Finally! Here we are to teach you on how to create a 360 tour! Excited? Great!
Let’s get started!
- Open the DocuSketch app on your mobile device. Remember, you would have to be logged into the app first before connecting to the camera.
- Next, click on the NEW button located on the upper right corner of the main dashboard.
- Give the project a name. Attaching a front view photo of for the tour makes this photo the thumbnail image of the tour. Still wide shots are most recommended.
- Key-In the Camera Height. Note that this is important for measurement accuracy (TIP: setup the tripod to the same height each time so this becomes the same number for every shoot). Check the Pre-Shoot Set-Up topic on this lesson to know more.
- Keying in the address is optional but necessary when you order sketches for this property. The address can only be seen internally by you.
- Tap on “Done” when finished.
- Tap on Add Room to add a new room or area.
- This should navigate you to the Area/Room Information Screen as shown below.
Now before you take the shot guys, let’s talk about some Pre-Shoot Process tips first. We will also have to discuss some terminologies.
- Quick Capture – This method of taking photos allows you to operate each lens on the camera separately. This allows you to take photos from one side, then the other independently. More on this will be discussed on the topics below.
- Single Shot – This method of taking photos happens when you switch the Quick Capture option off. This makes both lenses on the camera capture the image simultaneously. We will touch more on this on the topics below.
- HDR – High Dynamic Range shots takes several shots of the room to brighten the overall images as well as providing image clarity. More details on this on the topics below.
- Comment – These are information bubbles you can put in your tour, mainly in a specific area of the 3D image to provide additional details, documentation or emphasis. These details can be done in still pictures, text, PDF files or videos.
Great! Now let’s go through the following topics below:
