Design visualization just keeps reaching new heights. While renderings remain a common part of design presentation, advances in technology have made new types of media not only possible but within the reach of even small teams and firms. These newer types of media require a change in workflow. Is it worth it? For architectural exteriors, a 360-degree panorama rendering is now fairly easy to produce and gives a richer presentation than a still or around. When such a rendering is loaded by a panorama player, the viewer can navigate the scene in real time, zooming in and out and rotating the view at will. The only downside to a panorama is the rendering time for such a large image. But if a real-time renderer is used instead of an offline renderer, a panoramic image can be generated in the time it takes to save the file to disk.
