Google has launched a new Virtual Reality video editor called VR180 Creator. Surprisingly, it is available for Linux and MacOS, not Windows.
When you talk of VR (Virtual Reality), you think of 360-degree vision. However, Google’s idea of capturing/creating VR video content with a 180-degree field of vision is equally interesting. It recently started making it available for manufacturers and developers to let people easily capture VR content without needing to buy a super high-end camera for VR recording.
Now that VR180 cameras are coming to the scene – Google just launched a VR180 Creator tool to let people edit VR content and convert it to a standardized format which can be later edited using Adobe Premier or Final Cut Pro or using Linux video editors.
Google explain in the blog :
With affordable VR180 cameras and the simplified editing process provided by VR180 Creator, you can capture your memories in VR whether it is giving your viewers a tour of your home or bringing your viewers on an adventure with you.
