Twinmotion Cloud Overview

Overview of Twinmotion Cloud and how it works.

Windows
MacOS
Linux

Twinmotion Cloud (Early Access) offers you the ability to publish immersive and interactive Twinmotion Presentations and Panorama Sets to the web and share them with your collaborators. With Twinmotion Cloud you can share media without having to send or download large files or worry about incompatible file formats or computer performance.

With a simple click on a hyperlink or by scanning a QR code, your colleagues and clients can view and interact with Presentations and Panorama Sets in a web browser from a workstation, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

You can also embed Presentations and Panorama Sets directly into your website using the HTML embed codes available in the Twinmotion Cloud Web Drive.

The Presentations uploaded to Twinmotion Cloud are hosted on a cloud GPU instance, ensuring consistent visual fidelity and performance. As Presentations are streamed using pixel streaming, your collaborators can enjoy an immersive experience and interact with scenes in the same manner in which you navigate scenes in Twinmotion.

Twinmotion Cloud Early Access is currently available for the following web browsers and operating systems:

  • Google Chrome: Android, iOS, MacOS, Windows

  • Apple Safari: iOS, MacOS, Windows

  • Firefox: Android, iOS, MacOS, Windows

  • Microsoft Edge based on Chromium: Windows

Twinmotion Cloud is in Early Access and has some limitations. For more information, refer to the Twinmotion Cloud Early Access Limitations section on this page.

How It Works

To use Twinmotion Cloud, you must be logged in to your Epic Account.

1. Upload your Content to Twinmotion Cloud

You can upload your content to Twinmotion Cloud by using the Push to Cloud method, or by using a Presentation or a Panorama Set that you create in Twinmotion.

Method 1: Using Push to Cloud

Using Push to Cloud is a convenient way to share a quick presentation you're working on. By clicking the Push to Cloud button, the scene in Twinmotion's Viewport is uploaded to Twinmotion Cloud and becomes shareable and fully interactive via a hyperlink or a QR code.

For information on how to upload content using Push to Cloud, refer to Uploading Content to Twinmotion Cloud.

Method 2: Using Twinmotion Presentations or Panorama Sets

If you want to share several images, panoramas, and videos at the same time, you can create Presentations or Panorama Sets and upload them to Twinmotion Cloud.

  • A Presentation is a collection of media, created in Twinmotion, that can contain several images, panoramas, and videos. You can move freely through Presentations and change several viewing parameters such as the time of day and the rendering mode.

  • Panorama sets are a convenient way to share groups of 360 degree panorama viewpoints. When viewing Panorama Sets, you can seamlessly move between each panorama using hotspots. Up to 100 panoramas can be added to one Panorama Set. You can also share per-panorama hyperlinks or QR codes that open specific panoramas inside a Panorama Set.

Once a Presentation or Panorama Set is uploaded, you can update it as often as you like; the hyperlink or QR code will always provide access to the latest version.

For information on uploading and updating Presentations and Panorama Sets, refer to Uploading Content to Twinmotion Cloud.

2. Preview, Manage, and Organize Your Content on the Web Drive

Once your content is uploaded to Twinmotion Cloud, it can be accessed on the Twinmotion Cloud Web Drive where you can preview, manage, organize, and share it.

For more information about the Web Drive, refer to Twinmotion Cloud Web Drive.

3. Share Content with your Collaborators

Each Presentation and Panorama Set has its own unique shareable hyperlink, scannable QR code, and optional password. To share a Presentation, Panorama Set, or panorama, copy the link or download the QR code, and send it to your collaborators. Using the link they can view your content in their web browsers. Using the QR code, they can access and view your content from their tablets or mobile devices.

The Twinmotion Cloud Web Drive also provides unique HTML embed codes for all Presentations and Panorama Sets. You can use this code to embed Presentations and Panorama Sets directly into your website where they can be viewed in a responsive inline frame (iframe).

For more information on how to share content, refer to Sharing Content from the Web Drive.

4. View Content on a Computer, Tablet, or Mobile Device

When your collaborators click the hyperlink or scan the QR code that you provide, they can view and interact with your content from the web browsers of their computers, tablets, or mobile devices. The scenes are fully interactive and they can be navigated using a variety of inputs including keyboard, mouse, trackpad, and touchscreen gestures.

Presentations can be viewed using the Twinmotion Presentation or Twinmotion Editor navigation mode, or using the presets of other design applications that are supported in Twinmotion.

For information on viewing Presentations, refer to Viewing Presentations.

For information on viewing Panorama Sets, refer to Viewing Panorama Sets.

Twinmotion Cloud Early Access Limitations

The Twinmotion Cloud Early Access release has some limitations. These are subject to change but currently include:

  • Depending on the available cloud GPU instances, up to 100 Presentations can be viewed simultaneously. If not enough GPU instances are available, a viewing queue is formed until a GPU instance becomes available.

  • Presentation quality settings are dynamically set based on benchmark estimates during processing. Presentations are rendered at the highest level of quality (Ultra) unless a resource-intensive Presentation demands a lower rendering quality for smoother viewing performance.

  • For the best viewing experience, it is recommended to use an internet connection with a bandwidth of at least 25 Mbps.

  • Sound is not supported in Presentations and Panorama Sets.

  • The file size of Presentations that can be uploaded to Twinmotion Cloud is limited to 2 GB. This includes the file size of the Twinmotion scene and the scene assets.

  • Due to the limitations of currently available cloud GPUs, Presentations must use less than 21 GB of video memory (RAM) to be cloud-compatible. If you try to upload media that exceeds this limit, a message will appear informing you of the amount that exceeds the limit. You can reduce the amount of video memory needed by removing geometry or complex textures in the scenes.

  • When uploading content to Twinmotion Cloud or viewing content in a web browser, the Twinmotion Cloud services can be blocked by antivirus software or ad blockers. To avoid this, turn off ad blockers and validate Twinmotion in the antivirus software.

  • The size of textures in Presentations uploaded to Twinmotion Cloud is limited to 2K.

  • Presentations have two types of time limitations. Warning messages are shown as these limits are approached:

    • A Presentation cannot be opened for more than 90 minutes.

    • If you do not move in a scene or interact with a Presentation for 30 minutes, it will be disconnected due to inactivity. You can relaunch the Presentation by clicking the Reconnect button that appears in the browser window.
