I have a lot of old QuickTime VR cubic panorama images which I want to view with my Google Cardboard, preferably using Google Cardboard iOS app. I think for this I would need some converter, which makes a flat image from the cubic projection, then import this image somehow. Do you know such kind of a converter application?

  • linkedin.com/pulse/… and ggnome.com/pano2vr May be of use. Might have to jailbreak your phone or share photos into the cardboard app. – bret7600 Oct 10 '16 at 23:37
  • As far as I can see Pano2VR does not support QTVR input format: ggnome.com/wiki/Input%20formats%20%28Pano2VR%29 – gklka Oct 11 '16 at 6:26

    I contacted the developers this morning and asked. They said Just use the QTVR as the input image and then use the HTML5 output with the Cardboard html template and you should be good to go. (see: ggnome.com/doc/pano2vr/5/hmd-how) – bret7600 Oct 12 '16 at 13:11
  • Thank you, that's a good start, Pano2VR works fine for exporting a flat image. Now I have to import it somehow. I've figured out, that Google Cardboard doesn't want to import the image no matter which name I set for it and which size I resize it. Maybe because it needs some special pseudo-3D-sound-included format? – gklka Oct 12 '16 at 22:48
  • Try getting an app like iExplorer or iFunbox and putting the file directly inside of the app. Another alternative (and I'm unsure if this will work) is to put the file into your phone via itunes. (Not sure if google cardboard and itunes get along though) – bret7600 Oct 13 '16 at 13:57
