Pano2VR 7.1 beta

We are thrilled to bring you Pano2VR 7.1 beta! This update introduces exciting new features like morph transitions and generative AI image patches and we also squashed some bugs. Join us in our next webinar where we will go over these features and their workflows in detail.

Morph Transitions

One of the most frequently asked-for features is here! Morph transitions provide a motion effect between tour nodes that gives the feeling of virtually moving through each node. These transitions work on any spherical tour node. To add them, go to the Web Output settings and choose Morph under the Transitions parameter. View the virtual tour shown below.

Generative AI Patches

You can now use generative AI patches! We’ve found that the AI robot does quite well for Nadir and Zenith patches. After trying Open AI, Stability AI, and even Stability XL, we’ve decided to use OpenAI for now, as this provided the best overall results.

To add a generated patch image, choose an Image type patch, then click Generate. You’ll be prompted to log in to

You can provide a prompt if you want or leave the prompt empty (we’ve found this works well to match the floor and sky) by long-clicking the Generate button.

Depending on the content, it can take a few generation rolls. But don’t be discouraged; it can work well and even be faster than manually editing, even if you need to do a few generations. For the screenshots below, this was returned on the first generation and no further editing was done.

To refine the patch, use a Mask. Choose from a Rectangle or Circle mask. The mask can be resized by dragging on the green handle in the patch in the Viewer. You can also adjust the amount of feathering for the mask.

Get Tokens

To use the generative patches, purchase tokens with your account. Everyone with a Pano2VR 7 license will receive 250 free tokens to start with. After that, you can purchase 250 tokens for €10.00. 1 generation = 1 token.

You can get to the dashboard by logging in to your Garden Gnome account, and then click “Log in to Dashboard”. Once logged in go to Account Settings > Subscriptions.

Improved Integrated Web Server

The Integrated Web Server got an update! The web server is now faster especially when viewing projects in VR HMDs using Live Update/HTTPS.

Hand Tracking Support

We added hand tracking support to WebXR outputs for Meta Quests and Apple Vision Pro. Pinch and drag to spin the panorama and pinch to click on buttons.

Additionally, Playstation controllers can now be used to control the immersive view. Use the shoulder buttons to move to the next node and the joystick to rotate the panorama.


We will hold a webinar on Wednesday April 24th at 17:00 CEST to show all these new features and their workflows. Register here.
