The Rise of VR has created the need for hyper-realistic immersive audio, rolling out a thrilling era for audio. For a long time, audio seemed like a minor afterthought, leaving the center stage to visual effects, and often driving creators to invest in visually-overwhelming experiences. However, just like in reality, audio is a prime factor, so in order to simulate reality, 3D audio should be treated with equal care. When audio is planned along with the visual aspects right from the beginning, it can assume a major part of the story and create a well-rounded 3D environment.
Tips for Creating 360 Degree Audio
Longer Footage, Higher Flexibility
Record each scene for at least 5-10 minutes, to allow for maximum flexibility in choosing the best clips in the editing stage. You don’t want to get stuck with inaudible speech just because there’s no other option.
Define Your Recording Area
Plan 360 Degree Audio Levels
Take into account that your equipment’s position will be static for the entire scene, so it would be best to plan your levels accordingly. You can monitor the recording using your smartphone.
No Rash Changes
Carefully choose a strategic location for your rig, in the center of the audio and video action. No less important, make sure the position is completely stable, to avoid user nausea.
