maxVR.qt 2.0 is a 3ds Max (2008-13) and 3ds Max Design (2009-13) plug-in that lets you easily create QuickTime MOV files for the web or CD-ROM.  maxVR.qt uses the latest QuickTime technologyies, licensed and distributed by Apple, to create QuickTimeVR panorama files or Object QuickTimeVR MOV files.

Panorama QuickTimeVR MOV files enable you to present a 3D scene in realtime one even very "old" computers. Panoramic renderings are usually used for interior views of complex 3D scenes. A 3D look is faked by mapping the panoramic rendering onto a simple sphere and allowing the user to move a virtual camera. The user may look all around and see every single detail of the 3D objects in a scene. The MaxVR.qt 2.0 plug-in automatically creates such panoramic renderings by using any of the available 3ds max/Design rendering methods. All spherical pre-distortion and pre- calculations are done by the plug-in without any user interaction. Any possible 3ds Max/Design image resolution may be used to create even the highest quality MOV files.

3ds Max is able to handle MOV files to create still images or animation (AVI files). However, 3ds Max cannot create QuickTimeVR panorama files or Object QuickTimeVR MOV files. For the first time, maxVR.qt offers full support under 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design (VIZ) for Apple's QuickTime file format.
