Ok I am not sure how to put my replies below the quoted text. But trying.
Is there a program that I can use to assemble multi row 360 views.
I have a program that does single row 360's (fly arounds) as well as the
automated hardware that comes as an automated product photography package
and I sell the imagery commercially.
As such I apologise for any incorrect terms however my focus is not verbage
it is simply to find a program that can assemble a presentation of a multi
row 360 that, when it (the program) pumps out an HTML5 or flash image,
enables the viewer to see 360 x 360.
That to me means all the way around on more than one plane, like a
spherical panorama but *viewed from the outside* of the sphere.
Take for example a shoe. I want to be able to look all the way around that
shoe along its horizontal plane as well as its vertical plane so I can see
the top and bottom as if I am holding it in my hand. UX stuff you know. Its
all about UX in online sales.
Thanks again to all that can help.
