Seems like the hard part for doing this is a camera rig, but LW is made for this. I can probably figure out how to set up the Advanced Camera, but what else do you need for 360 video on YouTube?

You have to insert some metadata before uploading to youtube.

This guide is for blender but applies equally to LW:

Thanks! Looks like that will work for me.

I was surprised a search didn't turn this up. I can't be the first one to go looking.

You need to setup a advanced camera. I did it once, don't remember exactly. I think in cylinder mode 360 degrees fov horizontal and the same vertical. But be aware advanced camera is not multithreaded. Just one core.

Boy, you open up a video like that with your mobile device, and it's suddenly a VR controller... I see some possibilities here for cool animations!

Just did a test with Octane and it's panorama camera and it works perfectly. BTW Octane is Multithreaded of sorts (GPU not CPU)...so no limitation there.

liberty 3d ubercam also works multithreaded, but lw3dg needs to update advanced camera.

TrueArt's Environment Baking Camera (http://modelingpack.trueart.eu) is made for this, and you don't have to set up anything

In LW built-in camera there are distortions at top and bottom AFAIK.
Not to mention multi-threading issues.

Hee!

I set up a simple scene, with some cheesy Bullet animations, put the camera in a cage in the center, and popped this out in no time:

Yeah, I should have lit the scene better, and put a pause in before the action starts. One of my columns jumps before it's supposed to...

But doing this is cool! Try it on your cell phone or tablet. (Looking around by turning your device around in new directions.) Not as much fun on a PC.

Now, I just have to come up with a good use for this technology.
