Re: GoPro Fusion Blurred ring/stitching

you won't get a perfect seemfree video from live preview, the main stitching is done once the video has been rendered via Fusion Studio

Re: GoPro Fusion Blurred ring/stitching

Fusion Studio (desktop app) does the best job of stitching and correcting the footage. On the mobile app, it only looks good once you output the picture or video. While viewing it, like in these shots, the stitching hasn't been applied yet (done once you output to a new file), so it's hard to determine if the results you are getting are good or not. The app is not nearly as good as the desktop for stabilizing and stitching, but you can get usable results.

When it comes to lighting, you want to make sure the light source is hitting both lenses equally. This can be a little challenging and sometimes you will get off balance results. Also, just to keep in mind when shooting, everything in the center of each lens is going to be the sharpest and have the most detail. It tends to get a little softer toward the edges and through the stitch line. Still better than most 360 cameras, but something to keep in mind.

Re: GoPro Fusion Blurred ring/stitching

i must be getting preferential treatment, because i'm getting fed up of having to say "mines fine" when people keep saying GoPro's are buggy & don't work. Perhaps GoPro keep sending me the only ones that are any good & selling all the duff ones to Joe Public lol (ps I have only ever bought 1 direct from GoPro)

Re: GoPro Fusion Blurred ring/stitching

hi @fastpeak01042

 

have you solved the stitching issue with the support ?

I have the same issue.

Thank's for your help.

Re: GoPro Fusion Blurred ring/stitching

Not really to be honest. It does look better in post production but through the app it's bad.
