If a VR camera is mounted to a rover, cable system or drone for a moving dolly shot, or experiences any instability during shooting, stabilization of the original footage is crucial for delivering a comfortable viewing experience in VR. When shooting with a moving camera, the use of specialized immersive media camera stabilizers can help reduce unwanted tilt and sway, but stabilizing in post will likely be required.
Mistika VR provides two methods for stabilization which are both straightforward to implement. Mistika VR can calculate stabilization by analyzing the footage’s horizon and vertical lines. The second method imports gyro metadata from Insta360 Pro 2 and Titan, KanDao Obsidian, and Teche360 cameras.
