I work here
Renders will be used :-)

But there is some investigating going on how to do it.
Right now, not every model uses material renders, so we need to figure out how to handle this stuff best (likely showing the ugly grey render instead for those models)


Kind regards,

Maybe, animated gif of rotated model from your 3D image viewer?

Not a big fan of the .gif approach. Gif files are unnecessarily computationally heavy and will affect page load times for users with less-than-awesome connection speed. There's already a rotating model available in the product images.

I do like the "plain ugly gray model" approach. I could also see the render switching to the material render of the currently selected material swatch in real time. If I recall correctly from my poking around in the product page html/javascript, that's already stored as a retrievable value somewhere. Should be a matter of some copy-paste work and changing the size parameter.

In this case I would prefer the automatic creating mini-versions (100x100 as example) renders by SW render-machine in any case (just if designer had disable it in account).
