How to Create 2D Text + Graphics + Video Pop-outs + Overlays for 360 Video | SkyBox Studio V2 | Josh Kimmis

Josh Kimmis from CV shows how to achieve creative motion graphics — like those you’ve seen in The Verge’s Michele Obama 360 video — in After Effects for the 360 space. First, he walks you through creating pop-outs which allow you to place video and images into the 360 space via Skybox Composer. Next, he fills the frame with a color overlay while being sure to apply Skybox Project 2D so that it warps correctly. Last, he shows off CV’s personal favorite graphic — the Panem Effect. (Yes, just like the Hunger Games!) Whether your a pro or a novice, placing graphics in a scene has never been easier. Check out more videos from CV’s 360 Video Tutorial playlists to learn more about their 360 workflows!
