    2020 Fusion launched its new 360° Panorama feature in November of last year and it is already clear that it is becoming an essential part of our customers’ sales and design process, with very large numbers of panoramas having been generated already.

    We have already seen many fantastic designs having been created in this way and would like to invite you to add links to your own via this forum post. It is also our intention to create a gallery of (fully credited) customers’ panoramas on the 2020Spaces.com website.

    If you would like to share any of your latest and greatest creations, please respond to this post with the link (URL), also referencing the manufacturer(s) used in the design.

    The 360° Panorama feature is available to all users from Version 4.4.0 onwards. If you have not yet upgraded to this version please check for application updates or contact the UK Support Team by telephone on +44 (0)1233 635533 or by email for guidance on how to upgrade and start using this fantastic new tool.

    Is it possible to change the function that automatically sends the Panorama to the client?

    Having it send as soon as you generate it could be problematic, and you would want to see the panorama  before you send it to them..

      Hi Richard ( @rjsigkits ), thanks again for your comments and contributions to this thread.

      I’m pleased to advise that Version 5.3 has just been released and it contains two 360° Panorama enhancements in direct response to your suggestions made earlier this year:

      – A new preview option, allowing you to view the 360° Panorama within Fusion before you actually publish. The preview also includes details of the email addresses to which the 360° Panorama will be sent.

      Note: the preview facility is only available when using ‘foreground processing’; it is disabled when generating 360° Panoramas in the background.

      – It is also no longer a prerequisite to have to enter both a customer and a dealer address – a 360° Panorama can now be generated with only one of these email addresses entered.

      These changes now give the designer full flexibility in terms of who they send the 360° Panoramas to and when.

      Hope you enjoy both these and many other enhancements in v5.3!

      Best regards,

      Jim

    Hi Richard – thanks for your question.

    A short-term workaround is for you to (temporarily) enter your own email address into the client field instead. Of course, it is not ideal – you will get the email twice, but at least it overcomes the problem you describe.

    In the longer-term, it could be possible to not make it a pre-requisite to enter the client’s email address in order to generate the panorama (it could offer a warning, but still generate the panorama and send it to the dealer email), or potentially a ‘preview’ option could be added within Fusion itself.

    Thanks for your thoughts – these will be noted for consideration as candidates for future versions of the software.

    Another query from me – Is it possible to download the Panoramas, please?
    Also, is it possible to upload to YouTube at all?

    Is it possible to download the Panoramas, please?

    Sorry, this is not possible, they are stored in a secure server location which is not accessible to end users. Of course, you can share the URL to allow others to view the output.

    Also, is it possible to upload to YouTube at all?

    I am not sure that this is the ideal medium for YouTube given the YouTube is typically used for movie/pre-recorded material. If you wanted to exploit YouTube, you would be better served generating a 2020 Fusion movie (View Ribbon, Movies Panel) – the resulting .mov file could indeed be uploaded and viewed.

    I agree with Richard’s point above.  Sending the Panorama automatically is really not desirable.  I wouldn’t want a normal Perspective or a quote from a Report to be sent automatically; the same applies to a Panorama.  Can Fusion look into this sooner rather than later?  The workaround is a temporary solution, but a ‘clunky’ one.

    Good Morning

    Are there any system requirements to produce 360 Panoramas?

    Thanks

    Hi Emma,

    Thanks for your question. There are no changes to the existing system requirements following the introduction of this feature.

    You will find that the panorama generation process itself will take longer than a standard render, as (internally) it is actually producing six independent renders (one facing above, one facing below, one facing forwards, one facing backwards, one facing to the left and one facing to the right) which are then merged together to produce the full panoramic effect.

    Hope this helps – please do share any of your creations – we would really love to see them.

    Hi Emma – it could be a firewall/trusted sites issue. If you work for a larger organisation with a dedicated IT person, it might be necessary to arrange for the 2020 site generating the panoramas/emails to be given the correct access rights by your firewall.

    Please contact the 2020 Support Team to confirm your symptoms and to receive further guidance on how to resolve the issue.

    @justinschlenger- I copied your post to the 360 thread in the 2020 Design  forum. Nice job BTW!

    @rjsigkits – Firstly, that video is excellent! Secondly, thanks for the forum feedback. We’re always looking to improve and we’ll check out some options for ‘liking’. 🙂

    And thirdly, the glasses that Justin used (and many other accessories) are available on 2020 Cloud. Log in with your 2020 Community credentials, select the 2020 Decorative Items catalogue and search for ‘wine’. I’ve attached a screenshot in case its helpful.

    In the most part, you really don’t need to know how to use it, as most things you’ll want will already have drawings, and all you need to do is search, find and simply download what you want, then import it into your design using Fusions built in integration. Simples 🙂

    Hi Emma,

    The Import SketchUp and Open 3D Warehouse options are indeed found on the Insert tab.

    However, these features are only available to users of the ‘Full’ 2020 Fusion edition. If you (or your employer) purchased 2020 Fusion ‘Premium’ or 2020 Fusion ‘Foundation, then SketchUp is not a licensed feature.

    However, it is possible to upgrade to the Full edition – please contact your Area Sales Manager or call the UK Office on 01233.635566 for further details.

    How come when viewing the entries in the current Fusion Panorama contest we can’t open the Panoramas?

    The thumbnail links should take you straight to the Panorama link so you can see in full effect..

    From the gallery, clicking an entry will show you a larger image view. On that image there’s a ‘View Panorama’ link at the bottom which opens the 360 in a new tab/window (see attached img).

    Nice submissions, by the way!

    Hi Jim.

    Thanks for this update – seems great in the most part. I like how it gives you the link in a pop up window.

    Are we now not able to process the panoramas in the background at all then? I couldn’t find the setting anywhere to do that…

    I’ll get used to the update, and will report my thoughts back to you.

    Hi Richard,

    Glad you like the update; yes the hyperlink in the confirmation dialog is a nice extra piece of functionality.

    Panoramas can still be generated in the background, but this is without the preview (the two are essentially mutually exclusive, as we took the view that background processing tasks should occur seamlessly without pop-ups or dialogs requiring user intervention).

    To toggle between generating 360 Panoramas using foreground processing (with preview) and background processing (without preview), you can un/check the ‘Background 360 Panorama Export (Preview Disabled)’ entry in Fusion’s ‘Options’, ‘Internet Settings’.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Although our company used this for kitchens / bathrooms for years it has been doing more and more bedroom work with it in recent times. It is my wish that a little bit more emphasis was put on to the bedroom side of things just to jazz things up a bit I must admit:)

    I had done this before while messing around with the new 360 as we only got fusion 5 put on to our new machines in the last few days. New lighting system seems much easier with me not having to put point lighters around everywhere. Although I am somewhat unsure as to why universal lighting coming from the graphic doesn’t produce shadows (or maybe I haven’t used the correct ones, like I say we only had fusion 5 for a couple of days)

    <edit> wrong 360 posted, will update tomorrow !!

    We have premium and not full version so not able to utilise the 3d warehouse stuff either sadly, and most of the 2020 cloud is purely focused on the kitchen or bathroom element.
