Licensing the SPi-V engine
The new SPi-V engine was written from the ground up to allow panoramic photographers to use the engine, taking advantage over the diverse unique features of SPi-V.
Photographers and content developers are free to use a free version of SPi-V. If you use some of the more advanced features of SPi-V, the free version will include some fieldOfView branding. Branding free versions are available for license.

To help you place an order for a SPi-V license, fieldOfView has created the SPi-V license tool. The SPi-V license tool is available for Windows and Mac OS X, and like the SPi-V engine itself requires the Macromedia Shockwave plugin.
