Hello all,

I am a long-time user of LumaFusion who just bought a 360fly camera this week.

I am still new to 360° videos, and thought maybe it would be useful if I share some of the gotchas/tips on this forum!

My workflow is to download the 360° videos from the 360fly camera, import them to Photos, and use the clip in LumaFusion before I export them in YouTube. I have been struggling for a few days to find how to preview the videos locally on my iPad before I upload them to YouTube, and I came accross a web site that implement such a player locally:

The way it works, I can export the movie from LumaFusion to the Files app (using « On my iPad ») or as a movie to Photos, then I select that file from the web page, and I can directly preview it (no data is sent, which is useful on the go, as 360° movie can be large).

I am still in the process of trying to make sense how to add a text overlay that would respect the equirectangular projection, I think Affinity Photos might be able to do it but I haven't been able to find out how as of yet. I will let you know when I find out!

Here is a player that I have found to work for checking my 360 movies that are stored in Photos.
Insta360Player-360° panoramic content player by Shenzhen Arashi Vision Co., Ltd.
It was written for the Insta360 line of cameras but it works on any 360 mp4 that I have tried.
They also provide a free editor (Insta360 Studio) that will do a lot of the 360 stuff on their website.
Here is a link to the Insta360 download section. ... 89f76e.0.0

Here are some examples of what I have done with 360 in LumaFussion. Save source video but two different outputs.
One is 16:9 360 Flat pano and the other is a 2:1 mono 360 VR. Both feature a Picture-In-Picture effect that I added with LumaFussion.

Flat 16:9

360 2:1 mono
