      Hey, yes you can use your EPAN files with our updated version of impress: https://impress.pcon-solutions.com/

      You just have to convert them into PNG format to display them in impress. To do so, you can for example use this page: https://www.360toolkit.co/convert-cubemap-to-spherical-equirectangular.html

      And this is how to proceed:
      - Change the file extension from EPAN to ZIP.
      - Extract the ZIP archive.
      - On the website, select the option “six separate files” (far right) and click browse.
      - Navigate to your zip archive and upload the following 6 images to the service: pano_b, pano_d, pano_f, pano_l, pano_r, pano_u.
      - You get a spherical panorama in PNG format.

      A little tip: Convert PNG files to JPG panoramas to keep the file size low. If the file size doesn’t matter to you, just keep the PNG.

      We hope this helps!
