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.
Our free version is great for trials and proof of concept. It's also a good choice for students, nonprofits and can be used for commercial purposes as well. We still encourage our business users to go PRO to squeeze the maximum out of this offiering and secure a year of free support and upgrades.

In March 2015, YouTube launched support for publishing and viewing 360-degree videos, with playback on its website and its Android mobile apps. Parent company Google also announced that it would collaborate with camera manufacturers to make it easier for creators to upload 360-degree content recorded with their products to YouTube.[13] However, in 2017, Google and YouTube began to promote an alternative stereoscopic video format known as VR180, which is limited to a 180-degree field of view, but is promoted as being more accessible to produce than 360-degree video, and allowing more depth to be maintained by not subjecting the video to equirectangular projection [8][16]
Note the word "try" to upgrade to the latest version, because checking for updates didn't change anything for me. To issue such advice also sounds like an admission that the auto update is problematic. As far as I am concerned it is too unreliable for me to depend on it, so 360 Total Security Essential is now uninstalled from my computers and I am uising something else instead.

– Add titles anywhere in your 360 video.  Adding titles to 360 video is a little tricky because if you simply overlay titles on the video, they will look warped as you move higher or lower from the ‘equator’ of your 360 video.  With Virb Edit, you can add titles that will automatically be mapped to your 360 video, keeping the normal proportions of the text no matter where you place them.  Even Adobe Premiere Pro doesn’t do this (you need a plug in)!
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.
Video editors like Pinnacle Studio Ultimate offer 360 video editing that allow you to take your 360 footage to the next level.

During the editing process, you can trim or clip videos, add titles or graphics and edit the 360-degree video clips as footage captured with a 4K or Full HD cameras.

Once the video editing process is complete you can export your 360-degree videos to Facebook, Vimeo or YouTube platforms directly from the Pinnacle Studio Ultimate or you can save them to your computer and watch them on a VR headset or on a 360-degree video player.
