  1. Hi there! You need no preset for the Titan. Import the clips, then import the pro.prj, all parameters should set correctly. Also, you can drag&drop it on top of the eight imported clips. If you have any other questions or technical issues, open a ticket on our Support Portal and our engineering team will be more than happy to help you. Cheers!
  2. Hi Luijt, Yes, you just have to go to the clip stack --> right-click and 'save clip' (this will save the settings of one clip). To apply the same settings for the other clips you have to make the same action but instead of clicking on 'save preset' you just click on 'load preset'. Here's a reference image: With regards to the Insta360 Pro preset, I've just checked and it is available. You just have to make Login and you'll be able to download it. Please, let me know if you have any other questions. Best,

  5. Hi Clay, Thanks for reaching out and your suggestions. You're correct, the functionalities in the VR stitch node aren't mapped to the element panels. Anyway, this would be a great feature to add to future developments. We usually make a feature request survey and users vote for their favorite ones to be implemented. We will consider your request for the next survey. Many thanks again. Cheers!

  25. Hi everybody! [NEW RELEASE - April 23, 2019] Mistika VR 8.8.10 is now officially released Here you'll find the release notes of this new version. As usual, all the exciting new features, improvements and new presets are available at no extra cost for all existing Mistika VR Users as a part of the SGO Loyalty Rewards Program. New Presets: Insta 360 One preset removed and replaced by separated presets according to their resolution. Insta360 One X presets list completed. Presets for Insta 360 EVO VR180_3D and VR360 added.

[OPEN BETA] Mistika VR 8.8.10 Open Beta is Now Available! Here you'll find the Release Notes of this new version. As usual, all the exciting new features, improvements and new presets are free of charge for all existing Mistika VR Users as a part of the SGO Loyalty Rewards Program. New Features: Official Apple ProRes support. The support for ProRes formats is highly improved, both in terms of speed and metadata, using the latest new Apple ProRes SDK. EXR DWA support on Mistika VR. EXR DWA. This is an image format developed by ILM and mainly used as an intermediate format for VFX workflows. Probably the most popular variant is DWA (created by DreamWorks Animation). It is an image sequence (one frame per file), which makes it ideal for many VFX workflows, and in fact, most VFX applications support this format. A difference to movie files it can be rendered in parallel (several render nodes working together to render the same clip) with render managers like Smedge, Deadline, or Mistika Ultima BatchManager. Also, it can be partially “patched” when needed (as a difference, “movie” files need to be rewritten completely). This permits an interesting workflow for Mistika VR users: You can render the first stitch for initial review (for example with Mistika Boutique or Mistika Review products) and then adjust and re-render only the parts containing fixes. To do that just put the edit marks in the area to fix and render with the same name, so Mistika will only overwrite the selected frames. (obviously, this technique only works as long as you do not need to move the horizon or other geometry settings anymore) Another advantage of the EXR format is that it supports 16bit per channel, which makes it ideal for HDR workflows and for high-end cameras in general. EXR DWA provides definable compression, with the default compression value (45) it is considered a “Lossless” format, even for high-end cameras. The EXR DWA format is CPU intensive, but as a difference to jpg, this format is fast to encode and to playback, being possible to playback in Mistika applications at 4K when having decent CPUs. Another EXR variant of common usage is EXR ZIP. This is made by compressing the original image to ZIP format internally ( the ZIP compression is not only lossless but also fully reversible). But It is much slower and less efficient in terms of file sizes when compared to DWA, so it is only recommended when explicitly required by a VFX department. Improvements: Importing the KanDao calibration no longer requires applying a preset first. Using the Insta360 calibration tool no longer requires applying a preset first. New Presets: Preset for Vuze Plus added. Preset for ZCam V1Pro added. Preset for Insta360 Pro2 preset added. Preset for Kandao at 1900x1500 resolution added. Fixes: 1565 Changing frame rate with Mistika VR running wasn’t changing the frame rate for the renders. 1588 PtGui was showing an error message when sending images from an unnamed timeline. 1659 Import Kandao calibration tool wasn’t working when merging sequences. 1774 The zCam V1 preset ought to be renamed to V1 Pro. 1968 When creating a project with a name that contained upper & lower case characters and exceeded a certain length, it had been recognized as not valid. 1978 The Relink window was not accessible when changing a project with offline media. 1991 Inject Spatial Media Metadata was not working properly with 'bitrate' codecs (VLC-proper issue). Metadata was present in a generated video but VLC didn’t use it. Our tests generated movies with PotPlayer (https://potplayer.daum.net/) which correctly interpreted the Stereo and 3D information. 2009 When drag & drop any kind of media from the Windows browser to Mistika VR, the media was moved to the Trash.
