Re: Shadows when stitching 360 video, GoPro Max

It’s worth noting that this issue persists only in the in-app downloaded footage (before any rendering or reframing). It dissolves once it’s rendered. Still curious if this is normal and what causes it technically.

Re: Shadows when stitching 360 video, GoPro Max

the issue with shadows is never gone on 360 footage just when reframing.

Re: Shadows when stitching 360 video, GoPro Max

I got the same issue.

I stay in one open area and shot 360 video, 360 photo.

That 360 photo no obvious shadows issue.

That 360 video got shadows in the video when I downloaded it and watch it on my iPhone XR gopro app.

That 360 video got shadows in the video when I uploaded it to youtube by my iPhone XR gopro app.

That 360 video doesn't have that obvious shadows in the video when I reframe it in 1080P by my iPhone XR gopro app. (Sure I keep pointing the shadow area it uses to have when I reframe it)

That 360 video doesn't have that obvious shadows in the video after I downloaded it from the sd card & watched it by gopro player on my macbook pro.

 

I think that is an app issue on IOS.

Someone said Andriod got no issue on this (I haven't fact-checked).

 

Anyway, anyone from Gopro can make a comment on this?

Re: Shadows when stitching 360 video, GoPro Max

yes I just checked on my mac with gopro player app and shadows are reduced, there is still a slight difference in contrast on the stitching line but not as big as the one on ios devices

But stitching line is more notisable when using macbook app as you can see here:

And the camera was like at 3 or 4 meter away from there.

Re: Shadows when stitching 360 video, GoPro Max

Yes , I can clearly confirm the exact behaviour . It is visible under any lightsituation and regardless how far or near the object is, but the more the lower the light is .

It is clearly a stitching problem, but the way the 2 lenspictures are overlapping.....looks like the lumavalues are beeing added.

Sorry about that.

- For Preview / Live: you will see the stitching line - the live preview doesn't have the final stitching, the full / final and clean stitching is applied when you areactually recording. 

- The issue with the shadow is also related to stitching, the team is working on it for the next firmware update. I do not have the info about when this will be out though.
