As interest in virtual reality experiences continues to grow, a range of technologies is improving the production and post processes.
G’Audio Works is an interactive 3D audio plug-in for digital audio workstations that’s designed to produce more immersive cinematic VR content. Works can be seamlessly added to Pro Tools and enables audio engineers to create spatialized sounds as they watch the reference video and to export quickly with offline bouncing. While other spatial audio solutions focus only on supporting ambisonics, Works supports the simultaneous use of ambisonics, channel and object (mono) signals, with the last being critical in controlling individual sound objects.
The Mocha VR plug-in brings native 360° optimized motion tracking, masking, object removal and horizon stabilization tools to applications including Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe After Effects CC, Avid Media Composer, the Foundry Nuke and Blackmagic Design Fusion. Developed for editors, compositors and finishing artists, Mocha VR’s post-stitch workflow can be used to fix many issues associated with 360° post, such as removing cameras and stabilizing aerial footage.
Without the proper power supply, VR camera systems such as the GoPro Omni can only run as long as they have power left in their internal battery packs. With the XP-DV-5GPR battery system—which includes a cable, mount plate, Hypercore-98S battery pack and GP-LS single-position charger—the GoPro Omni camera will operate for three hours. Produced for GoPro, the XP-DV-5GPR cable lets users employ a standard P-tap connection to power the VR system. The cable outputs 5V, with a maximum of 8 amps, allowing users to power the Omni and charge HERO4 Black battery packs simultaneously…
