SOFTWARE USED:

Object2VR for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux is an application to create multi row object movies with features such as customizable skins and auto-rotation. You can output your object movies in FLASH and HTML5 formats for viewing on the latest devices including the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. See a sample HTML5 movie here

TECHNIQUE

The turntable was placed on a photographic table with a white backdrop, curved to continue underneath the turntable.

A white background was required for this shoot, this was as simple as placing the white stretch cover on top of the turntable, and then placing the product to be photographed on top aligned with the centre of the turntable.

The lighting was adjusted to minimise the requirement for any cut outs or retouching where any shadow may appear from the turntable / cover - this was set after a few test shots.

36 images were then shot at 10 degree intervals.

The images were then adjusted as a batch to crop and also remove any last signs of shadow from the white covering on the turntable.

The resulting images were then dropped into the Object2Vr software, with FLASH selected as the output type (HTML5 is also available as an output option).

Done!

They say a picture tells a thousand words - how many thousands more could an animated 360 degree view say? For product sales, adding a 360 view is a MUST.

The resulting movie can be seen alongside, along with thumbnails of the individual shots.

HARDWARE USED:

New 10" 360 degree object movie photographic turntable kit with precision click-stop rotator base and 4 strech fit covers (Red, Blue, White, Black)

Easy set-up - the rotator base allows a choice from a complete set of 12 different 'click stop' interval options:

Stops around (number of photos per full 360 revolution) = 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 24, 30, 36, 48 (Degrees = 90, 60, 45, 36, 30, 24, 20, 18, 15, 12, 10, 7.5)

Stretch covers can quickly be swapped for easy cut-outs and keying out backgrounds.

Turntable rotator base has standard 3/8" thread with 1/4" thread insert (removeable) to allow mounting to a standard tripod / tripod mount.
