How to create 360 panoramic images using a 360-degree camera?
To capture panoramic images using a 360-degree camera, we recommend you to get a 360-degree camera called 'Ricoh theta'. At this point, our Quicksite 3D App is compatible only with the Ricoh Theta series including Ricoh theta SC, V, and Z1.
If you own a 360-degree camera, there are 2 workflows you can choose from when you create a VR tour.
Using only your preferred 360-degree camera, capture 360 panoramic images of the interior in the property. Some 360-degree cameras such as Ricoh Theta come with the self-timer function. Be sure to use the self-timer function so that you can avoid appearing in the scene. We recommend that you shoot with a professional tripod to ensure the quality of the image.
After capturing the 360 panoramic images, you can transfer them to your desktop and use YouVR Tour Creator to create a VR tour.
Use this method to create a VR tour when you have a limited time in the property. Click here to find out more.
By connecting the YouVR Quicksite 3D app to a 360-degree camera, you can capture 360 panoramic images and connect the scenes (360 panoramic images) together to create a VR tour on your smartphone.
One of the benefits of this workflow is that you can check the quality of the images and the tour before leaving the property. Click here to find out more.
