The BEST way to PROPERLY Add Text, Graphics, 2D Video in 3D VR180 | Insta360 EVO, Vuze XR, Qoocam


You just got your first VR 180 camera:
Lenovo Mirage, Kandao Qoocam, Vuze XR Insta360 EVO or the professional
level Z Cam K1 pro or 2 RED cinematic cameras with very expensive and Entaniya fisheye lenses as you see right here. So what now? You want to make better VR 180
video content and I’m here to help. In this short video series I would go over
the basics of VR 180 post-production In this episode I want to go over how
to insert 2D graphics, title or 2D video in picture-in-picture format hey what’s up everybody, It’s your boi Hugh here from CreatorUp So before we start make sure you have 2
things. First it’s a 3d glasses like right here I’m wearing. It usually
come with red and Cyan. You don’t need a fancy one like this one. A paper one like
that will also work as well. The second thing is make sure you update your Adobe
Premiere to the latest version so if you have these 2 things lets dive right in in
Adobe Premiere. Before we get started make sure the sequence setting is in 180
180 and stereo side-by-side if not your view would not be correct. After that you can hit this button to look around and see 180 but that’s just
180 not VR 180 so you want to see 3d you can right click VR video –
sitting and the stereoscopic view drop down make sure to pick anaglyph go
ahead and now you see 3d now go ahead and put on your 3d glasses and you will
see this is actually not correct the left and right eye is flipped on this
particular footage I actually tricked you this footage is actually film with
the EVO hang on top of the car upside down so if we fix that make sure that in
your rendering software you flip the horizontal view to right to left to make
sure your footage have the correct left and right stereo view another way to
test your footage to make sure you have the correct left and right view is to
actually go ahead and insert a graphic with the black text and you see black
text on top of the white background the cyan is on the right and the red is on
the left after your insert VR planes to sphere and on here the review mirror is
also against the white background but as you see the right is actually red and
the left is Cyan is flipped from the correct setting so that’s how you know that
this is not the correct stereo footage. After you correctly input your VR 180
footage now let’s go ahead and insert some title text the easiest way to
insert any graphics in Adobe Premiere is to use essential
graphic Panel so go ahead and open that so here I already have some preset again
you can go ahead and purchase some preset or use a stock preset from Adobe
so go ahead and grab a grab it and drop it in right here I actually gotta turn
off the VR view when you insert 2D graphic like a title text they are
not 3d they’re not gonna fit right into your VR comp if you turn it on you see
this is not correct so first thing you need to do is to make sure the graphic
turn into 3d right here VR Plane to Sphere if the effect it’s not in your
often use go ahead and type in VR it will show up right here under immersive
video go ahead and drag and drop on top of the 2d text so now you see that text
actually appear on the left and right eye at the same time if you turn on VR view you see the text actually have no stereo disparity so it actually it’s
not in 3d but at least right now it appear on the correct position also an
other tip before you insert any 3d graphic make sure the scale is 100% and
the position is in the dead centers then the next thing is I would go into VR
planes to sphere remove all the feather and then change the size the scale is
actually the size of the insert text in here I actually wanna make it bigger
before we add some stereo disparity and make it 3d
I want to position this correctly I want to position the text on the roof it’s
not blocking the window view and open rotation projection go ahead and on the x-axis
right there so now it appear on the roof is not blocking our view but as you see
now it looked kind of weird if you look at the center the text kinda like lean toward you sometimes that’s the effect you want you want that lean toward you but
sometimes you don’t sometimes you just wanted to be a pure flat. So in order to
compensate that you open rotate source and here time the exact opposite value
of this one in here which is 18 just to see why now the text is actually also
straight forward in a correct position whenever you move the text x-axis
location make sure you compensate source
tilt position in the exact opposite value to make sure the text appear straight in
your scene. So last thing you’re gonna do is go ahead and add some 3d by increase
the stereo disparity as you see right there and here is a time to put on any
3d glasses to make sure that the stereo disparity is in the correct 3d space or
Z space of your entire scene as you see right here the text is appear on top
of my friend Dirk’s hat. So you want to make sure the text in the 3d space actually have more disparity than his head so in here I’ll say about 13 you look
correct. The best way to actually see if the text is correctly placed in the 3d
space in the scene it’s go ahead and actually render this whole session put
it in the Oculus Go to really see if correct or not or you can connect your
Oculus Rift to look at in the VR headset but the easiest way to just put on your
3d glasses and take a quick look right there there is a more scientific way to
place 3d graphic into a vr 180 video using canvas STK by the torus media
lab but that’s a little bit advance so we save for the next tutorial
okay now let’s take a look at how to do picture-in-picture in VR 180 and
see the next insert will actually have a video inside VR 180 video and this
professionally called picture-in-picture or PiP. That is a really useful
creative way to bring the center of focus up close to the audience because
in general VR 180 or VR 360 the far away object usually look pretty buried and
pretty hard to see because they all film a fisheye lens so you can always have a
2d camera to film the close up and put it in picture and picture and put it in
3d space to get a close-up view for the viewers and
insert video it’s just like insert motion graphic is the same basically
gonna put in a VR plane to sphere add some stereo disparity in here ten
look good to me and then same idea I moved this original graphic down thirty
five degree so to compensate that you want to add minor thirty-five to make
sure the graphic is straight especially for picture-in-picture 2d
video you want to make sure the graphic is exactly straight on your frame and
you also see this is actually NEST sequence. If you go in there and turn off VR comp view
I actually have a mask right here around the graphic the graphic is filmed
vertically with my cellphone I don’t want to top and bottom part I actually crop it in here so make sure that if you want to do any cropping any effect on a
2d video always do inside a nested sequence so VR planes to sphere will not
create weird effect on your graphic. Now let’s take a look at another example
so you really learn how to insert graphic in VR 180 in here I actually
have two graphic as you see right here if it turn on 3d views I have a lower
third on top of a picture-in-picture sequence inside a VR 180 video so how
can I make sure visually this graphic is on top of the picture in picture I
insert? So first make sure that you can see anagraph mode so you can preview
that on your your 3d glasses and second thing is if you take a look at the top
layer I have disparity 11 the bottom layer a
disparity 10 so with a higher disparity meaning that the graphic is closer to
the viewers eye that’s how you make sure that the graphic is physically on top of
whatever under it which is a video footage right here in the 3d space the
last thing I want to emphasize of inserting graphic in VR 180 video
is to make sure you don’t touch the position and scale as you see if I took
position right here to the position the graphic in 2d space recreate this real
whopping so this is not a correct way to move your graphic in a 3d space in VR
180 but what is that just want to slightly
move this graphic off the screen like why now it cover our directors head
I just want to do that as you see again it’s not gonna be correct the only way
to do that is actually if you create a graphic in After Effects
make sure you place your graphic on the left side of the 2d space so when an
insert is over in the correct position but again the easiest way is using
mograph in essential graphic panel of this mograph I already built in position
so I can just move it like that and the position will be correct so what mograph
does is basically Iike just insert a mini After Effects inside your sequence but you
can change value on the fly. you can also do that with the nested sequence
just like what we did on the picture-in-picture but just make sure
that if you want to move the position value off your insert graphic don’t do
it in the top layer with the motion panel do it in the nested sequence or do
it in essential graphic panel with mograph or with After Effects.
