The zip contains 4 folders.

An empty player with simple menu an example film and movie file.
Vortex
This is an example of a film setup to be sent out to others with a bespoke menu made by the artist and film ready to watch in full fulldome 3D and 5.1 sound. To watch the film simple run Vortex from with the folder and your away. Keys for the menu are arrow up, down, left, right and enter to play and pause.
Converters
This contains open source video converts to get your films into a format that can be played back by the player. Simply drag and drop your audio and video onto the correct bat files and select from the menu.

Ok so now there is a downloadable version so mosy on over to the player page and download the first version. V1.

What is contain in this pack.

You get a copy of the producer/publisher a use of the publisher in the form of Vortex and some convertor tools to help you get the publisher working for yourself.

Up and coming features.

The next version will contain support for other immersive formats including full fisheye 360 and panroamic fisheye. I’m also debating whether a scale option if useful.

Update, player almost ready to release

OK. So I was going to release it over the weekend but an issue with sync and play back meant I needed to do more work on it. It is however very close now and much closer to what I wanted with a better navigation system and sound playback.

So a little more work and it will be released.
