Most of you already know that 360 Cloud Rendering will allow you to create a 360 degree panoramic view directly from Revit. But did you know that you can download and view that interactive panorama offline?
In Revit 2013, Render in Cloud is on the View panel. If you have lots of 3D views it can take a while to load the first dialog.
Obviously, make sure you choose Interactive Panorama. Use ‘Advanced’ Exposure (this may allow for more flexibility later). Note: Set your DPI before choosing ‘Interactive’. Small will match the views crop dimensions.
Once you have started the Render, it can take a long time to upload the data, but you will get an email telling you when it is ready.
Are you getting tired of using the same RPC people and trees in all your Revit renders? Maybe you should try adding some of these free trees and people in your render post-editing program (such as Photoshop):
