The Domemaster Fusion Macros plug-in has evolved into KartaVR 3 for Fusion.
KartaVR is on display now at the Blackmagic Design booth during NAB 2017 where Rony Soussan, the lead Fusion Product Specialist, is presenting the KartaVR toolset to attendees.
“Karta” is the Swedish word for map. With KartaVR you can easily stitch, composite, retouch, and remap any kind of panoramic video: from any projection to any projection. The KartaVR plug-in works inside of Blackmagic Design’s powerful node based Fusion Studio compositing software. It provides the essential tools for VR, panoramic 360° video stitching, and image editing workflows.
Exciting New Features in KartaVR 3
Stitch 360° Video in Fusion with a PTGui Project File
You can stitch 360° panoramic video directly in Fusion based upon a PTGui project file. This makes the process of building a 360° VR composite easy and fast. Stitching video in Fusion allows you to add visual effects, titles, logos, color correction, and paint out tripods directly in the Fusion compositing environment.
Oculus Rift Support in Fusion
There are now Oculus Rift DK1 and DK2 renderer3D nodes that allow you to interact with the Fusion 3D workspace, and display stereo VR images directly on an HMD in Fusion. This feature works on Windows, Linux, and macOS systems that support HDMI video output. The Oculus Rift head tracking module is not supported, but manual navigation controls in Fusion can be used to interactively adjust the camera’s point of view.
Adding title graphics and logos to VR content is now simpler than ever. You can place logos anywhere in the 360° view and easily animate their size and position.
