Introducing PanoMoments


PanoMoments are a new creative VR format that couple time and space. They’re typically captured using a rotating camera, but you can also create them by converting existing 360 video, or even animate them using your preferred drawing application. While they do work in the browser, the native app linked above provides a far superior experience. And for total immersion, use Google Daydream or Gear VR. Once you have the native app installed, check out the featured gallery inside the app and more PanoMoments in the Web Gallery.

How to Capture PanoMoments

The core PanoMoments format is comprised of an arbitrary number of frames equally spaced around a 360 degree rotation. This makes time an integral part of the PanoMoments medium and an important part of the creative process. On this site you'll find a capture guide focused on the rotational camera capture method (other guides are coming soon). This method is prefered over converting 360 video because it's entirely stitchless, allows you to easily compose shots, and provides depth perception through motion parallax. In the capture guide you'll also find recommendations on equipment, and an uploader for creating your own PanoMoments. If you’re interested in learning more, take a look through the examples and capture guide in the following sections, and feel free to reach out to us via email or on our forums.
