180/360 degrees 2D and 3D panoramic video
VR Tourviewer supports monoscopic and stereoscopic 180 and 360 degrees panorama videos.
You can add the following to the ID of the hotspot or video in Pano2VR, or to the mp4 filename if you’re using it as Input Video:
180 degrees panorama video: _180
360 degrees panorama video: _360
3D panorama video: _tb (for top/bottom) or _lr (for left/right)
For example: the ID for a hotspot to a 180 degrees 3d video could be: Point01_180_tb
The filename to a 360 monoscopic/non-3d video as Input Video could be MyVideo_360.mp4

How does 3D stereoscopic video work?
Due to the fact that a stereoscopic video has to play the left and right eye exactly synchronized, the left and right eye video have to be part of the same video file. This can be done by merging the left and right video into a top-bottom video. The top half is the left eye video, the bottom half is the right eye video.
For VR Tourviewer to recognize the file as a top/bottom stereoscopic video, the filename has to contain the text ‘_tb’ or ‘_TB’.
To use the video, in Pano2VR choose the video file for the ‘Input Video’.
If you have a stereoscopic tour, the video in the left eye panorama will be used, the right eye video setting will be ignored.
For stereoscopic video the recommended resolution is: 4096×4096 (4096×2048 per eye)
Video codec: H265, 30fsp, 30Mbps
Filename: contains ‘_tb’ or ‘_TB’
