Realviz Stitcher EZ Image editing software
- — 07 April, 2003 07:12
The inexpensive Stitcher EZ by Realviz lets you quickly put together digital images to create an ultrawide JPEG im-age or a QuickTime VR pano-rama.
The $130 product works, but it bears little resemblance to the company’s advanced, $1100 Stitcher software.
EZ makes the stitching procedure dead simple: you drag in your images, click Process, and choose a format and a compression level. Click Save, and within minutes you get a finished image or panorama.
I was able to create good-looking 320x240-resolution panoramas. Unfortunately, it can’t create higher-resolution panoramas, and trying to magnify the originals makes them look pixelated.
Other drawbacks: you can create only cylindrical panoramas (not cubic ones); and if the stitching process fails, you’ll be out of luck because you can’t tweak anything.
Considering EZ’s limited capabilities, I’d balk at paying for it -— but I’d consider it a nice bonus if it happened to come bundled with a digital camera (as Real-viz hopes it will).
In brief: Realviz Stitcher EZ
Stitching software is fast and easy to use, but too limited.
