video export from 360 pano

Hi all,

I decided to start a new thread because there are so many posts about this issue.  I have spent alot of time and effort experimenting with TW video export.  I tried screen capture with some success but it was always hit or miss with inconsistent results.  I have a some video editing backround so I came up with a solution using it.  I have posted a video sample that I am happy with.  It is only a sample video with camera movments and spinning text.  I made this DVD movie for a friend.  I can output almost any format from PAL/NTSC standard, to full HD, DVD or blue ray.

If you do not have Xvid codec. Here is a MS media player codec file

Here is a flash embedded html.  The quality is much lower then dvd quality but I just wanted some feedback.

This sample is 27 seconds long.  The original file uncompressed and is about 900MB, but I compressed this file to just under 3MB for easier downloading.   :)   Please let me know what you think.

I like that very much, are you willing to share how you made it? That was a huge file to start with. Was it made from a 360 or did you use a video camera?
Nikon D300, D3s, Nikon 10.5 lens, RingT105N+Footplate+MrotatorTCPs, Giottos MT9261 Tripod, Manfrotto 410 Jr geared head.

If you know the "secret" then everyday is a good day!

The quality of the avi file is great - best I've seen done from a panorama... Personally, I'd slow the movement down quite a bit, but looks good. How did you do this?

Thanks Wil,

I build a custom 3d setup to record it.  I am working on adding 3d depth and also 3d virtual objects to it.  You are right about the camera pans being fast.  I put most of my effort into video quality and I wanted to test the performance of fast pans to see if it would studder on playback or degrade the quality.  As you can see it passed with flying colors. :) 

I will have another example of the 3d stuff next week.
