Charles Yeager shows us how to stitch 360° footage in After Effects using the SkyBox Studio 360/VR plugin. This method gives better control than the automatic stitching app that comes with the camera. Got some 2-camera 360° footage? Try it out yourself. Download the FREE project file below.
The 360° footage is shot with 2 Fisheye lenses at (3840 x 1920), 30 fps, and there is only one stitch line to deal with where the two lenses meet. This technique works with any 360° footage that is shot with 2 lenses, such as the Ricoh Theta, Kodak Pixpro, Nikon KeyMission 360, and LG 360.
