Almost Cloudless


Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° Virtual Reality.

I was reminded that flat 2D backgrounds are boring in 360° 3D virtual reality scenes, and since I’ve never been much of a CGI “cartoon” guy, here’s a real 3D background photo of the palm trees out in front of our apartment building here in West Covina, California. Shot with a Fujifilm W3 3D camera, there’s only about .6% net deviation, so wrapping it 325 degrees around the sphere in a Blender Spherical Stereo project should provide plenty of depth with a Google Cardboard or Gear VR type stereoscopic viewer, and yet not hurt anyone’s eyes.
There is one distant cloud that you’ll have to ignore, but I don’t think it’s visible enough to really matter.
This static scene “plays” for 3 minutes, to provide enough time to look around.
