Virtual tour tutorial - Insta360 x iStaging

Step 1: Get a camera

While you can use bulky and complex rigs, Insta360 ONE X makes virtual tours easy. With the ONE X real estate kit, you’ll be set.

Step 2: Get some virtual tour software

iStaging makes it easy and affordable to turn objects and spaces into virtual tours. It’s tightly integrated with ONE X to make the creation process simple and fast.

Step 3: Preparation

Set up your camera in the center of the room on a tripod, then get out of the shot (perhaps behind a wall or in the next room). ONE X has Wi-Fi preview and control so that you can shoot from afar, without spoiling your virtual tour.

We recommend positioning the camera to minimize reflections to prevent the camera from being seen in a mirror. In addition, it’s best to angle your ONE X with the side of the camera facing the brightest spot in the room, for example, a window. That way, the light will be evenly distributed across both lenses.

Step 4: Shoot

After downloading iStaging’s VR Maker app, shoot with the ONE X directly from that app. The ONE X will auto-adjust so your shots come out clean, while iStaging creates the tour.

Step 5: Share

After you’ve finished shooting your virtual tour, you’ll get a link that you can use to share anywhere. Alternatively, you can embed it right into your property listing. Simple.
