Despite the video demonstrating the procedure with the Meta Quest, the process for HTC is practically identical.

View your Virtual Tours offline

How to watch virtual tours easily and offline on HTC Vive Focus 3 and HTC XR Elit? Nothing's easier than that. With the new 3DVista VR App, for free to download from the HTC Vive Store, you can now view your tours 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 "VR Apps" option. Inside, check the "Quest 3" box. 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.

Step 2. Create 3dvista folder in your HTC devices and copy tours

Connect your HTC 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 HTC screen prompting you to give your PC access to the device.

Go to the root folder of the HTC 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  

Go to the store and search “3DVista VR” in the list of apps (categories: Collaboration, Education, Simulation and Training). If you prefer, you can also directly download the app from this url:

Once the app is installed launch it and you will be prompted to give permissions to access the content of the device, hit “allow” to continue.

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 HTC Vive Focus 3 and HTC Vive XR Elite.
