When you’re using InDesign to create digital publishing apps for mobile devices, you can add all kinds of interactive effects, including panoramas. A panorama overlay can give you the impression that you’re inside a building or cockpit, allowing you to spin around and zoom in and out.
Unfortunately, creating the source files for panoramas is not easy. A panorama overlay requires six images that represent the inside of a cube.
You can use Photoshop to create a 3D panorama image. However, converting a 3D panorama image into the six images requires a third-party tool such as Pano2VR. Here’s how to use Pano2VR to convert a 3D panorama image into the six images required by the Overlay Creator.
