Are you injecting the metadata back into the video?

I have a guide for editing a 360 video with Adobe Premiere Pro VR Mode. Although the tutorial covers only a file saved from live streaming, it is applicable for any 360 video. I suspect that if you inject the metadata back in, your video will start working in 360.

In fact besides with theta video editor, I also tried out some other similar ones like YouTube FLAC Converter, Wondershare and Faasoft, most of which are free and cheap although not as good as theta since it is the best editor I have ever used before.

Did you try injecting the metadata?

You can use this tool.

I've never used your software, but these are the settings I use on Adobe Premiere Pro.
You don't need to mess with the VR settings unless you're editing in a VR view.


The editing window looks like this on Adobe Premiere Pro VR mode.


Most likely, you just need to inject the metadata back in after editing and the VR features will start working again.

Hello ,
I got my Theta S and made some videos and uploaded on Youtube but my questions is how can I add a music on my video because if I want to do in on Youtube the result won't be 360, and also how to remove my tripod from the video, would you guys suggest me an application or software, thanks. Can I add music with iMovie?

This List of RICOH THETA Apps covers video editing in 360 degrees, including adding music: iMovie does NOT handle 360 just yet, as far I as know. (I'd like it if it did!)

And here's a post on creating a "custom nadir," or removing the tripod from the picture:

If you try out something and you like it, I'd love to hear about it. At the bottom of the first link (for the List of Apps), adding a comment there will help to improve the list for everyone.

Good luck!

If you'd like to edit any videos including the DRM and non-DRM videos, you can use the itunes m4v converter. It cna help you preview and edit videos in real time. You can adjust the video playback speed, add a logo, add a filter and so on.

happy glass
Can’t explain it. My edited and injected video has exactly the same properties as the stitched material from the Theta App. Unedited stitched material from the Theta app does not display these black pole caps when uploaded to YouTube.

Franz, I have the same problem, I'm using iMovie and the output is 4k at High quality.

When I import the stitched MP4 it is playing back at an odd frame rate and not syncing with the audio.. :ugeek: :ugeek:

anyone know what settings to make a sequence?
