About The Panorama Factory
The Panorama Factory creates high-quality panoramas from a set of overlapping digital images. The Panorama Factory transforms (warps) the images in order to join them seamlessly into panoramas whose fields of view can range up to 360 degrees. The software also corrects for lens-induced distortions and creates either cylindrical or spherical image projections.
The Panorama Factory creates images that rival those made by expensive rotational and swing-lens panoramic cameras. Not only can The Panorama Factory facilitate creation of immersive VR worlds, it also provides features for the fine-art panoramic photographer who wishes to work from ordinary 35mm images or images captured with a digital camera.
