Distortion improvement progress

Here are two 360 comparison videos going by the Eiffel tower on a boat.  The "new" video is with our projected images, the "old" video is with our morphed images.  Drag your mouse as they are playing to look in all directions.

New: https://vimeo.com/379347378
Old: https://vimeo.com/379347161

This comparison highlights that where an image doesn't have depth information, it appears frozen in the old method.  So the first benefit you'll notice is the water moves naturally in the new method, because Streetview rides along rivers and hiking trails don't have depth information except right under the path they travel.  The second benefit you'll notice is the tower actually moves relative to the boat, because Streetview rides don't contain depth information outside of 100 feet, and the tower in these shots is over 500 feet away.

In a future comparison we'll show other benefits of the new method, such as no "stretchy" areas or broken up horizons, as well as some places where you'd want to keep the old method.

Sincerely good luck on your recovery sypder!
Scary thing is that I was riding an exercise bike when I had the heart attack (not doing VZfit though).

If you need to take it easy, remember you can lower the Difficulty above the HUD to pedal slower for the same virtual speed. That can also be useful if you like working out on higher resistances.

When I go fast with my bike on roads it goes under the roads why is this?

Hey Zoomer,
What difficulty setting did you have it on and is this only a specific ride or all of them?

I have it on 5 I do believe that is the one they most start out on.

Hi Zoomer,

You may be "outrunning" the stream of Streetview images. That shouldn't happen you have consistent network bandwidth of 3 Mbps, which is equal to the minimum required by Netflix. But even if you don't, you should only see more stretching since we skip Streetview images to match your available bandwidth, rather than go under the road.

If you go to fast.com with a phone or computer on the same network, does it report 3 Mbps or better?

Also does it seem like Streetview images are keeping up but your viewpoint is just under the road?

I’m very excited that new version of explorer is coming. I watched the video and it looks amazing.
Today I tried to ride together with my father-in-law in one of the Towns in Lithuania. Every time he or I tried to click on other persons name to ride together it was kicking out of the other person from Virzoom.
That was the first time we tried to use this feature to ride together. Maybe we did not configure something properly.

We can retest this today, but it might have to do with the precise ride parameters, could you tell me which of your rides you're trying?

We discovered a bug if you try to matchup with another ride who's creating an open-ended ride.  Have fixed that for next build, is it possible that covers your case?
