How to render 3D and 360° Videos for Youtube and Facebook

In this Tutorial, we will be looking at how to Render out 3D and/or 360° Videos. (You should note that if you render it as a 3D and a 360° Video the render time will be quite high.) After you have rendered out a video with the new settings we can use Youtube's amazing little program to inject some data into our videos.

Once it has been injected it can be played right away or be uploaded to where ever you want.

I make Youtube tutorials for blender Users. From CG and VFX to Animations, Shorts and Asset Creation. I upload tutorials once a week along with any assets we create for you to use in your own projects.


  1. That's a nice concise description of the workflow. Unless I missed something it looks like you are rendering the same frame out several times. If there is no animation in the scene then all you need to do is render a single frame and then encode that followed by the metadata injection. Admittedly that uses an extra step with the compositor but can save a lot of time for static scenes.

    • Hey thanks for the comment!.. The space outside it animated and so is the computer screen to the right. That being said, I could have just rendered out the main scene once then rendered out the moving space and computer screen and then comp them together (probably would have saved me some time).. Anyway thanks again for the comment!
