About This Class

This course feature a Rockstar teacher in the the world of 360 Video using leading consumer 360 camera's like the Gopro Fusion. This course will get you started creating 360  Videos, time-lapses, and photos with popular 360 consumer camera's on the market like the Gopro Fusion. Lead American Instructor Al Caudullo will introduce us to the world of 360 Video with his 25 years of experience in the industry using the Gopro Fusion 360 Camera.

As a bonus you will also get an introduction to how you can apply your new skills and begin monetizing on your 360 Video footage using the Stock Footage business model


1. Introduction: Hi, I'm Al Qaeda Low, and this is the GoPro Fusion 3 60 camera. This camera's been on the market for about a year now, and it's by far considered by all the experts to be the best pro Sumer camera on the market . And if you want to learn how to use this and maximize your 3 60 images both stills and video, we're going to take you through all the steps and show you how to do it all. You have to dio click enroll. 2. Camera design sec 1 1: the GoPro fusion was designed with two lenses. You've got one in the back, one in the front, and if you notice here from on top, you'll see that the lenses air slightly offset. This enabled GoPro to make a design for this camera that kept it tighter and smaller, which for doing 3 60 that's called the nodal points at the center, and you wanna have a tight nodal point because then you can have better overlap between the two lenses and therefore you make a nicer stitch. And one of the things that the GoPro Fusion does best is give you a beautifully stitched image. Stitching is where they put together to the two images and fuse them together. Each one of these lenses is about 200 degrees, so it's actually seeing beyond itself. So you get about a 20 to 30% overlap, which is great. Also, it shoots in 5.2 K but later on in the course, we're going to show you some little secrets to where you can get 5.7 K And if you really push it even six K images out of this little baby, one of things about it. That also is very unique is that it's waterproof. Now I'm going to give you one provides. Oh, it's waterproof it. That doesn't mean you can shoot underwater with this camera unless you have an underwater housing. Light to fraction, once you get into the water, is much different than when you're in the air. And so, unfortunately, taking this underwater just as it is is not going to stitch together at all. But if you have a housing which we're going to show you, you'll be able to take this underwater and shoot beautiful underwater video. It also does very well in low light. But again, there are some things about that that I'll tell you about to where you can maximize your images. Now about the waterproofing you're going to see here, that all of the doors you're gonna open this up here to show you or have a little click, And if you look on the inside here, you'll see that there's rubber. So this makes this area waterproof, and this other area here, where you have the USB connection, it's also waterproof. So that's what gives you that great underwater capability. In other words, you could be at the beach. You can be at the lake, it can fall into the water and you don't have to worry about it getting ruined. So that's a great feature for the camera. Okay, guys. There's one other thing, though, to keep in mind about the GoPro fusion. And this is common to all 3 60 cameras. They all shoot circular fisheye, so it's on. The lens sticks out, and there's no way to put a lens cover around it, so you have to be careful when you go to put it down. In fact, GoPro gives you this case. This is what comes with it. When you buy a go pro, you get the selfie stick, which is also ah, tripod. And you get the case. And you should always when you go to put the camera down quick zip and put the camera into the case and then lay it down so that you don't scratch the lens. If you do scratch the lens, you're gonna wind up having to send it back to go pro. And if you don't have insurance on it, you're gonna wind up paying a tidy sum to get it repaired. 3. Quick start sec: So now we're gonna go into how to get quickly started with your GoPro fusion. Once you have it plugged in and charged and you're ready to go, you really only have two buttons to worry about. Over on this side, you have a mode button and power button, and on the front you have a record and stop record. It's pretty simple. So by pressing the mode button and holding it for just a second or two, you see the little red light. Come on and then the LCD comes up in the front. The default mode is set for camera to change that. To go to photo, you press the mode button again that takes you into camera mode. From there, you press it again and you get into Interval, which you there's several different modes of Interval will go through all of those. Then the last one is this little tool wrench. And if any of you familiar would go pro cameras in the past, they've all had the tool wrench. And when you get to there, you then press the record button to toggle through the settings for each one of the modes. Here's your video mode. Press the record button again to photo again. Teoh the time lapse and again to the WiFi and connecting up to your APs and to Bluetooth. And also this also has voice recognition, and it does it in several languages. So in that in the next mode you can determine whether you want that honor off and what language you want it to be in. And then finally, the last one gives you the about. It also gives you your formatting and other little incidentals and will have some things come up on the screen to show you exactly what each one of these menus contain. Press it one more time and we're back to video. If you press the mode button, you can toggle down through to make your changes, and then down here at the bottom is done. Now we're ready to shoot to shoot, press the record button, and we're already shooting. Now, this is something you probably want to try and avoid doing. You notice my face is right in line with this. It's okay to be here, and it's okay to be here, but try to avoid this as much as you can, because you may have some weirdness with some of the stitching. It does a great job, but it's just not the best. So if you go here, you're much better. 