How Fader works
Fader lets you do more with your pictures and videos. Within minutes you build your very own immersive 360 experience. Bye bye boring slideshows.
Fader is free to use and currently in beta. If you have any problems or ideas to make it better: Get in touch and drop us a line.
You have a folder full of pics and videos? Great, just upload them into the system. You´d rather prefer playing around for a start? No worries: We have some demo footage to fiddle around with.
You can arrange your material in so-called scenes. Add as many as you like. Add text, sound, more images or interactive hotspots. And finally: Re-arrange your scenes so that everything looks splendid.
With a tip of your finger you unlock your story. You are now free to embed or praise your piece of art. Still feeling shy about it all? Just keep your story private and enjoy it all by yourself.
Fader is produced by Berlin-based startup Vragments with love and precision. We are programmers, journalists and storytellers. We have built VR projects in collaboration with The Center for Investigative Reporting and public broadcasters like Deutschlandfunk Kultur and rbb.
Fader is currently in beta and is co-funded by Google’s Digital News Initiative. It has been tested and approved by news organizations, universities and people with stories to tell.
