Question : how to generate 360 picture from 360 video

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

As it is very easy to grab pictures from a video with tools like VLC or Media Player Classic like those one :

is there a way to transform them to generate 360 pictures uploadable on Facebook for example ?

 

Freeware are welcome !

 

best regards

Hum,

 

I've answered it by myself....

What I wanted to do is that ;

After testing it was impossible with Symax360 Video Converter and (for now) thru GIMP (even i'm sure that i just need the right expression in mathmap...)...

 

We need 2 things ;

  • an equirectangular picture with a ratio 2:1 ratio with at maximum 6000 x 3000 pixels
  • the Exif XMP data “ProjectionType=equirectangular”

How to proceed ?
Pictures from AMK100S can be processed by Symax360 Video Converter but to use a picture from a video you have to process it first also with Symax360 Video Converter. Then you can use Exiftool to inject the data “ProjectionType=equirectangular”

 

In french a systhesis on how to manipulate AMK100s data  :
