Ricoh has unveiled a new THETA+ Video app for Android which allows you to edit video captured with Ricoh’s THETA 360° camera.
The new Android version of the app is free to download from Google Play and is compatible with Android versions 4.4 to 6.0.
The THETA+ Video to edit and process 360° video captured with the RICOH THETA S and RICOH THETA m15 cameras, as well as time lapse videos created with the current app, THETA+.
Editing tools include trimming, switching the view, changing colour tone and inserting background music.
Videos can be cropped to the preferred angle with the THETA+ Video app, then shared on social media channels such as Instagram and Facebook. What’s more, videos posted on Facebook and YouTube can be rotated when viewed.
Other Features of (THETA+ Video for Android) (and THETA+ Video for iPhone, which is already available) include 10 kinds of filters to change the colour tone of your videos and a selection of four viewing formats (Mirror ball, Little planet, Equirectangular, and Rectilinear). With the “Little planet” format, the video is reproduced in the form of small spheres floating in space.
Background music is also included with the Ricoh app. Users can select one of eight original tracks that are included with THETA+ Video, or a track of their own, and use it as background music for a video. The original sound source in the video can also be switched to silent.
