Convert a spherical render into a 360 image

Post by theunusual » Mon Jul 29, 2019 4:09 pm

Hi everyone,

We just created a tool that converts a spherical render into a 360 image. This conversion tool allows to post a 360 image render on platforms like Facebook. Just make sure when you render your images are in 2:0 ratio (for example: 4000*2000 pixels).

Here's the link: https://make360.tmprly.com/

I hope this is useful for someone!

welcome, theunusual!

Thanks for the information. We will look into your new tool!

Without any tools, one can post a 360 Spherical render to Facebook like this:
Now that I have rendered a spherical equirectangular image with Twilight Render V2.0. How can I upload it to Facebook?
Or does it have to be mapped differently?

It has to be an equirectangular panorama 1:2, then change the exif data to: CAMERA: RICOH and CAMERAMODEL: RICOH THETA S, then upload the image and Facebook automaticaly recognizes the pano.

Change this EXIF data using Windows Explorer - select an image and right-click and choose>Properties>Details Tab scroll down to click in any field and change the data.

One may also create a 360 Video animation using Twilight Render:

Thanks - that video looks great!

As for the 360 images, I did try the technique you mentioned, turns out I tried that with a different ratio..

Ah well - the tool still makes it a bit easier. :)

How about non-facebook web pages? Is it the same process?
