View Full Version : Qucktime VR in Lightwave....thought it would be possible???

10 October 2004, 11:18 AM
I've created a few Quicktime VR's for a school project.....had no problems with 360 degree rotation. But I'm having problems with creating a 180 degree VR.

Is it possible??? or not???

Has anyone attempted this with success? If so, could someone please help with the settings so it runs consistantly.

Thanking you in advance.......cheers

Yes, it is possible!
From the render options panel choose "Save animation" and choose from the type menu "Quick Time VR Object". Click on options and there you can define the angle and all.

What problems are you having?

I just tried it for 0-180 here with no probs, but if setting the max rotation to 180 isn't working properly for you, then you could set it to 360, and cheat. See all QtVR does is play a series of frames when you move the mouse. It doesn't know what those frames are, so you can create a 180 degree rotation of your scene or object, then tell the QtVR saver that frame range is 360 and the resulting movie will be the same...
