In this paper, an unaffected interface for an immersive virtual reality environment using the motion templates method was proposed. We made background model with real photographs. The panoramic images were constructed using these photographs from real environment and texture-mapped to virtual sphere surround CAVE. As a user interface for this background model, the motion templates method of computer vision technologies is used. The computer vision module recognizes predefined user's gestures and sends commands to render module of CAVE system via internet using UDP protocols. Using this method, the users can manipulate the background model unaffectedly. This is efficient for VR applications like looking around a remote scene.
