Walkthrough: Creating a 360° Movie for Google Cardboard


To be able to create a 360° video of the camera flight from the previous walkthrough we need a few things:

  • a lot of free space on your hard disk, at least 2GB
  • download 360 Video Assets Unity Package
  • a software that takes the individual images and then creates a video from them (this will happen outside of Unity)
  • a tool that allows you to set the needed meta information in the created movie file as required by YouTube

Let us start by importing the Unity extension for taking 360° snapshots.
