SRP 360 Experiences
Thank you for exploring the world of VR with us. It is truly exciting to be able to share our findings and work together on a project that will redefine the SRP experience. We will take you there, guided by a vibrant story and unique experiences that will transport hearts and minds.
We have given this process a lot of collective thought and want to lay out our findings to you to best explain the process and set expectations for the approach we will outline below. Over the last two days, we've created a prototype working demo and have discussed our methods with leading professionals in AZ and throughout the world. In our approach, we will enhance the production quality everywhere and show you how we keep it mindful of the budget to build and expand these moments in the future.
Proof of Concept
Confidence is key. In order to assure ourselves and your team that we can implement a superb workflow for this project, we made a minimum viable product version using our existing and over-nighted hardware. For this, we repurposed the 360 camera we use to take HDRI maps for CG integration and recorded 360 video. The stitching happens in the camera and it is a simple process to render as a high-quality stitched final. No manual process.
Adobe Creative Suite
The latest versions of Adobe software come with some VR support built-in. We can edit, playback to headsets, and reposition. Titles can be generated in After Effects as well as composite-work.
Skybox Suite Plugins
Skybox Suite Plugins
These packages allow for playback, compositing, and enhancements to the footage within the Adobe Suite.
Higher Production Value
Lets go beyond the basics. We think the experiences can be enhanced to spectacular result! We plan to light our scenes and remove any visible set equipment in post. Bring on the sky replacements and all manner of enhancements. Lets to 3D type, color correction, and 3D sound design. Lets make an experiences like no other.
to get the highest quality vision on screen, lets look at the tools we can upgrade to and push the bar in VR immersive technology.
The Camera: The OZO
Behold, the top of the line, all in one camera by Nokia. It has 8 2K professional quality cameras, 3D Surround sound, Live preview to Headset capabilities, and an easy stitch workflow. It is the highest rated camera to date.
The video below was made by one of the rental providers and is one of the best overviews for the operation of the camera. I have put in an estimate with a couple of Southwest providers based out of California.
After effects can do most of the heavy lifting, but for the truly unique, we have VR tools in Nuke. A quarter rental later, and we can do Film Quality work and tackle anything we can imagine.
This is one of the best videos showcasing how light and effective the crew can be. Video village consists of a couple of MacPros, A Black Magic Deck, a broadcast monitor, and lots of VR Headsets. Perfect for showcasing lots of scenarios.
