Tutorial: 360° VRay for SketchUp Rendering

There are a lot of creative ways you can use SketchUp for your 3D presentations or projects. Did you know that you can also create 360-degree walkthroughs using Vray for SketchUp? I made this tutorial into 2 parts. The first one is . . .

How to Make a 360 Degree Spherical Render in Vray for Sketchup

Step 1: Go to Vray Render Options

Edit the Camera settings. Set the Type to Spherical and the FOV (field of view) to 360. Make sure that the Physical Camera is Unchecked for the scene to be rendered in 360 degrees and not in the default FOV.

Step 2: Set the GI Color of your Environment to 0.0

Or else your scene will be rendered with too much brightness (don't ask me 'coz I also don't know why).

Step 3: Set your Output to 2:1

This is for Vray to capture the whole panoramic view of your scene.

Step 4: Render

Now that we're done with the settings, click on the Render button and our 3D visualization should look something like this. Click on the button for a sneak peek of the virtual tour.
