360° Photos and Videos – Fad or Future?

Iain Anderson, Training Brisbane Part of CW17

Today’s 360° photo and video techniques let you capture the whole world around you, and today’s VR goggles and smartphones let you see whatever part of the world you want to look at. This presentation will show you some basic techniques on how to capture and edit photos and videos in 360° formats, and how to distribute them to a wide audience. We’ll use cheap cameras and widely available software, and you can make your own call on whether this is the way of the future or another fad.
