Sunscreen


Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° virtual reality.

Wearing sunscreen here in southern California is extremely important, and I’m doing everything I can to remember to wear it every time I go outside.

Back to 3D with this composited live-action video, recorded with my Sony camcorder mounted on my image-splitter with a 5-inch stereo base that I call “The Beast”.
I got lazy compositing 2D videos, lately—correcting the keystone distortion then applying the proper barrel distortion for this image-splitter is a huge pain in the butt!

Created with Blender and Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13.

Surrounded


Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° virtual reality with spatial tracking audio.

Today’s task is very simple, but extremely important. I’m wanting to confirm whether or not I am ending up with true stereo sound that can be horizontally rotated in virtual reality. Listen carefully to the sounds in this video and help me determine whether or not that is happening.
The 2D video in this 360° scene was recorded with a Sony camcorder using 5.1 surround sound audio from the internal microphone.
Editing was done in Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13, the audio was rendered as a 5.1 surround sound WAVE file, then muxed with the video using FFmpeg and the Avanti GUI. The audio codec used in FFmpeg was AAC with 4 channels, which works for uploading to YouTube.
