Chapter 12. Building with Panoramic Images > Panoramic Photos in After Effects

Panoramic Photos in After Effects

When you’ve completed your panoramic photo, it’s ready for After Effects. Remember that panoramic photos do not have to be 360 degrees (just the most useful ones are). You also may want to downsample the image resolution:

  • If you’re using the photo for a virtual set, keep a higher-resolution file (we do). A vertical height of 3,000–10,000 pixels is adequate. Use the higher numbers if you’re trying to simulate distance for depth of field effects.

  • If you’re using the photo in a seamless loop, you won’t need as much resolution. For things like DVD menus or installation graphics, resize the photo in Photoshop so its height is no more than 2X your target finishing size (such as 2160 pixels for a 1080p composition).
