Guidelines for Master File Creation of 360° Films

The DDD60 project has issued a set of guidelines for master file creation of 360° films. The guidelines aim to help VR and 360° film content producers to prepare master files with the highest possible quality for submission to film festivals, markets, and VoD platforms. Master files produced according to these guidelines will enable service providers (for example, the organizer of a VR/360° library for film festivals) to generate compressed versions for high quality screenings to target viewers.

The document solves the problem of the proliferation of different 360° video formats by including a set of recommendations on video and audio parameters, exporting codecs, and container formats. These guidelines are the result of the collaboration between the project partners that include media technology companies and film festivals and markets, and content creators and artists.

The guidelines presented in the document are aligned with those provided by the VR Industry Forum (VRIF) group to facilitate the creation of next generation VR applications, and meet the specifications given in the Omnidirectional Media Application Format (OMAF) standard.
