Sample ODS video

I rendered with POV-Ray (using my approach) a sample 360 degree, omnidirectional, stereo video (top/bottom).
Can be used for stress testing VR Video players, HMD etc.

It’s a 120 frame animation, loopable. It mean one seconds at 120 FPS (for example PSVR), 1.25 seconds at 90 FPS (Oculus Rift, HTC Vive), etc.

Real plain preview:

It took around 4 days for rendering on my i7 with eight cores.
Every frame have 7680 x 7680 pixels resolution (Stereo top/bottom), around 32 MB PNG each.
I encoded it in different FPS and resolution. As explained in my other post about ODS, x264 don’t support highest framerate at highest resolution.

ffmpeg command-line encoding:

ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe -framerate 60 -i sample%03d.png -c:v libx264 -preset veryslow -vf scale=1280:720 -x264-params crf=18 -c:a aac -strict experimental preview.mp4
