I think I found a relatively easy way to cobble together a 360 degree video form a video I have. I know WHAT I have to do, I just need to figure out HOW to do it. I have a video of a football huddle. the Camera is pointing up from the center. I'd like to make this a partial snow globe effect. which is basically a 360 degree video horizontally, but there is no bottom/floor..
I am going to list the my goals here, and hopefully some of you can help me do it in the quickest and easiet way possible.
1. I clipped a segment from just before the huddle that was the upward view of the sky. I intend to size that so that it is the top 1/3 of the image.
2. I need to spilt the top and bottom of the video. Then I need to rotate the bottom so that it is now a top.
(so far, this is all stuff I can figure out/do, but I list it, because the way I figured out on my own might not be the most efficient way to do it)
3. Now, comes the fun part. I need to widen my video workspace from 1920 pixels to 3840 pixels. So far, I tried to adjust this in Edit>Project Settings, and it looks like the field is editable..but when I click in the field, it never lets me actually change anything.
4. Once I have that, it is my intention to composite the sky so that it runs the length of the entire 3840, and then just under it, 2/3 down, the top video clip and bottom rotated video clip composited together to fill the 3840. The bottom third of the video will just be black.
Once I do that and save the file, , I BELEIVE I should be able to open the video as either a 180 flat or 360 flat video in my VR Player (Skybox), and view it like a VR Video. I have had success making 180 degree videos within the 1920 space. But now I want to expand to playing with a video panoramic of 3840..
I don't believe this is going to be possible to do in Premiere Elements, MF.
Can I maybe do it in Photoshop?
Nope, wasn't able to open the file in Photoshop.
You may want to look into a program like CyberLink PowerDirector -- another program I've written books about.
