I have added the values to the http://www.pano2qtvr.com/dll_patch.php
page. This size is without shrinking.

I would say 50% to 100% slower than the original filters without fast
transformation since I always have to use the inverse transformation
to estimate the kernel size and for this reason, I can not use the
fast transformation code. The execution time also highly depends on the
amount of shrinking, because the kernel gets bigger, if there are more
pixels involved (f.e. for the center pixel in the zenith/nadir cube face I
have to average the full width of the equirectangular....)

It is always a good idea to have an independent tester... ;)

MfG,
     Thomas.
