It's spatial rather than fixed point observational

360-degree videos have fixed camera location that only enables the view to pan left, right, up and down. Sometimes the lack of DOF (Degrees of Freedom) gives the view slight motion sickness because the relative motion doesn't match the perspective change.

Volumetric VR experience will open up the door for a super immersive video experience inside the metaverse that allows the user to feel inside the video, and this means much more visually stimulating storytelling beyond flat screens.

Videos and movies will provide better context in the future and it's going to change the experience so much that you will never go back to 2D on a TV.
