View your tours offline on Pico devices
How to watch virtual tours easily and offline on Pico Devices? Nothing's easier than that. With the new 3DVista VR App for Pico, for free to download from the Pico Store, you can now view your tours on the Pico G2, Pico Neo 2 and Pico Neo 3 in the most easy and native way. No more need to copy and paste tour links and view them through the browser or download them from the online version. Instead, you can simply use 3DVista's new VR app for free and play the tours copied to the device, directly in VR mode. Simply follow these steps.
Step 1. Publish your Tours for VR
The first thing you have to do is access your tour in VT PRO, go to the "Publish" button and select the first "For Web / Mobile" option. Remember to check the option "Vive, Oculus and Gear VR" (this will optimize the files for playback on VR devices) and optionally "Optimize Images" in the Settings below, so that they occupy less. Select a folder on your hard drive to which you want to save the tour and click "Publish".
Important: Make sure you publish your tours with the most recent version of 3DVista and include a button to enter VR mode (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLVJ9hH21tw).
Step 2. Create 3dvista folder in Pico and copy tours
Connect your Pico device to your PC using a usb-c cable. Should your PC not reconnect to the new unit, try turning on the goggles. This'll pop up a menu on the Pico screen prompting you to give your PC access to the device.
Go to the root folder of the Pico drive and create a new folder with the name "3dvista". Inside it is where you can then copy the previously published tour folder(s) so that you can later view them within the 3DVista app.
Step 3. Install the 3DVista VR app
Turn on your Pico and go to the app store. Click on "Search" and type "3dvista". The app will be shown, click on it to see in detail. Now, click on "Download" and the app will begin to download and install in your device. Once the process is finished, the "Open" button will appear. Click on it to start the app. Now you will get a menu in which the app will ask for permissions to access the content of the device, hit "allow" to continue. If you prefer, you can also directly download the app from this url: https://download.3dvista.com/vrapp/vrapp-3dvista-picoxr.apk
And that's it, after the initial loading screen, the app will show you a list of all the tours that you initially copied. And by clicking on them you can view them directly in VR mode. The easiest way to watch virtual tours on your Pico devices.
