Re: Gopro max VR player wont import .360 files

It seems very poor that go pro dont have their own editing software for 360 videos and instead we have to rely on other software providers to pick up where they left off. These cameras are available over a year now with very little gopro support.

Re: Gopro max VR player wont import .360 files

@tommymurphy, apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused you. Windows is a fragmented operating system that covers a myriad of home setups. These setups require video encoding and decoding support for spherical media that need to be tested across multiple devices. For this reason, we’re taking a little more time to get things ready to make sure it meets the expectation of our users.

Software Updates Release Notes can be found here GoPro Player/GoPro MAX Exporter: Release Notes

 

Thank you for your patience as we work through this and for being a GoPro customer.

Re: Gopro max VR player wont import .360 files

Just for clarification, to sum-up/reiterate, the VR Player is a 360° video player. The .360 files from MAX need to be converted first into a standard spherical video file format using GoPro MAX Exporter (Windows) or the GoPro Player (Mac).

Your best free opton is to use DaVinci Resolve with the reframe360  OpenFX Plugin.

 

Best YouTube Video showing workflow: DaVinci Resolve - Reframe Qoocam 8K, Insta360 One R & GoPro Max FREE & DOESN'T SUCK!

 

Hopeful someday Go Pro will provides an option for Windows, but righ now holding breath... 

 

Best regards,

 

Mr. Ventures

Re: Gopro max VR player wont import .360 files

All this is not clear at all to me.

 

On windows (which I remember is the most used OS worldwide) should we wait for GoPro player or should we use GoPro VR player (which doesn't work), GoPro max exporter (which is slow also on high-end pc) or what?

 

It is a shame that in June we still don't have a simple, one-program to reframe our MAX videos...

Re: Gopro max VR player wont import .360 files

Very well said. I bought the GoPro max a few months ago and I still can't use my footage because GoPro has no software to edit the 360 on my windows. They refer to the GOPro VR but that does not edit videos on the PC, it can only do it on the phone which is not an option for me as I don't have enough space there.
