Automatic stitching engine
With Autodesk Stitcher Unlimited 2009, users can create partial or full spherical panoramas in just a few clicks. All the steps can be automated: stitching, alignment and colour correction.
Users can stitch images taken with a two-shot fisheye lens; an effective way to create fully spherical virtual tours with only two pictures.
Stitcher Unlimited 2009 enables artists to create exceptionally high-quality environment maps and panoramas through its support for EXR and HDR input and output.
Web content creators can create Apple QuickTime VR application program hotspots; links integrated within a panorama, which reference another panorama.
The tripod cap is a highly practical feature that enables users to cover up the tripod in their image with an image of their own.
Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) acceleration
Autodesk Stitcher Unlimited 2009 is optimized to take advantage of graphics card GPUs for preview rendering in the main Viewport. The GPU is now also used to accelerate final renders.
Selectable rendering area
Using the Stitcher Unlimited crop tool, artists can precisely select an area to be rendered. This tool can be used while in full-screen mode.
New User Interface (UI) and Workflow
Stitcher Unlimited 2009 has been given a new look and feel through a redesigned user interface, including new icons and a new palette to manage thumbnails more efficiently.
