Garmin Virb 360 firmware update adds raw video stitching, HyperFrame Director mode

Garmin VIRB 360 boasts 5.7K video, 4 mics

Garmin has launched an update to its Virb 360 camera that adds raw video stitching and the ability to re-frame traditional video from your 360 footage.

With the update, Garmin has enabled its VIRB Edit software to stitch raw footage and stabilise content captured at 5.7K, eliminating the need for third-party software.

What’s more, Garmin has added a range of new features such as long exposures and new burst mode options to the Virb.

Interestingly, Garmin has added a new feature called HyperFrame Director which allows users to film 360 video and then select a fixed-view perspective from that footage that they can save as a new traditional video.

We saw this feature first released with the Insta360 ONE, and just this week GoPro debuted the same functionality in the Fusion and its OverCapture function.

The Garmin Virb 360’s ability to re-frame video after filming allows users to share their videos beyond VR.

The Garmin Virb 360 price tag is price $800 / £650.
