How To Edit 360 Videos

360-degree videos are riding at the forefront of a new wave of filmmaking technology. Virtual Reality headsets are easily accessible, and social media platforms like Facebook have no problem supporting 360 videos. However, editing a 360 video is a different challenge altogether. It’s not as straightforward as editing a regular, linear film. But Pinnacle Studio comes equipped with everything you need to turn your 360 footage into a complete experience.
