The systems and methods described herein provide for displaying 3D objects alongside video or other content within a virtual reality environment. The user can see the video but can also see an object next to, behind, above, below, or positioned elsewhere in relation to the video. The user may be able to interact with that object. The object may or may not be related to the video. The object could be placed anywhere in the scene in relation to the video.
