Overview

Faro Zone 3D 2019 allows you to create panoramic 360° images and video without leaving the program. 

Panoramic Images

You can create 360° panoramic images by using the Total View toolbar.

  1. Navigate to the point on the project grid where you would like the image to be centered.
  2. Click the Animation tab.
  3. Click the Total View icon .
  4. Click the 360° Image icon .
  5. Name the image, and click Save to save the file.

Viewing a Panoramic Image

View a panoramic image by clicking the viewer icon in the Total View toolbar.

  1. Click the Animation tab.
  2. Click the Total View icon .
  3. Click the Pano Image Viewer icon .
  4. Select the image to view, and click Open.
  5. The image appears in a separate window.
  6. Click and drag in the window to rotate the camera.

Panoramic Videos

You can create 360° panoramic videos by using the Total View toolbar.

  1. Navigate to the point on the project grid where you would like the video to be centered.
  2. Click the Animation tab.
  3. Click the Total View icon .
  4. Click the 360° Video icon , and the software will render the video.
  5. When the video is rendered, name the video file and choose a directory for the mp4.

Injecting Metadata

When a video has been saved, you will be prompted to inject metadata so the video can be viewed correctly. This will create a copy of the video file. Note: The original video file will remain and display all 360° of the video in one flat image.

  1. When the video is saved, you will be prompted to inject metadata in the Spatial Media Metadata Injector window.
  2. Click Open and choose the video you recently saved.
  3. Check the My video is spherical (360) box and click Inject metadata.
  4. Choose a directory for the new file. Note: This file will have _injected added to the end of its filename by default.
  5. If you skip the metadata process and wish to inject it later, you can run the Spatial Media Metadata Injector.exe. This file is typically found in the directory C:\Program Files\FARO\FARO Zone 3D\bin\. This location may change depending on your installation directory.
