Several good topics found and logged below 

Tutorial by Guru Mike of 360 Rumours

facebook  I website   


Obviously you can attach your device to a drone and get some amazing shots but here's some examples when it looks like a drone but it's not a drone


here's another example using a selfie stick - remember the gyro keeps the video view at horizon (level) no matter what angle the camera
so taking the selfie stick from extreme left to right in a vertical (like sunrise sunset) action is not apparent as the tripod at Nadir is hidden

in this example:  fbk page round to it in 360 selfstick moving mini from outside rear to inside  - tip: pause the video and rotate the view

270cm selfie pole ... here's a drone 

about device:  Insta360


deciding to position the device above, below or in front creates major differences 
google the topic 360 camera on drone and view the samples 

the best I've seen is where they attach a device above and about 10 cm in front to produce in inst360 where you can rotate the view in standard output, you can get similar effects in Theta but it's not seamless 

examples of drone shots 

creating a standard video that appears to be from a drone 

Inst360 show such examples 

actual drone footage with a pilot on the drone - 50 secs

Little Planet

most device apps can output in this format, the front runner is Theta app
use little plant option or mirror ball,  pinch zoom to desired size and output

Mirror Ball: Spinning 

now possible with free app Theta, they added customise option, see samples in lab test page Mirror Ball

Moon Jump

example in insta360 site showing equipment required is device and selfie stick 

Multiple angles

output to Standard 360 video


Multiple angles of the same scene
using free app Theta 
set view to fisheye - mirror ball or little planet and pinch zoom to size 

turn to the desired angle and output the vid
now change the angle and output again
and again

you now have 3 exact clips of same audio but diff camera angle
this is awesome for interviews and/or narration topics 

within Theta app you can set the aspect to Portrait, Landscape or Square

Insta360:  output to standard 1080 HD 
from within their app you can use their tracker feature output to create Pan, zoom, rotate

Perfect Pano


from a 360 there are 2 apps that product the most stunning 360 Pano

1. free IOS & Android  Dermanda Panorama 
last test: 2018.10.03 
from camera roll - before you upload to their cloud see the option to out as video as various speeds
the output is a perfect smooth 360 pan .. brilliant to include in standard video footage 
about this app in page 360 devices - non spherical  (as the app also buildings spherical without a camera)

2. IOS Pi2Video  
last tested 2018.10.03 
does similar to dermanda but much much more, set the angle, the speed and it produces the perfect 360 pano - IOS page
