What's the logical successor to the QTVR Object Movie?
20 years ago I was playing around with object movies, and I made a few by objects on a home-made turntable.
You'll need to download and view this on a Mac in the the QT Player 7, as modern browsers won't render it. VLC Player will "play" it, but as a linear movie, and not as a draggable object.
And that's the motivation for this question. If one wanted to create a 3D object from a grid of photos, that viewers can rotate and view in a modern browser, what's the best format?
It will be a series of photos, not renderings, so a modeling format won't work.
I'd like to show someone what it's like to hold a frame from a beehive, and to rotate it at various angles into the light so that you can see developing larvae, etc. I static, hi-res photo as in that last link is useful, but not sufficient, as it's easy to see eggs when the frames are perfectly photographed, but much harder in real life.
