Hi
Is it possible to create a Video file from Pano2VR
I have tried to use the flat picture, and use it it Final Cut, Zoom and make a movement.But it is not the same as "drag" and auto rotate in pano2 VR. a client wanna use some panoramas I gonna produce but they wanna include some panoramas inside a video production. Is this possible, or any other way to do this the best way.

Thanks / Michael

Pano2vr does not create movie outputs like MP4's. Although, I think you can do the reverse: use your already created MP4's inside panoramas.

I think you can Google Pano2movie. It produces a VERY large file.

Some smart phones can create movies. Even some point and shoot cameras creates movies. Put the smart phone on a tripod and zoom in to fill the movie screen. Our Samsung Galaxy S4 takes HD 16x9 movies. Audio might be an issue if you have a lot of noise in the room.

Aah Thanks for the tip :D
That is what I need. Gonna try that demo, and buy it later, when production comes closer.
Perfect.
Also I just found out as a "work around", at least with the Mac, the built in Quicktime player
works OK. to record the screen and gives a good output.

But the Pano2movie really gives freedom to control a smooth motion.
Fantastic. At least I know now where to find the tools when I need them
to export my Pano2vr to movies.

I have already said that the best way - it ....

Best way - creating the video from panoramas via Adobe After Effects (with Horizon plugin)

I'm not sure how a 600$ piece of software and a 99$ plugin is the best way?! It's just another way, albeit an expensive one.

Blender(which is free and used by leading movie studios) will allow you to totally script your camera, pan, tilt, zoom with keyframes and tweening, and output to a movie file. Is there a learning curve? Sure there is, just like any other piece of software you've never used.

Download a copy of Blender

And here is a tutorial for doing what you want.

Snagit from Techsmith,

Not the best compression on the video but it works.

Afetr Effects - the best way, and he always The best ... allows you to manipulate not only the panoramic textures, and other media content for professional post-production

For small works are not forced going to great sacrifices and acquire a front-end version. Always available exist cheap old boxed version of the product, which can be purchased for "funny money", and it will be enough ... The money you have already reimbursed after finishing this video project
you're not out there looking for... look on ebay
