360 video stitching software and workflow overview
After shooting your scene with the Freedom360 system, you have multiple video files which need to be combined — stitched and blended — to get a final fully spherical video.
Start by copying the files from the cameras or SD cards to your computer, and sort them into folders for each take/scene. Rename each file in each folder to something like projectX-cam1.mp4, projectX-cam2.mp4, etc. (based on which camera slot they came from). The idea is to have a folder that contains all files for each scene or take.
For the stitching process itself, there are two great solutions provided by the software companies Kolor and VideoStitch. Kolor’s product is Autopano Video/Pro which requires the use of Autopano Pro/Giga (image stitching software). VideoStitch comes as Pro and Extended version and requires PTGui Pro as a calibration tool.
You can purchase licenses for both software packages through our web store. Below are the general links for downloading the software, as well as tutorials and additional support for each application.
