How To Make An Inverted Rolling Planet With The Insta360 One X:

  5. Set White Balance manually to what looks best for your scene. Tip: Set it to Auto White Balance and then find a Manual White Balance option which looks closest to Auto. Set Log mode On for more manual control over your colour grading or set it to Off for easier and quicker colour grading. I would recommend Log mode Off. The colours are richer. All your video settings are ready.
