Website Header Widgets in the WordPress Theme

I've updated the Heaven's Disciples WordPress theme to include widgets in the website header area.

There is an optional top widget area that spans the width of the website content area. Beneath the top widget area are 3 optional widget areas as well.

I've also set up a workflow for automatically deploying the WordPress theme to all Heaven's Disciples websites automatically, whenever I successfully test a new build in the lab environments.

Planet Hadea 360 Video Test 1

YouTube Video
Planet Hadea 360 Video Test 1

I'm currently experimenting with video game engines, virtual reality, and 360 videos at Heaven's Disciples Labs. This video is of Planet Hadea, the closest planet to the Atlantica Sun in the Atlantica System. The following video was rendered using images of one of the planets I created using Space Engine, a game engine.

360 Video Test Results

I've tested the 360 video on YouTube using PSVR.

The camera is too close to the planet.

There's a thin black line that splits the back of the image.

The resolution will also need to be enhanced to 4K for future 360 videos.

Google Earth Studio Early Access

I've been invited by Google to the Google Earth Studio early access.

Google Earth Studio is a web-based animation tool for Google Earth imagery. It allows users to create and render videos using Google Earth.

I'll be using Google Earth Studio, through Heaven's Disciples Labs, to see how it can be used for world building, starting with its use in studying geography, topography, and city planning.

The image below is of downtown Cleveland, Ohio, that I captured from Google Earth Studio.

I'm going to create videos of cityscapes for inspiration in modeling 3D buildings and cities for my video game development.
