First 360 Degree Video On Youtube

Recommended Posts

Very cool....how in the world is that done I wonder? Not that I'd actually understand the answer if was given to me - LOL blush.gif


Well, if you remember a particular video called 'Too Small to Save' [ahem], you may remember it features a grassy field where you rotate in 360 degrees, and in the end even look up. Same thing, really. :)

Photographic pictures with a fisheye distortion (or spherical mapping) will do the trick very nicely (CS4 tutorial):


now, if you combine the principle with video - bingo:


it's not perfect though - if you look closely, you can see the corners/edges where they fold/glue the original footage into a sphere.

Hope that clears it up.
