Description: SceneThere lets you create and explore interactive 360-content from exotic places such as Thailand, North Korea and Burning Man. Navigate from point to point in a 360 film just by clicking on the blue hotspots. Using SceneThere’s tools anyone with a 360-camera can create rich interactive stories. Together with leading 360 filmmakers we create unique VR-experiences that bridges films and games. SceneThere believes that 360 films can be something more than linear storytelling. That’s why we’re the first application to introduce the ability to hyperlink 360-videos with hotspots.
Review: On paper ‘SceneThere’ sounds like a good idea. There are loads of 360 videos and photos to enjoy and you can explore the world (well, the parts they have footage of). If you enjoy things like Google Earth VR you might find yourself enjoying this. Personally I was not a fan as you have to download each scene you come to and that takes a long time and sadly the quality is not all than neither when compared to other, individual 360 videos scenes. It’s OK I suppose and it is 100% free, but I wish it was a lot better.
