Anyone know of a good panorama autostitch software (Mac)? Answered

I have taken a lot of panoramas as of late, and ive not gotten around to stitching them together. I am looking for a good panorama autostich software, mac compatible, and preferable in my price limit (free). Just something to stich together a few 360s and the odd 4 pic pana. :)
Thanks!

If you can run Windows software, you can try Hugin (free, but somewhat wierd to use) or the Microsoft Image Composing Editor ICE (free, easy to use, powerful - good enough for maybe 97% of my panoramas - definitely my choice)

For Mac? Sorry, no idea.

Tried hugin, works ABSOLUTE WONDERS for my panos. Tried a 13 pic 360 (taken somewhat on the fly and unevenly), and it stitched together no problem! (It did say the image was a bat fit, but I took a look and it looks fine to me). Alternatively tried a 30 image ( =O ) 360 panorama, took a bit on the long side (~15min) but stitched beautifully :) Huge pluses are that hugin is mostly automatic- a few clicks and the auto fires up, will give lots of informative messages, and it can be done entirely manually if you want too- plus it gives quite a few editing options :)
Turns out I have a few bundled panorama stitchers, tried them for the same images and it gave me a horrible, messed up, crazily exposed image. So hugin is great!!
Thanks!
now to find what the heck im gonna do with 100mb pix.... :)

Can't say for mac...

microsoft Image Composition Editor is brilliant, free, and inputs/outputs many formats -- its all automated, just drop the files and it does the rest. I've found nothing remotely close to as easy and high quality...only trouble is you need windoze.
