Experimental 360 Video of Old Maverick Road
« on: April 08, 2018, 09:34:40 PM »
Hello,

I'm experimenting with some 360 video for VirtualBigBend.com.  Here's a test video traveling north from Ross Maxwell to Terlingua Abajo.  My hope is to document all backroads.  Leaving no view unseen.

Enjoy!



David

Thanks...The interactive part isn't working for me from the app.   It's displaying it in its spherical form.

If you're using the app, you'll have to open the video in the YouTube or a browser app outside of the BBC app.

It opened in YouTube for me.  But I was on my laptop.

Very cool!  Like how you could pause the video and still get the 360 view.

Thanks.  Yes, you should have no problems on a desktop viewing it straight from here.
I'm hoping to work out some kinks before my epic trip this summer so I can get all of Black Gap and River Road.

I like these kinds of videos. What is the camera? This will be a nice addition to VirtualBigBend.

Thanks Lance....It's a cheap little GEAR360 for now.  I'm not real excited about the quality of the stitch, but it could be user error as well. I'm looking to see with other options there are right now.  Way back in 2004, I saw a 360 video someone did with an experimental camera and was blown away. I've wanting to put it up on VBB ever since, but the cost was insane.  These cameras have come WAY down, but the one I've got right now is not impressing me.  (One of those, "get what you pay for" type things, I guess.)

Please don't do these for all the back roads. I'll never get any work done in the office if I can cruise Big Bend all day.

This is sooooo cool.  At first I wondered why you only showed where you'd been and not where you were going.....and then I saw the navigation arrows.  (I'm slow that way). Really looking forward to seeing the rest of the park through your eyes/camera, David.

I'm retired, go for it!  :great:

That is very cool!

Now that I can make 360 degree photos with my phone (what?..some 16 years later! You were so far out ahead of us David.) I wondered what you were going to do next to stay in the lead. This will do it!

I also really like the logo you covered the camera base with, nice!
