Earlier this summer, I spoke at Mojofest in Ireland about the future of 360, virtual reality and augmented reality. With my background, I naturally gravitated toward 360 video.

My prediction? That overcapture would lead to a second surge in popularity of 360 cameras.


Overcapture, also known as free capture, is the process of shooting an entire scene with a 360-degree camera and then cropping the video for use in a traditional fixed-frame video.

It was so well-received that I decided to create a how-to guide with the tips I learned shooting overcapture for the first time and evangelize this new possibility for 360 cameras.
