"Circular" Pans?

So, I’m writing a story and I really want to draw the reader in to my story. It should feel like a television show. How can I make smooth 360 pans that look natural?

If I understand you correctly, you want to make a whole circle?? I’m not familiar they use that in tv shows. But ok…
What you would probably need is both sided backgrounds.

Now it depends how many zones it has. If it has 3, maybe you would do like this…
Start the scene with @cut to zone 1 AND zoom on 0 275 to 150% in 0
Continue with zooming little up in zone 1, like: @zoom on 160 460 to 150% in 1
Then… pan to zone 2 in 1.5 AND zoom on 160 460 to 150% in zone 2 in 1.5
Then pan to zone 3 in 1.5 AND zoom on 160 460 to 150% in zone 3 in 1.5
After then you need to make smooth circle more down, let’s say… @zoom on 320 275 to 150% in zone 3 in 1

Then you set the other side background and @cut to zone 3 AND zoom on 320 275 to 150% in zone 3 in 0
Again you need to zoom little higher in same zone 3, like: @zoom on 160 460 to 150% in zone 3 in 1

Continue to zone 2: @zoom on 160 460 to 150% in zone 2 in 1.5
Then to zone 1: @zoom on 160 460 to 150% in zone 1 in 1.5
And smoothly turn it to the middle, back to the starting point: @zoom on 0 275 to 150% in zone 1 in 1

I have no idea it that would work, I’m just talking out of my head.
