following, grabbed from the http://www.PixAround.com webpage (notice the "world" parameter below), which is quite simple, though I assume they generate it via some visual tool (btw the pano at their main page seems a bit distorted probably cause they start it up at wrong FOV)
