I hope they are capturing with high-resolution cameras so that you can do more than turn your head, but actually "move" through the environment without loosing clarity. I mean, could you imagine 360 if you were strapped to a single position for two hours, or worse, if you have a director doing fast cuts of a song? First would be boring, the later would be vomit-inducing
