Technological advancement has brought us to a world where everything that seems impossible now becomes possible, including visiting a place that is miles away without having to be there physically through a technology named 3D virtual walkthrough. It refers to a process of showing a virtual tour of a place that consists of multiple 360 images which are stitched together. As a result, it offers a representation of a place captured through 360 walkthrough software. It provides a realistic visualization and detailed information about a place in 3D shown on any screen.
GoThru allows you to create a 3D virtual walkthrough from your 360 images that enables you to expand product offerings through interactive 360 slideshow videos or 3D walkthrough videos from your existing 360 images and publish them to social media platforms to reach more people. With GoThru, you can create a video from the 360 images to be published on any social media, like YouTube, Facebook, or Instagram. In this post, let’s find out how to create a 3D virtual walkthrough from your 360 images with GoThru.
Before starting, make sure you have a GoThru account by visiting the GoThru web page. Then sign up with your email address or Google account for free. Then, select a tour and click on the Tools button. In the tools screen, click on the Walkthrough Video to start creating a video. It will bring you to the Walkthrough Video create, a screen where you can start working on your 3D virtual walkthrough.
In the Walkthrough Video create screen, you can make two video options: walking video or slideshow video. Walking creates a video that walks you through connected panoramas, and the slideshow creates a video that rotates you 360 degrees on each selected panorama. If you create a 3D walkthrough video, you can choose the walking video.
To start creating a 3D virtual walkthrough, click on the map of the first panorama you want the video to begin with. Then, continue the video by clicking on a green dot representing a connected panorama with the currently selected panorama. By then, the chosen panoramas will be added to the film strip, where you can remove a panorama from the video or change the panning direction of the panorama.
If you need to remove a panorama from the video, click on the white trash can in the film strip, which is available only on the last panorama from the film strip. You can also move the order by pressing the green and red arrows.
You can also select the background music by clicking the down arrow, then choose music that fits your 3D virtual walkthrough Video with your custom music or those available on GoThru Royalty Free Music.
After you are done with creating a 360 Video Walkthrough, click Create Video for the Walkthrough Video to be created on the GoThru servers. Once it is done, you will receive an email with the link to the video file.
You will receive an email with a link to download the file mp4 format. The link is valid for two weeks. You can also download the video once it has been created by using the download button at the bottom-right corner. Finally, your video is ready to be uploaded on your social media.
