QuickTime VR Authoring Studio
Announced at MacWorld Boston, QuickTime VR Authoring Studio is a new
professional software tool based on QuickTime VR technology that allows web
designers and multimedia authors to quickly and easily create QuickTime VR
panoramas and objects.

QuickTime VR Authoring Studio incorporates features which are intended to
simplify the production process of a QuickTime VR panorama movie. Unlike
other VR authoring tools, QuickTime VR Authoring Studio helps create
multi-node QuickTime movies containing objects and panoramas.

QuickTime VR is the acknowledged standard for creating and viewing
photo-realistic environments (panoramas) and real-world objects on Mac OS
and Windows computers. Users interact with QuickTime VR content with a
complete 360 degree perspective and control their viewpoint through the
mouse, keyboard, trackpad, or trackball. Using a QuickTime VR authoring
tool, panoramas and objects are automatically 'stitched together' from
digitized photographs or 3D renderings to create a realistic visual
perspective.

Availability/Pricing
QuickTime VR Authoring Studio is expected to be available in November
through retail channels and will be priced at U.S. $395.
