Computer Animated 360 Video Production

YouTube Video

I'm currently experimenting with video game engines, virtual reality, and 360-degree videos at Heaven's Disciples Labs. This video is of Planet Hadea, the closest planet to the Atlantica Sun in the Atlantica System. The following video was rendered using images of one of the planets I created using Space Engine, a game engine.

Google Earth Studio Early Access

I've been invited by Google to the Google Earth Studio early access.

Google Earth Studio is a web-based animation tool for Google Earth imagery. It allows users to create and render videos using Google Earth.

I'll be using Google Earth Studio, through Heaven's Disciples Labs, to see how it can be used for world building, starting with its use in studying geography, topography, and city planning.

The image below is of downtown Cleveland, Ohio, that I captured from Google Earth Studio.

I'm going to create videos of cityscapes for inspiration in modeling 3D buildings and cities for my video game development.
