Autopano, the world reference in image-stitching technology, is used by Kolor Autopano Video Pro to stitch and create 360-degree immersive videos. What Autopano did with your images, Autopano Video Pro can do it with your videos! Kolor Autopano Video Pro lets you stitch several videos into a single one covering up to 360 x 180 degrees. The user interface is designed to ease your workflow: drag and drop your source videos, choose a stitching template (including GoPro template) and click on Stitch.
With this Pro version of Autopano Video, GPU rendering reduces rendering time by 15X. Note that users have to own an Autopano Pro or Giga (at least version 3) license to establish the inital stitch.

Autopano Video Pro uses automatic stitching based on Autopano's state-of-the-art technology. The interface is intuitive and pleasant. This latter will allow you to get benefit of the nearly real-time preview before rendering your final result. Thanks to the batch processing, prepare several 360° video projects and render them at a later time.
The user interface is designed to ease your workflow: drag and drop your source videos, choose a stitching template (including GoPro template) and click on Stitch. It's childsplay.
Autopano Video Pro relies on Autopano Pro or Giga image-stitching software to let you precisely adjust the horizon, the colors, the 9 projections mode and use all the tools of the panorama editor. Make your adjustements and save the project. The video preview is automatically updated in Autopano Video Pro.
There are two options to synchronise your videos. If all video streams have sound, Autopano Video Pro can synchronise them automatically. You can also adjust each stream if no sound is available.
Case study: Vimeo Video School: Ryan Staake explains how to shoot a 360 degree video with a drone
Once we shot the footage, we stitched all seven shots together using a stitching software, Autopano Video Pro. The first step is to synchronize all of the cameras. When shooting, they’re all triggered to record at roughly the same time via GoPro’s wireless remote, but this is never a perfect process. Have a look at the project
