A tool for assembling six JPEG cube faces into a QTVR file. This is currently a single perl script with no external dependencies, it should run on any platform.

Usage: jpeg2qtvr [options] --prefix=PREFIX > OUTPUT

eg. use --prefix=foo_ if the front, right, back, left, up and down JPEG tiles
are named foo_0.jpg, foo_1.jpg, foo_2.jpg, foo_3.jpg, foo_4.jpg and foo_5.jpg


  --date     date in seconds since January 1st 1970, defaults to current time
  --name     title of the panorama
  --width    preferred window width, defaults to 1024
  --height   preferred window height, defaults to 768
  --outfile  name for output mov file, otherwise result goes to STDOUT
  --pan      initial pan (yaw), defaults to 0.0 degrees
  --tilt     initial tilt (pitch), defaults to 0.0 degrees
  --fov      initial vertical angle of view, defaults to 60 degrees
  --min-fov  minimum vertical angle of view, defaults to 10 degrees
  --max-fov  maximum vertical angle of view, defaults to 120 degrees
  --preview  prefix for preview track JPEG tiles

It is approximately feature-comparable with freepv, the free QTVR viewer. Advanced features such as sub-tiling and header compression may be added later (but may not).

The tool has been moved into the Panotools::Script perl module in the PanoTools sourceforge project, you can download jpeg2qtvr directly from the there.

This is a command-line tool, if you are looking for an easy to use GUI tool for creating QTVR files, then you should probably download Pano2QTVR instead:

Finally, here is an example QTVR created with jpeg2qtvr via the erect2qtvr helper tool, the command used to create this was:

erect2qtvr --erect=attic.tif --pan=30 --fov=90 --tilt=30 --name='Attic, erect2qtvr demo'
