So you want to render not to a static image, but rather to /some/ output
file format that allows for free manipulation of the camera angle?


As for zooming in, that's easy: Just render a humongously large image.

As for rotating the camera around the scene, that's tricky. I think some
sites that let you see a product in 3D actually fake this feature by
technically showing a paused movie, and letting the user jog forward and
backward through the movie.
