The Output pane is where you not only add output formats but also where you export your panoramas.
To add an output format, click the green plus sign. You can choose from the following formats:
- QuickTime VR
- From Template – Select this to pick from a list of saved templates.
Once you choose an output format, the rest of the pane will be populated with the following. Not all output formats will have the same options.
Delete – This is the red X next to the green plus sign. Click to delete the current output or a template.
To delete a template, hover your mouse over Delete Template. Choose from the list of templates to delete one.
Save as Template – Save the current output (and its settings) as a template that can be used again or Replace a template.
To save the current output as a template, choose, Save as New Template. In the window that pops up, give the template a name.
Output Folder – All files associated with this output will be added to this folder unless otherwise specified. Its default location is in a folder named
output. It is located in the same folder as the source image.
You can change the output folder’s location by clicking the folder icon and navigating to the new location.
You can also choose the output folder by right-clicking on the folder name and choose, Edit. In the window that pops up, enter the new folder name.
Each output will create a unique folder name to avoid overwriting previous outputs.
Skin – ★ HTML5 and Flash outputs only
Here you can choose either one of the pre-installed skins or choose one that you have created.

★ Tip: The skin, simplex, uses scalable vector graphics.
