Edit 360 Video with VideoPad Video Editor

We have just released a new feature for VideoPad - 360 Video Editing. VideoPad will now support editing for 360 degree video clips, also known as spherical or immersive video. With this new release you will be able to edit both monoscopic and stereoscopic 360 video clips.

360 degree video is often referred to as VR video, or spherical video. While these terms are often used interchangeably, they do describe slightly different viewing modes. Technically, VR video describes a computer generated environment. 360 video is captured by multiple cameras simultaneously, allowing users to move throughout a video as they would in 3D. 

Preview 360 Degree Video in VideoPad

When editing 360 degree video in VideoPad, you can preview your video in the VideoPad editor. To preview your video with a 360 degree view, toggle on the "360" button in the bottom right corner of the video preview window. You can click and drag on the video preview to move the camera angle in order to view all 360 degrees of your video clip.

Add Music to 360 Video

With VideoPad you can add background music or other audio tracks to your 360 video projects. To add audio to a video, simply load the audio clip that you would like to add into VideoPad, and then drag and drop your audio clip onto the timeline where it says "Drag and drop audio tracks here to mix". You can mix in background music to your 360 degree video with this method, or you can replace the original audio. To remove an audio track from a video clip, click on the "unlink" button that appears on the original audio track when the video clip is added to the timeline. This will unlink the original audio from the video clip. You can remove the original audio by right clicking on the audio track and selecting "Delete" from the right click menu. 

Add Stunning Effects to 360 Video

As with regular video clips, you can apply VideoPad's video effects to 360 degree videos. You can use this to create unique coloration in your video using the coloring effects, or you can add motion effects or overlays to your video. Most effects, such as color filters and transitions, can be applied to 360 degree video clips with no issues. However, overlays and text clips will be skewed by spherical 360 degree videos. To add overlays to 360 video, simply apply the "Place in 360" effect from the Video Effects menu.  

Add Text to 360 Video

Adding text to a 360 video is easy with VideoPad. To add a text overlay to a 360 degree video clip, create a text clip by clicking on the option labeled "Add Text". Use the editing options to change the text color, font and size of your text clip. Once you are finished, you can drag and drop your text clip onto the VideoPad timeline where it says "Drag and drop your video, text and image clips here to overlay". Once your text clip is placed, you can can extend or reduce the duration of the text clip by dragging the text clip edges left or right on the timeline. You can also move the text clip to different locations in your video by dragging the whole clip left or right.
When you add a text clip to a 360 degree video, be sure to apply the "Place in 360" effect from the Video Effects menu to make text clips appear naturally in 360 video clips.

Share 360 Video Projects Directly to YouTube and Facebook

VideoPad can connect directly to Facebook and YouTube to post 360 videos as soon as you have finished editing them. Both Facebook and YouTube have been on the cutting edge as two of the first networks to support 360 video, and VideoPad can connect and share video projects with just a few clicks. Once you have finished editing your 360 video project in VideoPad, click on the arrow to the right of "Export Video File" to open the export dropdown menu. To share your video to YouTube or Facebook, click on the menu option for the network that you would like to share to. Follow the prompts to log in to your account and share your video with your subscribers or friends.

360 videos capture video in multiple directions, allowing viewers to move the camera angle in the same way they would view the 3D world. Viewers can move the camera angle in 360 videos in order to see surroundings.

Common Use of 360 Video

360 video can be extremely advantageous for realtors, property managers, and other real estate professionals. 360 video can be used to create tours to show apartment floor plans or to allow potential buyers to easily view sale and rental properties prior to physically visiting the property. 360 tours offer viewers a more comprehensive impression of a property than images alone, and can be used as successful marketing materials to spur interest in properties.

360 video is also popular for adventurers, hikers, skiers, and more. 360 videos can boost engagement on social sites where 360 degree video has been adopted, such as Facebook and YouTube.

  1. I have version 6.1 and love the program (I bought the program). I would like to be able to set the initial point of view in my 360 videos. I do not see how I can do that. Anyone have experience with it?
