I feel it's a silly question, but can't seem to find the answer:

I want to use the commandline to convert a file to cubic.
I have tried to create a Droplet, have tried to use a shortcut to Pano2QTVR.exe and I have tried to use a batchfile, but I can't seem to find the exact command strings.

For instance, the parameters I have got for a 'SendTo' droplet are:
"C:\Program Files\Pano2QTVR\Pano2QTVR.exe" -x -c convert2cubic.cfg

It creates the cubes nicely, but either in the Pano2QTVR directory or in the last used Windows directory, depending on whether or not I have the 'Start In ...' parameter set.
But no way are they created in the current directory from where I send the equirectangular file...

Must be simple... Any clue?

There is a readme.html attached to pano2qtvr where you will find the answer.
You can add for example

Code: Select all

-f $f_cube 
to the command line.

Brilliant as usual! Thanks Thomas!

I did see and read the README, I just didn't realise that specifically naming the cubes would put them in the right directory. But it does, so yep, now it works.
