View Full Version : 360 degree views...?

02-03-2011, 10:09 AM
Hello Forum. Is there any way for LW to create a 360 degree view of an object, similar to what you see on auto websites?

This is something that I would like to provide to my clients so they would be able to see/rotate their product along any & all axis, before moving to final render.

Thank you in advance for your guidance.

There's QTVR. Or I guess you could just do a rendered spin out of LW.

YEARS ago I did a QTVR render out of LW, so it's possible. I think I only did the turn though, didn't do "above" and "below".

I would hope that tech has advanced since those days.

Tell us how this turns out-- sounds like one of those tasks that is a huge PITA, but they you can re-use it forever.

How to set up a QTVR "turntable" is described in the LightWave 10 Surface and Render manual starting page 289, but don't worry if you have a previous version of LightWave, I'm pretty sure it's the same guide that has been in the manuals since 7.
