Loading Images In Boxshot VR

Boxshot VR expects you drag and drop a sequence of files which are photos or images of the same object, made from different angles. Like if you put the object on a turning table and make photoes, while turning it. Boxshot VR expects to find numbers of frames in filenames, so your images need to be named like “image-1”, “image-2” and so on.

Such set of images is called a “row”. Your sequence may have several rows, for example if your table made several turns and each turn you moved the camera upper, to see the object from the top. In such cases Boxshot VR expects the files to be named like “image-1-1”, “image-1-2”, “image-2-1” and so on.

Boxshot VR tries very hard to guess frame numbers from your filenames and in most cases it should work well. If it doesn’t you can rename your files to something more acceptable or contact us to get this fixed in the next update.

What Happens Next

When you drop files to Boxshot VR and it sucessfully parses the names, the import window appears. It shows the list of files that Boxshot VR has parsed.

In most cases you simply click “OK” there. You may want to click the arrows between the “Row” and “Column” headers in order to swap the values. This is usefual if the column number comes first in the filenames.

After clicking “OK” you’ll see your images loaded into the application and you can continue with preview and export.

Rearranging The Grid

You can re-arrange the grid by right clicking it. The popup menu with supported grid dimensions will appear. Pick the right one to rebuild the grid. This is useful if your several-rows sequence is loaded as a single row.
