Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Stereoscopic 360 issues for youtube

Hey there I've been following this tutorial getting ready to try my first 360 animation in youtube


but he says to render at 4096 x 2048 but when I do that I get black edges that in the end only make a 180 video in youtube.

alt text

am I missing something because the 2 images on top of each other really make a square not a rectangle.

Also how are people converting their jpg sequences to mp4's? Because when I take it into Adobe Media Converter it will only export a video out at a maximum of 2300x2300?

I've also been noticing the quality on youtube is terribly pixellated, do I just need to wait sometime for their end to produce all the different resolution versions?

Thanks in advance.

Well I eventually got it all working, here's my try with my test file...


Although I find youtube really kills the quality of everything even when this is a 4096 x 4096 file ☹ even if i fiddle with their quality settings whilst playing the movie.

Anyhow my process in the end was...

Following https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6Ca8IMiuuY but at 4096x4096 avi, open in HandBrake, export as mp4 (Preset > Normal), follow https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6316263?hl=en&ref_topic=2888648 (but only tick the first option in their 360 Video Metadata app) wait an hour or a day for high quality version to be produced by youtube.
