360 VR Content

I currently work in Advertising Agency & Create attractive contents for customers who want to target audience through digital marketing. Im Specially Specialized in Posters,Logos. Videos & All that. But recently i came across a 360 Degree Post such as i saw yesterday

This post is from Microsoft, but i wanted to know how to create post 360 like these. I have seen various advertising content like this as well. & then searched on google but coudnt found no clue regarding this. It would be greatful if anyone can guide me throughout the steps for creating 360 Box or spherical content like this.


Welcome to the forum.

I have an old browser, so I’m not seeing what you are seeing. But if it’s a facebook ad, it might not be a commercially available technology. Facebook has lots of proprietary technology that you can access, but not replicate.

I see nothing that makes this 360. I guess I missing something because I have a current browser and other 360 posts show up fine. they are however created with Apple for the most part.

Facebook has their own Ad platform … so as DZ mentioned no one may be privy to it.

But again, all I’m seeing is an ad … nothing special, just animated text on a background.

What are you seeing?

Ohh there might be a mistake with the link. Please check this

Im talking about this 360 VR. It would be great if you can help me suggesting the guidelines how to create content like this.

Please check below

Ok, now I understand. Here is what Facebook has to say:

A 360 photo allows you to see the photo from every angle including above, below, behind and next to you. When taking a 360 photo, the field of view will automatically be set to the middle of the photo.

You can create a 360 photo by using specific devices, apps or software:

360-Enabled Camera

Take a 360 photo using one of the following:

  • Ricoh Theta S
  • Giroptic 360 Cam
  • Samsung Gear 360
  • LG 360 Cam
  • IC Realtech ALLie
  • 360Fly
  • Panono

iPhone or iPad

Take a panorama using one of the following:

  • iPhone 4S or newer
  • iPad mini 2 or newer
  • iPad Air and iPad Air 2
  • iPad Pro

Samsung Galaxy

Take a panorama using one of the following in Surround Shot or Panorama mode:

  • Samsung Galaxy S5 or newer
  • Note 3 or newer

Photo Sphere Apps or Devices

Take a panorama using Street View, Google Camera, Cardboard Camera or Theta S.

Image-Stitching Software

Stitch images together using software like PTGui.

When you share these photos on Facebook, they’ll automatically be converted into a 360 photo.

And here is another article on how to go about getting a 360°

You need to use the camera app on your device to take a panorama photo. That’s it. You probably have a couple in your camera roll right now, just waiting to be uploaded and shared with the Facebook world.

Or you can go one step further and use the Google Street View (Android | iOS) app to take a true 360-degree photo sphere and upload it.

There is one thing to keep in mind when taking a panorama to upload: Facebook states this feature will only work with photos that are 100 degrees or bigger. Unfortunately there’s no easy way to see just how big a photo is (in terms of degrees, at least), so if you don’t want to capture the full landscape, you’ll need to do some trial-and-error to get a better idea of the correct size.

Thats all absolutely fine, i have already read it but if you have seen the Microsoft image i think its created using Photoshop & Illustrator simple artwork using Graphic designing softwares. Then how did they turn that into 360??

My best guess would be this from what I posted:

Create your image however you want then run it through an image stitcher.

That’s all I got unless someone else chimes in.

It would be grateful if anyone can help me out in this or chimes it out.
