I HAVE A LARGE PROJECT WERE I NEED TO PRODUCE 70 QTVRS OF VARIOUS OBJECTS. I ALREADY HAVE A SCENE CREATED WHICH WILL GIVE ME WHAt I NEED. UNFORTUNATELY THE COMPANY I WORK FOR HAS 2 BOXX COMPUTERS AND 2 MAC PRO'S RUNNING 64 BIT LIGHTWAVE. I WOULD LOVE TO USE ALL OF THE COMPUTERS TO MAKE THIS PROJECT. THE PROBLEM IS THAT 64BIT LIGHTWAVE FOR WINDOWS CANNOT PRODUCE THE QTVRS.

MY QUESTION IS IS ANYONE FAMILIAR WITH SAVING THE INDIVIDUAL FRAMES OF THE ANIMATION TO THEN COMPOSITE THE QTVR. WHAT PROGRAM CAN DO THIS?? IS THERE ANY OTHER ALTERNATIVE??

Try not to post with all caps, just fyi. Makes it kind of hard to read.

It doesn’t matter if you have Macs, PCs or whatever. One should only be rendering frames (a lot more said about this elsewhere). If you have a computer crash you will only need to pick up rendering from the last frame rendered.

If you want to assemble frames in LW, render as per usual on the PCs & then composite in LW on a Mac. Since you will then only be compositing & not rendering, it usually only takes a second or less per frame, even on a Mac Mini. Or 2 seconds or thereabouts on a prehistoric Dual 533 Mhz Mac.

Hi,

Unless your scenes are too complex or need too much memory to render, you can install LW 32 bits on your 64 bits OS to render. The problem to render QTVR on 64 bits it's the lack of a Quicktime for 64 bits.

I am fiddling with panoramas for a web page of a friend, but he used real photographs and used Pano2VR to assemble them. I am not too happy with the later support that their program gives to the panoramas talking through JavaScript to the web page thought.

I read as well on the Pano2VR forums that the latest QT upgrade killed the QTVR format.

7.6.4 QT VR not working any longer (http://gardengnomesoftware.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3296)

I found this one two days ago, but I didn't tried myself yet:

JonW actually has the best answer... it works like a charm. Lightwave will composite everything very quickly...Thank you all for the answers.
