Because 360 videos are projected onto a sphere, you have complete control over where your viewer is looking. We’ll show you when and how to use Final Cut Pro X’s Reorient tool to shift perspective and address common alignment issues with the horizon.
Enhance Your 360 Environments
While looking around a 360 environment is engaging in and of itself, you can enhance your viewer’s experience by using the 360 Transform effect to place flat content such as logos, photos, or even b-roll footage shot with your iPhone or other camera into the sphere.
Hide Unwanted Objects
The nature of 360 video cameras is that by definition, they record in every direction. You’ll learn how to use Final Cut Pro X’s Patch Effect to remove unwanted objects; particularly camera rigs that appear at the bottom of the sphere.
Create 360 Effects with Motion
Apple’s Motion has a host of new 360 editing tools that work hand-in-hand with Final Cut Pro X. We’ll show you how to create a cool 3D 360 particle effect then publish it as a Final Cut Pro generator that can be applied to any 360 clip.
