360° stereo

With multiple pairs of left/right cameras, 360°stereo video can be captured and stitched into panoramic video for VR. Stereo 360° provides 3DoF with functional stereo when your point of view aligns horizontally with the camera pairs used to capture the content, but the stereo effect breaks between those original left/right camera views and when you look up or down or when you roll your head off the horizon line. There are no immersive visual cues like parallax, view dependent reflections or specular highlights, and stitching artifacts are often visible and are hard to eliminate.
