360 degree image rotation on website - want to add this functionallity
Posted on 2014-12-16
We have a client who sells historic art (mini statues and other artefacts). They want to add to their website the ability to add 360 degree rotation of the objects they want to sell.
Their current website designers have said “in order for this to work, you would need to take 70 photographs of each item, on a turntable with a fixed camera”
But this seems excessive and the amount of data per image seems immense. I would have thought there would have been other ways of achieving this?
I think my client is prepared there is some work in preparing the image, but we are hoping it's some thing that can be achieved once the process is in place.
I think the capability might be out of the normal remit of the web designers so they are trying to put us off. By my client has seen the same thing on other websites in his field.
Can anyone provide any insights into how one would achieve this?
Thanks in advance.
