Autopano Video - Stereo Export
This tutorial explains how to create a stereoscopic (3D) 360 video with Autopano Video 2.3+.
The idea is to create one video for left eye and one video for right eye. After, we just have to merge the two videos in one.
The 3D 360 video can be watched with and Oculus Rift or HTC Vive device.
The solutions used to create this tutorial are:
- Autopano Video Pro 2.3+
- Autopano Giga 4+
For the first steps (synchronization, stitching, stabilization and color correction), do exactly the same as you would do for non-stereoscopic videos, with all the source videos into a same project.
To generate a stereoscopic video, we need to render the videos separately, one for the left eye and one for the right eye. Click on the Stereo button of the control bar to open the stereoscopic settings.
From here, you can assign each source video, or side of source video, to an eye and how the video will be rendered.
- Check "Stereo mode" to enable stereo rendering of your video.
- Video Assignment: Each source video can be assigned in 5 different ways:
- Left and right: the source will be used in both left and right renderings. This option is especially useful for zenith and nadir cameras.
- Left only: the source will be used only in the rendering for the left eye.
- Right only: the source will be used only in the rendering for the right eye.
- Vertical split: the left side of the source will be used in the rendering for the left eye, and the right side of the source will be used in the rendering for the right eye.
- Horizontal split: the top side of the source will be used in the rendering for the left eye, and the bottom side of the source will be used in the rendering for the right eye.
- Rendering: Select how you want to render the stereoscopic video:
- Over / Under
- Apply: Click on Apply for your settings to take effect, shown in the preview (below)
The recommended output is over/under, with the left eye on over and the right eye under.
And that's it! Now you just have to render your stereoscopic 360° video.
