I did 360 thingies for nissan cars and it always were  series of images.
you import those into a movieclip as serie of keyframes. On top of add two 
transparent movieclips,
each covering half of your image.
Give mouseover action to left movieclip: prevFrame() and nextFrame() to the 
right one.

you'll need to check boundaries e.g for the left movieclip:
if (this._currentFrame == 1)
    // e.g. if you have 24 keyframes

right one (moving forward):
if (this._currentFrame == 24)

basically thats it. you are done like in 5 minutes.

kind regards,
