Once you've assembled your footage on the timeline Mark goes through the subtle ways you can edit titles, transitions, and stitches. Adding transitions, effects, and titles can help your 3D video shine. He then shows you how to properly export this footage using 4K settings that will work the best with Google's YouTube viewer system.
- [Mark] All right, now that our video is totally edited,…we're gonna export it using Compressor.…I've already created a 4K 3D setting.…That's why I like Compressor,…'cause you can set up specific settings for specific jobs.…It's set to go to the 3D Output folder here.…If we look closer at the video setting,…it is 4096 by 2160.…That's the maximum allowable pixels for 4K.…That's what we want to give our thing…a fighting chance to be as sharp as possible…when it gets squeezed and compressed onto YouTube.…
So I'm gonna drop that on there,…and there's our square image.…Give it a second to load there.…That's what we're gonna get.…Now that's not completely square anymore.…It's a little bit stretched out.…That's okay.…YouTube knows what to do with that,…and the folks at Google tell me…that the more pixels we have in there the better,…and with the right codec, it'll know the shape to make it…to look proper in your goggles.…So now we hit Start Batch,…and we give it some time to export.…Now this is about a minute and 20 seconds long,…
This course explores some of the current camera options available to the 360° filmmaker, their relative strengths and weaknesses, possible applications of the 360° format, in-depth workflows to get you from shooting to finished project, and the best methods for sharing and viewing your 360° videos. Mark W. Gray helps you assemble and edit a final, polished 360° video using Final Cut Pro, but once you have mastered the basics, you can apply the lessons to your own preferred tools and workflows.
