There is no doubt that Mettle’s SkyBox Studio is the definitive tool for working with 360 and VR in After Effects. The plugin suite makes it easy to create and edit 360 footage right in After Effects. You can import 360° video to work with most of After Effects tools. Add text, logos, create object removals, and apply tracking data.
It is that last point where Jonathan Winbush (winbush.tv) offers some tips for tracking 360 footage with After Effects 3D Camera Tracker system. Watch as Jonathan uses Mettle’s SkyBox Composer in SkyBox Studio 2, with the After Effects 3D camera tracker to track 360 footage. Jonathan then uses the tracking data to add 3D elements to the shot with other Ae 3D plugins.
