360 video muvizu export

Post by zeke365 » Sun Jan 12, 2020 10:57 pm

So I have been experimenting with muvizu 360 video for a while, and want to share a couple of things, first you should before I was exporting 360 video in 1920x1960 at 18000 bitrate (let me know if that too high) even though it said it was 1920x1080p resolution so you do lose 120 pixels not sure why and I was having trouble figuring out how to export 4k which is 3840x2160 which in 360 video translates to 3840x1920 video. And I was having muvizu crashing at 40 second clip in that resolution.
So what I did is made it 15 second clip and exported the video in 3840x1920 360 video and it worked, so I think it best for those working 360 videos is film small clips no more than 20 seconds in this resolution otherwise it will crash, second it should only be on one camera when doing this because I think multi cameras mess with it for some odd reason and makes it crash. I've already exported both files successfully so I just wanted to share on the info to others wondering if they could get the higher resolution in 360 video without it crashing. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

I was told with Windows 7 it is not even possible :(
I don't have 10 and was wondering if there was an alternative way to export 360 in 4k

It’s still possible with windows 7 but what I had is powderdirector 16 which allows you to edit 360 video. You just need the editing software to do so and it’s the cheapest option. And just switch muvizu to 360 mode if you have the expansion and export the movie. In the tutorial section I will go through how to do this.

This video was created all on windows 7.

Um, that video is not in 360 for me :(
Update yeah it is, was on a browser that didn't recognize 360.
This is not true 4k its just HD rendered at 4k.
Very poor quality :(

Yes I know it poor quality and I had no idea what I was doing, Yes I know it in HD, the point is you can create 360 video on windows 7 with the right software.

The 4k thing is something I m experimenting with, I m just sharing the results of my multi tests trying to make muvizu in 360 4k work for me. When I was having multi crashes at the same time.

Now here what I did recently with 360 video Yes it not 4k I know but found a couple of tricks with it, its still 1920x960. and still in HD if you want a more proper 360 video or Vr video since there interchangeable. https://youtu.be/Y5fMyF32XyA What are you afraid of 360 which I did on windows 10.

360 video is still fairly new territory so there not a lot info on how to do it So I have to experiment with it see what works and what does not.

Here a step by step guide and for those reading this thread I must remind you these are experiments that I have been testing out on muvizu and cannot guarantee they will work on your PC.

This a scene I have been doing most my test as of right and this what looks like.

Intro: Image

Step 1
You need to enable 360 video, Go to tools and scoll down to 360 video and click it.

Image

Step 2: It should have changed your cameras to something like this and Yes I enlarged them to help show the point of change

Image

Step 3: Make sure only one camera is being used to film (it will cause issues otherwise, I have had multi crashes when trying to do this in 4k render so trust me when I say just one camera to film for no more than 20 seconds.

Image

Step 4: Make video

Image

Step 5: Change the resolution to 3840x2160 then render your scene.

Image

Step 6: Enter into your software and edit it how you like and you will see here it render as 3840x1920

Image

It unknown to me why you lose it but you do so if you take 2160-1920 = You lose 240 pixels for some odd reason. If anyone can explain that that be great but I thought I offer a little tutorial of how I did this with my multi test I did and I hope helps someone.
