The use of the term "virtual reality" to describe 360-degree video has been disputed, as VR typically refers to interactive experiences wherein the viewer's motions can be tracked to allow real-time interactions within a virtual environment, with orientation and position tracking. In 360-degree video, the locations of viewers are fixed, viewers are limited to the angles captured by the cameras, and cannot interact with the environment. The non-dynamic nature of video also means that rendering techniques cannot be used to reduce the risk of motion sickness.[21][22]

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.

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]

Use your cursor (or finger if you have a touchscreen) to move your perspective up/down, left/right or tilted directions.

Advertising has traditionally been regarded as an interruption of the actual experience that people are trying to have — be it watching a TV show, reading a newspaper or magazine or browsing a website. But we're now seeing the emergence of a new kind of advertising, one that's in itself so entertaining and engaging that it has the potential to become an experience in its own right.
Ads. You can’t escape them whether it’s on the small screen or your computer. Most of the ones you encounter in your browser exist to push a product or service while occasionally earning the site a bit of cash.

Commercials for the Super Bowl are famous for being can't-miss "events." With interactive mobile ads, all advertising can aspire to that same level of anticipation and engagement. Even in these early days of appvertising, some rules of thumb are already starting to surface. Here are a few tips to consider as you think about your strategy for the medium.
Your earnings from video ads will depend on the pricing of the specific video ads you display. Video ads can be either cost-per-click or cost-per-thousand-impressions. When paid on a CPC basis, you'll receive earnings for each valid clickthrough on ad -- that is, a click on the display URL or playing video that directs a user to the advertisers' website. When paid on a CPM basis, you'll be paid for impressions of the opening image, rather than plays of the video.

In the midrange, there's Adobe Premiere Elements, which is cross-platform between Macs and PCs, and offers a lot more features and lots of help with creating effects. Professionals and prosumers have powerful, though pricey options in Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro. Final Cut is a deceptively simple application that resembles iMovie in its interface and ease of use, but it offers massively deep capabilities, and many third-party apps integrate with it for even more power. It also makes excellent use of the Touch Bar on the latest MacBook Pro, as shown in photo above. Premiere Pro uses a more traditional timeline and adds a large ecosystem of companion apps and plug-ins. It also excels in collaboration features.
