i have tried the panofactory, and found much to like, but haven't bought it (yet) because of some features i miss. i'm wondering whether there's any chance of any of them appearing anytime soon:
- a rectilinear projection for printing (would be useful for builings, etc)?
- image overlaps that are not restricted to a single straight line (would be useful for people, cars, and other moving "objects")?
- easy way to replace images, maintaining all the warping, tuning, etc (would be useful for bracketed exposures, stitching first, then combining after the panos are done)?
- different size images (i know this has been answered before, but... well, not really: (i) you could set focal length with a pair of same size images, then stitch more images of different sizes, (ii) favoring programming simplicity at the cost of restraining the user doesn't sound like a great way to attract customers...)?
well, i'll finish here and wait for your insightful replies.
