What an awesome find and post. Thank you for sharing this!


Is there going to be educational licenses that will be able to use this feature for free after march 31st?


If I have autodesk 360 on my pc, do I need to download autodesk A360 to use this stuff? And if so where is the download button for A 360 as opposed to 360 which I already have


great nwes from you people really apriciate the love for design.

Alison Geering-Kline, Autodesk

Hi Terry, thanks for your question. Autodesk A360 is just the new name for Autodesk 360. You should just be able to make an account on our Rendering Gallery portal and view your renderings there in the ‘My Renderings’ tab. From there, you can choose the “Render as Stereo Panorama” option. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Alison Geering-Kline, Autodesk

Hi TC. Yes, all types of rendering will continue to be free for educational users.


Any way to make this work with my Oculus Rift?

Mark Thurnauer

I am excited to give this a try, but one thing I don't quite understand is that the instructions above indicate how to preview the 3d stereo panorama, but what do you do with the finished rendering? I have downloaded the finished jpeg images. Do I load the jpeps on my phone and use a certain app to view them?


Mark - After you render, you to My Renderings, https://rendering.360.autodesk.com/mygallery.aspx and click on your thumbnail. At the bottom of the preview, you will see "Preview on your phone". Once you check that box, a URL is generated. Load the link on your mobile phone browser to view.

Alison Geering-Kline, Autodesk

The finished rendering is what you view on your mobile phone with the Virtual Reality Cardboard viewer. The URL allows you to load and "Preview" (or simply, view) your final rendering on your mobile device, and is a final rendering.

The jpegs can only be used if you are able to build a more advanced web viewer that can load them. We'll be publishing a technical blog on this process at a later date. Stay tuned!


Thought I would share this. If you have an iPhone with iOS 7.1.2 or earlier, you will need to update to iOS 8. WebGL was enabled in iOS 8.


Is the app available to customize? I'd like to add music and be able to scroll through different renderings to show before/after comparisons.

Thanks for staying on the cutting edge!


Does anyone know about linking panoramas so as to form a walkthrough effect?

Alison Geering-Kline, Autodesk

Barbara and Nerd, we don't have those features at this time, but we will let you know when new features are added for the stereo panorama renderings. Thanks!


I would love to download the images and use with an app instead of through the website. Anyone know any apps that work on the iphone?


How come you can't re-render a panoramic to be stereoscopic? Why am I re-rendering a still?

Alison Geering-Kline, Autodesk

Christine- there is a technical blog coming that will outline more options like this. It will give a walk-through of how to download the image, cut it up into left and right eye, and feed it into an oculus rift player.

Mark- all panoramas, whether they are mono or stereo, need to be rendered from the original image. If you rendered a mono-panorama from the Revit plugin, we suggest rendering a small/fast regular image first, instead of a panorama directly, then going to the portal and rendering a stereo-panorama from that small/fast image.

Hi Alison,

Is there something wrong with the help link and the URL generator? My rendering is complete and I'm eager to use my new goggles; but the Preview is cycling endlessly and not producing an address...


I am having the same problem as Harvey, every time I have tried to generate the URL for the past three days it just loops forever...

Alison Geering-Kline, Autodesk

Hi Robyn,
Harvey’s problem was solved with a re-render. Can you try a re-render and see if that helps? If it doesn't resolve the issue, please send us an email at [email protected] with your AutodeskID or email so we can debug it further.


Hi Alison,

Will the URLs for our stereoscopic panoramas still work for sharing with others (for example, via posting in emails or on website) after the Mar. 31 date ending the free rendering period?

I guess I am wondering if the plan is for all these URLs to be permanent?

Alison Geering-Kline, Autodesk

Hi Robin - Yes, the URLs for sharing stereo panoramas will be permanent.


Ive set up and rendered a stereo panorama through the cloud but when i go to the options for download, there is no option for a link to send to my phone. any help?

Alison Geering-Kline, Autodesk

Corey- Currently, there is only an option to generate a URL for your rendering, which you can email to yourself to view on your phone or tablet.
