360 spherical camera renders

Post by ak-sam » Wed Dec 07, 2016 9:06 am

Hi Folks

Do you know how to render a scene as a spherical *360 degree) camera view from Sketchup?

Sketchup's camera is limited to 120 degree field of view.

Once I have that render, what's a good bit of software that can display the resulting file for showing to clients?

I don't need the camera to move at this stage.

I could render several shots and create a panorama using something like Arcsoft's free "360 panomaker"..but that's a pretty dumb workaround.
Thanks!

Maybe you could just change it in Indigo standalone. It has a 360 cam.

OK I found the settings for "Spherical Camera" located in Skindigo (camera type) and in Indigo (Camera properties). and it was surprisingly easy to get a good result! This is awesome!

So now I need to learn how to get this into a PDF...

Any tips?

Yeah - PDF ideally, or a web-based viewer. I guess either will be HTML5 or flash.
I have bluebeam review and adobe PDF Pro (Creative Suite) if that helps.
I'd be happy to pay a few $100s for a bit of software to do this nicely (but not $1000s).

If you haven't tried it...

Save as PANO_something.jpg
Download ExifToolGUI and edit like my pic.
Upload in google streetview on iphone or android.
Put phone in Google cardboard.

It's fun :D
