I'm about to get a Xiaomi Mijia Sphere 360 camera and I'm trying to figure out which software I need in order to use it for my goal.
The goal is to record a volleyball game when the camera is fixed a little above the net level, close to one of the net ends, and it will be positioned such that each lens is facing a different side of the court (i.e. a different team).
After the game I would like to edit the video on my PC and produce a new "normal" rectilinear video that sorts of following the ball and show only the relevant parts of the game. In the beginning team A is serving the ball so I want my video to zoom in on that part and show the guy who is serving. Then I want the video to zoom out as the ball is flying towards the court of team B. Then team B is catching the ball and passing it on its side so I want to zoom on that part, and at some point team B would try to attack team A so I'd like to zoom out a little and see the guy who is hitting the ball from team B and the court of team A.
I'm doing this in order to document my wife's league games, and I hope that by watching it after the game she and her teammate will be able to improve their game. For example, by examining the arrangement of the defending team when a player is hitting from position 1, vs. position 2, vs. position 3, etc, the attacking player can learn where the defense holes are and improve her skill in finding them during the game. The point-of-shooting - right above the net, should be perfect for getting a nice view over both court sides.
I know that Xiaomi has a PC tool for converting the double fisheye video capture into an equirectangular panoramic video. So that's the first step. But I'm not sure what should be the next step. I assume that I need a special video editing software, but I don't know which one gives the functionality that I need. I'm looking for something affordable and relatively easy to use, since this is just a hobby for me. The most important thing is that it should allow me to do the sort of editing that I want to do - to change the projection into rectilinear while cropping just the parts of the full view that I'm interested in and to change the crop along the timeline - so it will look as if the camera is moving from one spot to another (like following the ball from one side of the court to the other)..
Does anyone have a recommendation for a software for this task?
Well, have no idea about the application Cupix. But it seems good and free by searching on Google. Wanna share you a free 360 video editing app free for smartphone, VeeR Editor, allowing you to edit 360 videos or photos on the go. Hope this will help your first virtual tour . BTY, your works are welcomed to upload on our platform VeeR VR, a global sharing platform for 360 photos and videos.
Insta360 dropped its new camera, the ONE many have been hankering after. Compared to other consumer 360 cameras, Insta360 ONE goes 11 on fanciness, featuring bullet time, FreeCapture, little planet mode, beauty camera, etc, each a staple for viral 360 posts. Here is the Insta360 ONE review by VeeR VR. Hope this will help.
To create great panoramic photos, the tool is very important. So here will introduce some good panorama stitching software, and we've already made some tutorials to help the better using. Like the PTGui , a professional photo editing tool, I think many people know of this. Besides, there is also great alternatives software, like the KRPano, we have a tutorial about how to create panoramic photos with KRPano; Hugin is also a very powerful open source panoramic image creator and editor. Also the Pano2VR ultimate user guide, clearly show you how to create a Two-Node Mini-Tour.
It’s my first time getting to grips with a 360 camera. I have just bought a Samsung Gear 360 2017 camera.
I’m looking to take numerous 360 images of the inside of a new building and to create a virtual tour.
I have had a look online and come across a web based application called Cupix.
Has anyone used it? Is there anything better out there? I don’t mind paying as long as it’s under £100.
Thanks in advance.
