@Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) hi, can you drop in to irc, \cube maps seems something that people struggle with some times, having the functions automated sounds like a good idea.
Thanks

@Ulysse Martin (youle)
will this help bge/upbge?

Could you use this to form a grid and then save the cubemaps to some sort of tree?
(for game engine use?)

Static cubemap interpolation?

Thanks for submitting this addon!
Just want to mention: We are using this addon in production since one year. It works perfectly to generate cubemaps for VR scenes, both monoscopic and stereoscopic. Especially in game engines like Unity it is great to have all the 6/12 sides of the cube separately (at least in our workflow). However, in some situations it is useful to combine them to one single very long strip of the 6/12 sides. For that situation I am using ImageMagick with this command:
convert EAST_0001_R.jpg WEST_0001_R.jpg ZENITH_0001_R.jpg NADIR_0001_R.jpg NORTH_0001_R.jpg SOUTH_0001_R.jpg EAST_0001_L.jpg WEST_0001_L.jpg ZENITH_0001_L.jpg NADIR_0001_L.jpg NORTH_0001_L.jpg SOUTH_0001_L.jpg +append output.jpg
Maybe it is possible to do this with python from within Blender?

hi, no activity here, this addon is good for addons contrib.
let me know if you wish to add.
currently realease addons is in bcon3 which is bug fix only.

For the records, I have a simplified version of the file which triggers the same occasional crash in Blender we get from the official version:

How to crash:

  • Enable the addon (Python Debug Crash)
  • Render
  • Mouse Over the Outliner

Thanks raising priority to see if we can solve quickly
