Aerial 360 VR in Palau

As the weather finally cleared it gave me the opportunity to continue with my 360 VR project.

360 VR by Drone

The above image shows both Koror and Nikko Bay in the center with the port of Malakal to the left and lighthouse channel on the right.

46 images stitched together in PTGui to create this equirectangular 360 Panorama.

 Tips for good VR production

-The above image was created by rotating the aircraft . Make sure you overlap the photos enough (by about 30%) for the software to find adequate control points

-Set the camera to manual exposure

-Avoid using a circular polarizer as this changes the exposure in parts of the image depending on the cameras orientation.

360 VR comes to Palau

360 VR Palau

Just out today is a new 360 VR film we helped produce here in Palau in collaboration with production company Parable VR.

Load it onto your phone or tablet or better yet watch it with VR goggles…

The film was shot over a period of 1 week using a 6 GoPro Hero 4 cluster. We used the Abyss 360 underwater housing available from 360Rize.

This website is an incredible resource for filming 360 VR content
