Using A Zoom H4n As An On-Camera DSLR Mic. The microphones built into portable digital recorders typically sound pretty good, and if you use a recorder to capture the sound for a DSLR video shoot, you may be tempted to mount the recorder directly on top of your camera and use it as an on-camera mic.

Using A Zoom H4n As An On-Camera DSLR Mic

But here’s the problem… The mic input on a DSLR camera needs a mic-level audio signal, and the headphone output on a portable digital recorder is line-level. Mic-level signals are very low, and line-level signals are very loud. If you just used a normal 1/8″ to 1/8″ mini-plug cable to connect the two, you’re likely going to get a nasty sounding distorted recording. Prise en charge des processus VR.

Upload 360 degree videos - YouTube Help. How to make any photo work as a 360 photosphere on Facebook. Facebook recently rolled out the ability for anyone to upload a 360 panorama or photosphere that can be clicked through on desktop, viewed with certain VR headsets, or viewed by moving your device around on mobile.

How to make any photo work as a 360 photosphere on Facebook

Flickr introduced a similar feature last December when it launched Flickr VR. I’ve been using that to upload 360 panoramic screenshots from ActiveWorlds, so was looking forward to doing the same on Facebook. Unfortunately I quickly discovered Facebook wasn’t automatically recognizing the screenshots from AW. Some googling revealed that Facebook requires images to have this meta tag to work: <GPano:ProjectionType>equirectangular</GPano:ProjectionType> I can view that this is missing from the raw metadata in Photoshop, but Photoshop doesn’t let you directly edit the raw meta data.

Congrats! As a sidenote, if you’re interested in capturing 360 photos in the real world, new versions of the Android camera app have the feature built in. Convert Panorama. EleVRant: 360 Stereo Consumer Cameras? There’s a bunch of mono spherical cameras coming to the consumer market soon, with automated stitching and easy workflow.

eleVRant: 360 Stereo Consumer Cameras?

But what about stereo? Why are there no consumer stereo spherical cameras, and what might we look forward to seeing once they do exist? What will be the standard for consumer VR video capture? Spoiler: the ultimate conclusion is that 1. stereo is hard, 2. sacrifices must be made, and 3. that it will look less like this… …and more like this: But this is research, so we need to go at it from the direction of most efficient camera setup based on geometry and technology and algorithms, no matter how much I am tempted by an a priori “everything is phones, everything will be phones, phones.” 1.

First, let me reiterate that Mono is easy. With stereo, you cannot simply make the perfect calibration for your camera setup. Some cases are theoretically possible to deal with algorithmically. You must make choices and there’s no right answer. 2. It is not very consumer-like at all. 3. Adobe Premiere Pro CC tutorials. VR video editing goes meta with Adobe’s Project Clover.

Tracking 360º Equirectangular Clips in PFTrack.

To use equirectangular 360º footage in PFTrack, you will need a Spherical Track node.

Tracking 360º Equirectangular Clips in PFTrack

Create the node and connect it to the clip. The Spherical Track has one input, which requires a 360º equirectangular image. The node’s six outputs represent one camera for each planar face of a cube map generated from the input panorama. One of the consequences of 360º panoramas is that there is no ‘behind the camera’ so the operator holding the camera is always visible in the clip. To prevent this from interfering with the tracking, you are going to create a mask to exclude the operator. Click the Mask button to open the mask panel. Leave the Feature Tracking parameters unchanged. Click Start to start tracking. Once tracking is completed you can review the tracks by playing or scrubbing through the clip. Now it’s time to convert the tracker motion into camera motion. Click Marquee and select some features that have been tracked on the ground. Making360.

Facebook's Head of Immersive Imaging, Eric Cheng, posted a detailed article about editing and uploading photos to Facebook.

Uploading: Facebook recognizes 360-degree photos based on the EXIF metadata. Specifically, it looks at the Make and Model. If the Make and Model correspond to a known 360-degree camera, it will present it as a 360-degree image.Some editing programs can strip the metadata. Facebook recommends the exiftool program to reinsert the correct metadata, which allows batch processing (editing a group of files instead of having to edit each file individually).If you stitched the image yourself or used an unrecognized camera, you can still get the photo recognized as a 360-degree image by using the exiftool.

Editing: For editing photos, e.g. cloning out the tripod, you need a panorama editor.
