How to make a panoramic video oneself
The question of how to make a panoramic video is not so often question for an ordinary persona as for the owner of a large business. Most often a businessman who has got such a task is faced with the question of how to show all the advantages of his company to a potential customer.
Such a presentation is optimal for the hotel and restaurant business. It is also good for real estate, online shops and cultural heritage objects: exhibitions and museums. It is very convenient to shoot a video about how to get to your destination in 360 degrees format. You can insert animated tooltips for a better understanding of the material throughout the video.

Even a small film needs a script as well as a location for video shooting. An open space or room is suitable with many interesting details that we would like to inspect. In addition, it is necessary to avoid shaking the image. Therefore, it is worth taking care of the tripod or stabilizer. Choose well-lit places, otherwise there is a great chance to get too dark circular video which is quite difficult to adjust after shooting.
A feature of 3D panorama is that the viewer can “turn” his head and inspect the location of the shooting entirely from different angles. Remove from the frame those items that you would not like to show. It is important that the panoramic video is comfortable to watch. It is best to place the viewpoint at the level of human eyes so that there is a complete feeling of immersion in virtual reality.
High-quality personnel are unthinkable without a conceptual operator vision, and without competent montage and color correction it is impossible to keep the viewer’s attention for a long time.
