The method of converting footage file that’s shot with Entaniya Fisheye 280° to 360° video.

ntaniya Fisheye 280° to 360° video
You can create 360°video from one footage file shot with ”Camera+lens set” that has Entaniya Fisheye 280°attached to modified GoPro camera.

Autopano Video Pro was originally meant for creating 360° VR footage by stitching many videos together. That’s why the prodecure for creating 360° video from only one video file is a bit different than the usual prodecure when using the program.
