Adobe recently showed off “CLOVER VR” a kind of Premier Pro for editing VR video, in VR. The concept and the need is very cool and much needed at the same time.
While watching the demonstrator showing a cut, I immediately thought of an older article I’d written (copied and adapted below) on depth continuity and how it’s as relevant to “VR” video as it is to stereoscopic 3D films.

“Think in 360” – A Masterclass in STORY TELLING IN VR:
The emphasis of the Cinematic VR Masterclass is to help Directors, Dps, Animators, Ad Agencies and Content producers to “THINK” in 360 when developing films and content to gear up for the new wave in how visual entertainment and content is being consumed – In Virtual Reality!

We start with the basics of stereoscopic 3D, and go into much detail with [...]

We call it Serious VR!
