Pano2VR - Help


You can use the Panoramic Video Wizard to convert your stitched video panorama to a 3x2 format that's needed for Pano2VR to generate the VR video panorama.

Step 1[edit]

The first step is to first extract the frames of the video.

Input Video File: Click, Open, to add the stitched video panorama.

Extracted Images Folder: Choose where to store the extracted images.

Extract Images: Click this button to start the extraction process. A progress bar will appear at the bottom of the window.

Step 2[edit]

The second step will convert those extracted frames to a 3x2 image format (cube faces are arranged in 2 rows with 3 faces).

Cube Face Size: Set the cube face size. Changing this value will change the video's dimensions. If you see a warning symbol it could mean a few things (hover to see the warning). Also, neither will hinder you from carrying on with the output process:

Video Size: This is the video's dimension which is based on the cube face size.

Converted Images Folder: Choose the folder for the converted images. You can add them to the same folder as the extracted images since the converted images will be renamed.

Step 3[edit]

This is the last step in the process where you can choose the video format and data rate.

Audio: If there's an audio track embedded in the video and you'd like to include in the output, make sure this option is selected.

Video Format: Select a Format.

Frame Rate: Dial in the desired frame rate or click, Read from Source, to grab the video's original frame rate.

Video Bitrate: Dial in the data rate for the video. Generally, for video panoramas, you might want to use a higher bitrate (between 3000 and 5000 kb/s or more).

Audio Bitrate: Dial in the data rate for the audio. 128 kb/s will work for most audio.

Output Video File: Click, Open… to Choose the location for the final output video.

Run All: Hit this button to run all processes.

Delete temporary files when finished: Select to delete the temporary files. You might want to keep the ones from the first run so that the next conversions (if needed) won't need to recreate them.

Close: Click to close the Panoramic Video Wizard.
