Creating a panorama requires photo stitching. Taking good photos is the
hardest part of the process. After you take a whole bunch of photos (or only
a few photos if you have a fisheye lense), you create a panorama by using a
program like Hugin. Hugin will do most of the work but you do have to guide
it along depending on the scene....
You end up with one .jpg image generate from Hugin... load that image into
flash... create a pv3d material out of the image... reverse the material...
apply the material to a sphere... place your camera inside the sphere...
That's pretty much it.
When I created one of these I looked at the following example:
Keep in mind this example uses an improper image and that's why it looks
bad. Also, the example uses an old version of PV3D, the new version has
sphere built-in so it's easier than it used to be... I imaging there must be
another example out there using PV3D 2.0 ....
The Hugin BLOG website has some really good tutorials on it you might be
