Google Releases its Virtual Reality Video Editing tool For Mac and Linux Not windows.

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 :

VR180 cameras allow creators to shoot three-dimensional, immersive photos and videos using affordable cameras that are small enough to fit in your pocket.

And to make it even easier for you to create and edit high quality VR videos, we’re launching VR180 Creator on Mac and Linux. This desktop tool lets anyone edit VR180 footage with existing VR video tools.

VR180 Creator currently offers two features for VR videos. “Convert for Publishing” takes raw fisheye footage from VR180 cameras like the Lenovo Mirage Camera and converts it into a standardized equirect projection. This can be edited with the video editing software creators already use, like Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro. “Prepare for Publishing” re-injects the VR180 metadata after editing so that the footage is viewable on YouTube or Google Photos in 2D or VR.

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.
