The GearVR JPG can be used for all sorts of other purposes but you often need to re-organise the sides of the cubes on the JPG (e.g. via a recorded Action
in Adobe Photoshop
In the commercial users' forum (which is hidden from you until you register a Lumion license), some of our users have used the stereoscopic GearVR
JPG file in a variety of 3rd party software (for example IrisVR) to generate a 3D (stereoscopic) panorama for Google Cardboard
It's also possible to use a stereoscopic or non-stereoscopic GearVR JPG file with software such as InsiteVR
to generate a 2D or 3D (stereoscopic) panorama for internet browsers, phones and Samsung GearVR (
to see a tutorial video for the Lumion-to-InsiteVR procedure).
And lastly, there's of course also the regular non-stereoscopic MyLumion
panoramas. They work on a variety of devices including Macs, PCs, phones and tablets and you can click here
to see how it works as well as a few examples.
Regarding the VR output formats in Lumion, I should mention that we have only tested Oculus Rift
and Samsung GearVR
headsets, so we can't claim that any other applications are supported, but as you can see above our users obviously test all sorts of apps and combinations
If you'd like to test the panorama functionality, you're welcome to request a fully functional 7-day Trial
version of Lumion Pro 6.3 via your local Lumion reseller
Feel free to share your results!
