360° HDR timelapse video

by aaronpriest » Fri Jul 12, 2013 10:54 pm

I don't know if this belongs in this forum thread or not, but feel free to move it to the correct thread if I mis-posted. I wanted to share a 360° HDR spherical timelapse I took with a Panoneed and two Promote Controls and then displayed with KRPano. I'm hoping that PanoTour Pro 2.0 will include some of these video features to make it easier in the future than the hand coding I did for much of this. The video at the top of the article explains how I configured the Panoneed and both Promote Controls; the resulting timelapse is near the end of the video. At the bottom of the article is the KRPano interactive video. I also documented some of the limitations I experienced in my article. I'd welcome any feedback on getting the KRPano video to look better. I'm not finding much advice for resolution, bitrate, etc. for 360° videos.

Enjoy!

Thank you for the video that brakes down the entire rig set up. And quite a rig you've got! Curious as to what you have in mind for your next project. :)

Well, for starters more night timelapses with full sky star trails like I attempted before. Now that I have virtually unlimited camera power, haha! I will need to get an 8mm fisheye or shave a Nikon 10.5mm (preferably--wider aperture for stars) so I can shoot a sphere with less photos to get smaller gaps in the trails. If I can ever get bulb ramping figured out with everything else then I want to shoot a 24hr spherical timelapse. At the moment bulb ramping doesn't work with remote triggering though, so it will take some creativity to get that working. Things go slowly for me as I've had very little funding to do all this yet, so I pick away at things a little at a time. But it's a lot of fun!!!

This was my first public demonstration of full sky star trails, I've done several more but they really weren't worth sharing (bad weather, overcast skies, moon movement, dew/frost, etc.), haha!

wow very impressive work! nicely done Aaron! I'd love to see the star trails run through as a 360 video. I'd think you could loop the video or at the very least slow down the frame rate so that you'd see the movement of the trails :) thanks again for sharing! can't wait to try something similar!

The example I posted above was only a 2 second clip at 24fps, or 4 seconds at 12fps. It didn't look very good when I looped it. But I'll give it another whirl soon! I've been working on a different project for the past several weeks that is still uploading at the moment.
