  • Combining 360 Photography with 360 Degree Video

    Posted by Bradford Gyselman on July 13, 2023 at 8:18 pm

    Hi there! I’m wondering if anyone has some experience creating virtual tours where each hub/location is a standard 360 degree photo with clickable hot spots, but instead of the usual faux-3D transition effect for moving around, using 360 videos to transition from one photo to another (the beginning and end of the 360 degree video being shot to match the previous static photo in the first frame, and new photo in the last frame. For example, imagine standing outside a building in a 360 degree photo, and the door is clickable. If you click the door hotspot, instead of just a “zoom” effect into the building, the 360 degree photo is briefly replaced with a 360 degree video that takes the user through the door, into the next photo within the foyer. There are tons of tools out there to pick from for virtual tours, and I’ve used a few, but I’ve yet to find one that allows for this without what I imagine is a bunch of custom coding. Any advice, fellow creatives?

    Explore WebVR frameworks like A-Frame, which enables the creation of immersive virtual reality experiences using. A-Frame supports 360-degree images and videos, and with some customization, you can achieve the transitions you want.

    Use 360 video editing software to create the transitions offline before integrating them into the virtual tour. Software like Adobe Premiere Pro or Kolor Autopano Video Pro allows you to stitch 360-degree videos together and customize transitions.
