    hi, how do you create a 360 video in unity?

    Do I need an asset like helios, or can you use octane?

    Do you create ananimation first then attach a panoramic camera?

    Any tips would be grateful please.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Ive used something similar to generate stereoscopic VR frames which I later combined within Blender to make a video clip which I could view through Google cardboard. But this was using only two cameras.

    In your case you need to capture image stills covering full 360 degree sweep of the camera at various elevations.

    Then use an image stitching software like Autostitch for seamless stitching of your images to create your rectangular panoramic image file.

    This will work fine for a stationary scene. If things are moving in your scene then it gets much more complicated and computer intensive. You will need asynchronous C# coding to capture frames from various directions simultaneously in realtime. I doubt Unity C# has this built in support I may be wrong.

    If you make it this far then you will need to assemble all those images into a 360 video. You most likely will have to use some thirdparty software.
