3D panoramas 360° have become a rather original and effective way to present the project. Finished processed visualization has a viewing angle of 360°. This image is shown on any gadgets or stationary PCs.
Spherical 3D panoramas are a new-fashioned Internet tricky part and at the same time an effective advertising tool. This panorama is projected onto the inner part of the sphere with the help of a special program.
The viewer remains, as if in the central part of the sphere, and is able to rotate it in different directions and see what is depicted there. At the same time, he gets a detailed view as if visiting the place of shooting.
The 3D panorama creates a 3-dimensional feeling, a presence effect in a viewer when viewing an image, therefore 3D panoramas are a good way to display space.
Viewers who watch a 3D panorama are given the opportunity to control it as they wish, using the mouse or keyboard. Often, the functionality of 3D panoramas consists of various interactive blocks and control menus, such as tooltips, schemes, terrain maps, sound effects, video sequences, context menus, and other navigation elements.
Using a special program code, 3D panoramas can be embedded into absolutely any site based on absolutely any CMS (content management system) and will be played on all computers without loading and installing special software. 3D panoramas can work locally on your computer.
Special technologies that are used by us, allow you to reduce the load on your computer and incoming traffic consumed, without visible loss of quality. Spherical panoramas can be grouped in a virtual tour, for this, it is necessary to implement transitions from one panorama to another.
Due to certain specificity, the 3D panorama is available only for viewing on a computer. On the basis of such panoramas, virtual 3D tours around cities and objects are developed.
Interconnected several 3D panoramas form a virtual tour, in which the viewer can easily “walk” through the panoramas — locations (rooms, objects, spaces) while moving from one panorama to another will be performed at an intuitive level using special hints-transitions (hotspots).
Creating a 3D panorama is possible with a simple camera without special tools, but then you will need some skill and experience, and then diligent processing and removal of shooting errors. Consequently, immediately getting a great panorama without hard work will not work. In order to create a perfect spherical panorama, you need to have special equipment, software and, of course, experience. All this is at the disposal of specialists of the Artland Design Studio.
Why do you need 3D 360° panorama?
Many customers ask the question: why do I need this virtual presentation? Isn’t it possible to get by with just photos and videos? Sure you may. Previously, for example, people did very well without digital photography and cell phones. But now we cannot imagine our life without them.

Innovative marketing tools and 360 panoramas will be the optimal investment for advertising many types of products in various fields of activity. The client or investor will easily get the necessary information, spending a minimum amount of time to study.
Advantages of 3D 360° panorama
There is simply a huge number of ways to show potential customers all the advantages of your institution. But the most convenient and inexpensive solution would be to create a 3D 360° panorama.
3D panoramas are the perfect solution for those companies that are trying to keep up with the times. Many successful and globally recognized organizations have already taken advantage of this marketing tool. Using three-dimensional graphics instead of old technics allows popularizing your business.
In addition, this approach facilitates the work of managers and significantly reduces costs. After all, a panorama virtual tour will advertise the company round the clock, attracting more and more new customers. Even the simplest panorama of 360 degrees will be an effective way to demonstrate the company’s activities in the Internet resource or during the presentation.
Unlike 3D simple visualization, 3D panoramas display the object as it is. After their creation, nothing can be changed or supplemented in the interior. But, unlike 3D panoramas, 3D visualization cannot be represented on the site and be reproduced without additional software.
Through the use of technology, HTML5 panoramas can be played on phones and tablets. The production time for 3D panoramas is ten times less than the production time for 3D visualizations, which also applies to prices.
In the comparison of 3D panoramas with animations, the first win in their weight and image quality, as well as informative material. It is clear that when watching a video, we cannot look the other way, zoom in on an object of interest to us or postpone it. The video displays information in the framework, which is not realistic to go beyond.
It is important to note that it is the video that is based on scrolling through 3D panoramas often used to create videos that later show on the Internet or on the screens of exhibition stands.
Many panoramas have a huge resolution that allows to thoroughly examine all the details of the object and it is the multiresolution function that works in such a way that even panoramas with a giant resolution are loaded in a matter of seconds without creating a load on your computer system.
Area of usage
The use of 3D panoramas is huge. For example, real estate agencies and civil engineering firms will appreciate them.

How 3D Panorama 360° is created
Work begins with a discussion of customer needs. The manager finds out the purpose of advertising, offers a view with which the 3D panorama will be made, discusses the details of the order.
Then a model is created and 3D rendering is performed for the panorama. As a result, the customer receives a file with a 3D tour, which he can later place on his website or use in a convenient format. The main issues before the creation of 3D panoramas and virtual tour:
- the number of points (panoramas) in the virtual tour;
- the need to combine all 3D panoramas into one virtual tour;
- development of an individual menu corresponding to the corporate identity of the customer;
- the need for additional interactive features.
Creating all kinds of 3D panoramas can be divided into three main stages:
- Taking a picture of the object.
- Post-processing of images and combining them into 3D panoramas.
- Authoring a virtual tour – combining virtual 3D panoramas into a virtual tour, software debugging of the operation of all its constituent elements.
3D panoramas are assembled in the office at the workstation. Combining a series of shots in a 3D panorama, on average, takes from 30 to 120 minutes, it all depends on the complexity of the object. Terms of manufacturing are negotiated separately, when non-standard solutions are used, such as: 3D map, integration of individual design, etc.
