Super cool 360º music video created using SkyBox Studio. We suspect this might become a trend!

Author Notes

This piece was created by Mettle who also happens to have created SkyBox!

- We used the prerelease version of SkyBox Studio for this gig
- Master SkyBox Edit Comp, total number of layers = 797.  Main reason, you need to consider at least 4 views at any given  time and have things happening in each view.
- Pre-comps (6) each had another 80 layers or so (on the average)
- We used a beta of AE CC2015, the multi-threading work the AE team did did really paid off on a project of this complexity
- Most work was done on a 2011 Macs equipped with 48 GB of RAM, SSD’s and SSD/HD’s with NVIDIA K5000.
- We usually ran AE,PS , Illustrator and AME all at the same time and went back forth frequently.
- For workflow, I tend to keep a "SkyBox Viewer Comp" active all the time to check what things like in youtube 360  format
- Personally Prefer to work in theSkyBox Edit comp with a 4 port view… 3 views on the left and one main view in the centre. I go back and forth between Active Camera view and Custom View 1
