Urgent Question about WebVR format!

Post by chris15326 » Thu Aug 15, 2019 1:09 pm

Hey there!
So I got a huge problem for a demo I needed to finish for a customer tomorrow!

I wanted to present him webVR... But the output from pano2vr is just strange in terms of its image format as it seems!

First, this image format works flawless on my 5.5 inch galaxy s7 (it's from google cardboard app):

Image

This is what the pano2vr output looks like on my galaxy s7 (it seems to only show me a fragment of the whole image and I always got those black tiles):

Image

This is what the pano2vr output looks like on a 6-inch galaxy 6j+ (no black tiles and the whole image seems to be showing up) :

Image

The format comes closer to the perfect working one (from cardboard on the image 1)... but still on the last one I can't focus the headset enough to get a perfect overlap.

I got the feeling that I'm missing something very elemental here because it seems to be an image format issue.
If I could output the tour with the image format from the google cardboard app (image 1) I think it would just work perfectly! (my finished and uploaded pano2vr tour gives me the settings to switch between cardboard 2014 and 2015, non of this makes it work... but the 2015 setting makes it even worse since it seems to enhance the FOV ... and that's all I can give you from my gathered information about this)

I hope that somebody can help me out on this!

Thank you as always for your time and support.

With kind regards
Chris

Hi Chris,
We are still in beta with our WebVR and still have work todo. You can try the Cardboard output to see if that is better. Please see: https://ggnome.com/doc/pano2vr/6/output ... cardboard/

Hey Hopki! thank you as always. :-)

Can't even tell if I tried that so far (hope I didnt)!
Will check that out as soon as I'm back in front of my PC.
Beside that it sounds like there is nothing I can do or try currently?

Thanks for your time and answer

With kind regards
Chris

Hi Hopki,

I have been helping Chris with this. Every example that I have seen from either Hopki or other sources has been flawless. This makes me think that there is a configurations issue on our end.

The left side and right side of cardboard is not synchronized when playing a video. In the below screenshot you will see that the video on the wall is in two different places playing at two separate timelines.

Any suggestions?

Hi Guys,
Ahh, the cardboard output uses two instances of the player so synchronization cannot be done.
You have to use WebVR for this in 6.1 which uses the same player for both sides.
What's the issue with WebVR?
Which phone + headset combo are you using?
Regards,
Hopki

Hey!

It was a nameless VR Viewer from Amazon. (Google Cardboard demos worked perfectly fine with it)

and I tested this on two devices: the galaxy J6+ and the galaxy s7 edge

Thanks for your time and thoughts as always :- )
