  • Patent number: 11328157
    Abstract: A method and system for authoring a three-dimensional (3D) presentation can involve dividing a scene into a grid of equals-sized segments or non-equally sized segments, wherein one or more 360-degree cameras record the scene from a center of each segment, and a size of the each segment is proportional to a complexity of an environment captured in the scene. One or more objects can be created within the scene for a user interaction with a 3D presentation of the scene in the context of a video stream. A logical center of the object(s) can be used as a center point for recording a 360-degree video by the one or more 360-degree cameras for use as a low fidelity background video when the user interacts with the 3D presentation of the scene.
