Import 360° Footage into After Effects. Apply SkyBox Composer > Add 2D Edit

SkyBox Composer creates a View-based Edit Comp, like what you see in a HMD or smartphone.

Object Removal in Edit Comp.

Review Highlights:

Skybox Studio V2 is an amazing package of goodies for 360 content creators. Life just got a lot easier for all of us with this new toolset.

Chris Bobotis and his team took a close look at how we were working and what we needed to do. The conclusion was that much of what we were doing would be much easier if done inside Adobe After Effects with a comprehensive toolset. Don’t let the idea of working in After Effects scare you, the three new modules that were created make it easy.

Skybox Composer creates an easy workflow for removing the Monopod or tripod that your 360 camera is sitting on. 

Skybox Project 2D and Skybox Rotate Sphere are available in After Effects. In the past, these two tools were only in Adobe Premiere CC. 

Supports more types of output formats. 

  • Fisheye Fulldome
  • Cube Map Facebook 2:1
  • Cube Map Pano 2VR 3:2
  • Cube Map Gear VR 6:1
  • Equirectangular 2:1
  • Cube Map 4:3
  • Sphere Map
