Hi Michael, I use TW 1.3.
I expected this, since the always blurred impression was the reason to me NOT to buy TW 1.3 but wait for 2.0 (well, there are other issues with that version... plenty of stuff to read in this forum). The TW 2.0 player is a lot sharper, but you have no opportunity to exchange the published scene images with your own optimized ones.
I don't think your problem is due to bad equipment (Sigma 8 and corresponding camera to produce RAW is absolutely ok) nor to poor software, if you are happy with the final result prior to publishing by TW.
If you want to continue using TW 1.3 and your original images are crisp without additional sharpening I would say: Give Photoshop Unsharp Mask filter a try. Resize your original to your target size, do the sharpening with different parameters and see what parameters give the best result.
For me, e.g. a 2000x1000 image works fine with something like 150 - 0,6 - 3, aiming at ptviewer images. Some settings above/below should give you a feeling, what you need for TW 1.3 to display your fine panoramas less blurred (you only need to change the two first parameters, I think).
