Convert spins to videos

Sirv makes it easy to create videos from your interactive 360-degree product spins. It generates MP4 videos, which can be played on most devices and shared online.

Change video speed

To increase or decrease the video rotation speed, change the “Autospin” value. Right-click the spin and choose “Customize”, then adjust the number of milliseconds (ms) per rotation:

The default speed is 3600 milliseconds (3.6 seconds) for one full rotation. A higher value will slow it down, a lower value will speed it up.

Conversion via API

You can also convert spins to videos via the Sirv REST API. This lets you fully automate video creation and downloading - ideal if you're building an app or integrating Sirv into your workflow.

REST API method: v2/files/spin2video

API conversion limit

There's an API limit on the number of spin to video conversions per hour:

  • Enterprise accounts: 400 per hour
  • Business accounts: 200 per hour
  • Free accounts: 20 per hour

If you need a higher limit, ask us about Sirv's pre-processing API with higher limits and other benefits.
