360 degree Video from Blender

So ever since I got google cardboard, I've been fascinated by 360˚ Video.. watching it even without a cardboard device is really good fun. So then I started looking into cameras and other hardware requirement for making these.

Then out of the blue, one of my tweeps tweeted this 

So I promptly googled the process and followed this quick tutorial by StoneBrickProductions

Rendering panoramic video has been an old feature in most 3d programs, its just that with youtube 360 we finally have a platform to upload it to.

Anyway heres my model in blender. It took about 12hrs to render using Cycles. I couldn't find the panorama tools in old Blender renderer otherwise would have used that.

Heres a quick 3d animation I made in Blender..  to try publishing my own 360 video to youtube.Rendered a panoramic video with Cycles and then used google's meta data tool to inject meta data so that youtube can process it as a 360 video -

If you want to study the blender file, you can download it at the bottom of this post..
