Reversed Panorama?
show user profile  FarizHilman
Is there a way to render an animation or just an object as a panorama but instead the object is being rotated 360?

I'm not sure I quite understand you 100%...:

You could simply parent a camera to your object, and then put a 360 degree rotation animation on the camera, and wherever you move the object the camera will follow. Or if you want a panorama, set the camera to a 360 degree camera or spherical option (depending on what renderer you are using)

If that doesn't answer your question, maybe you can rephrase the question? -

For example I have a cylinder without caps, if I cut the back of the cylinder and open it, I'd get a rectangle right? In this case, the cylinder is my object and the rectangle is the image of the final render I'm trying to get. So it's like a panorama circling the object.

I'm really sorry, English isn't my first language and I have terrible explaining skills, If I know how to link videos I'd try to explain the question with a video, hahaha.

i think what he is saying is he wants the panorama camera to center around the cylinder and rotate around it rather than rotating around its central axis.

kind of like if the camera target was aligned to the cylinder center and then the camera was rotated 360 around the target to capture a single image.

Im sure this can be done i remember seeing a script somewhere that rendered out 1px wide slices for each frame in an animation and when they were stitched together it made one image. perhaps you could start there? I guess you want to see all sides of an object in one image?
