360 VIDEO


WHAT IS 360 VIDEO?


360 FOOTAGE
GET EVERY ANGLE

360 Video is the process of recording video footage with a special camera that films in 360 degrees. These cameras utilize multiple lenses for capturing footage or images simultaneously in different directions, with the footage or images being stitched together in post, similar to how panoramas are constructed. This footage can be easily ported to web-based platforms that support 360, such as Facebook or Youtube, but can also be viewed from within a virtual reality headset, making the experience more immersive.

Many of these devices can be paired to a user's phone via an app for remote recording - this feature helps keep the user out of the shot. Monopods to elevate the camera are also available.

Footage from these cameras can be edited just like any other video footage in a video editing software. Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro both allow users to toggle between panoramic and 360 view while working with 360 footage in their editors (an immersive 360 view is visible within the Oculus if editing on a Visualization Studio workstation).
