Turntable

Omniverse View version 2022.1 and up

Turntable is an interactive control too which allows an object or objects to be rotated 360 degrees in either direction. This provides a rotating view of the selected object(s) to examine how the object appears in the current lighting/environment.

Turntable

Turntable provides a 360-degree a flyover of one or more selected objects. The camera and scene controls are able to be used as the turntable is spinning, and objects may be interactively scrubbed 360 degrees - clockwise or counter-clockwise. Additionally, the turntable can play in a loop and at speeds of normal (1x), 2x, 4x, and 8x, and you can use the camera controls to dolly, move, orbit or look as the turntable spins.
