This wiki aims to show you what you can do with the panorama tools and how to use them the best way.
The Panorama Tools, also known as The PanoTools are a free suite of programs and libraries originally written by the German physics and mathematics professor Helmut Dersch. PanoTools provides a powerful framework for re-projecting and blending multiple source images into immersive panoramics of many types.
An updated version of the PanoTools library serves as the underlying core engine for many software panorama GUI front-ends.
The panorama tools are mainly used to build panoramic images from a set of overlapping images. The usability extends beyond "just" building panoramas by far though. You can, for instance, use them to render an average of multiple images to broaden the dynamic range of the images or average out noise.
You can also build object movies with them, morph between images and much more.
