A system and method are disclosed for providing interesting 2D video formats from 360-degree video. The system includes a 360-degree image capturing device paired with a synced 360-degree microphone for audio localization. The system filters to crop 2D frames in four steps: 1) audio identification, 2) visual identification, 3) identifying focus, and 4) object recognition. The system determines the scene that is to be cropped into 2D video format and crops the 360° video frame into a 2D video frame that encompasses the identified person or object. The system then curates or sequences the 2D frames as a story to create the 2D video, which is then delivered. The tailored 2D videos prevent the viewer from missing important scenes captured in a 360° video.
