10 Tips that will improve the experience of your virtual tour
Pick the best time to take your 360 photos
Does your Virtual Tour require a day or night scene? Take your 360 photos in the timing that best showcases the space
Pick a few scenes where there is an outdoor view
Besides the interior space, it would be nice if your clients could see around the space as well
Be sure to clear unwanted items out of the camera view<
The camera is able to capture everything around it in the space, so be sure to remove everything that isn't needed out of sight. You wouldn't want your tour to feature your wallet on the table, or your bag on the couch or chair.
Make sure the viewers are able to view everything in the space
If possible, try to cover every area of the space. Your viewers would appreciate it if they could tour every space visible
Make sure your viewpoints are from a natural, human perspective
Your camera should be at an appropriate height. A good height range would be from 1.5m to 1.6m
Make sure there aren't any motion blurs in your pictures
Make sure nothing is moving while you take your picture. A motion blur in your virtual tour will not be nice
Add in floor plan for convenience and easy navigation
Some users might find it hard to navigate their way around a virtual tour. With a floor plan, you would be able to make their lives much easier, and improve their experiance of your vitual tour.
Keep your light consistent
If there are separate spaces in your space, you should still try to keep the spaces as even as possible. It would not be nice for viewer to enter a nicely lit room, and then a dimly lit one just right after.
Get out of the shot
Be careful of furniture that can cause reflections, and be sure to get out of every single area which the camera is able to capture.
Ensure that you tripod is out of sight
This might be hard to achieve, but try to keep your tripod our of the way as much as possible, since your tripod might be blocking some items that shoud have been viewable in the space.
