@Diverjon

Welcome (back) to the Magix user to user forums.

Assuming you still have your old version of MEP installed, or at least have the serial/activation key, I think you might be able to upgrade to the latest version of MEP. Why not try at this page? You could, firstly, dwownload the Free Trail, make sure it runs successfully, and then decide to purchase.

However, and this is extremely important, the computer requirements for the latest version of MEP are far and away at a much higher level than was the case for your old version. Do check this page very carefully to ensure your computer meets the requirements at the minimum. Quite a number of users who have upgraded to this version from earlier ones (albeit much newer than your current one) have experienced quite a number of problems because of the technical demands of the new Infusion 2 engine.

Thank you Jeff, I'm looking into it.

Here's what I'm looking to do;

Can the MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2021 program Stitch 360 Dual-Spherical to Equirectangular?

I'm just looking for an application that can stitch my JOLT 360 images, I'm hoping that MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2021 can do this for me.

The native format is dual-spherical, not equirectangular. The app would need to convert mp4/h.265 dual-spherical to equirectangular, it would be great if the ability to convert from dual-spherical to equirectangular was available by using a plug-in so I could do Batch conversions. I have a bunch of them.

Fyi, Like most 360 cameras on the market today the software for this camera has been discontinued even though you can still purchase the camera, which really sucks.

Other than that I would not have looked at this product after owning the previous versions of Magix's software, their "support" tech or other wise, well frankly... Sucks. it's Non-existent and in the past their registration process was lousy, they don't even post an email address so you can ask questions on their "Online technical support:" web page (even if you do log in).

But I found a youtube video that said that what I'm looking for might be possible using this software so here I am again. forced into it you might say.

@Diverjon

Thanks for the additional information.

Unfortunately, I have no idea whether MEP can do what you want regarding those 360 images, sorry. Again, I can only suggest you look into installing the trial version and test it out, though you do need to be aware that all Magix trial versions are deliberately limited in some way when compared to the purchased version.

Whether there is another user who can directly answer your question, we will have to wait and see.

On the question of the technical support system, it is not the easiest to navigate but, in my experience, the actual support offered is very good.

I may have to take back what I said. At least there is a video on 360 editing on the VPX page here.

I found that while looking to substantiate my earlier statement saying I didn't think stitching was possible. If you are not stitching two separate files together it may be possible.

Scroll down to the 360 editing video. At least it would seem it is possible in VPX. There is no similar tutorial video for Movie Edit Pro that I can find but it may be worth looking to see if the options are there in the dialogue boxes. Possibly that can't be done without an appropriate file but will have a look.

[Edit] Well at least the same tools shown in the VPX video exist and work in the same way within Movie Edit Pro.

I don't have any of the appropriate files to try out though to test.

CubeAce,

Well here's your chance to do a test. Just a short clip. Let me know what you find although the free/test version of Movie Edit Pro appears to be different than the full version.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1H5tyZA208nDqIzrTiIkr2nI-PV5g4b6I/view?usp=sharing

I do realize that you are using VPX video and not MEP but VPX is way out of my price range. So have fun with the test anyway.

CubeAce wrote on 1/15/2021, 7:40 PM

Hi.

An MVP file on it's own is no use. It is just an instruction set with no video content to support it.

In this instance VPX and MEP have the same tool set for 360 video as far as I can see.

VPX I got through Humble Bundle for £20. It is not the latest version but the one before. That was not what I was going to test the file with.

Hi

As @CubeAce has said the project file is of no use without the media.

We need a short (10 - 20 sec) video clip from the camera in both its original format, I assume it is recorded as 2 separate video files/streams, and after the app has done it thing to the clips - combines the 2 streams into one video file?

@Diverjon @johnebaker @emmrecs

Hi John.

It's the stitching app that he is missing. This is why I thought it wouldn't work originally and I'm sure a while back it said on either the VPX info page or the MEP info page that it would need such an app to be used first.

However, I can no longer find such a reference in either of the applications information pages and the video I pointed to on the Magix website has no reference to the files being used. Again it could be Magix burying unwanted negative information to somewhere obscure.

Is not the video used in this tutorial

dual-spherical as the native video from the Jolt camera?

It looks like it is to me.

. . . . It's the stitching app that he is missing . . . .

Stitching is built in to MEP/VPX

Hi,

I do like the easy ones.

You have downloaded the trial of the basic version - there are no 360 effect in this version. Uninstall this and download the Plus or Premium trial version.

See the Comparison Table.

Note that the Plus version is currently on sale for less than the basic version. The Premium version is not on sale. I would wait for the Premium version to go on sale except that you want the Upgrade, I presume, then go for the Upgrade to Premium to see if you qualify. The difference in the upgrade price between Plus and Premium is minimal.

But that’s still a MVP project file, not a video.

EDIT: Posted before seeing Ray’s reply two minutes earlier.
An even better approach, providing you have the facility in the trial version, is to use File > Backup copy > Copy project and media into a folder, zip it up and upload that. Users then get the opportunity to look at both your file and your project.

This folder has 2 files in it. the one that I cut in Movie Edit Pro and a 38 second raw footage that I shot on vacation. The original file for the 1st file is 5 minutes long so I found one that is around 30 seconds. hope that works!

sorry I just had a brain fart earlier, our son was here and I just didn't read the post very well.

Terrypin, Thank you. Good idea but since the program would not do what i need it to to i've already deleted it. perhaps a bad idea but it's too late now. I only made a project to look through the menus and see if I could work with 360 video. Other than that I didn't create or do anything. I do use Cyberlink Powerdirector 17 for putting together our vacation videos and I've been concerned that installing all these other video apps might just screw one of my programs up so if they don't do what I need them to do I don't keep them around long.

Good Idea though.

Hi. I've just uploaded the file of my quick experiment but it seems to have worked OK. I'm not used to editing this type of footage and I may have got the export settings s bit wrong resolution wise after looking at the file's data so it may not seem that sharp but the bit rate and resolution didn't seem that high quality to me so maybe it's that.

I've put the video up as unlisted on YouTube so the only way to see it is via the link here.

I hope this is all you needed to know.

The MVP that came with this file does not work as it says sections are missing and can't be loaded so I just did the whole thing at my end.

Hi John.

It was the only mode I could find that allowed me to pull the picture around.

I didn't / don't have a lot of time. I have a lot on at the moment. I did notice the effect at the stitch point. You seem to have less of the effect than I did. Odd resolution of the original file as well. I did not take that into account. I will try again when I can. (possibly not for a while as I have a lot on and only here for a break as my mind is currently mush dealing with various jobs I have to complete in the next day or two). I have not tried to upload the resulting exported file to YouTube to see how it behaves. The original file itself is not as high as resolution or bit rate as I would have expected it to be.

The 360° view is the one to use - you can see the 3D globe top left of the Preview monitor.

. . . . You seem to have less of the effect than I did . . . .

The Samsung Gear preset is close, however I had to adjust the opening angle.

@Diverjon

Hi

Does the camera come with software that is supposed to be used to remove the edge distortion, ie crop the video preserving the central image parts of the dual spherical images, prior to using it in a video editor?
