Can Camtasia Studio 9 edit 360 videos?

  • Updated 1 month ago
I'm considering buying some hardware to create 360 video. I don't want to get it only to find out it has some really special requirements for the 360 video to be processed. 

In the end I'd like to be able to add callouts and possibly other video files into the end product. So there would be a 360 degree video scene, then a few text overlaid items to help the user look at certain things I want them to see, as well as a video playing over the top of the scene that would slightly obstruct the view. 

Can Camtasia 9 do this? Or do I need special software for 360 video?

I would also like to know the answer to this!  I'm getting a Samsung Gear 360 and I would like to add floating overlays and whatnot!   Any advice/info on this, TechSmith Admins???? :)

Camtasia doesn't have the ability to edit  360 degree videos.

If you need software and Samsung doesn't offer it with the camera.Google 360 video editing programs.

This is certainly something that TechSmith should be working on for v.10.0!  This is my formal request for the ability for Camtasia to support the editing of 360 video!  :)

The Samsung 360 camera is a perfect platform for recording teacher / student interactions.  Particularly music.  I purchased Camtasia specifically to create teaching video clips that would allow students to cover certain techniques without having to spend teaching time interacting one on one for those that need the help.  Please Please fix this compatibility problem in your next version.  After all it is an MP4 that is generated on the Samsung 360 -- how hard can it be to make this compatible???

Hello. Hi. I'm a music teacher in Spain and I want to start doing some tests with 360 degrees pictures and videos. I would appreciate it if you could tell me what application you want to give the 360-degree videos you record for your music students. Thank you and greetings.

Full 360 isn't really that helpful but the panoramic view is (which is 360 as well but not a "globe".   In a nut shell, a video that allows you to see the instructor, charts, video, instruments, students all in real time is where the value is.  Unlike a lecture recorded on tape, you can scroll around as the lesson is being delivered looking at the entire process from differing perspectives.  As you probably know, it can be very challenging to view both sides of an instrument when being played and still keep the instructor in the viewer's vision.  I have a voice coach that has all kinds of antics when she's instructing students.  Frankly the body language is worth as much as the dialog.  Just a few thoughts.

Techsmith is an excellent video editing software but is always behind when it comes to elearning and interactive capabilities.
