Here Comes The Heat! (UHD)


Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° Virtual Reality.

I’m unable to find a working solution for converting these huge XAVC files to anything smaller, so for now, if I want to upload UHD 360 3D VR to YouTube, I’ll just have to deal with the long upload times. If the uploading doesn’t crash, then there’s really no problem, right? Perhaps with a little luck, MAGIX, who just bought the majority of the Sony video editing products, will eventually update the UHD rendering options, but based on past experiences with this sort of thing, I wouldn’t hold your breath for that!

You can seldom believe the weather report on TV unless it predicts “another day of sunshine in southern California”, but if they are right this time, we might have some record-breaking heat coming to West Covina, California next week!

This 360° 3D virtual reality video was created with Blender and Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13.
The background is the desktop of my ultrawide LG monitor on my HP ENVY 750-220 Desktop PC.
The 3D video was recorded with a Sony TD30.

RAM It!


Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° Virtual Reality.

I bought 16 GB of RAM from crucial.com for my HP ENVY 750-220 Desktop PC.
Here’s what happened before and after I installed it.

This 360° 3D virtual reality video was created with Blender and Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13.
The background photo was shot with a cell phone, and the 3D video was recorded with a Sony TD30.

Background Check

This Google Earth background shot has a 40 degree hFOV, and I wrapped it almost all the way around a 360 degree sphere. I reduced the amount of net deviation by about 1/9th of what I typically use (3.3%).
What can I say?—I’m having fun and I love to tinker around. 🙂

Horse

I walked down the horse trail next to our apartment building to shoot a couple of photos of the horses in the West Covina Equestrian Center, and I’ll let you watch this video if you want to hear what happened. :/
The two photos were shot with a Fujifilm W3 3D camera, and the 3D video was recorded with a Sony TD30.
I used Blender and Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13 to create this 360 3D VR scene.

June Gloom

In this 360° 3D VR video, I explain the June Gloom we occasionally get around here.
You can rotate the view and look at three photos of the June Gloom before it burned off this afternoon in Bonelli Park.

The photos were shot in 3D with a Fujifilm W3 3D camera, then wrapped around 120 degree portions of a sphere in a Blender Spherical Stereo project. The 3D video was then added to the scene in Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13.

Looking For RAM

North, south, east and west views of a parking lot, while looking for RAM for my new computer.
Yup, that’s another cubic illusion of my (dirty) 1996 Ford Explorer SUV.
Janice chose the hot pink background.
Rotate the view straight up or straight down. Do the cubes appear to be 3-dimensional?
