For the relatively few systems with QuickTime installed, LiveCode's 
support for QTVR is pretty good - see the node-related properties in the 
Dictionary.

It's nice, but the small number of QT installs on the 89% that run 
Windows, and the complete absence of QT on Linux, make it increasingly a 
non-starter for most projects here.

I don't do much professionally with QTVR, but I have enjoyed it as a 
hobby and am interested in seeing where this discussion leads.
