dSphere

dSphere logo
Needs a proper icon...

A simple yet powerful reframing/overcapture tool.

Spherical media are great. You capture everything, and upload... well... everything? Or capture everything and worry about framing later. That's what dSphere is all about. Use any equirectangular media and quickly produce a reframed clip.
It won't replace Premiere (+plugins) anytime soon, but it will reframe your shots today!

Quick tour of the software

Easy media selection

Multiple user defined media directories are fused into one media grid. From there you can choose which video or photo you'll reframe.

Media settings

The video settings panel allow you to set a couple of "media wide" settings:
- Output aspect ratio (like 16:9 videos for Youtube or 1:1 for Instagram)
- Trim the video
- Adjust horizon
- Change video speed (and create a timelapse why not)

Keypoint & transition system

Choose one point of view per keypoint:
- Use the mouse click&drag to direct the view, and the mouse wheel to change the zoom level.
- Choose a transition that will apply to the frames leading to the current keypoints.

You can add as many keypoints as you want, and remove the one that proved to be poor directing choice.

Easy exports

Choose between many output formats (H.264 / H.265 / VP9 / CineForm / ProRes), sizes (but no, you won't be able to export in 4K when the source material are not even close to 4K for a whole sphere), and quality/speed settings.
