How to Level your Photosphere

Correct your photosphere’s calibration any time after uploading it to HoloBuilder with controls as easy as in a flight simulator.

To make the best possible 360° shots of your surroundings, the most common solution is to use a tripod. BUT, we do not always have a tripod at hand which leaves us no other choice than to be our own human tripod. With HoloBuilder, you can level your uploaded photosphere afterward to the correct calibration or set a new origin for first opening the scene.

Level your 360° sphere

Level your photosphere with the calibration tool (see image below). Simply click on the ‘Rotate sphere’ button rotateSphere located in the working area of the editor. Calibrate your photosphere on the x-, y- and z-axis for a straightened view.

To rotate the sphere on an axis, click and hold the button of the according axis and drag the button to the left or right until your photosphere is leveled. Release the button and proceed as described before on the other two axises. See an exemplary adjustment in the image below.

Select new origin

Furthermore, HoloBuilder enables you to reset your spheres origin. Simply rotate your 360° image on the y-axis to the desired point in the sphere. Now, when changing the scene, the selected origin will be displayed as the first view of the scene.

Do not compensate by tilting your head, just level your photosphere and enjoy the experience.
