  • Can you help me>? I don`t know how to stitch a raw file format photo from insta 360 because it`s like 2 spheres on the image

  • Thank you very much for the great explanation of what to do with Insta. I bought it a long time ago and is sitting at home. No instruction but just wired films. Can you send directly from the insta360 video to somebody else to do the editing job? Why each time we placed a photo on Facebook it always comes with add from insta360. I'm not crazy about it since I paid for camera. I wonder what photo dimensions we may get? We would like to take and post photos of our rooms to advertise them on the web. Appreciate your answer. Thanks

  • You're the best. I have the Insta360 One R and wondering why it's too hard to edit - I'm using Insta360 Studio (PC), I'm going to try to edit on my iPad instead. :)

  • Great introduction to 360 photography and specifically to this tremendous camera. It is presenters like yourself that anticipate questions people may have and cover them as you progress. It is like you are providing the information your own curiosity went through learning the camera in this situation. Some people may find it too detail but I think it is fine as long as you stay on the general topic. You followed the presentation method I have always used which is picking a specific topic and first tell people up front what your are going to be telling them about, then get into the details of telling them and then the final of the three step process is to summarize of what you told them. Thank you for a great informational/instructional video. You also noted along the way of things for more detail but stayed on track. This led me to subscribe to see anticipated future videos which I am sure will be just as good! Thanks again.

  • I'm a bit late to the party, but this was very helpful. You very frequently start sentences with, "So.... ," which became a bit annoying. You might want to check yourself on this in future videos.

  • Thank You for saving me from wasting more time on Guides which are not even close to Guides....Just to help beginners kindly add one point if the footage is rotating unnecessarily then you need to gyro calibrate the camera. I wasted 2 days in solving this rotating footage issue. Thank you Once again.

  • Hi. Thank you for your tutorial. Great ! When a try to play a .insv file, I receive this message "File contains gyroscopic info. If you need to play video with stabilization effect, please export it via insta360 studio." If I choose , the video freeze on the first image and stops. Impossible to open the file in Insta360 studio 2000 (new version 3.5.0) . BUT all works fine with my old INSV files. Do you have a solution for me ? Best regards.

  • Is it normal that I can not zoom-In and Out while reframing with Inst360 App on my android cellphone? So disappointing :((( It was so easy with GoPro App, but GoPro Max does not have slow-mo... :(

  • Too bad editing can't be done on a PC. I was seriously considering this camera but I refuse to use a tablet or phone for editing the camera video.

  • Extremely helpful and fantastic intro to this! I am REALLY considering it for travel vlog B-roll, extra clips in my photo shoots and cool effects and clips during my photo shoots. I appreciate the hard work!

  • Thank you for all your hard work making this video!

  • ATTENTION ANYONE THAT IS AN ANDROID/PC user. Most of the uneducated idiots leaving comments about how others are dumb fail to get the simple concept that This does not work for Android users which is made up of most of the market. Insta360 are in bed with Apple and do not care about anyone not using anything Apple related.. Even the Insta360 studio is really only usable on a MAC, if you're on a PC forget it. Android and PC users have gotten screwed out of 99% of the options for editing.

  • Thanks for overview. Super helpful.

    Paul HewettPaul Hewettปีที่แล้ว
  • Great tutorial! I was so over whelmed & discouraged from getting a 360 camera because of the editing, etc. but after watching your video I've changed my mind & will be getting one! Thanks again!!