4. Landscape section 2 1: So when 3 60 cameras first came out, they were usually done by amateurs who were putting together a bunch of GoPro's six or eight cameras and then trying to stitch them all together. Then we had this whole group off small, consumer friendly 3 60 cameras come along, and most of those were four K resolution, which, when you look at a monitor behind us here and this one down here, these air four K resolution and they look fantastic. But with 3 60 there's a little bit of a twist. The four K has to be wrapped around 360 degrees, but when you're looking at it in a headset, you're only seeing 100 degrees field of view. So that means that actually, what you're seeing in that 100 degrees is less than HD quality. And then along came the GoPro fusion with 5.2 K and that increased the resolution to where looking in that F. O V, it looked much, much better. And so 3 60 cameras graduated, and all of a sudden, now we've got a whole bunch of 5.25 point seven and even going as much as eight K resolution for these 3 60 cameras. And, of course, the high of the resolution, the better it looks but go profound, this niche at 5.2 K and was able to deliver a very high quality image with this camera. 5. Stockfootage: Now you've learned how to go ahead and shoot with your GoPro fusion. We've shown you how to go ahead and download and render your footage. Now, once you get your edit done in Premiere Pro, you're gonna want to put it someplace maybe you want to put it on social media. Maybe you want to put it into stock footage. Now, some of the stock footage agencies that handle 3 60 are upon five Getty images, and the leader in the industry right now is blend media, and they're always looking for good, unique 3 60 footage. Now let's take a look at how we do right from premier pro and post up to social media. Okay, with your edit completed, you Ochlik file and export. Then, in the published section, you're going to see a list of places that you can automatically publish to. For instance, if you want to go to Facebook, let's open that up. You would sign in. You can decide which page you wanted to post to. You can give a title and a description, and that's all there is to it. Now you're ready to go have fun with your fusion 3 60 camera 6. Gopro app sec: One of the great things about this camera is that you can control it with either your IOS or Android app. I'm gonna put this down for a second in the case. Now, I've got a Samsung s eight here, and this is the GoPro set up, and I'm gonna go here to camera and you notice we've already got some of the cameras set up here. Yep. Okay, so we bring up the GoPro app and we go to connect. It shows the camera name and the password. Now we're gonna add a camera, and it's searching for our camera right now. And there we go. It's found it. We click connect, And there we are, ready to record to record with a GoPro fusion using your app. We're set for video right now. If you want to change modes, you can change over to time lapse photo time lapse photo burst night or night lapse. But we're gonna leave it in video for right now. And we're gonna click the little circle, which then turns red and you notice are GoPro is recording and recording right now and you can see our countdown timer up on the top showing how much time is elapsed while we're recording. Press it again and we're finished Now we can go to this little checkerboard over here, this little tick tack toe and that will show us our video that we just shut. Let's turn it this way and you can take your fingers and twisted and manipulated. However you want to look at it, keep in mind that what you're looking at is a low rez version from the camera. So you can even take this into a tiny planet. Look here and do anything that you want to with it. And you can also go ahead and save it at this point and you can create bookmarks and you can download it and you can edit it. So the APP gives you plenty that you can do, and you can then share it online right from your phone. 7. Summary: Let's summarize what we did today with the GoPro fusion. We've talked about how to activate it and turn it on. How to do the set up. Have a do video, how to do photos, how to go ahead and use the app and the desktop software. And we've talked about what 3 60 is all about. It's about being able to capture the world in a unique form, but more than that, it's about being able to do to D as well as 3 60 So it's more of an action camera that's multiple cameras all in one. It's a fantastic tool for you to be able to experience new things that you've never seen before and combining it with a H M D headset. You can create some amazing visuals.

One of the most stunning things to say that this little mosquito kills almost a 1,000,000 people every year. Most of those deaths are from malaria. - Oh , but the natural pans out. I hope. Cops with your technology hang on. Our court name wanted Pakhtunkhwa. Probably brown hats and afternoon, A rule back. Sound right Hopes.
