360-degree videos are typically viewed via personal computers, mobile devices such as smartphones, or dedicated head-mounted displays. Users can pan around the video by clicking and dragging. On smartphones, internal sensors such as the gyroscope can also be used to pan the video based on the orientation of the device. Taking advantage of this behavior, stereoscope-style enclosures for smartphones (such as Google Cardboard viewers and the Samsung Gear VR) can be used to view 360-degree videos in an immersive format similar to virtual reality. The phone display is viewed through lenses contained within the enclosure, as opposed to virtual reality headsets that contain their own dedicated displays.[13][14][15]
It starts with SpotEditor, a one of a kind publishing software for Windows and Mac. The software includes a variety of image processing functions and configuration options designed specifically for the efficient handling of 360 product photography and 3D CAD images. Simply start by importing your unprocessed or fully processed images into the software and hit Publish to see the immediate results.
Say for an example, at the time of a search mission or rescue mission SkyStitch can provide panoramic view of 360 degree in high resolution to help and guide the emergency professionals. The benefit of this video stitching software is so strong that it can combine 12 HD quality videos in single frame within just 50 milliseconds even at prototype stage. The market value for such systems is going to hit billions of dollars in the near future.
Even though our product viewer comes with several templates and skins designed to work with pretty much any website, it also allows advanced customizations via simple CSS to give your 3D product views a one of a kind look. For truly unique product tours and bespoke features, use our API (programming interface) that gives you full control over all major functions.
Did a few basic edits (changed orientation & few fades) and the export was at 4k without any problem. (the options were 720 & 4k) Did notice that the audio was out of sync though. (Test footage came from the YI VR 360 downloaded at 4k from Youtube, rather than ‘actual’ 360 footage) My intention would be to use Cyberlink Powerdirector 15, however it does not currently offer (I don’t believe) the option to select the initial orientation, which I believe would be a useful feature.

While all of these 360 video player software provide basic playback features to watch 360 degree videos, some of them provide advance functionalities too. These features include video tuning and applying filters, changing playback speed, zooming videos, changing view mode, rotating or flipping videos, adding subtitles to videos, changing aspect ratio, and many more. One of these software also lets you convert 360 degree video to other video formats after modifying it. Most of these free 360 video player software support HD video quality.
Every 360 video connects to a smartphone for full functionality so the quickest way to edit your 360 content is to do so on your phone. This is particularly useful if you just want to make a few simple edits rather than anything too complicated. There are dozens of apps in every app store that lets you do this, but they don’t all work well. I use 4 in particular to edit my 360 photos/videos, add filters, combine footage and create animations; if you download just these 4 apps you should be sorted for editing your 360 content on the go.
The V360 is very similar to the Collect app in that its specifically designed for editing 360 video. Select any 360 video from the app and you’ll be able to preview it in full 360 mode, merge slips, shorten or delete sections and add music. The functionality of the V360 is fairly basic but really easy to use and could be a great alternative if you don’t get on with the more unique style of the collect app.
Overall, 360 IS's general interface remained easy to use but also lacks a bit of direction in some areas. There is a decent number of useful tools under the hood, but not a whole lot of obvious signs of the existence of these monitoring features, at least at first glance. It's both good and bad in that for the casual user, the malware scanner is front and center while most other complex tools, options, and features stay out of the way. And though it does reduce the prospect of overwhelming any users with ambiguous tools, those who are more into in-depth monitoring will have to do a bit of minor digging; but overall, things aren't too hard to find despite the minimal guidance.

A few years ago, Skybox Composer plugin that offers support for editing immersive videos has become available for Adobe After Effects. Today, a few years later the plugin has been replaced with a built-in feature called VR Comp Editor, that can be accessed from the software's Windows menu. Its users can choose between 2D Edit (Monoscopic) and 3D Edit (Stereoscopic) options, view the footage from the Point of View perspective and post-process the 360-degree footage in the same way they would edit the 'flat' footage.
360-degree video is typically formatted in an equirectangular projection[8] and is either monoscopic, with one image directed to both eyes, or stereoscopic, viewed as two distinct images directed individually to each eye for a 3D effect.[6] Due to this projection and stitching, equirectangular video exhibits a lower quality in the middle of the image than at the top and bottom.[8] Spherical videos are frequently in curvilinear perspective with a fisheye effect. The heavy barrel distortion often requires rectilinear correction before applications in detection, tracking or navigation.[9]
