Share 3D Views and 360° 3D Panoramas to Facebook

Let’s start with Facebook. You can share both the 3D views and 360° 3D panoramas, with panoramas providing a better look at the interior, which is more exciting to observe.

In Live Home 3D for iOS / iPadOS, choose “Export > Share > 3D View / 3D View 360° panorama” and select “Facebook” among sharing options. You will automatically be directed to the Facebook post or story editing mode, and it will be ready in minutes.

Share Video Walkthroughs to YouTube

There are multiple advantages to sharing video walkthroughs, and YouTube, with its 2 billion users, is just the right platform for doing this. This type of media is much more informative and impressive than still images, and the good thing is that posting videos on YouTube is really simple in Live Home 3D.

First, like you would do to shoot any video walkthrough, you need to set up a movie track and adjust the camera view. Once you are satisfied with the walkthrough, simply share it to YouTube following the instructions below. You may find these videos describing the video walkthrough creation process helpful.

In the Mac version, once you have set up a movie track, click the Share button and choose YouTube. Here is the screenshot illustrating the process.
