Generate 360 format from your comp. Easily convert between Equirectangular, Spherical, Cubic Cross and FullDome formats. Add 360 camera movement - tilt, pan and roll - onto stationary footage. Import stitched 360 footage, extract it into 6 undistorted camera views using SkyBox Extractor, add text, graphics and VFX and re-export to 360. Preview your camera point of view with SkyBox Viewer.
Test using concert footage shot in 360 on a tripod. We added a Pan and Tilt to the footage using SkyBox Studio. We used the "Re-Orient Camera View" feature in SkyBox Converter. Also applied SkyBox Converter to Ae text (2D Source - Equirectangular), with same "Re-Orient Camera View" keyframes as the footage, so the movement synchs. Adjustment Layer with Colorama.

In his own words,"360 Video in After Effects is easy to work with using the SkyBox Studio by Mettle. This how-to video will show you the steps. You can add effects mostly like you would with flat footage. Skybox Studio makes it super easy."
Alex Vasutin (vrvr.pro) shows how to stabilize 360 Drone footage and add VFX, all in After Effects with SkyBox Studio. He begins by stabilizing the 360 footage using SkyBox Studio module "SkyBox Convertor", with the "Re-orient Camera" feature. Alex also composites an explosion with smoke on the horizon, a flash of light, and radioactive particles. He uses "Re-orient Camera" to also add a camera shake during the explosion.
'A Brilliant Night' is a 7 minute FullDome animation presented at a fundraiser for Brain Cancer Research for the Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute) at The Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium (Montreal). The animation was generated in After Effects using SkyBox Studio, and with Maxon C4D. SkyBox Studio: mettle.com/product/skybox-studio/
At mettle, we consulted on this project and integrated FullDome into SkyBox Studio as a result. SkyBox Studio now converts between Equirectangular, Spherical, Cubic Cross and FullDome.
