Over the last decade, Virtual Reality and 360º video techniques and content have progressed enormously yet somewhat side by side. This talk by Nathalie Mathe at the IVRPA Tokyo 2018 Conference examines how the separate trends of real-time interactive graphics (CG) and 360º video are converging in the near future to expand immersive and interactive narrative possibilities.
