    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Stereo Panoramic Player is a runtime plugin to show and interact with 360° panoramic images and videos, supporting both mono and stereo sources. It offers an high-level actor (Panoramic Director), to quickly assemble an interactive panoramic virtual tour, and a low-level actor (Panoramic Sphere) to allow a programmatic customization of the user experience. It’s compatible with all the major platforms and it’s actively tested on PC, VR (Steam and Oculus), iOS and Android.

ChangeLog (v1.1.0)


With the Panoramic Director you can define, directly in-editor, a complete panoramic virtual tour: import the panoramic images and videos, define your custom hotspots, and it will take care of everything at run-time, detecting when the user is interacting with an hotspot and managing the transition between the panoramic media.


The Panoramic Sphere actor gives you complete control of the panoramic experience: you can programmatically control it to display panoramic media and detect interactions with the panoramic sources. It can show images and videos, in both mono and stereo formats.
