In this video, Hashi walks you through his 3D normalization process – and then he introduces you to…

Normalize Track – a New Free Tool for Fast Simple 3d Normalization! Yup, you read that right. FREE. We asked our friend Joe from workbench.tv if there was a way to bottle up Hashi’s process and make it automated.

And while there’s no actual bottle, he did create a script that gives you a dockable After Effects panel with just a few buttons to make the 3D normalization process simple and easy.

Plus it has a few extra tricks that we know you will love. All the details and links to download Normalize Track for FREE: https://www.redgiant.com/blog/2020/06…

If you’ve watched any of Hashi’s Cheap Tricks tutorials for Red Giant, you’ve probably seen him “normalize” a 3D composition, right after camera tracking.

It’s a necessary multi-step process for taking the random 3D coordinate results generated by the After Effects camera tracker and turning them into something useful for adding motion graphics or VFX to your footage. Since it’s so essential and is often missed, Hashi has put it all together in this short tutorial!

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
