Using the Light Table (Object2VR)

Object2VR - Help


Importing via the Light Table is the easiest way to import. However, if you have a large amount of images to import, you may find importing them via Select Input easier.

Object2VR's Light Table


For all the following steps, start by opening Object2VR and then click Light Table in the Input section. (A detailed description of each section of the Light Table)

Importing a Single Row Image Series[edit]

A single row project consists of images that make up multiple columns and one row.

  1. In the top section, define how many columns the images make up:

    The default is set to 1 in all fields.
  2. Click Update. This will add image placeholders in the Input Images section, which represent the amount of columns and rows the images make up.

  3. Next, add the images.
    Click Add Images, navigate to the folder that holds the images, select them all and then click Open. The images should now be in the Input Images section and correctly aligned.
    TIP: Another way to import the images is to select all the images within the folder and drag and drop them onto the first placeholder.
  4. If needed, simply move the images around to rearrange them.
    • Images can be moved, swapped and deleted. All deleted images will be placed in the Spare Images section.
    • The images can be resized to make viewing all of them easier with the Image Size slider.
  5. Click OK to return to the main project window.
