GearVR tours

It has been suggested I pop over onto this forum to see if there are any commercial offerings for creating stereo-panorama tours using the GearVR. I am generating the content etc, but the only way I can get stereo panoramic tours on the GearVR is using ORBX which is both tricky and limiting.

Anyone working on something that would work?

VR Tourviewer shows Pano2VR tours on Gear VR : https://www.vrtourviewer.com
With the use of the Gear VR extra sensors and low latency of the Unity implementation, this results in a much better experience than with the webview/browser workaround.

It currently supports 2D and 3D online and offline (from sdcard/phone) tours that have been generated with Pano2VR. It handles tour functionality like navigation from node to node using hotspots; lensflares; surround audio; image, video and text overlays and popups.

The offline 'Storage' (no internet connection needed) menu indexes up to 9 tours from your device and shows previews to choose a tour to show.
A 'Featured' section shows tours shared by/with the community.

The free version of VR Tourviewer for Gear VR & Oculus Go can be downloaded here: https://www.vrtourviewer.com/download/

A whitelabel (bespoke) version can already be ordered for the offline 'Storage' section. Impress your clients! Use your own business or project logo, app name, splash screen, launcher icon, hotspot colors and even your own panorama for the background of the menu area. It's possible to automatically start a tour on startup without using the menu area, and use a soundtrack/music to play uninterupted during the entire tour.
Pricing is currently € 300 for this customization package. No subscription or monthly fees!

I am testing now only the best results on panorama 3d, not tours yet, just 3d panoramas and orbx is a detail eraser.

I get much sharp images on Photos360

I started a thread on Gear VR Oculus , https://forums.oculus.com/community/dis ... rvr#latest

Another version has been released, with feature additions like:
- support for overlay images and video, like in this example: https://ggnome.com/samples/pano2vr_5/blacksmith
- support for hotspot popup images, videos and text
- 3D scenery effects: snow, rain and leaves

This version can be branded and customized for your business: use your own launch icon, splash screen, hotspot colors and even a custom panorama for the menu area can be used.

The VR Remote Tourviewer for Windows has been released too, to be able to see what a GearVR user is seeing on a laptop or big screen. With normal screencasting applications, a videostream of the screen has to be transmitted. Due to the high CPU/GPU and traffic intensity of this technique, this results in lag in both the VR experience and the casted result. I strongly advise not to use such apps to avoid ruining the VR experience.

With VR Remote Tourviewer this has been solved by running an identical (non-VR) tour on the Windows computer, and only synchronizing the camera movement and user clicks. This results in a very high quality, low latency, synchronized view of the tour on a big screen, fullscreen ie: without the 'binoculor vision' of a screen casting app.

If you're interested in trying this yourself, please contact me at info@vrtourviewer.com
