Are there guidelines for producing 360° videos for the MK360?


Here are a few ideas to make your 360° look best when displayed with the MK360:
  1. Prefer fixed over hand held cameras, avoid excessive movements (ex: first person extreme sports), stabilize image in post-production if needed.
  2. Prefer open outdoor spaces to indoor architectural spaces. 
  3. If projecting indoor content onto an indoor space, prefer non-coinciding architectures (ex: a virtual room of 3x4m projected in a physical room of 4x3m might not fit).
  4. If projecting outdoor skylines, prefer projection spaces with high ceilings.
  5. Prefer curved / organic elements to geometric / angular shapes.
  6. Avoid elements too close to the camera, prefer clearly distanced planes.
  7. Prefer high contrast images with medium brightness, test contrast settings in post-production.
  8. Avoid projecting textual messages. If required, prefer large fonts placed at horizon height.
  9. Prefer placing the camera at eye-height.
  10. Prefer elements closer to the center on the Y axis (the horizon).
  11. Calibrate the MK360 for each projection space using the software calibration and grid warp features, as well as the physical Focus and Lens-Shift wheels.
