What Kind of Virtual Tour Is This?

I'll try to explain this as best I can.

We have a client who wants us to include some of their old virtual tours in a new presentation we're making for them. We requested the original files, and they've gone to their original suppliers and come back to us with the "original images" used to create their presentation.

The images in question seem to belong to a type of panorama I've never seen before consisting of eight portrait, rectangular images. Six around, one up, one down. The files seem to piece together to make a hexagonal prism - with the top and bottom faces overlapping.

Their original tour was made in Pano2VR, but Pano2VR won't accept the files. As there's no overlap between the six horizontal images, we can't stitch them.

Has anyone ever encountered this type of panorama before? How we can convert them to a format KRPano accepts?

I'm not fully sure but I think PTGUI outputs such files...

Converting them back probably requires a by-hand created pts file...

Best regards,

This sounds like it was created by the old Flash Panorama Player script.

By dropping in there it will convert to a sphere (if you can find it again)
