Creating Shimmer Views
Whether you're a retailer, designer, textiles platform, VFX studio, or hobbyist, creating your own Shimmer View takes 3 basic steps:
- Scan your material by taking photos with a handheld camera
- Upload your photos to our web app for processing
- Publish or download your Shimmer View files
To scan your material, take a handful of photos of the material from a series of different angles, using a camera with a flash.
After uploading your photos, we process them and show you the resulting Shimmer View. You can adjust the appearance to your liking with our built-in editor.
Once you're happy with the result, you can purchase the Shimmer View and embed it in your retail site, just like embedding a YouTube video. Or, you can download the textures for your tiling or CAD workflows.
