How do u colour grade 360VR, do u mind showing how u can break it down into pieces for grading. And how do u export it.

You can mask and color grade 360 VR as you would any footage. You can do this in Fusion or in the Color tab. To do this in Fusion, it's easiest to view the footage in the LatLong format, as shown in Lesson 07.

For exportation, you can render it through a Saver in Fusion or render it out of the Deliver tab as you would any other footage. In general, 360VR is rendered out as LatLong, although you can use a Panomap tool to change the mapping before rendering.

Is there a way to watch this offline? I need to watch this while my in flight! 

Unfortunately, there is no way to download. Streaming only.

Thanks for a very clear first lesson!  Much clearer than the manual documentation.   One question:  I am working with footage shot on a beam splitter rig.  Timecode does not match left and right.  However a slate with a synch clap was used and both clips have audio.  What would the workflow be to synch these up as a stereo clip?  Resolve has many synch options for making Multicam clips like using audio waveform and markers instead of timecode, but the stereo synch does not offer these.   What do you suggest?   Thanks!!!!

The only thing I can think of is syncing the audio outside of Fusion or through a set-up project for re-rendering.

Thanks for responding so quickly!  That's kind of what I was thinking.   Synching the clips, trimming to same length and then export both with new, matching timecode, then re-import to Davince.   Just a lot of work!

Another question.  I also have footage shot with a 3D Gopro rig.  When I synch in Resolve,  the eyes are a few frames out of synch.  Is there any way to slip or adjust the temporal synch between the two eyes in a stereo clip?  Much appreciated....

Hi Lee,

I've been trying to follow along with your stereo fusion sessions.  I'm having trouble importing my own footage instead of the png image sequences you use.  I have stereo left and right video in apple pro res QT movies.  I created a timeline using my left eye footage.  Then open the fusion tab, so I have a Media In node and a Media Out node.   Then  I create a new loader, select my file, and click "open" but nothing happens.   I get a new loader, but it is still just called "loader1".  I then tried using the inspector for that loader to select my file by clicking "browse".   That opens the same finder window.   I select my same file and click "open".  Now the loader has the file name on it in white.   But when I try to view the contents of the loader by clicking the view dot below, the file name turns red and the viewer is blank.  Frustrating.  I assumed importing a QT file would be the same process as importing an image sequence but I can't get it to work.   Using Studio 17.1 on Mac OS.....  Thanks for your time!  John.

Theoretically, it should be the same exact process for any supported format. Sounds like it's having trouble reading your files. Can you test some other footage - other QuickTimes? I use a PC to run Resolve, so I'm not sure if there are any Mac issues.
