How to Export a 360° Video from SE 0.99+

Nope! I included that resolution because it was considered "medium res" these days, but you can make your export smaller or bigger. You just need to make sure that whatever you rip at is larger than your screen resolution, or else you will likely see pixelization. Remember, it has to wrap ...

How to Export a 360° Video from SE 0.99+

This is now much easier than before! Some may remember my old thread where I and a few others stumbled through this process. One of the most vexing aspects of that whole thing - the one which almost made me give up before I'd really even begun (ffmpeg) - is now completely unnecessary. Here are the c...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video [SOLVED!]

I have been doing a lot of reading trying to figure out how to record and export 360 videos. I think these instructions are just what I was looking for.   Will these instructions work with the current version of SE?  If not do you have any suggestions or modifications for recording and exporting 36...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video [SOLVED!]

Hi Apollonius What program do you use to record your gameplay? Everything you've done looks amazing! Thanks! I had been using the last version of SE before the Steam version (0.99) was released, in addition to the 3rd party apps listed in the thread. I honestly have not had a chance to mess around ...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video [SOLVED!]

To get everything and even do 360 degree 3D immersive panoramas what all do I need?  ffmpeg, avidemux, divx/xvid and anything else? You will need the injector tool , and maybe VirtualDub if you want to join the clips together. Good luck! I'm about to make a separate thread about how to make these v...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video [SOLVED!]

What about using a third party recording program like Free Screen Recorder?  I've used it before to record individual windows or whole screens and it has a range of different compression tools and codecs you can choose from and a couple of them preserve quality fairly well and dont use up a huge am...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video [SOLVED!]

I guess ffmpeg uses the highest quality by default, but it might use the settings that the original AVI was encoded in. In my case it's DivX doing the encoding, and I selected the "MPEG4 ASP at L5" option. I'm not honestly sure what the difference between it and the "MPEG4 SP at L5&qu...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video [SOLVED!]

Thanks for spelling out all the steps Apollonius ,. I wonder what you'd recommend for bitrate and frame rate settings. When I'm using Avidemux, and configuring the video output for DV (ffmeg) I can't get to the Rate Control menu. Using Mpeg4 AVC (x264), a common codec, I can adjust the Rate Control...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video [SOLVED!]

Great work!  Can this be done just with ffmpeg or must all the tools in your step by step list be used? Thank you! I don't think that ffmpeg can inject metadata tags into mp4 files when it transcodes them, but I am probably wrong, ffmpeg is pretty amazing. I will have to look into that. The problem...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video

You always may export video as a series of screenshots in SE, and combine them into whatever video container you wish with a third-party program. The fastest lossless format is uncompressed tga, the fastest compressed in jpeg. Thank you very much for your help! This is how I wound up doing it: 1) S...

I finally got ffmpeg to work!!

Youtube still managed to mangle the file size and resolution, unless a higher res version will be available later on today, but it worked!

Problems with exporting as 360 Video

I'm trying myself, it's the first time so \o/ if the problem is that this metadata spacial thing absolutely needs an mp4 container, I usually do that conversion with HandBrake ( https://handbrake.fr/ ). My entire dvd collection is in a disk drive because this transcoder exist. Thank you again, but ...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video

I just downloaded Xvid, installed it, and it shows up as a viable codec in SE. But now every time I use it I get an "AVI compressed stream format setting failed" error message. :( Here's another problem: when you encode an AVI using divx, or anything else, you're still exporting as an *.AV...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video

what codecs did you use, lagarith lossless codec? Depending on your windows system and programs you have installed, you could have several encoders capable of encoding directly in mpeg 4, like xvid or similar. I usually use x264vfw, fetched from here Thank you for the response. I'm using the defaul...

Problems with exporting as 360 Video [SOLVED!]

I have successfully exported an equirectangular AVI as a 2-second video, in 6432 x 3216 format. It looks great. The only problem is that even though it's encoded it's still 1gb for 2 seconds of video, and I can't find any way to 'inject' the 360 metadata tags into an AVI. I downloaded a program whic...
