I have made a patch with the purpose of showing a panorama which continuously scrolls left or right. The way I've done it now is cutting up a large photograph in 4 pieces. Each piece is placed on an 3d plane and when a plane goes out of view to the left, it is put after the last plane on the right (and the other way around). Your basic endless scrolling.
I've put the patch here http://www.autofasurer.net/panoscroll/
since it is 2.9Mb
I'm quite satisfied with the speed of this (running 60fps on an 1.9Ghz Imac G5 with 512ram) but I was wondering if my approach is maybe still "slow" and if so how this could be optimised.
Any comments are appreciated. Feel free to use the patch, please note though that the pictures are copyrighted.
