Spherical Panorama Fisheye Polar Video Publisher Description
Panoramic videos recorded using single-lens devices, such as those equipped with polar fisheye lens, usually need to be unwrapped in order to be viewed.
Spherical Panorama Fisheye Polar Video Publisher is a relatively straightforward application that enables you to create equirectangular 3D videos and perform various image corrections. However, it is not particularly intuitive, and its UI far from modern.
Unwrap your videos and convert them to various formats
The program allows you import fisheye movies saved to a number of formats, including MOV, AVI, MP4, ASF and MPG, and it is capable of exporting the processed clips to FLV, MP4 and MOV.
The cutting parameters are fully customizable, and you can preview the results in order to ensure the current settings are well optimized.
In addition to unwrapping the source video, it is possible to alter it’s brightness, contrast and sharpness, as well as reduce the noise level. Furthermore, CPU usage during the conversion process can be limited.
Comes with a fairly extensive user manual
Spherical Panorama Fisheye Polar Video Publisher might seem a bit confusing for novices at first, as the layout of the user interface is not exactly intuitive.
Thankfully, however, the application includes documentation that most users should find to be adequate. It provides helpful examples and can make it easier for first-time users to get the hang of things.
Features a very outdated user interface
Spherical Panorama Fisheye Polar Video Publisher does the job it was designed for quite well, and users who care little about looks may not be bothered by the application’s unappealing UI, but a visual upgrade would be more than welcome for future releases.
To sum up, this is a reliable software solution that can help you unwrap videos captured with single-lens 360-degree cameras and convert them to several popular formats. It would benefit from a modernized user interface, but it offers a decent set of features, as well as a detailed user manual.
