GoPro Fusion - Changing default field of view

[ New ]

I recently did some 360 filming inside the cockpit of a small helicopter and when I export the stitch photos/videos out of the Studio app, everything is really zoomed in. When I open up the photos/videos in gopro VR Player I'm able to zoom out to the perspective I want to have.

 

However, I'll be uploading these photos/videos to Facebook and every time I do that, the photos revert back to being too zoomed in and not zoomed out like they are in Gopro's VR Player. Unfortunately Facebook doesn't allow users to zoom in or out of the photos to get the proper perspective.

 

Is there a way I can change the field of view in GoPro Studio to be more zoomed out and maintain that perspective at the default? See examples below.

In the Gopro Fusion Studio, make sure you have selected "Overcapture" from the settings.  Then you'll need to change your FOV slider in order to zoom in or out.

In overcapture mode, doesn't it just export a 2d image? I'd like to keep the 360 ability so people can look around inside the entire helicopter cabin and just change the default field of view to be more zoomed out instead of zoomed in.

@tallsided, OverCapture will let you to create traditional, non-spherical videos. Fusion Studio currently do not have a zoom (ease-in/out) keyframe available, and Facebook also doesn't allow to zoom in/out of the uploaded 360 footage. Anyhow, your feedback is very much appreciated. I'll have this information shared to the team in charge.

Thanks for the response @aenriquez 

 

To clarify, I'm not looking to add keyframes or zooms to the video. I just want the default view of the video to be more zoomed out when people watch it on facebook. I uploaded a screen capture video here for a better context of what I'm trying to do. You'll see the initial default framing of the 360 video is zoomed right in. Then I zoom it out to show what I want the default FOV to be when people look at it on Facebook.

I'm assuming your response implies there's no way to do the simple adjustment I want to make to Fusion photos and videos?

@tallsided, yes, zooming in/out of the 360 footage and setting it as a default (on preview) isn't currently an available function in the Fusion Studio. This can only be done through the VR player after the content is rendered.

@aenriquez is there any other software programs or plug ins you can recommend that would give me this ability?

@tallsided, the GoPro Fusion files are compatible to work with Adobe Premiere CC, having the plugins installed. For further reference, check out this article. If you still want the full 360 functionality when footage is uploaded to Facebook, you will have to export the content as a 360 or VR media. I'm not completely sure on how to go around this process though, I suggest that you reach out to Adobe Support team for more details about their app.

 

Anyhow, you may also check via Google for other third-party editing applications search that has the function you need. Yet, please do your research on whichever app is best for you as it may require activation of the software and there may be varying costs.

If you use something like Adobe Premier with the GoPro VR Pluggin, you can then render a 360 video and adjust the FOV to give the type of view that you want.
