hi, i know it could be impossible or far fetched but, these are from a place that is no longer around and has been torn down and i hope to have them as keepsake if possible. I have a set of 9 panoramas from this location. I had a raid failure over a decade ago thus some MOV files exported so not load fully either. the raw images do not load properly anymore.

I tried installing Quicktime Player and using the open file, it actually works with some missing cubic faces but the panorama actually loads. The PQP file still loads but as the images are corrupeted, there is no way to output the equirectangular or cubic image again. it either hangs or create gray cubic images.

the QT output is here if anyone can figure out a way to reverse it from that back to cubic faces. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rZjZ58 ... sp=sharing

the only file not corrupted was the resized equirectangular image here, it's too small to output any meaningful html5. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1m9X92l ... sp=sharing

You could look into Bixorama: https://www.outerspace-software.com/bixorama
It states it can import QTVR and export the 6 cube face images.

Did you try Pano2VR?

Import your .MOV then click "Convert". Choose "cube faces".

(Import the .MOV by clicking the blue folder, navigate to the QTVR file.)
