360° Video with Flash

Between 2 projects at Emakina, I quickly built a 360° video mapping with Flash using a geosphere generated from 3DS Max and loaded with PV3D AS3 library.

If you want play your own video, it is quite simple. But you’ll need a very special camera (Dodeca® camera) to capture your scene. Plus, capturing videos with that type of device gives fish-eye distorted result, just like the shot in the header of this article. Here is the lenses:

When I saw this distorted picture, I quickly though about drawing a BitmapData of that clip into a texture, create a geosphere in 3DSMAX with flipped normals, export this sphere in Collada format and load the collada file into a Flash scene with Papervision3D library. Have a look.

Click and move your mouse over the movie below:

About videos

The videos I use come from ImmersiveMedia.com.
This kind of 360° video player was already made by ImmersiveMedia but only for the Shockwave plugin.
I think I have a good approach here with the Flash Player plugin.


Here you can test the same technique but with static images, such as cubic or spheric skyboxes.

This movie requires Flash Player


You can take a look at the source files by clicking here.


The source files are updated with Away3D library in place of PV3D.

    Hello Quentin,

    Your comment about ‘shockwave only’ is not accurate. We released a player implemented Flash earlier this year, which you can see on our website:


    …and on some of our clients’ sites as well:


    At the very least, this is confirmation that you did, in fact, have a very good approach 😉

    Since you clearly share our enthusiasm for both spherical video and Flash technologies, and because this is in your R+D corner, I will overlook the fact that you are using our content without permission.

    Please feel free to ask in the future, though.

    Hi Fuad,

    Sorry to say I received a mail from Eric Weymueller (Director, studios & network / executive producer) from Immersive Media 3 months ago to ask me to put some proper credit for the usage of your 360 flv files… And I did it.

    There is what he said to me :

    “Quentin –

    We were recently made aware of your blog and posting at: http://adn.blam.be/papervision/ where you appear to have appropriated our video content in order to run some tests on delivering Flash/Spherical.

    As you’ll see in the coming days, we are about to migrate our Flash/Cylindrical to Flash/Spherical, with a few other bells and whistles attached.

    Obviously, we would appreciate if you could include proper Credit and Linkage back to us ….
    Our first public usage and updates to our site will start taking place in about 24-hours.

    So, I’m still saying I was the first to publish it in Flash :p
    I’m not ripping or reselling your stuff… Otherwise I think I made a good advertising for you.
    I received a lot of questions about this R&D and I’m not fool to say I made the video myself…so all the benefits came to you.

    Before you get too excited, I was merely pointing out an error on your posting, applauding your efforts and inviting you start a dialog with me.
    I am a huge proponent of R+D (I have built a career upon it) and I encourage all developers — professional, hobbyist, and otherwise — to take an interest in what we are doing and to push the limits on this amazing technology.

    My chief concern is that our applications (and applications that use our content) present Immersive content in the best possible light. You can see that the features in our Flash player aim to do this — for example, displaying high-resolution images when the player is paused and providing an automatic link for sharing:

    Like I said, I admire your enthusiasm and I hope you continue to pay close attention to Immersive Media. Feel free to check in with me from time to time, and visit our website…


    …regularly to keep abreast of developments. You may even want to check out our careers page:

    Good work Quentin. I do recall being at a meeting in 2001 at Ipix corp. and they were demonstrating this 360 Video and I was blown away to see the Heli flying over a jungle and being able to scroll around in any direction. Although this wasn’t presented in flash. I don’t think they ever fully marketed the technology though. And remember at that time (2000 – 2001) Flash was still very young and it was Macromedia before Adobe absorbed it. Also I think it would have been difficult to this in AS1. I was trying to develop pano 360 viewer in flash back then and it was a B*tch! haha Finally succeeded with AS2 though! But anyways this is great technology that you are working on here… keep up the good work. peace .V,

    Quentin Lengelé - January 22, 2009 reply

    Hi Audio Michael,

    I’m not a expert in 360 lens. I know there are lots of 360° lens types. You can easily find them on Google.
    The only thing I can tell you is the Immersive Media camera is much more accurate then other lens because it’s made with multiple lens and then multiple movie captures.

    Think about the fact if you choose a certain type of lens, you’ll have to find the correct unwarp algorithm in AS3.
    Here, for the Immersive Media cam, it was a sphere to rebuild with Papervision (easy to do)… but it may be more complicated with another type of lens.

And off course a drop down list where I can select my different panorama’s. Is this possible in flex, you think?

    I normally import my spherical jpg’s in a program like Pano2VR, which delivers a swf file. But if i import the swf with swfLoader-component, it always gives strange errors in flex. That’s why I would like to just have a simple interface like you made for video’s, but then just for my 360° jpg’s…

    I’d like to congratulate you by the awesome work. I’m beginning with Flex and when I try to compile with the SDK environment appears the following error:
    “Error: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: ASE.

    private var sphere: ASE; ”

    Then I think that the compiler isn’t recognizing the ASE format. Could you help me, please?

    I download your source code with papervision3d, but when running on Flash Builder I have a “lib” missing folder error.

    I use a 360 camera and was wondering how you convert the .flv file to a stitched togethor video? What software do you use? Can you export these as a video that has a stop or pause button so as to drive down the road, and stop mid-block and take a pan around, and then press play and continue on down the road (recording)?

    Well, this feature is quiet difficult to handle.
    In fact, you want a Google Street View with video in place of images…
    Technically, you cannot choose a direction on a 360 video panorama.
    It is possible to do some fake stuff to give the impression… but it will never be full interactive.

    Hi Quentin!

    I noticed the post is originally from 2008… is your source code up to date, though? in terms of how flash/flex/papervision function now?

    that’s so extremely nice of you to share the files!!!


    Quentin Lengelé - February 24, 2011 reply

    Indeed, my sources are quiet old.
    The PV3D version used in it was very buggy at this time 🙂
    I made another engine to do 360 video panoramas but I need to find time to write a good article.
    This engine is a part of my new AS3 framework in development.
    Available soon.

    I think you can specify the type of the camera you want to use in 3DS to render your scene.
    A colleague of mine use this technique.

    Hi Quentin,
    I was wondering if you had an update to the FX3 360 video Papervision3D sample you did..maybe on FX4 and ideally for 4.6? Thanks.


    Quentin Lengelé - January 18, 2012 reply

    Hi, yep, the version on my blog is quiet old now.

    I made a better one (Panorama3D) but it’s part of my new AS3 framework.
    And the framework is not completed yet.

    But, if you want a quick solution, you can do this:

    1. With Away3D 4.x, build a sphere and flip faces.
    2. Read a video stream and draw the Video component in a bitmapData with a inversed matrix.
    3. Apply this bitmapData to the material of the sphere.
    4. Put some mouse control on the rotation of the Sphere.

    Hi Q, our company is looking for a simple yet very optimized 360 flash video player, which we could plug into our interactive player.

    we were wondering if your new player was available commercially?

    we need the player to play HIGH-resolution video (as much as the player will allow it) and fit into a 1080p display (the interface is also built at 1080p), and be able to to be called into our interface directly (SWF file) with some simple controls (play pause).

    would be awesome to hear back from you ; )


    Q - November 16, 2016 reply

    Hi Christian,

    My 360° Video Player is not for sale, you can download sources on the bottom of the article.
    But are you sure you want a Flash solution for your business?
    Flash is quite dead today (unfortunately) and there are nice JS solutions to do what you want:
