I bought the GoPro Max with the intention of using the reframing software on my computer. I have a very high-end ALIENWARE computer. However, I still cannot do anything with the footage because only a Mac is compatible with the GoPro Player. I extremely disappointed as the software has still yet to be released for windows. Can I please get an estimate when or even if the software will be released on windows? I also only use android which for some reason the GoPro app does not work on my device. I am aware of the GoPro MAX Exporter which pales in comparison to what the GoPro Player is capable of and what I envisioned creating with the overcaptured 360 footage. Again I am left very disappointed,being able to take 360 footage but not being able to do anything with it

I totally agree. It seems strange that GoPro would release a product with features missing for Windows users.... How am I supposed to reframe my footage on my computer without paying for Adobe when Apple users get a free software. Please level the playing field GoPro!

That doesn't sound complicated at all LOL.The whole point of the MAX was to ease the workflow compared to the other 3D cameras. Looks like GoPro took two steps back on that one unless you are a Mac user.

I may be wrong about Handbrake. I've done the following:
Exported with Max Exporter to H265, into Virb. Reads as 360 videos, works fine, quality is trash. GOPRO, LET US ADJUST THE QUALITY FLAGS WITH YOUR EXPORTER!
Reencoded to max quality H265 with Handbrake, imported to Virb, does not read as 360, but quality of raw file is perfect. Some flag for 360 video aren't being transfered over
Renamed cineform .mov to .mp4 and imported to Virb, software is unable to parse it.
Encoded cineform .mov to .mp4 with the free VRencoder software with H265 High Quality preset. Not recognized as 360 by Virb.
Still working on a solution...
