About Stitcher Unlimited 5.6
REALVIZ Stitcher is a photo stitching and image assembling software for the
creation of professional-level panoramas and 360° virtual tours. Starting
from digital images, the software's powerful central automatic stitching
engine enables a diverse range of users to create high-quality panoramas,
large-format prints, matte paintings, reflection maps and textures for
film/television, as well as dynamic virtual tours for the real estate and
tourism industries.

REALVIZ Stitcher Unlimited 5.6 now has full HDR compatibility for the very
first time, enabling users to load, stitch, and save HDR (High Dynamic
Range) images. With HDR imaging, users are able to create projects, which
combine under- and over-exposed areas in the same harmonious panorama. A perfect synergy with the external tools available on the market for image
tone mapping, such as Adobe® Photoshop®, Photomatix® or HDR Shop, is ensured through compatibility with the most commonly used HDR image file formats: OpenEXR (.exr, 16 or 32 bits per channel), and Radiance RGBE (.hdr). The enhanced core engine of Stitcher Unlimited 5.6 makes all image processing operations available for images with 32 bits per channel. HDR panoramas produced with Stitcher Unlimited 5.6 can be used as a lighting environment map for 3D studios to obtain ultra-realistic 3D scenes, and to ensure consistent lighting of virtual objects placed in real environments.

"Over the last 6 or 7 years, we have tried many different programs to
achieve a high-quality 360-degree image suitable for large format
reproduction. Some of the images have been up to 20m in length. Without a
doubt, the REALVIZ Stitcher software series, and most recently Stitcher
Unlimited, has produced the best results." Nick Wood, Photographer & Author, UK -
