I'm in need of some code.
I have a 3D scene and can generate images for the 6 directions N E S W and Up and Down. There is a java applet i found which takes these images and produces a fully 3D panoramic view, which is what i'm after.
I've learnt that this applet take the 6 images and projects them onto a cube and rotates that and it looks fantastic.
My problem is, it's a java applet. I need to integrate this into my program. I haven't started writing the program yet so the language is open, tho i'd prefer it to be in C++ or VB (I love them both).
Is there anyone who can help me?
If there's a way other than OpenGL than that'd be great, my machine doesn't run OpenGL 100% successfully. I'm looking for some kind of formula to map the images onto a square view, rather than any renderer.
