How to Outsource Work for 360 Projects using SkyBox Studio V2 in After Effects

Charles Yeager (  explains the workflow necessary to collaborate with other artists on 360/VR post-production, with artists who don’t necessarily have 360 experience. He shows how to outsource parts of your 360 production, like titling and graphics, using SkyBox Studio V2 with After Effects. Key to this workflow is using the View-Based editing in the Skybox Composer module, which lets your collaborators work in a 2D view.
