Davinci Resolve 360 degree Tutorials

Installing Karta VR

If you have no idea what reframing 360 degree videos is all about then I guess this post won’t be of any interest to you.

I use an Instaone 360 X2 360-degree camera and most of the time I leave the video in VR360 format, there are however times that I need to make “flat” video from the 360 degree video.

This means I have reframe the video so that you are seeing it from a fixed angle rather than being able to scroll about, this is a serious advantage with 360 degree video because it means I can reframe as often as I want to show the video from different camera angles. You probably still have no idea what I am talking about though but that’s OK, all will become clear when I start to upload the reframed videos.

The software that comes with the camera, Instaone studio is Ok ish for reframing but not as controllable as I need it to be, so I prefer to reframe in editing software. Well, I tried Premier Pro 2002 with the GoPro reframe plug in and it constantly crashed. So, my “fallback” software in Davinci Resolve.

For a free program Resolve is very powerful in many respects and reframing 360 footage is one of those that it excels in. I am in the middle of making a tutorial about reframing in Resolve but before we can start doing that, we need to install the plug in that allows us to do this, installing plug-ins in Resolve isn’t straightforward so this tutorial is about downloading and installing KARTAVR.

This video tutorial is about installing reactor 3 which allows you run KARTAVR which you need to do the reframing.
