Telling stories in 360º videos is easier now

Description
In 2017, under the innovation fund Digital News Initiative, Google funded a project of the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) in order to stimulate the innovation in the digital journalism. Less than two years later, INESC TEC developed the Augmented Video 360 – an editing and visualisation tool for 360º videos with dynamic annotations in order to improve narratives. That’s why telling stories using 360º videos is easier now.
