    I keep both VeeR and V360 on my phone. My Samsung Gear 360 doesn’t do 4K, but they do what they call “Near 4K”. I’m waiting for VeeR to Export in higher resolutions. I can’t imagine that my Galaxy S8 isn’t powerful enough nor has insufficient memory.

    I also really need to get rid of the watermark.

    Please help me keep ONE 360 video editor on my phone. 🙂

    Nice. Thanks. Please add to your list a new desktop option – 360 VR Video Editor from Molanis VR. I like their 360 3D, the little planet, and overcapture features.

    Isn’t Insta360 Studio worth a mention?
    What are its disadvantages?

    • steve says:

      insta360 studio doesnt work with their latest product (one x) and their new software is in beta with NO editing capabilities – which is why I am here looking for alternatives……

    CutStory is a video editing app for Instagram stories. It makes it easy to chop a longer video up into the required length for Instagram Stories (15 seconds maximum per clip). This way, you can repurpose longer videos—from your brand’s YouTube library, for example—and create more robust content without having to continually stop and start the camera.
