180 degree video from Fusion

Hi!

Is there any way I can create 180degrees video, so viewers can watch in vr googles and look around 180deg but not beeing able to see “backstage”?

Kind regards

Hi @szymonr87405

 

You may have this done using a 3rd party application.

You may try to black out the other half of the video.

 

Let us know how it works out.

 

Regards,

Ej

Has anyone found a way to do this? I too am interested in only 180 degrees video without recording twice as much as I need to

Re: 180 degree video from Fusion

There is no way to restrict the viewing movement of a persons VR experience to 180 degree's using the GoPro software.  However Occam's razor teaches us to use the simplest solution when confronted with a problem.  In this case, simply cover the lens pointed at the area you do not wish people to see.  This will result in your viewers having a 180 degree field of view, still be able to pan and move around but also stops them seeing things that are "out of frame".

Re: 180 degree video from Fusion

That is some next level workaround!

 

One reason I want to create a 180 degree video is to decrease the file size. I'm not sure I will accomplish that with covering one lens. Maybe with blacking out the other hald of the video as aragon1006 mentioned, but I don't know how to do that either.
