muvee releases 360 Slideshow Software for Mac OS X

You can now easily create 360 immersive music slideshows with Samsung Gear 360 photos

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 10 Oct, 2017 – muvee Technologies, the pioneer and leader in automatic video editing technology, today announced a major upgrade to the popular muvee 360 Video Stitcher Software for Mac.  In addition to being able to play, trim and stitch 360 videos, users will now also be able to add music tracks and create slideshows with 360 photos.  

It will also automatically stitch photos and videos taken by the popular Samsung Gear 360 (both 2016 and 2017 versions).  Now users of the popular 360 camera can use it with their Macs.  All videos and slideshows created are also automatically packaged with the necessary meta-data to playback on YouTube and Facebook for instant sharing.  This is also the only Mac app under $50 which supports all the basic features to stitch, trim, add music and playback 360 videos on the market today.

muvee 360 Video Stitcher software will be available in Home and ProStudio variants.  The Home variant is targeted at consumers who capture their travel and adventures in 360 and needs to quickly trim and add music for sharing on social media, creating their own YouTube channels or create presentations for a school project.  The ProStudio version is designed for enthusiasts and prosumers who wish to stitch many videos for further editing and processing on other popular Mac editing platforms.  ProStudio supports exporting 360 videos in the almost lossless ProRes video format which is supported by many popular video editing software like Apple’s Final Cut Pro.  The table below summarizes the key features and differences between both variants.

360 photos and videos are taking the world by storm.  With very affordable cameras like the Samsung Gear 360 and Nikon Mission 360, consumers are able to capture their world and immersively share on Facebook and YouTube.  Until recently, expensive cumbersome software was needed to produce such content.  Now everyone can create their personal 360 content easily and ensure it plays properly in the highest quality online”, says Terence Swee, Founder, and CEO of muvee Technologies, an avid traveler, and 360 camera user.

According to TechNavio, the global 360 camera market is expected to triple in size by the end of this decade, growing by 35% each year, with the top 5 leaders being Ricoh Theta, Nikon Mission 360 Series, LG 360 Cam, Insta 360 and the Samsung Gear360. (source)  With the support of Facebook and YouTube and the advent of VR headsets, we expect this space to see a lot of innovation.  Already many consumer models feature the ability to capture 4K and beyond.
