I have used 3 HDV cameras attached to a car to film a scene. The cameras are pointed to the front and to the sides. All cameras have been used with fisheye lenses.

I now need to stitch these 3 videos together to make a ultra widescreen video, like you are able to do with quicktime VR for photos.

I have been trying to get the videos setup manually, but it isn't working to good. Are there any plugins or software that could help me? I have been search the internet, but can't find anything on this topic.

There are subjects that are moving between cameras, which I guess complicates this abit.

Thanks in advance!

Don't know about plugins but -- here's one thought:

You mentioned the three video pieces were shot with a fisheye... Maybe try adding the "Optics Compensation" effect then checking the "Reverse lens Distortion" and taking the distortion out of the shots. Then they might line up more elegantly... just a thought....
