How to Add Credits to a 360° Video in After Effects + Free Project File
Charles Yeager (yeagerfilm.com) shows two different ways to add rolling credits onto 360° footage in After Effects. He uses Mettle SkyBox Studio plugin for After Effects, that lets you properly format the text. Free project file available – see link below.
The first method is a quick way to add scrolling text using SkyBox Converter module, to add a properly distorted layer of text on top of stitched 360 footage.
The second method uses SkyBox Creator module, which adds a few steps, but gives you access to many effects in After Effects, and creates more depth to the text. Charles includes a ‘Star Wars” style scrolling text using this method. He uses SkyBox Viewer to preview the finished video.
