What are VR environments, VR tours and VR bubbles?
What's a VR tour?

interactive VR tours (1)

 

A structure that is fundamental to experiences on VRdeck are VR tours. A VR tour makes it possible to navigate in-VR through a collection of VR photos, videos or other VR media, representing different places or situations in the tour. Using Points Of Interest (POIs) a user can take different routes through the VR tour, allowing the user to experience different story lines. Examples are exploring different rooms in a house or exploring different situations in a training course.

The advantage of VR tours is that they provide a powerful means of storytelling in a simple way, making the production of VR experiences easy and fast. We will add only those features that provide the highest added value to VR tour design and experience. Example of such features are our VR-menu, interactivity using POIs and displaying dynamic data, such as product pricing, in VR.

How do I edit the VR tour credentials?

Login to your account, select the VR tour and here you can edit the credentials, make a tour protected.

Be aware, when you edit the tour credentials there’s a little hickup so please edit the name and add -2, save and then remove -2, so the url is back to the original.

What's a VR bubble? aka Sphere, 360° or Panoramic photo or video
A bubble is a 360° content item that can be a photo, video, rendering or animation. Multiple bubbles can present points of view in a VR tour.
What are Points Of Interests (POIs aka Hotspots)?

It’s possible to freely navigate to VR Bubbles whitin a VR Tour. When creating a VR Tour, Points of Interest (POIs) can be added wherever you like inside a VR Bubble. A Point of Interest can contains extra information, a picture and a button to go to another VR bubble. Points of Interest are recognized by a small circle. When aimed at it, more information about the concering Point of Interest appears. The viewer then can decide whether to travel to that next VR Bubble or not.
