When designing 3D applications it is necessary to find a compromise between cost (e.g. money, time) and achievable realism of the virtual environment. Reusing existing assets has an impact on the uniqueness of the application and creating high quality 3D assets is very time consuming and expensive. We aim for a low cost, high quality and minimal time effort solution to create virtual environments. This paper's main contribution is a novel way of creating a virtual meeting application by utilizing augmented spherical images for photo realistic virtual environments.
