Adobe Captivate Tutorial - Creating a Virtual Reality Project with Adobe Captivate 2019

 

 


Adobe Captivate is one of the famous software used to develop eLearning. In this 2019 version, it has a feature called Virtual Reality (VR) Project. For your information, VR is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. We can use VR Project feature to add 360° images, videos and interactive hotspots which can help to create interesting interactivity among the learners and also enjoyment during the learning process.


In this project, we will show step by step on how to use the VR feature to create a simple overview video of Cempaka Technology Sdn Bhd.


We will start from the view of visitor at the company entrance.


First, we need to capture entrance view of the company so that visitor can picture the look of the entrance when they arrive at the location. In order to do this, we need to launch two web browsers and one application:

4. Once we have dragged to the selected location, it will automatically change the Google Maps view to Google Street View Panorama. Adjust the view to get the best view of the company entrance.

To download image of Google Street View Panorama, I’ll be using application as I mentioned above.


Capturing 360 Image Using Google Street View App

Another option to generate 360 images is by using the Google Street View application. You will also find many 360 VR images available in the Asset Library, media stock purchasing service and stock photography resources. In this project, we will create and import pictures that we have captured using Google Street View app. This app is available in the App Store or Google Play. You can capture a 360 image by using their in-app camera.

Now, we will use Google Street View in-app camera to capture 360 images of the office surrounding. You’ll see the orange dot around your viewfinder after you launch the in-app camera. As you move your camera to hit all the points, the images are snapped automatically without pressing the shutter button. Do this until you’re fully taken an entire photosphere.
