Derjyn it is really hard to understand your motivation of commenting. I bought the material and it *highly* satisfied my needs. Also the seller is really helpful, I was'nt able to run it in 4.18 he fixed it in minutes. If you really want make something really productive create your material and than release an article here.

Facebook Lets Users Relieve Moments in VR
3 May, 2018

Facebook has just introduced a new feature that will let you relive your photos and videos by revisiting those locations in VR. The giant has shown an amazing project that can create 3D spaces from your 2D photos and videos.

First, take a look at a 1-minute demo shared by Rachel Franklin, Facebook’s head of social VR, at the annual F8 conference this week:

Facebook’s new feature is based on photogrammetry and AI, so it will use your photos and videos of the same location and uploaded to Facebook for “point cloud reconstruction” to generate a 3D space that you can explore your memories in.

As of this moment, the recreated world look kind of strange — there’s dream-like look to them, but imagine the possibilities here. The feature needs some adjustments and time, but we’re sure Facebook can build something truly amazing. Is this the future for photo viewing experiences? Time will tell.

Make sure to share your thought on the announced project in the comments below.
