Bringing great-looking video experiences to VR can be challenging, and container apps are only half the battle. 3D-180 video allows for higher-quality stereoscopic experiences with fewer resources spent on production. We'll cover best practices for creating 3D-180 video for distribution and playback in Oculus Go through a live workshop.Read More
The monoscopic bullet time video created by the Insta360 ONE camera can easily be converted to a 3D video by showing it separately to each eye with a time offset (1 frame). Because the camera is in motion (mostly) horizontally, a time delay creates a virtual left and right eye's point of view.Read More
Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 New York City Drone Film Festival (and to all of the folks who submitted)! I was unable to attend the film festival in person this year, but was honored to be on the jury and to see all of the submissions. The quality of drone-focused videos is going up each year, as is the diversity of content.
The winners are all embedded on a page over at NYCDFF's website, which includes a list of submissions.
TL;DR: Use ProRes, or command-line ffmpeg to get 6K into H.264 outside of standard level specs.
The problem with trying to encode and upload videos in 6K is that it's hard to encode 6K video using highly-compressed codecs that are upload friendly. H.264 is currently the standard video codec used to compress video for Internet sharing, and its highest performance level doesn't support video resolutions higher than 4K. Here are two possible solutions.Read More
If Premiere Pro is playing clips back too quickly, check your Audio Hardware settings. If I set my Default audio input to "Microphone (Rift Audio)" (I have an Oculus Rift connected), playback is about twice too fast, and I can't get play it at normal speed. If I set Default Input back to "No Input", playback returns to 1x real time.
I hate this stuff.
Simple video editing can be frustrating for content creators whom aren't familiar with the process, and even people who work with video every day can struggle to find the right tools to accomplish quick edits. One issue is that most video editors force video re-encoding upon export, which results in potentially-long render times as well as degradation in quality. Here's how to do simple editing without re-encoding your final video.Read More
