QuickTime VR Software Overviews

Apple's QTVR Authoring Studio hasn't been updated since 1998! Back when it was the only QTVR authoring software around, it was acceptible - now it's just ridiculous. In these pages, I will give semi-detailed overviews of what two of the newest Mac QTVR software packages - Realviz Stitcher 3.1, and VR Toolbox VR Worx 2.1 - are capable of, and how their features, user-friendliness, and overall design compare with each other. Both overviews are specific to the OS X software versions, although the OS 9 versions aren't significantly different.

These overviews do not include information on shooting QTVRs. For more information regarding QTVR setup, hardware tips, and image-touchup tips, see Mike Kimball's overview of QuickTime VR.
