If your camera exports a spherical fisheye or dual fisheye footage, some editing softwares require you to convert your footage into equirectangular format before you can edit them. Others, like Pinnacle Studio will work with these and convert them into equirectangular format for editing. If you have a device that captures your footage by stitching multiple cameras together (ex. a device that holds 6 GoPros to capture all 360 degrees), you will still be required to use stitching software to create a 360 file, video editing and stitching software are two very different things.
KineMaster is one of the most powerful video editor apps available. You can do the basics like most of these other video editors can. However, this one includes multiple video, image and effect layers. Additionally, there are audio filters, chroma key (for your green screen fans out there), various video effects, transitions, and more. It's not as powerful as a full desktop editor. However, this gets much closer than most other competitors. We would recommend this for actual video production (at least for stuff like YouTube). You can use it for free in trial mode for a while. However, you'll need the $4.99 per month subscription to get everything forever.
360-degree videos, also known as immersive videos[1] or spherical videos,[2] are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras. During playback on normal flat display the viewer has control of the viewing direction like a panorama. It can also be played on a displays or projectors arranged in a sphere or some part of a sphere.
Cameo is another really good video editor app for iPhone, developed by the folks over at Vimeo. The app offers very basic video editing capabilities, but works really well. The interface is clean, and intuitive, and if you just want to perform a couple of basic edits on your video, Cameo is the perfect option. The app can import photos and videos from the camera roll, and you can easily trim them, add music, themes, and more. You can even adjust the intensity of the theme applied to the video, to get the perfect effect.
Once your video is exported to a mobile device, to have your audience jump into the full experience, consider picking up a VR headset. Quality of the headset can range anywhere from purchasing a cardboard VR viewer for a few dollars to investing in a higher end model. You may want to even consider going the extra mile and picking up a headset that that includes an audio plugin to create that surreal virtual reality environment and take your viewer into the scene.
360-degree video is typically recorded using either a special rig of multiple cameras, or using a dedicated camera that contains multiple camera lenses embedded into the device, and filming overlapping angles simultaneously. Through a method known as video stitching, this separate footage is merged into one spherical video piece, and the color and contrast of each shot is calibrated to be consistent with the others.[4][5] This process is done either by the camera itself, or using specialized software such as Mistika VR or Kolor AVP that can analyze common visuals and audio to synchronize and link the different camera feeds together. Generally, the only area that cannot be viewed is the view toward the camera support.[6][7]
FilmoraGo is a video editor app by Wondershare. It's easily one of the best video editor apps. This video editor packs a whallop. You can do the basics like trim and cut, render, and that kind of stuff. It also includes the ability to play in reverse, do square videos (1:1) for Instagram, and 16:9 videos for YouTube specifically. It also has support for things like slow motion, transitions, music, overlays, and more. It's not half bad for what you get. There are in-app purchases that add to the power. However, most of the features are, in fact, free.

Quik is another iPhone video editor app from GoPro. With Quik, you can quickly create good looking videos with just a few taps. The app has the option to import photos and videos from the photo library, or your Facebook, or Instagram account. Once you’ve selected the photos and videos you want to edit, you get the option to add Hilights to the video clips (just like in Splice). However, you get the options to change the format between cinema, and square. Also, you can change the background music for the video, as well add a plethora of filters to the video. Quik also has the option to add a title to the video.

The Android version has 5 types of 8mm film filters and a “Manual” option to adjust the levels of saturation, contrast and brightness, as well as the level of intensity of the effects. While the iOS version has a combination of 7 film filters and 10 different types of lenses, in addition to many other functions, such as a function to adjust focus and exposure.
Snapseed is another great basic photo editing app, but with features that make it slightly more geared towards the professional user. For example, with Snapseed, you can focus in on a certain point of the image and bring it to life with enhanced lighting and focusing features. This makes it perfect for marketers who depend on images to sell their products.
In addition to replacing the camcorder, your smartphone can also be used as a video editor. There are a variety of different apps available on the market today for editing video. From basic video editors that let you trim out pieces of your video you don’t want, to themed editors that let you change the frame rate and filter of your video to make it look like an old school 8mm film.
