I use Hugin to generate my spherical panoramas because I need more tweaking than ICE can provide. So I have a final image that I want to upload to photosynth. I don't own photoshop (I use gimp), so I cannot use the plugin. I am comfortable using hdmake from the command line.
1) I cannot find a way to upload a hdmake generated project to photosynth. Is this correct?
2) I cannot find a way to feed my image into ICE so that it recognizes the 360 degree "wrap-around.
So am I looking at a feature-request, or is there another way of accomplishing it? TIA?
(P.S. For examples of my work, see http://richmacdonald.blogspot.com/ and filter on "panorama". I've done 360cities.net and gigapan hosting, and hosted my own hdmake files, but would like to give photosynth a try.)
