GoPro Omni Importer

With GoPro Omni, everything is easy!

AVP ONLY With the GoPro Omni Importer, all you need to do is direct the importer to your SD cards and the importer handles the rest: it will find, organize and sort your different scenes and give you an initial raw stitch before even importing anything on your computer!
From there, you can render the video directly, or move on to Autopano Video Pro and Autopano Giga with the click of a button to fine-tune your videos.

unique feature Automatic stitching based on Autopano’s state-of-the-art technology
SIFT algorithm included in Autopano has been mathematically proven as the best in the world for recognizing control points between images.
unique feature Range stitching on a selection
The stitching on a selection allows to stitch on a sequence of the video, using the best instants for each video pair automatically. This function gives very good results for videos with not enough details.
unique feature Stereoscopic stitching
Autopano Video Pro is now able to handle stereoscopic videos thanks to a new interface. Assign each video source to an output eye. Render without the need of creating manual masks.
Fine tune the stitching of tricky cases
Edit the links and control points between your cameras for tricky or imprecise stitching cases or take control of the seams between your cameras with the Mask tool in Autopano Giga.

unique feature RMS curve
See in real time the RMS at each frame of the video. Useful to see where in the video the stitching could be problematic.
Template-based stitching
If you use a strongly-constructed rig, you can use stitching templates instead of launching a detection for each new project. This mode works only if the content is always at the same distance of the camera. With moving content or moving cameras, automatic detection (see above) is preferred over the template-based stitching. Once you have created your template(s), Autopano Video becomes autonomous: you don’t need to open Autopano Pro/Giga anymore.
