Live Home 3D for iOS Tutorials – Creating Videos


In this video, we’ll discuss setting up a movie track and using it to export a walkthrough of a new home. Before we export a video, we need to create a movie track to let the program know the correct path of movement as well as the perspectives from which we wish to display our interior. Although this can be done from start to finish, both in 2D and 3D, it’s best to set up the original path in 2D and then use the 3D view to fine-tune our views. So, let’s get started by tapping the Movie Track button in the Auxiliaries section of the tools panel. Then, let’s jump to our floor plan and tap and hold on the point where we want our track to start and drag the finger to aim our camera. So, let’s go through it and then add the rest. To create the last camera and end our movie track we just tap Complete. Know that if you need to add a new camera later on, we can do that by tapping and holding an existing one and choosing to add it before or after in the context menu. Another thing we need to do in 2D is to adjust our trajectory. We can do that using the handles located next to each camera. So, let’s switch over to the 3D view to fine-tune our cameras. In 3D, we need to open the cameras Properties tab at the Inspector and expand the list of cameras in a movie track. When we tap on any camera in the list, our perspective changes and a translucent icon appears at the top right corner of the 3D view. And, what that means is that we’re editing the camera viewpoint instead of just navigating through our interior. So, by using the 3D walk controls, gestures or the controls in the camera settings, we can change the view, angle and position of our camera. Do that for each camera of your movie track, but don’t forget to glance back at the 2D view when you’re done, because the path of trajectory may change when editing in 3D. Once we’ve tuned everything up we’re ready to record a video. To do that, we need to open the main menu, tap Export / Share and choose the type of video we want to record. The available types of recorded video include: standard video, stereo video, 360º video and stereo 3D 360º video. We’ll choose standard Video and proceed to a dialog which allows to select the appropriate movie track and set a video quality. By clicking Share button we start recording a video. At the end of the process the standard dialog will ask where you want to save a file. So, this is the final result. Looks pretty good to me. Exporting 3D walk-throughs is just that easy in Live Home 3D. So, why don’t you go ahead and close the screencast and get started yourself.
