Version 2.4
24th March 2011

A new version of Walkabout3d is now available. It has an improved set of functions to deal with panorama generation, and also with communication of panoramas to the Walkabout3d Mobile app. You can now use a WiFi link to upload panoramas directly to the iPhone app. In addition, if you email a panorama file to your iPhone, then you will be given an option in the email message to open with Walkabout3d Mobile.

We have also added an import option for panoramas - this allows you to generate the panorama cube faces using other software packages and then import these into Walkabout3d for viewing on iPhone. For instance, by using a rendering package, like Artlantis, you can dramatically improve the render quality of the panoramas, and still view them using Walkabout3d Mobile. The workflow for this is very similar to producing the base cubic images for "GoCubic"

The (free) Walkabout3d Viewer, will now also open panoramas; this is a neat solution of distributing visualisations of complex models to clients who may have computers with less powerful graphics cards.

We are now working towards the next major version which will dramatically improve the real-time rendering quality with in Walkabout3d.
