What is new in Mistika VR 8.8.7

Recommended Posts

Hi all, As promised, Mistika VR 8.8.7  Release Notes are now available. As usual,  all the exciting new features, improvements and presets are free of charge for all existing Mistika VR Users as part of the SGO Loyalty Rewards Program. After the Official release, this functionality will also be available in the evaluation version.  

New features:

1. Keyframe animation: Long requested by the users, finally coming!

  • Every parameter of the stitching can be now animated.
  • To enable animation, select a parameter and use the “add keyframe” from its contextual menu. Any further modifications to this parameter at different times will automatically add new keyframes.
  • The output camera heading and edge point positions can be animated dragging over the image, once they were converted to animated.
  • For the selected parameter, keyframe marks will be shown in the timeline bar.
  • The keyframes in the timeline bar can be moved in time using ctrl+drag on them.
  • Selecting the keyframe marks in the bar will snap the time position precisely to that of the keyframe.
  • There are now “next key” / “prev key” buttons in the toolbar.

2. Insta360 Pro calibration tool now included. The “use Insta360 Pro calibration” is not simply a calibration import, like in the previous release. This tool actually calls the calibration tool provided by Insta360, for the frame you are viewing in the moment of using it. This allows an easy selection of a good calibration frame, as the calibration results can be seen immediately applied in MistikaVR.

3. Insta360 One now supported:

  • New Flip Horizontal parameter added, necessary to support Insta360 One camera.
  • New preset for Insta360 One added.
  • KanDao QooCam presets added, for both VR3D180 and VR360 mode.


4. Vertical Alignment tool: The Experimental tool allowing precise human-assisted alignment especially for VR180 shots, where there are not yet good automatic tools available.



Much faster loading of the timelines: Storyboard icons are now saved with the timeline, and restored at the load, avoiding a costly access and recalculation of all the shots in the timeline just to recreate the storyboard.

Reorder Kandao utility now supports Obsidian Go camera.
