When director Mark Kudsi and VR supervisor Jared Sandrew asked if we could handle a VR project filmed at 6k resolution, 60 fps, and stereoscopic 3d, we nervously laughed and said “bring it on!”.

Leading VR company, Jaunt, was producing two 3 minute long 360 video pieces to accompany the newly released Step Up: High Water YouTube Red series and needed to add some visual effects magic.

Utilizing a 10gbe pipeline and realtime compositing inside the Oculus headset, our team created a variety of particle, streak, glow, echo, and title effects to accentuate the dancer’s performances throughout the 360 degree environment.
