Until now when we thought about 3D in architecture it meant creating a photorealistic rendering or animation of the space that accurately represented the lighting, materials, reflections of the design. Lighting and focal length techniques were used to simulate the actual depth or “4D” of the space. With the new ease and availability of viewers like Samsung VR Gear and Oculus Rift. Clients can now actually see depth perception and move within the design to allow them to experience and explore as never before.
Best results occur when viewing the image using a Samsung Gear VR device but other viewers like google cardboard and a smartphone can be used to get similar results.

You just need to get the image file into the right location for the 360 Photo App on your Samsung phone to find it easily. You can use an SD card, or through your phone’s root directory, simply create or find a folder called Oculus. In that Oculus folder, create another folder called 360Photos.
