360º video report from NAB 2016 featuring an interview with Bill Roberts, Senior Director of Professional Video Product Management at Adobe Systems. Bill explains the range and depth of Adobe’s Professional Video software and their commitment to including VR functionality into their Creative Cloud apps. They’ve now added an integrated VR viewer into Premiere Pro which makes it real easy to see your equirectangular videos in 360° whilst editing in PremPro.
(Don’t forget to watch the 360° video using the Google Chrome browser at the highest resolution you can – ideally 4K 2160s. If it doesn’t run smoothly at 2160s come down to 1440s or 1080HD. Click your mouse on the video and drag left and right and up and down to see the scene in 360º spherical.)
Adobe’s integrated and cloud based applications make it easy to edit VR, do VFX and audio design all within the same suite. And of course, there’s also the tried and tested Photoshop for all your photos and graphics.
