Samsung Gear 360 camera support

by OpusMcN » Fri Jun 10, 2016 3:20 am


Support for video from the Samsung Gear 360 camera would be great. The video comes in as a single file with the front/back views side by side, and 190-ish degree FOV on each camera. Cropping out the each video is a pain, and the stitching doesn't handle the back-to-back videos particularly well. The software included in with the Gear 360 is pretty primitive and slow (no stabilize, no color correction), being able to do better stitching on these would be a fine thing.



(I can provide sample videos if needed)

Hi.. Sad to say, Kolor are not really Kolor anymore.. They are K-GoPro.. So, the question is.. why would they support a competitor..?? Personally, i feel the talents in Kolor will be far too restricted to just supporting the GoPro since Kolor are owned by GoPro.. Personally, i would not even buy a GoPro camera since the only option would be to spend heaps and heaps of money for a bunch of cameras and a rig that can never be perfect.. Other options will arrive, including the Samsung, but sad to say that mob might not have the same skills Kolor techs have.. So they might not be able to develop a Video App which can output a quality video.. I also feel that unless GoPro pull a decent option out of their hat, other mobs like Nikon and Samsung will take over the Action Camera market leaving GoPro wondering where their market share went....

I second this feature request. It would be especially useful to have an option to import dual fisheye lens videos (as generated by the Gear 360 or Theta S) directly into Autopano Video without having to manualy seperate them first.

Regarding the GoPro thing: as paying customers we also have the right to request support for other products.

The GoPro option appears to have the best quality output by a big margin.

Duplicate the video file? To be frank, that's at best a workaround to a lack of a feature.

The Samsung Gear 360 camera is bringing you more business. Even though Samsung's own stitching is kinda OK, it's clear some Gear 360 owners prefer to do it with more control and better features - which AutoPano can offer. Making AutoPano Video Pro a bit more versatile would help you get even more happy buyers and users of AutoPano. :)
