Dashwood 360VR New Feature Preview – Stabilization

If you have attended one of Dashwood’s recent event presentations at IBC (Amsterdam) or Profusion (Toronto) you have seen some cool new features currently in beta. Some of the new features include 360 stabilization from external AE trackers, direct support for back-to-back lens consumer 360 cameras, and instant nadir patching.

Here’s a tutorial on stabilizing using just the Reorient Sphere plugin in 360VR Express and After Effects’ free Mocha AE. (This same technique will work in stereo3D with 360VR Toolbox.)

Here’s Imagineer’s tutorial on a similar workflow using the Mocha Pro plugin – with a tech preview of Mocha VR.

Occupied VR’s “Cut-off” 360° Doc

Cut-Off VR is a 360° documentary experience that places the viewer in the middle of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s historic visit to Shoal Lake 40, a First Nation in Canada without access to clean water. Viewers also visit Cross Lake, where a state of emergency was declared after a wave of youth suicides.

Occupied VR produced the VR doc in cooperation with VICE Canada, NFB, & CFC. “The Dashwood set of tools has had a huge impact on our productions” said Occupied’s president and creative director J.Lee Williams. “It is a staple in our VR post pipeline.”

We are honoured that the Dashwood plugins were used in the making of this important film.
