About me

The Nutty professor 
tests are done as an end user 
Phill Smith (more on me in 360 app page about me / my 360 stuff in devices my profile)

about app Video to Photo

a must do for anyone that creates videos (not just 360)

Bonus for 360 (spherical) community 
app author has included auto injection of Spherical metadata into output files (images), therefore you save a lot of time and no duplication

it's an enormous time saver and life saver
when you browse your video you will always find some incredible angles / aspects that you can now extract 

The review of the app Video 2 Photo is linked at top of page or click here at video 2 photo

Workflow of the promo

The info below is the flow of work to create the promo video
I used several apps to test various tools and options 
you do not have to use all

Please experiment and let me know of your trials so we can share and publish to the 360 community groups

we learn more from failures than from success 

Banner / background

created with app YOU DOODLE
app can be found in page 360 apps - photo editor

why i use it 
quick canvas size options, many defaults PLUS custom to create aspect for spherical - I select 2000 x 1000

awesome fill options . many designs to fill the white canvas 
if you intent to add photos then maybe leave it white

see this example: faq make a banner
the background is white with various photos of lovely model and set to rotate in host site 

I have learnt that it's important to set anchor points to know where the centre point is as well as the horizon
in you doodle I add a frame or symbol and stretch it across the width 

create video of talking heads

app:  IOS  ifunFace  

there are several similar apps in IOS such as Animate Me, My Talking Pet, 
I like ifunFac - many options and lots of fun
paid for the pro version to get HD video 

it's easy to create a head, from current pic or library, make them any size .. lol 
add accessories, record messages in diff voices or balloon chats .. it's all good fun

to create the picture of person on white canvas 
many apps
quick app to use is IOS Sticky, snap a photo or take from camera roll, it auto removes background and saves in png so you can layer it onto a photo or another canvas 

in this instance I used the existing screen capture of the app and layered my sticky pic onto the existing pic

the video can be run by itself or pip (photo in photo / Video in photo / video) 
many apps can handle pip ... I use Vimo coz it does so many other things (Vimo info down the page in workflow)

PIP in Spherical is tricky
when you PIP in standard photo .. what you see is what you get
when you pip in 360 / spherical - it can be a nightmare !  
you need to understand the size / outcome of warp and wrap effects so be patient; drink lots of wine and enjoy the journey

pip-ing a 360 in a standard a photo editor 
the pip will wrap differently to when you use a 360 editor such as Veer; it will wrap and warp the opposite way 
that's good and bad

I decided to pip the video into a 360 video so that means a lot of work (more wine) but i then have more complex samples to share and someone will expand and create bigger and better ideas which they can share back

go alone - go fast V's go together and we go far  

create a canvas of 2 x 1

photo sample: from app you doodle: 2x1 (2000x1000) 
used in app fill to add grass 1 click 
used in app frame to add horizontal line and centre marker 

app VeeR
add a sample photo to set a best view size of image 
that is test the idea size and use that as a template to load video later

either load in Werble to add motion effects or load into Vimo to pip video 

app Werble 
add motion stickers to a photo - output is video 

Werble is quite astonishing: IOS and Android to handle any size photo, has a substantial library of effects (many are free)

app Vimo (video editor)

outstanding video app
recognises 2x1 and output 4k

good for any video editing with many many features

bonus: for 360 community
recognises 2x1 format and 4k resolution

load a 360 image and pip video on it
stretch the duration of the photo to suit the video 

I decided to 1st create animation of the canvas (see above) by loading the image canvas into werble and add weird / wonderful effects

the output was measured to be longer (30 secs) than the infunfac video 29 secs 

in Vimo

load video from Werble
pip in the video from infunface

the video from app werble has a centre point photo tested as ideal size for pip video
added some motion effects 
in app Vimo - motion stickers tool: like most things, is very easy once you know how to drive it... some help on that is covered in lab test Vimo many samples

output: hd or 4k res

lab test page Vimo many samples

Vimo pip tests all good except 360 vid in 360 vid

tested  2018.09.22
pip video to 360 video = yes    (1k in 4k)
pip video to 360 photo = yes    
pip 360 photo to 360 video = yes 
pip 360 video to 360 video - No   (4k pip in 4k)

all output was tested at 4k

load video into app VeeR (360 editor app)

add stickers at various points around the 360 
output to inject spherical data

optional:  something you should do on all videos as a matter of opportunity

Load video into app Video 2 Photo

browse the video roll to select unusual / unique views, extract the image as a photo
output is same format as the video in this case 360 is 2x1 and 

bonus: 360 community: images are auto injected with spherical metadata

note: samples of images extracted from this video are incidental, better examples are in lab test review video to Photo



Video in 2 host sites:  best tip;  if the video does not display as 360 spherical .. copy and paste the link to your mobile browser

1. VeeR 360 site link

2. Youtube link

WARNING: lab test often includes multiple widgets (embedded objects) which means the page needs a little more time to download 
so be a little more patient than norm

the test is completed as an end user and shared to community free, the limited time is applied to the practical use of the product not spelling / grammar and window dressing as it's not a commercial activity
