3D View

You can create a 3D View of any object - you are only limited by size of your photo setup. Jewelry, accessories, toys, bags, shoes, clothes, etc.

3D View for apparel

Ideal for display of clothing and accessories on a model/mannequin. Use 3D View to shoot static 3D looks as well as in motion - for instance, to show certain features like opening a secret pocket or demonstrating luxurious printed coat lining.

Where to start?

To begin with, you need to be clear on whether you want to shoot the images yourself or entrust that to a professional photographer. Assess your capabilities – you will need to record a video of the object rotating around its axis. If you know how to take pictures on a white background and you have a turntable or plan on buying one, you can do it yourself. Alternatively, you can send a request on our website (Find the photographer), and our partners will assist you.

How it Works


Step 1. Photo equipment for your own studio


When making a 3D View of a product, your camera does not move around the product. Instead, it is mounted on a tripod and takes a video while your product is being rotated on a turntable.

Turntable

You can use this turntable to rotate a small object: Turnspro Timelapse Camera Mount – link to Amazon / link to B&H   and Vello MPH-P8 plate – link to B&H

Here is a simple turntable from Arqspin for medium and large objects/humans, but you can buy any motorized turntable and use it with our software – link to amazon.com

It is important to center your product – if your product isn’t placed in the center of the turntable, it may appear to move unsteadily when spun. In case your turntable rotates counter-clockwise, you can choose Reverse Rotation in the software and change the direction of rotation. Clockwise rotation is selected by default.

Your task is to shoot a video of your object being rotated. The software will use this video to create a 3D view of the object. You need to shoot a full turn and a half. If you use a Canon, please just press the Start button; as soon as the object has been rotated a full turn and a half, please press the Stop button.

Please make sure that the turntable is rotating evenly. The optimal speed for a full turn is from 30 seconds up to one minute. Many cameras cannot provide good picture quality if an object is rotated faster. We recommend that you record several test videos where the turntable is spinning at different speeds and then choose the optimal one.

Camera

You can probably use any photo camera that has the video mode. You need to record a video with 360-degree rotation using your photo camera and open it from the software.

Recommended camera settings:
• Manual exposure
• Frame rate: 30
• Aperture: F8.0
• Shutter speed: 1/30 sec
• ISO: 100
• White Balance: Auto (depends on your lighting and camera)
• Image stabilization: Off

Using a high ISO value might make your images look noisy. However, using a low ISO value will keep your images looking nice. What is more important: the color of the background should be as white as possible. You can change aperture, shutter or ISO values to make the background closer to white, and your results will depend on the lighting in your studio.

Lights & Light box

You should have continuous lights and a white background to record the video. Paper background is preferable.
If you are not sure what lighting equipment to buy, you can try to buy a light box where everything is included.
