How does 360 Video work?

When trying to explain how 360 video works it can sometimes get very tricky.  So here is a quick demo on how 360 video works after you have take your shots.  Below highlights each step within the video above.

  1. First you start with the 360Heros 360 video gear using 6 GoPro Cameras and the wireless remote.  After shooting our content you can either remove the cameras from its holder or pull out the Micro SD cards individually.
  2. During this test we used six different cameras and shot 5 different takes.  Please note each camera was turned on at the same time using the cameras wireless remote so the videos would be synced.
  3. Now let’s start by working with the first Take.
  4. Each video was shot at 48 frames per second.
  5. Let’s take apart each video, frame by frame.
  6. Then arrange each video slide into a specific template pattern and wrap and distort each video frame into a flat spherical view to create one larger video frame.
  7. Next we do this to every frame within the video.  Using the larger stitched images we put everything back into one newer video.
  8. Then using the 360 video player we then wrap the video within the 360 players environment to see all around you on the iPad, iPhone, Android, web site or Oculus Rift using the accelerometer and gyro within these devices to react to your movements.
