Less Than Perfect

Let’s talk about how we are going to record a video of the new VR game that we bought on sale on Cyber Monday.

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.

Trusting My Eyes

I’ve got some exciting news, guys. For the first time ever, I’m going to start trusting my eyes when I create my VR experiences, and I’m going to quit measuring anything. It’s going to be fun, especially if it works! I’ll be monitoring what I’m doing with a 3D TV, an Oculus Rift, and Gear VR with my fan-cooled Samsung Galaxy S8, as I’m doing in this video.

A Perfect Steady Camera

I think I found the perfect amount of weight to add to a small handheld camera for shooting stabilized video, but first let’s look at shooting video with no weight, then adding 2 lbs of weight, then 8 lbs. BTW, this video (on the right) is 24fps, which is inherently jerky, so I’ll also be doing this with cameras that shoot 30fps and 60fps.
