Creative professionals are creating Virtual Reality (VR) experiences today by capturing spherical videos, but video editing is still done primarily in traditional 2D desktop GUI applications such as Premiere. These interfaces provide limited capabilities for previewing content in a VR headset or for directly manipulating the spherical video in an intuitive way. As a result, editors must alternate between editing on the desktop and previewing in the headset, which is tedious and interrupts the…

Designing In-Headset Authoring Tools for Virtual Reality Video

Vremiere, an in-headset video editing application that enables editors to edit VR video entirely in the headset, and a set of techniques to assist filmmakers in managing and accessing interfaces in stereoscopic VR video without suffering depth conflicts are introduced.

VR as a Content Creation Tool for Movie Previsualisation

A VR authoring system which provides intuitive ways of crafting visual sequences, both for expert animators and expert creatives in the animation and film industry, and is complimentary to existing tools, and provides a seamless back-and-forth process between all stages of previsualisation.

CollaVR: Collaborative In-Headset Review for VR Video

CollaVR is presented, an application that enables multiple users to review a VR video together while wearing headsets and developed a set of networked tools that enable filmmakers to collaborate and review video in real-time.

Shot Orientation Controls for Interactive Cinematography with 360 Video

This work presents new interactive shot orientation techniques that are designed to help viewers see all of the important content in 360-degree video stories and provides an automatic method for determiningImportant content in existing360-degree videos.

Cross-objects user interfaces for video interaction in virtual reality museum context

The results reported no significant differences in the perceived usability or learning experience between these user interfaces, except the COUIs had a lower level of satisfaction than the card-style user interfaces and the plain virtual reality user interfaces in the virtual reality museum.

Highlighting Techniques for 360° Video Virtual Reality and Their Immersive Authoring

This presentation explains the creation of cues for highlighting in 360° video VR, a non-trivial task itself, that is even more challenging for laymen in the field of VR.

Comparing Spatial Interaction Modalities for 2 D-Widgets in Productivity Applications in Virtual Reality

A two-axis design space for 2D widgets in VR is identified which puts widgets in the 2D plane of the user’s physical desk, enabling passive-haptic feedback via touch input and results show that hand touch, table touch, and world raycast are most successful, while users prefer table touch and hand touch.

Depth Conflict Reduction for Stereo VR Video Interfaces

A user study is conducted to assess the effectiveness of two new techniques that dynamically adjusts the perceived depth of the UI to avoid depth conflict in two stereoscopic VR video tasks: video watching with subtitles, and video search.

Hand-based Interaction in Mixed Reality

This thesis investigates hand-based interaction techniques for mixed reality through four papers that allow users to use greater capability of their hands and interact with the virtual and real world around them more fully.

View-Dependent Effects for 360° Virtual Reality Video

Results show that experts find view-dependent effects desirable for their creative purposes and that these effects can evoke novel experiences in an audience.



Creating and analyzing stereoscopic 3D graphical user interfaces in digital games

This work presents a S3D Game GUI Design Space and a list of S2D-specific attributes that emphasizes integrating visually comfortable interfaces into the game world, story and S3d view and shows quality improvements for a combination of bottom position and visual attachment for a menu.

Towards effective interaction with omnidirectional videos using immersive virtual reality headsets

A new approach for ODV browsing using an immersive, head-mounted system that decoupling navigation in time from navigation in space enables more natural ways of interacting with ODVs.

LACES: live authoring through compositing and editing of streaming video

This work introduces LACES, a tablet-based system enabling simple video manipulations in the midst of filming, allowing greater spontaneity and exploration of video creation.

VR planet: interface for meta-view and feet interaction of VR contents

The emergence of head-mount-displays(HMDs) have enabled us to experience virtual environments in an immersive mean. At the same time, omnidirectional cameras which capture real-life environments in

Creating map-based storyboards for browsing tour videos

This paper presents a system that makes the process of sharing and watching a long tour video easier, less boring, and more informative, by augmenting the tour video with a map-based storyboard, where the tour path is reconstructed, and coherent shots at different locations are directly visualized on the map.

HybridSpace: Integrating 3D freehand input and stereo viewing into traditional desktop applications

It is demonstrated that a Hybrid interaction technique, that transitions between 2D display and input, to 3D, mid-task, outperforms 2D only and 3D only techniques.

Multi-viewer gesture-based interaction for omni-directional video

A gesture elicitation study is presented in which users are asked to perform mid-air gestures that they consider to be appropriate for ODV interaction, both for individual as well as collocated settings.

Video Interaction Tools

This article surveys literature at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Multimedia, integrating literature from video browsing and navigation, direct video manipulation, video content visualization, as well as interactive video summarization and interactive video retrieval.

Combating VR sickness through subtle dynamic field-of-view modification

By strategically and automatically manipulating FOV during a VR session, the degree of VR sickness perceived by participants can be reduced and help them adapt to VR, without decreasing their subjective level of presence, and minimizing their awareness of the intervention.

A Study of Layout, Rendering, and Interaction Methods for Immersive Graph Visualization

Information visualization has traditionally limited itself to 2D representations, primarily due to the prevalence of 2D displays and report formats. However, there has been a recent surge in
