Hi crew,
I am trying to catch up from version 8.1 to 23. When I render a spherical camera it produces a jpeg image. How do I convert that to QuickTime vr or a format YouTube or chrome can use? They can't process the jpeg as is.

Panoramic photo could be made with Pano2QTVR, this is free software that will allow you to generate panoramas in .MOV format. The generation of the .MOV video file will be one more step where you will have the possibility to configure the .MOV output file. Comparing the result with the PTviewer display, I find that for this example, the quality looks better with PTviewer but the distortion seems more acceptable with Pano2QTVR

I would say that BIMx is what you want to look into.
It is included with Archicad for making 3D navigable files.
These files can be viewed on desktop or mobile devices by anyone that downloads the appropriate program or app (free).
Or there is a web viewer that requires no downloads at all.
