3DStudio camera height in rendered 360 images

Hi,

We use Krpano to create virtual tours in unbuilt apartments using 3DStudio MAX. When rendering we are struggling a bit with finding a nice camera height - we have used 120cm so far, but in VR it feels a bit low. We did some testing with 140 and 160, but due to the field of view in VR, it feels rather high - or at leas, the distance from my eyes down to close objects feel way too long.

Does anybody have any thoughts on what would be the perfect height to set a camera to get a realistic view in VR ? On regular screens adjusting the maxfov works quite well to combat this feeling.

For me it depends on the mood you are going for.... I never go above 152cm because then it starts to become unrealistic. 130cm to 140cm is great - it creates a more intimate feel and also gives you a nice array of objects right in your field of vision for the 3D stereoscopic effect.

Also, are you using V-Ray?

Thanks for the input - we went with 140mm this time - so we'll see how that works out - yes, we use V-Ray. You can see one we did at 120mm here: http://www.oxivisuals.no/clients/selvaag…nporten/vr-146/

We rendered at 8000x4000 pixels, not sure about the rendertime, but 8-10 hours per frame or so...we use IR/LC.

Great interior tour. You don't appear to have any distortion on the camera. What focal length did you use for each render? 35mm?
