Here’s another attempt at removing fisheye distortion from the Weeview SID 3D camera’s 3D video using the Deform filter in Magix Movie Studio, for proper VR viewing. This time, I shot the video with close to a 60 degree hFOV.
It’s that time of the year here in the San Gabriel Valley—time to dust off the bicycles!
The composited 3D video was recorded with a cheap Canon camcorder and a homemade 3D image-splitter. The lossless workflow using the UtVideo codec shouldn’t introduce any noticeable recompression artifacts.
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.
There were very few people on the beach. Tuesdays are like that in Huntington Beach, California, this time of the year. So, I took my Weeview 3D camera up on the pier, but didn’t have a way to monitor what I was shooting, and ended up with way too much sky in the shots, so I cropped off most of the sky for this 360 3D project.
Viewable in 2D or 3D.
This is my first FOU (full resolution over/under) 360 3D video with spatial tracking audio (wear headphones to experience it). The static background was created with Blender, the composited 3D video was recorded with a Weeview 3D camera (most of the barrel distortion was removed with the Deform filter in Magix Movie Studio 14 Platinum), and the audio was recorded with a Zoom H2n and mixed with Reaper. Everything was then processed with FFmpeg (using myFFmpeg).
It’s time to play with the big boys! You can download and watch this HSBS 3D video (recorded with a Fujifilm W3 3D camera and a Sony TD30 3D camcorder) on the free Bigscreen Beta app. We’ll use our Oculus Rift, but we can also watch it with our Samsung Gear VR when that version is available, “soon”, as promised.
BTW, you can also download and watch a HSBS 3D video with any app that requires or can process the HSBS format.
