I have a gear360 camera from long ago. I also have Gear ActionDirector (OEM 2.0.2321.0).

Since Samsung has stopped supporting this camera (and its software) I am using a ported android app to take photos/videos: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/mod-port-samsung-gear-360-manager-for-all-devices-updated-21-jan-21-v1-4-00-4-fw.3400383/. I can take photos and videos, but they are simply the raw images w/ no processing (the new software doesn't seem to have that ability built in). The photos are dual fish-eye photos.

When I try to import an image, I get the message: "Image stitching unsuccessful". Same for a video. Samples available if asked.

Anybody know why?

TIA

Hi,
I've moved the topic to the Mobile Apps forum.

Maybe some members will have some experience, but I suspect the "3rd party" app might be significant. I'm not sure how many members will have direct experience to help out but......?

If not, you can always bounce the query off Customer Support and provide all the info they require.

Cheers

It's most likely because the images are raw.

Mobile barely does well with a timeline that is 1080p and always wants to downscale it before you even start. It can now support up to a max of 4k resolution, but expect dome severe blips as you move across the timeline no matter how slow you go on a clip sped down to ⅛ time.

Mine does not allow me to import any pictures or video above 4k resolution which is unfortunate because I have 108MP / 8k on my phone. Your raw may be too large and you may have to downscale it before you put it on your mobile to put into PD.
