Hey guys.

Just wondering if anybody knows a website/company/tool that does something like this:

https://matterport.com/

But as you see, this uses a camera to generate the images. I want to render out parts of a LightWave scene to create a similar environment.

Any suggestions?

Not sure if it's exactly the same type of thing...

That's a neat website but not what I am after.

I need something that you can walk around and navigate.

Hoping somebody can help :)

You can probably make something you are after in Unity, with Chilton's help! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emgbiNinbZU

Create in LW, output as FBX, navigate in Unity.

That was my first line of thinking, but I don't want to force people to install a 3rd party plugin, there are so many browser rendered utilities out there.

HELP!

Can't you make the thing in Unity, and export it to a web browser? Nothing would get installed. I've never tried it..

This looks like a similar product/service, InsideMaps (https://www.insidemaps.com/). Basically both of these products are emulated Google Maps Street View with HTML 5.

It seems like these sites want you to become reliant on them so you upload your stuff to process on their side. With Unity 3D, while it does require a client to install Unity 3D for their browser, I think you will overall have greater control over your product. Plus, if a VR tour is interesting to your clients that's a component that could be added to your Unity 3D project.

Browser. That seems like an added requirement. :|

Obviously the Matterport people managed to do it, without an APPARENT plugin download in Chrome. I'd suggest determining what facility in the browser they are using, and gank that. "Embedded WebGL", whatever that is.

This looks like an advanced version of the old QTVR tours I used to make. I used panoramic software to photograph rooms and create tours:

You'd stitch together some photos to make these and the software would make them interactive. No reason you couldn't do that with renders from LW.

I thought Apple had deprecated QTVR, and QT in general. Is that wrong? I know that QT support was dropped from AE.

Quicktime is still very present in OSX (Apple os).
Just the Windows version was dropped.

I know QT is no longer available on the PC. This company offers an HTML5 version, though.

Not having QT on Windows makes sharing files with my Mac user friends nearly impossible.
