The process began with cutting ‘rushes’ (best clips) from each dive. This required finding the same point in time from each of the six cameras, generally a starting point where we had tapped the camera to create an audio synchronization marker for the software to detect.
The second stage involved aligning and stitching the videos, the most complicated part of the process. Using specialist software the rushes were synchronized and control points added to align each of the videos into their fixed position. The individual videos were then merged together into a single 360 video file and exported in high resolution (up to 8K).
