What is VR cinematography?
This is the latest video-making and playback format. Emergence of this new technology can be compared to transition from silent to sound movies or switching from black-and-white to the movies being in color. Here recording is made using special cameras, capturing all the environment in a 3D format.
While watching such video a viewer is free to control the camera's angle, observing the surroundings around him and perceiving real cinematographic three-dimensional picture instead of animated graphics. This technology was never used before 2015. Participation effect greatly exceeds all well-known 2D, 3D and 5D cinema formats.
After VR-headset came out, 360 3D format became the basis for a new movie genre. Putting the VR-helmet on makes a viewer to immerse right into the thick of events. All around him – places, happenings, people are extremely real! Sense of being physically present in a virtual world completely stands out from what modern cinematography can currently boast no matter if it is a feature film, IMAX or a computer game.
Combination of 360 video with an interactive part empowers the viewer to Influence the storyline, chose the routes to go, talk to characters and move along the preferred direction.
