Google released a new tool that promises to make the life of a video editor easier. Meet the VR180. The cameras allow creators to shoot three-dimensional, immersive photos and videos using affordable cameras that are small enough to fit in your pocket.
Google blog said, “It will convert your VR180 footage into a standardized format so you can edit it with leading editing tools like Adobe Premiere and then re-inject the appropriate metadata for publishing.”
VR180 Creator currently offers two features for VR videos. “Convert for Publishing” takes raw fisheye footage from VR180 cameras like the Lenovo Mirage Camera which sells for $299 and is presently sold out, and converts it into a standardized projection. This can be edited with the video editing software creators already use, like Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro. “Prepare for Publishing” re-injects the VR180 metadata after editing so that the footage is viewable on YouTube or Google Photos in 2D or VR.
With affordable VR180 cameras and the simplified editing process provided by VR180 Creator, you can capture your memories in VR whether it is giving your viewers a tour of your home or bringing your viewers on an adventure with you.
