We usually highlight a single video in an article quite rarely, but having just been given an exclusive 3840 x 1920 60 Mbit/s 360° video download link, we just couldn’t resist sharing it with everyone. Thanks to 3di, you can now visit CosPlay Village at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. 3di previously brought Belly Dancing with Nikki to 360°, a video I highly recommend checking out.
For those unfamiliar with what Cosplay is, it’s dressing up as a character from a movie, book, Manga, Anime, etc. and sometimes even involves acting like them for an event. Most people who Cosplay don’t wake up every day in costume. They join events occasionally to dress up like this one. Think of it like an elaborate costume party.
This is a very large download. The file size is about 1.3GB in size. Gear VR owners will need to copy the above file to the SD Card on your Note 4 or S6 phone in the following folder: /Oculus/360Videos/. Google Cardboard users will need to play in an appropriate Google Cardboard 360° viewer. We recommend AAA VR Cinema. For Oculus Rift users, just use Virtual Desktop to view, and open the downloaded video from the video player section. Starting next week this video will also be available to download from 3di.nl.
We were able to check out the video and have provided you with some of our favorite screenshots below, along with our best guesses of who they are dressed as (don’t hate us for the horrible guesses):
You can also view the video via YouTube (it will be in significantly lower quality):
