What are Facebook 3D photos

Facebook 3D photos bring 2D scenes to life with depth and movement, when you scroll the news feed on Facebook. This functionality introduces depth to a static, flat image and allows users to tilt the image with a parallax effect.  

This Facebook feature has initially been available on phones with a dual camera only. Now anyone can upload their Vectary 3D scenes as Facebook 3D photos on the desktop as well.

Do you have a compelling message to say? Or would you like to present a new product? Sharing it as an eye-catching Facebook 3D photo will make you stand out from the crowd.

How the Facebook 3D photos feature works

Since there are no camera lenses involved, Vectary generates a true depth map from the objects arranged on the 3D scene. Based on the relations of the objects to each other in the 3D space, a similar depth map is generated.
