With DomuS3D, you can easily create 360 Panoramas to view with a Virtual Reality headset.
Discover how with these simple steps:
- In the navigation window, position yourself in the center of the room (you can click the "center" button in the Navigation ribbon).
- Straighten your viewpoint with the "N" key on your keyboard.
- Rotate left and right 360° with the keyboard arrows to make sure your framing is correct (you should be equidistant from walls, doors, windows, etc.)
- Save your viewpoint.
- Go back to the layout window: you'll now see a camera icon in the middle of your scene that represents your saved viewpoint.
- Right click on the camera: select "properties".
- Set the camera height: for average sized rooms, we recommend a height of 125-135cm (49-53").
- Confirm by clicking OK.
- Right click on the camera icon again and this time select "Navigate".
- From the Navigation window, select "Start Rendering" to open the rendering window.
- Select "Progressive" from the Mode dropdown menu and set your quality to "Maximum" (or "Very High" if you are using a lower-performing computer).
- If you choose, you can set a maximum time (in minutes) of at least 5 hours (300 minutes). We recommend processing the rendering overnight in order to have more time available: for example, 12 hours (720 minutes). If a maximum time is set, the rendering will automatically stop processing either when it reaches the quality selected or at the end of the maximum time set.
- Select "VR panorama" as "Type of Image".
- Set the Resolution:
- 1536 (for large images = 18.432 x 1536 pixels; a high performing computer is required). Alternatively,
- 1024 (for medium-large images = 8.182 x 1024 pixel). Alternatively,
- 512 (for medium-small images = 6.144 x 512 pixel) for mid-range computers.
- After having checked the correct exposure by clicking the "Preview/Modify" button, generate the rendering "job" and export it to Render Manager by clicking "Export Job for Render Manager..."
Select the folder that contains all your Render Manager jobs and rename your project file
