Once you have started creating a new Portal experience, you will need to upload the video file through the 360/180 Video component in the left side panel. If that component is not open already, click on it once.
Upload an .mp4 video file. The 360/180 Video component provides two ways to do this.
- Move your mouse over the image area, and when the prompt appears click on the upload icon to open your computer’s file system. Browse to the .mp4 file you want and then click Open.
- Open your computer’s file system and find the .mp4 file you want to upload. The drag that file from the system browser to the image area in the 2D Video component to begin the upload process.
|For best results, we recommend using mp4 video with at least 720p resolution and less than 10 GB in size. Resolutions between 640x480 (480p) and 1920x1080 (1080p) are supported.|
|For now, AR Designer supports only one immersive video projection type: 360 equirectangular in monovision. Be sure that your uploaded .mp4 was filmed in this projection. We will soon support several other projection types.|
Once the video upload is complete, a slice of this first frame will appear in the 3D workspace within the portal frame. This is only a hint of what the experience will be on the mobile app, but is there to serve as confirmation that video is uploaded properly.
