What is a Quilt?

So what is a Quilt recording?

Quilts are an image and video standard that Looking Glass uses to capture 3D experiences.

Each section of the quilt or video represents a view of the 3D scene, with the bottom-left tile representing the leftmost view of the scene and the top-right tile representing the rightmost view of the scene.

This standard may be applied to any conventional image or video filetype. The most common are jpg, png, gif, for pictures and mp4, movand webm for videos.
