360° Scene Filming/Compression:

A Ricoh Theta camera is recommended, but any camera that takes 360° photospheres should work well with CenarioVR.

360° cameras often produce output that requires bandwidth greater than can be streamed over the internet. It is highly recommended that video compression tools be used before uploading any 360° video on the internet.

There are many professional tools available such as Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut Pro. For a free option that works well, consider using Handbrake.
