Cubic Panorama Seams - Macromedia Director 3D

I created a cubic panorama by placing images on the 6 faces of a box but I can see the seams. Is it possible to close the gaps so that you can't see the seams?...

    Cubic panoramas doesn't look realistic.
    If you need my advice: use a semi-sphere with planar UV mapping.

    I have been pretty happy with cubic panoramas.
    Here is a link to a site I created using cubic and cylindrical panoramas:

    These were created as Quicktime VR but now I have a need to
    put them in Director and have them link to each other.

    The sample I created in Director look great with exception of the seams.

    Excellent work there !
    For those interested: it's a QuickTime movie generated with RealViz Stitcher.
    But it's useful only for static purposes.
    How do you intend to use it in a realtime 3D world ?.

    But if you're a fan of "cubic panoramas", you deserve an answer.
    Those "gaps" are there because of buggy mapping and/or bad lighting.
    A very talented guy (Barry S) has a tutorial on this subject :

    Well, as you probably have seen, I do have hotspots set up to go from location
    to location, (i.e. entering the doors) so it is interactive in that sense but
    sometimes I have problems with getting the hotspots in the correct locations.

    Anyhow, I had a client see this sample and now they want me to do a version
    for them on CD-ROM to show off their products. I can't get the hotspots to
    translate between Quicktime and Director so I thought I would try setting up
    the panoramas in Director 3d. This would also eliminate the requirement for the
    Quicktime plug-in.

    Also, in Director I used the Drag Camera behavior to make the camera pan
    around the room. Is there a way to keep the camera vertically upright so it
    does not rotate diagonally and become disorienting? I can turn off the vertical
    pan and just have it pan horizontally but it would be nice to be able to pan
    vertically as well.

    Sorry for all the questions.

    Thanks for the feedback.
