More and more news organisations are embracing immersive 360-degree video as a way to tell stories in a new, exciting way, but the spherical technology can also offer reporters new opportunities out in the field.
Overcapture, also known as free capture, is the process of shooting with a 360-degree camera and then cropping the video for use in a traditional fixed-frame video – handy if you are out in the field trying to produce multiple pieces of content at once.
In this week's podcast, we speak to Sarah Redohl, new media journalist and editor of Immersive Shooter, who explains why the Overcapture process matters to videographers, how to do it in the field, and the equipment you will need to get started.
