Bigsh0t - frei0r Plugins for 360 Video

A while back I created some effect strips for 360 video in Blender. Unfortunately, Blender's video sequence editor has no support for plugins, so the only way to get the effects really integrated would be to get my effect strips merged with the main Blender tree. This was too much work, so I decided to go look for some other video editor - one with plugin support - and I came across Shotcut. Shotcut's plugin support is much better than Blender's, and while the compositing features in Shotcut lags Blender's, it's much more of a proper video editor.

Wildflowers

After a dry summer, the wildflowers have shot up with a vengeance and cover the previously dry fields. The blue flowers are Medicago sativa, lucerne or alfalfa.

Carl Schmeiss Postitar 44mm f/32

The Carl Schmeiss Postitar 44/32 is a premium quality pinhole lens, hand-made from the best Post-It notes, a pencil and a Kenko extension tube. With excellent 3d-pop (the optics pop right out if you press with your thumb) and micro-contrast (the contrast is micro, not the micro stuff having contrast), and wonderful creamy bokeh along with a warm color cast reminding you of a summer day, it is a lens for pro photographers who want to take their art to the next level.

Lennart Hellsing's Grave

Just outside the main entrance of St Clara Church is a small wooden cross without a name, surrounded by a small ring of stones and flowers. It's the grave of Lennart Hellsing, a writer and translator who is perhaps most known for his children's books.

360 Video With Blender

!

This version of Blender is going nowhere fast. Check out the frei0r Plugins for 360 Video if you want to edit video today.

The Ricoh Theta is a fun toy, but to really play with it you need to be able to edit the video you capture. Blender being my favorite tool for this, I decided to try to add some functions I thought were missing to it.
