There has been an increased interest of using head mounted displays (HMD) like the Oculus Rift to immerse the user into virtual reality (VR). For the immersion into VR to be complete, 3D is needed. I will be discussing various aspects of 3D panoramic images and video, the hardware setup I am using, the process I am using to get my final result, various methods of viewing 3D, the difference between what I have achieved and the ideal result. I will also present some possibilities.
Let’s face it, 360 degree video is not just a toy or a cool trend, but a real new emerging market.

Post-processing starts with preproduction
To produce a professional 360º video piece follows similar steps as a traditional film production, and deviates from it in new and to be explored ways. Joergen Geerds from Freedom360 will outline the different steps in his presentation: from script writing to storyboarding, selecting the right equipment to shoot a scene and capture good sound, directing and pre-visualisation, stitching the raw material into a good source for editing in Adobe Premiere or AfterEffects to follow the story outline, as well as preparing the final edit for the various media or screens it will be deployed to.
