Introducing PanoMoments

PanoMoments are a new creative VR medium 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. We've barely scratched the surface of the creative possibilities and can't wait to see what others will create.

The PanoMoments native app linked below provides higher performance and quality compared to the web viewer, and for the best experience, use a Google Daydream View or Gear VR headset (app coming soon). Once you have the native app installed, head over to the Featured 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.
