Sketch 360 is a drawing app that helps you create 360 sketches and videos from a single point looking out in all directions. These sketches and videos can then be viewed in VR head-mounted-display, a web browser in a 360 viewer on your own web pages or on sites like Kuula.co, Facebook and YouTube. Sketch the real world - or the virtual: it's useful for VR designers, architects, urban sketchers, or artists: anyone who wants to sketch out an immersive experience. You draw with pens, pencils, and highlighters on a digital canvas using Windows Ink and can see what the end result will look like in 360 while you are drawing it. An equirectangular perspective grid helps you while you draw with a stylus, mouse, or your finger. Embed Images and Videos into sketches that are embedded into the final images and videos. You can adjust their size, position opacity and whether they will be in the final output. If you share your 360 sketches and videos, please tag them with #Sketch360! - NEW tabbed user interface. - NEW 360 sketching view to draw directly on the 360 view. - NEW stencils to help you draw lines on the equirectangular axes. Sketch 360 is a Microsoft Garage Project. The Microsoft Garage is an outlet for experimental projects for you to try. Learn more about The Garage at: http://microsoft.com/garage.
