I'm looking for a way to capture 3D 360 photos of my scenes in Unity on Gear VR. Is there anything like that? Initial searching revealed "360 Panorama Capture" and "VR Panorama 360 PRO Renderer"; has anyone tried using it for taking panoramas in their Gear VR?

    Additional searching revealed that Oculus actually has a 360 Capture SDK for both PC/Rift and Mobile/Gear VR. So far, though, I haven't seen any indication that the mobile variant has been integrated into Unity, so I'm unclear if that's something I can pursue.

    I did however discover that Unity's Camera class has a RenderToCubemap method. I might research and experiment based on this, to see if I can render a stereo cubemap with it.

    Yes, I have used the 360 Panorama Capture from Unity Asset Store. It works well and I have the output I wanted.
