Virtual tours stimulate creativity: a beautiful example with a virtual tour of a comic strip


Tuesday 31 July 2012

The definition attributed to a virtual tour is well known by everyone. “A set of dynamic panoramas allowing a simulation of an existing location according to the end user’s request”.

However, Abdou Diouri (photograph) & NkodeM (rapper & cartoonist of Manioka, a comic book claiming to be a futuristic & ironic metaphor on topical urban drifts), by their common work, bring something new to the building of virtual tours…

Virtual tours can serve many other causes as in this case, drawing and promoting a new comic book

Indeed, Manioka brilliantly shows that virtual tours are not only dedicated to world of photography, on the contrary! Virtual tours can serve many other causes as in this case, drawing and promoting a new comic book.

Abdou Diouri, author of the virtual tour, unveils a few secrets on how he turned a generic virtual tour to serve the comic strip: “Panotour Pro has been the ideal tool to deploy the graphic design of Manioka. It allowed a deep immersion in the comic strip by also adding the music, another strong element in the universe of Manioka. To make the virtual tour, we proceeded by trial and error by using the 3D editor to help us.  For some elements whose deformations were unpredictable, we transformed the drawing into cube face. Which helped us to draw the main character for example”.
This splendid result proves very well that the virtual tour can broaden its own creativity including:
• The 3D localized sounds (like those used in this visit)
• The insertion of video or moving images
• The customization of graphical themes
