Hello all,

Doesn't seem like to many peo;ple are into 360/VR video yet.

Question: PD 16 will import and produce 360 4K video. Will it at some ;oint let us burn the 360 video.

The 360 video I am using is from the Yi 360 camera. It gets put out in .MP4 format and 5.7K. Not seeing that PD 16 will handle the 5.7K coming from the camera.

Any help would be appreciated.

Alan

Any ideas on the 4K vs 5.7K resolution? PD 16 seems to deal with 4K - don't see any way to work with 5.7K resolution.

I app;reciate your help.

I cannot find the topic, but as far as I know, PowerDirector 16 can only handle up to 4K footage, at least with 360°.
I don't know of any solution except recoding the footage to 4K.

thanks.

I am always one step ahead of the technology - then am trying to figure out how it works.

Will have to visit you in Germany come day.

not "have to". That sounds as if you don't want it.

I have been to Germany, Switzerland, France, Lechtenstein on a college tour. You are right there are some great p;laces to visit.

Kind of dangerous to travel now days. The kids will have a hard time in the new era.

Have you been to the states?

A user on the YI 360 Facebook group has produced an edited 'Profile.ini' file which allows export in 5.7k (several options)

see attached link

Seems to work well. Director Suite 365

FYI,

By downloading the new profile version 3 and replacing the orginal profile inPD 16 does work.

The orginal video file before this produced a 19.4 MB file. The 5.7 resolution file produced a 2.4G file.

So there is a price to pay for quality.

The quality is much better but you will have to balance quality with size and processing time.

The solution from Facebook to deal with 5.7K files does work. However the difference in trhe 5.7K resolution and the 4K resolution in file size is 19.4M to 2.4G. So there is a price to pay for quality.

Have to balance file size and processing time with quality. Then the next step is how to burn it to a dvd.

Guess there is no standard for burning 360 files to a dvd yet.

In PD 16 your have to change the profile inorder to work with a 5.7 resolution.

The 4K resoution file I previously attached (19M in size): You save it on your computer, then use Microsoft's "files&TV" prgram to play it.

The same video in 5.7K results in a 2.4G file - a little large to attach.

Be happy to share any experiences on the 360/VR stuff.

Not much help; out there yet.

Hello:

I have produced 3 360 videos (all the same except for the mbps). They are very small videos - but because they are 360 videos the file size is still very large.

The first one is 5.7 resolution, with a text added, and a transition added at 80mbps. File size 50M.

The second one is 5.7 resolution with the same text added, and same transition added at 100mbps . File size iss 62.6M.


The third one is 5.7 resolution with the same text added, a same transtion added at 120mbps. File size 78.6M.

I think the files are a little large to send as an attachment but am willing to send one or more of the files for your review upon a request.

They will play with Microsoft's "movies&TV" program.

Alan
