What is the difference between a still photo, a video and a 360 photo?
Still images and video are flat and passive. The viewer remains an outside observer. The real strength of the internet is interactivity. 360 Photos and 360 Virtual Tours are interactive.
- Still images say, "Look at this, and only this."
- Video says, "Look at this and this and this and this and..."
- 360 photos say, "Experience this, interact with this!"
How long does it take to complete a 360 virtual tour?
This can depend on our work schedule at the time and how many tours you need. To shoot one tour can take anywhere between 30 minutes to a couple of hours. The complex part is when we stitch the images together which depending on the complexity of the room can take from just 30 minutes up to a few hours. Typically, a single tour can be developed within 1 to 2 days.
