    Default 360/180 Spherical Panorama (QTVR)

    How to export a 360/180 spherical panorama (QTVR) from Revit?
    As far as I can see there's no "type" or field of view (FOV) properties at the Revit's camera.

    If Revit can't do it directly, what is the best alternative to do it by exporting to an external applicaton?

    Revit 4.0 had the ability to do panaramas when they had the Accurender engine. When Revit kicked out Accurender and went with the Metal Ray engine we lost panorama capabilities. You could create a series of cameras around your object you want to render and then stitch all those images with a post processing app that will create a QTVR?

    You can do these types of renderings with Autodesk Cloud rendering services. Once the rendering is complete you can choose to render the same camera as a panorama.

    Jeff, I used 360 to render to a panorama today and it's pretty slick. Do you know if there's a way to view the panorama files after they've been downloaded? They download as jpgs and are just a string images.

    I believe they must be viewed online in order to pan around. You could probably use the string of JPGS to create your own Panorama that could be viewed offline but you would need some kind of stiching/viewing software and i don't know what would be able to do that off the top of my head. I bet Google could be your friend and point you in the right direction to find something to do it.

    I have used this program: Autostitch

    Photoshop does the trick easily:
    File/Automate/Photomerge

    Shift-select the images and click OK. Voila!
