BCC VR Reorient

BCC VR Reorient

New in BCC11

Overview

The BCC Reorient filter enables users to reorient a VR 360 shot in true 360 VR space in either mono or stereo format. Included in the filter are a set of intuitive overlay guides that map each section of the 360 source clip to its respective face in the 360 environment, emulating the view that a user would experience when consuming 360 media via a head mounted display system such as an Oculus Rift.

Presets and Common Controls

BCC filters come with a library of factory installed presets plus the ability to create your own custom presets and preview them  with the BCC FX Browser™.

BCC filters also include common controls that configure global effect preferences and other host-specific effect settings.
