    Hello everyone,

    I would like to share some insight and a feature I found in the Corel Video Studio 2018. I stumbled upon a very useful way to use the Equirectangular
    or 360° software feature.

    This has created many opportunities for me as a video creator. Especially with Realtors. All you need to accomplish this is Corel Video Studio, HD photos that have a wide objective view with depth so you can manually create presets that will automatically pan-tilt and zoom following presets within the stock images.

    Once you’ve rendered or produce each preset virtual tour from a single image then combine each clip or segment on your time line add some lower third banners to each of the photos so the Realtors can use them for property specific data and then produce the entire series as I have and called mine 24/7 360° Virtual Open house tours.

    If you are not into the marketing aspect of this hidden feature you can make your own scenic tours of places you’ve visited including major cities and national wonders like rock formations or mountain scapes virtually endless fun and practical applications for this dynamic feature that’s already on your 360° Corel software menu.

    Be creative and reach for the stars!

    I’ve completed my videos I want for a DVD. I need to know how to create the DVD menu, which options I have to choose from and how to get them to link up with each window and play when selected on a DVD player. The youtube video shows an “Author” option at the top of the screen but mine doesn’t show that. I have Pinnacle Studio 21 Ultimate.

      Hello Michael,

      By default, the Author tab is disabled in favour of a workflow where you export the project to MyDVD, which has an expanded toolset for DVD creation. You can still do everything in Pinnacle Studio though! Just enable the Author tab by going to Setup > Control Panel > Legacy Options, and enable Legacy Author Mode.

      Hello Tormod,

      Your maximum filesize depends on the email service provider you and the recipient use. In general it is best to keep your files under 10 Mb, as that is small enough to guarantee just about any email provider will receive the file. Some are a little bigger, but in general the maximum attachment size on an email is quite small.

      For reference, even an SD video (480×270 resolution) has a bitrate of around 600-700 kbps, meaning you would only be able to fit two minutes of video into 10 Mb!

      If physical media such as a DVD or USB drive are not an option, we would suggest moving files that have to be larger than this using cloud-based file storage or transfer services, such as DropBox, Box, OneDrive, or iCloud, to name a few.

      Hope this helps!
