Creating Tiny Planet Effectsgilliandarby
VideoStudio 2019 introduces new Tiny Planet and Rabbit Hole effects. Travel around the world and create a one-of-a-kind video. Transform your 360 video footage into a spherical panorama, better known as Tiny Planet or Rabbit Hole effect. This addition completes the VideoStudio 360 video editing suite and gives your audience a unique perspective in just a few clicks.
How to Create Tiny Planet and Rabbit Hole Effects
- With your 360 degree video on your timeline, just right click the clip, select 360 Video > 360 Video Conversion, and then either Equirectangular to Spherical Panorama or Dual Fisheye to Spherical Panorama.
- NOTE: If your 360 clip is in Single Fisheye format, you’ll first need to convert it to Equirectangular using Single Fisheye to Equirectangular, export the clip, and then drag that export into a new project in VideoStudio.
- You will see your original 360 video on the left, and the spherical panorama on the right, or better yet, a Tiny Planet. Tiny Planet is the default option selected. Scrub through the timeline to see your video play out.
- You can decrease the zoom level from the default of 80 to zoom out and this may help less of your edges getting clipped, and create a mode defined globe, and or play with the rotation if you want your subject to be standing on top of the world.
- To view or convert to a Rabbit Hole effect, select the option – this is essentially the reverse, where the frame wraps around your video.
- You can also keyframe your spherical panorama to make changes to your video as it plays. We can even toggle Tiny Planet to Rabbit Hole within the keyframing – at our second keyframe, let’s click Rabbit Hole, and as soon as this keyframe is reached, the effect will switch from Tiny Planet to Rabbit Hole.
- Once you’re done, click OK to return to the timeline. You’ll notice that the project dimensions are now square, as spherical panorama is a square video, and you can export your project in the usual way by using the Share tab.
