Create a new Experience
You can create a new Virtual Experience by selecting the Create a new experience button on top of your Space.
Now select one of the templates.
3D rooms (Weekly Meeting, Art Gallery, etc): these templates allow you to organize immersive meetings, events or galleries by customizing the assets in the room and use a main screen to share content. You can also explore 360 medias by adding them in your presentation.
360 Virtual Tour: includes Sample Virtual Tour Assets with 360 images and videos to walk you through how to use interactive hotspots as well as incorporating quizzes and scorecards.
360 Blank Experience: this is an empty project with default settings for 360 experiences only.
Once a template is loaded, you can either launch your experience right away to test how it looks or start to create a unique and powerful presentation.
Edit the Virtual Experience
Click on the settings icon to edit the general information about your Virtual Experience. This information will be visible to everyone who has access to the Team Space:
Experience Title: This is the name of the experience that will be shown in the Space you’ve previously created. For example, if your Space is “The natural science of Astronomy”, a presentation title can be “Fly me to the moon”.
Description: This is the description of the experience that will be shown in the Team Space you’ve previously created. It’s also publicly visible to everyone invited to access this experience.
Poster Image: This is the visual tied to the title and description in the experience.
Display Outline: This shows or hides the outline of the experience in the room. If activated, the outline will be visible to anyone when accessing the experience online on a dedicated panel.
Display Control Bar: This shows or hides the navigation bar in the 3D Room, which shows the title of each experience resource and navigation arrows at the bottom of the screen, or on the player control bar for 360° videos.
Add a new scene
On the left of the screen, you will find the Outline of your experience.
> A Presentation can be composed by one or multiple sections.
> A section can be considered like a chapter of a book, with a title to describe the multiple Scenes under it.
