GoPro Fusion images not appearing correctly

Hi, I handheld the camera with the included stick extended and retracted but the images and video i viewed on the phone is not appearing correctly. I got the fusion today and immediately upgraded the firmware to 1.8. Did i get a lemon or its supposed to be like that?

Re: GoPro Fusion images not appearing correctly

 

Hi @fireycave63224

 

The is a normal procedure (stitching) since the Fusion lens are offset from one another

Using the mount moves the camera away from your hand and helps reduce the chances that your hand appears in the shot. The farther the distance of the subject, the better the stitching. 

Also, the live preview of this stitching appearance will be present on the GoPro App. This is a normal procedure since it is doing a live stitch.

Or you can also bring the footage into Fusion Studio and check mark the D.Warp option prior to rendering the clip to improve the stitch lines.

 

For additional information, please check this article: Fusion Tips Tricks

 

Thanks!

Re: GoPro Fusion images not appearing correctly

Hi @aragon1006

I extended the stick fully but still the stitching issue persist.

Do you mean that if i view on my app it will appear like that until i bring it to fusion studio to correct it?

Hmmm ok at least im assured i didnt get a lemon :)

Re: GoPro Fusion images not appearing correctly

Fusion Studio does a MUCH better job of rendering the image without a stitch line. That being said, for the shot you provided you need to extend the Fusion out away from the building. Always strive to have equal lighting hitting both lenses and also keep both lens at least three feet away from any objects. It's not always possible, but something you should conscientiously be trying to do when filming.

@fireycave63224

I noticed.  But I also noticed how close the building is to the back lens.

Re: GoPro Fusion images not appearing correctly

Just FYI, Fusion doesn't have to be held straight up and down.
