The “Media Manager” enables you to manage all the media necessary for your project. If at the beginning of your project, all the media you will need are ready (sound, images, videos, etc.), save some time by importing them all together. If you import them as you build your experience, the Media Manager is where you will find them.
The Media Manager organizes the seven types of media usable in Sphere:
- 360 photo panorama
- 360 video panorama
- 3D meshes

Add a media
To add a media (e.g.: a panorama):
- Click on the “PANORAMAS” tab
- Click on the “Add a panorama” button
- Select the file(s) for your project
- Click on “Open” to start the import
Follow the same steps for each type of media.
Preview the media
Within the Media Manager, you can preview each media by clicking on their thumbnail. For images, spritesheets and 3D meshes, when you click on a thumbnail, you get a preview of the media.
The same operation on a (360) video enables you to play the media in the preview. Under the video, the Play/Pause button as well as the progress bar enable you to control the preview. Note: the adjustment of the sound is only effective within the preview.
You can also preview a sound but again, the adjustment of the sound is only effective within the preview.
Within the Media Manager, it is possible to delete media one by one or by groups. To do so:
- Click on the tab corresponding to the type of media you want to delete
- Tick the box of one or several media
- The “delete” button will now appear, click on it
- A pop up window will ask you to confirm or cancel your choice
When deleting a media from the Media Manager, you will also delete it permanently from your project!
