Congratulations on creating and naming your narrative! Next you need to upload your video and audio based assets to the EEVO system. Start by clicking on the "Assets" tab on the left side of the Narrative Menu.
In order to upload each asset, click on the green "Add Asset" button on the right side of your screen as seen above after which a dialog box will open. Navigate to where your file is located on your disk and upload it.
Depending on the type of file uploaded our system you may need to specify certain properties about it. For instance, after uploading a video asset, our system will want to know whether it is a Top/Bottom, Left/Right, or Mono video.
EEVO's system supports the uploading multiple versions of the same asset. To take advantage of this feature, click "Add Version" on your asset and upload the new version. Make sure to give your assets a few minutes to finish encoding after you upload them.
We ask that you upload the highest quality media you have. Our system will automatically encode every asset properly to target each specific VR device, so no need to worry!
Otherwise, we believe there are few components we believe should be standard for any VR video deliveries and others that we suggest you follow.
- Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1:1
- Framerate: native to what the camera captured, strongly preferring 60fps or higher when possible or in the case of sequences with fast moving content
- Scan Type: Progressive
- Video Aspect Ratio: 2:1 per eye. 2:1 mono, 1:1 stereo or 3D Top/Bottom
- Minimum resolution: At the lowest, 3840x1920 per eye — we believe 4096x2048 is better as it’s still within the 4k standard but at a higher quality with over a million more pixels
- 3D Format: Top/Bottom
- Delivery format: Intermediary format or H264 requesting a very minimal amount of compression or dictating specific high quality settings.
