Quick Overview

A powerful new workflow tool to simplify VR 360˚ post production. With the capability to I/O camera data from other packages (C4D, Unity, Maya, Nuke etc) Canvas 360 works with your current setup. Complimentary to Adobe Skybox and MochaVR, Canvas 360 unifies After Effects full potential in 360˚ Post Production. Save time and money, make better VR!

CANVAS 360™ is a workflow inside of Adobe After Effects enabling users the ability to composite 360˚ footage/renders together with traditional After Effects layers and non-360˚ footage/renders. Built on a complex architecture under the hood, it offers a surprisingly simple and coherent interface to make ease of almost any 360˚ task. The workflow is complete with highly customized tools that work seamlessly alongside After Effects’ powerful motion graphics & compositing tools. CANVAS 360™ also facilitates the integration of 3D packages by merging any tracked or animated After Effects camera into a 360˚ project. Designed for users to create 360˚ experiences using conventional visual effects tools, CANVAS 360™ functions are familiar and easy to learn.

3D Camera Tracking & 360˚ Stabilization

Exclusive 3D camera tracking and stabilization tools. 

With CANVAS 360™ʼs user-friendly interface, users can now utilize After Effectsʼ powerful AE Camera Tracker to track their 360° media. CANVAS 360™ seamlessly integrates the tracking data into the userʼs 360° composition, including data from third-party match-moving (camera tracking) packages. The camera automatically stabilizes when integrating the track, thanks to the tracking data. The user can then adjust and save the stabilized camera before outputting.

360º Compositing

CANVAS 360™ assets together with traditional non-360 assets.

CANVAS 360™ extends After Effectsʼ canvas to 360° while introducing a host of exclusive tools. Whether 360° or non-360°, live-action or CGI, CANVAS 360™ brings everything together into a single 360° timeline, supporting usersʼ favorite AE tools and plugins, as they navigate through their 360° scene. Add localized mattes and effects to easily rotoscope, color correct, or blur a region of interest in your 360° footage and renders. Add logos and layers to a specified perspective using the same technique.
