4.11 preview 7 Stereo Panoramic export works! Hope this plugin gets better integration in the official release. So far , from what i've tested :1) Right eye captures from scenes with dynamic light shadows , AmbientOclution , depthshadows , skylight oclutions and AutoExposure wont display correct. 2) Frame by frame capture its not possible (at least in complex animated scenes ) . the exporter renders 1 frame each 6 or 8 frames ingame. Wich means animation will result choppy and fast . Tried to increase FPS ingame to give more time to the exporter to catch up but did not work. 3) in some cases , capture process takes more time than an actual rendering (vray)What i consider its missing so far :1) Enable - disable , Stereo or monoscopic render capture 2) Switch left - right order rendering , naming files 3) Resolution Aspect ratio setting , rendering 4096x2048 its ok for monoscopic but exceeds for stereo (should be 2048x2048 + 2048x2048) and not 4096x2048 + 4096x2048 4) Working capture frame rate and setteable !
