Creating 360 degree panoramic pictures used to be very time-consuming and expensive, but thanks to equipment like the Ricoh Theta and the Kodak pixpro we can now do it all with a click of a button!

As a result, creating panoramic photos is getting increasingly popular and we're currently updating the Bixorama app to meet all the feature requests.

In the above screenshots you can see some of the new features.

Panoramic photos can be used in Bluff in 2 ways:
1) skybox background: full 360 degree backgrounds!
2) DDS cubemaps: amazing reflections!

Next version of BluffTitler will feature a skybox layer. This is nothing more than a picture layer with the right styles (Sphere, Skybox, Single sided) and effect (Effects/Picture/Skybox), but saves a lot of time.

If you have any suggestions/requests please post them here. Thank you!

One new feature you can't see in the screenshots: rotation speed can be controlled by holding down the CONTROL or SHIFT key.
