Manual Captures allow you to take an individual, still 360° photo using your Garmin VIRB or Insta360 camera, and pin it to your floor plan. Manual Captures are a quick way to capture a space without doing a whole walk.

  1. To take a Manual Capture: Open your OpenSpace app, and select 'New Capture' at the bottom of the screen. From here choose, 360° Photos.

2. Select the floor-plan you are on, and tap the location of the manual capture on the floor-plan.

3. Lastly you will choose 'Capture 360° Photo', stand still for a few seconds, and have your 360° capture!

Manual Captures can offer higher resolution image, a quick way to 360° capture a single room, and an alternative way to track progress.

Notes about Manual Capture/360 Photos

  1. When you're viewing your manually captured 360 photos there will be no field of view cone indicating the direction that you're facing relative to the floor plan.
  2. The split view will not align automatically when you press the lock button.
  3. The BIM Viewer will not be aligned to your field of view.

If you prefer to be able to utilize these features please use the 360 Videos/360 Site Walk option for capturing.
