360 Panorama – Ray Trace

As we explore design options for the Grandview home, we generated a panorama image (using Chief Architect X9).

The 360 ray traced image below is composed of six images, like a cube, and then it is stitched together.  It went through 4 passes averaging 9 hrs./pass.  It is very large: 8878 x 4320 (approx. 4x the normal size we do at 1920 x 1080).

  1. Check out Luis’s 360! https://youtu.be/yVGu5qOvESU

    “I created this study for the vintage industrial contest, then I wanted to create the 360 video with the same design. I had to export from CA to 3DS format, then open it into sketchup and edit some materials because not all were compatible, then I use Vray to make 360 panoramic render. After that, I used Adobe Premier to make some adjusts and exported to media encoder to create the video and finally use a youtube plugin (360 video metadata) to make it like 360 video render.” – Luis Vieyra of KRE Group LLC
