The VR image not only has the watching characteristic of movie, the immersion of drama and the interaction of game, but also its unique conception. At present, a new type of narrative mode adapted to VR image features has not yet reached a consensus. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the importance of research on the user experience to VR image creation, so as to point out the urgency of using iterative thinking in creating works, at the same time, to explore the possibility of collaborative creation by utilizing the creators and users of intelligent tool. The key to construct a narrative systematic frame which accords with the VR image’s characteristics of visual, audition, touch, taste and touch is put forward. This paper adopts the methods of qualitative research, which includes desktop research and network user research as well as the quantitative researches, so as to conduct the validation studies about the habit, feeling, expectation and participation of users when they experience VR image. Finally, the conception of narrative systematic framework that is suitable for VR image and the suggestions for future research direction are put forward.
