The Panorama Mode in Lumion 6.5.1, allows you to create VR renders – a capability first introduced in Lumion 6.3. The process of creating the renders involves first selecting the locations that you’d like to render. The short video below shows you how.

Above: Rendering Panorama locations as VR outputs

When you render multiple locations in your scene to a VR output, each of these will be viewable on your compatible Samsung phone, through your GearVR. But maybe you want to show these in a specific order to your client. That’s easy! You can arrange GearVR images so they appear in a pre-determined sequence just by following these 3 steps:

1) Rename your images by adding a number to them e.g. 01_Name.jpg, 02_Name.jpg etc. You can also use the same naming scheme for each location in Lumion, before starting to render them.

2) Place them in a sub-folder in the 360Photos folder on your GearVR-compatible Samsung phone.

3) Cycle through the panoramas with the touchpad on the right side of the Samsung GearVR headset.
