The footage is nothing new. Anthony Walsh and Matahi Drolliet ooze into flawless crystalline Tahiti over and over again via their Omni warped-to-spherical 360 camera. The kicker here, though, is in the new editing software. GoPro has released a user-friendly program called OverCapture, and the tweaks here are noticeable compared to the edit’s original release.
“OverCapture is more than just the ability to capture content from every angle, it also enhances what you can do with the content after you’ve already captured it. Users have the flexibility in post-production to utilize the entire spherical file to find the perfect shot from which to punch out a full 1080p, traditionally-framed image,”says GoPro. The tweaks are noticeable compared to the original release.
Moving forward, GoPro plans to use their new Fusion spherical single-lens camera to further push the 360 angles. No longer will surfers need multiple GoPro cameras molded together in bulk to perform “mini world”-like visions.
