ffmpeg command to encode a single image to a youtube 360… maybe…

ffmpeg -loop 1 -i panorama2.png -vf scale=1608×848 -c:v  libx264 -t 60 -pix_fmt yuv420p -r 30 -crf 18 mc_pan.mp4




It took a few steps. I’ll put together a series of steps later today and put them here and in the description of the video.
Basically it’s using a 1.6.2 plugin called “Panorama” I think that makes an image, ffmpeg to turn the image into a 1 minute video, use the Youtube 360 metadata injector (Youtube provides that), then uploading it to youtube.

The 3D thing is handled by Youtube after that, wrapping the movie around into a sphere.

There’s a newer plugin called “Replay” but I used this first because it was less complicated for me.

a) grab a bunch of spherical photos
b) show each scene
c) tell a story over each section.

you can make it into a mystery story where you have to look around for clues and things.
