Download sample footage

Have a play with Insta360 ONE X raw footage straight out of the camera on Insta360 Studio 2019 or the Insta360 ONE X App (Download from Play Store or Apple Store). There are 2 video files (INSV files) per one 5.7K 360 video. One file is for the front lens and the other is for the back lens. You must download both INSV files to edit a 5.7K 360 video. Insta360 software will automatically stitch the front and back lens footage together into a single 5.7K 360 video.

How to edit 5.7K 360 video on Insta360 Studio 2019

  1. Download straight out of the camera 5.7K INSV 360 video Footage 1, Footage 2, and Footage 3 shot in London, manual exposure, log mode ON.
  2. Download and install Insta360 Studio 2019.
  3. Drag and drop all the footage you just downloaded into Insta360 Studio 2019. Double click on a footage and click FreeCapture to begin editing.

Here is a video to help you edit RAW Insta360 ONE X 5.7K INSV 360 video files in Insta360 Studio 2019.

How to edit RAW DNG photos in Insta360 Studio 2019

Workflow

The best way to edit Insta360 ONE X footage is using Premiere Pro and the GoPro VR Reframe Plugin. This combination gives you the most flexibility to create high quality FreeCapture videos. The Insta360 plugin for Premiere Pro gives you a speedy no stitch workflow. You can import your footage straight from your ONE X into Premiere Pro for editing. See the video below for a detailed walkthrough on how to make FreeCapture videos using Premiere Pro.

With Premiere Pro you can make many different types of creative videos including, but not limited to, hyperlapse, timeshift, timelapse, 360 video virtual tour, tiny planet video, and more.

For hobbyists and enthusiasts, Premiere Pro is a costly monthly subscription. A much cheaper alternative is PowerDirector 17. This video editor supports 360 video editing and making FreeCapture videos. You can make hyperlapse and timeshift videos using PowerDirector 17 but there is no option to enable motion blur, like on the Insta360 ONE X app. Check out the video below to see how you can make FreeCapture videos using PowerDirector 17.

How to edit Insta360 ONE X 4K or 5.7K 360 MP4 footage in PowerDirector 17

  1. Download Insta360 ONE X 4K stitched MP4 sample footage OR Insta360 ONE X 5.7K stitched MP4 sample footage. I have already converted the Insta360 INSV files into MP4 files using Insta360 Studio 2019 to save you time.
  2. Import the Insta360 4K or 5.7K 360 MP4 files into PowerDirector 17.

Here is a video to help you edit Insta360 ONE X footage in PowerDirector 17.
