VR Sphere to plane appears very cropped
on Jul 30, 2020 at 2:16:37 pm

Just wondering if I've made a glaring mistake in settings here... I'm trying to use the VR sphere to plane effect to convert this video (which was captured 360ยบ) to a 'normal' 2D video.

But the output seems very cropped. I'd effectively like to 'zoom out' the camera. Can I do this?

try polar coordinates or optics compensation...how big is your footage

Thanks for the reply. Tried polar coordinates but it doesn't do the trick. Where should I be applying it? I've tried precomping the footage and applying it in the precomp, with the sphere to plane map outside the precomp.

Tried optics compensation too but it has the opposite effect of further cropping the final image.

Footage is 2976x1674.

I'm trying to output it on a 1920x1080 comp.

I dont really know much about vr footage..i was just guessing...but have you tried the reverse box on the optics compensation?..But my guess would be that the footage is too small for 1920x1080.
