Easy Way To Create 360 Degree Animations Of Products

You Spin 360 and youspin.co appears to be out of business. So we have removed the links from this page. It was an interesting app, but is no longer. We have no further information about this company or app. The following article is only for archival purposes.

Using just a smartphone, laptop or standard camera, you can easily make interactive animations like those below.

The subject can be a tabletop product, a person, or a car. The product can be rotated on a turntable or the camera can walk around the subject shooting as you go. If shooting a person, the app will even cue you to turn. All it takes is a smart phone (laptop or standard camera) and an easy-to-use app called YouSpin.

The lite version works great. If you want to do this as a business service, you may want the pro version. Both use the new HTML5 standards. As you probably know, HTML5 is the future of mobile browsing because it’s powerful and lightweight. Flash is on its way out.

The video below describes the process more.

You’ll want to take 8 or more shots. The more shots you take, the smoother the rotation. After you shoot, the photos are assembled almost instantly and then you can upload to your account at YouSpin or Facebook. From there you can embed the interactive 360 image into web pages.

You can also do panoramas with the Youspin app, in fact you can do 360 photography of anything.
