If teachers and students want to create their own VR content, please refer to the following guidelines:
PRE-PRODUCTION. SCOUTING THE AREA.
- It is recommended to look for history-laden or popular tourist spot.
- Make sure that the location has few people or is free from the crowd. If there are people on-site, make sure their faces are not visible; otherwise, request consent from the people to be included in the 360 photo. Consent should be submitted to Diwa along with the material.
- Make sure the location is well-lighted. Rains or dark spaces affect the quality of the photo.
- It is recommended to use a 360 camera. In its absence, smartphones can also be used along with 360 camera apps with a slightly inferior output. Minimum resolution should be 2160 x 1200 for the full photo 360 view.
- 360 degree photo has a full image on all sides from the point the shot was taken. More information on 360 photos can be found here: https://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/360-degree-photograph
PRODUCTION. TAKE PHOTOS.
- It is recommended to use a monopod to make your photos still and eye-level with a person. Otherwise, hold the camera on top of your head while shooting sceneries.
- Set the monopod with the 360 camera at the center of your desired location. Take 2-3 shots that are not blurred, has less movement from people, and clear enough when the user turns around your place.
- Take photos at the corners too to give you several angle of the shots.
- Keep shooting until you have good photos that you can use for post-production.
POST-PRODUCTION. RESEARCH INFO ICONS.
- Edit the brightness and contrast of photos for good quality. Make sure photos are in JPEG or raw 360 format.
- Research on the history of the place and paraphrase it in bullet points.
- Look for interesting ideas about the place.
- What do you want your users to learn about the place? Your answer to these questions will serve as the info points in your VR. List a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 info point contents in a separate file included in your submission.
- Limit your info point content to 20 words for easy reading.
- Info point content could also be a short video to show more about the history or personalities involved in the location.
