Summary: 
We propose an image generation method for an immersive multi-screen environment that contains a motion ride. To allow a player to look around freely in a virtual world, a method to generate an arbitrary direction image is required, and this technology has already been established. In our environment, displayed images must also be updated according to the movement of the motion ride in order to keep a consistency between the player's viewpoint and the virtual world. In this paper, we indicate that this updating process can be performed by the similar method to generate looking-around images and the same data format can be applicable. Then we discuss the format in terms of the data size and the amount of calculations need to consider the performance in our display environment, and we propose new image formats which improve on the widely-used formats such as the perspective, or the fish-eye format.
