Panorama View vs. 3D View
Panorama and 3D are the two views available in the Scan View. Panorama View lets you see the scan as a 360 degree photograph from one viewpoint. 3D View enables you to actually change the point of view from which you are looking at the scan. For example, you can move away from the center of the scan, turn around and look past it.
The 3D View shows individual scans in 3D, without any preprocessing. Depending on your hardware, the 3D View might not be available.
Note: If the 3D View is not available or does not work correctly, check to ensure that your graphics card driver has the most current version.
