Exporting Spherical Video

[ New ]

Just bought a Max, in GoPro Player i only see export option for Equirectangular video. Is there not an option to save a spherical video?

 

I am coming from the fusion, i was able to batch import and export 360 videos and save to my desktop. Why is this not an option or am i missing the export fetaure somewhere?

Hi @coolbeach45182

 

What version is the app on?

What are the export settings selected?

You’re article is helpful. But doesn’t explain how export as spherical. Is equirectangular the only option?

in the second picture of the settings. i cannot figure out if there are any other options other than equirectangular. Did GoPro not think people buying a 360 camera wanted to keep content in 360 format?

this support page, mentions "Export + Edit: Export both spherical and traditional .mp4 files that are compatible with other editing software and are ready to be shared on social."

 

This makes it sound like GoPro Player exports in spherical, but cant figure out how to do it.

 

Any suggestions?

Hi @coolbeach45182

 

Can you please try the steps for Rendering your GoPro MAX spherical media on the link shared above.

Once exported open the .mov file using the GoPro Player.

 

Thanks!
