R.I.P. 360 3D


(Stereoscopic 3D)

360 3D has officially died.
To save space in the rapidly growing 3D cemetery, we buried it in the same grave as YT3D.

Hopefully, I have solved the mystery of the distorted stereo microphone problem.
This is a 360 3D audio presentation.

Sorry about the audio repeat at the end. I accidentally added an additional track in Reaper, again. I hate when that happens. 😦

BTW, the distortion is still with us. 😦 😦 😦

Ready, Set, Rotate?


Unfortunately, spatial tracking audio isn’t working in this 360 3D video, and I’m not sure why. Perhaps I didn’t properly mix the tracks.
I’m using a Sony ECMCS3 microphone attached to my shirt collar, plugged in to a Tascam DR-05 digital recorder to record my voice. A Zoom H2n microphone in MS/XY four channel mode is positioned just above the 3D camera.

8K Video Rendering Times and File Sizes


Let’s check the rendering times and file sizes when we create an 8K 7680×1920 30 fps lossless AVI, using the free Ut video codec, then convert that to an 8K 3840×3840 60Mbps 30fps mp4 with myFFmpeg.
The goal is to eliminate recompression artifacts.
This is the video we are analyzing: https://youtu.be/DDFFXFfyHkU

Let’s Do It Again!


Since I made a mistake with Reaper during the creation of my last 360 3D project, let’s create another one!
We want to render an 8K 7680×1920 30 fps lossless AVI, using the free Ut video codec, then convert that to an 8K 3840×3840 60Mbps 30fps mp4 with myFFmpeg.

No Screws and Wrong SATA Cable


I bought a 4TB internal hard drive to use strictly for video editing, but it didn’t have any mounting screws, and I bought the wrong SATA cable.

This is my first official 8K 360 3D video created by rendering a lossless FSBS AVI out of Magix Movie Studio Platinum 14, then converting it to a 60Mbps FOU mp4 with myFFmpeg.

I Can’t Breath!


I can’t breath through my nose right now, but hopefully the huge bag of meds I got from the doctor will help… and soon!

Moving on with the “trusting my eyes” series, I shot the 3D video in this 360 3D scene with a Canon VIXIA HF R400 camcorder and my image-splitter with a 5-inch stereo base. I’m not happy with the video quality, so I will go back to using my 4K Sony camcorder for my image-splitter recordings.
