A Final Cut plugin that shows most of a 360° clip in a non-360° project by applying an extreme wide angle lens.

Part of Alex4D 360° Effects for Final Cut Pro 10.4: Essential VR video tools for 360° stories.

Tiny Planet 360° 4D is in the Flat category of Alex4D 360° Effects:

Here is what the Final Cut Pro viewer looks like when the Tiny Planet 360° 4D effect is applied to a 360° clip:

The Tiny Planet 360° 4D effect is designed to work with 360° spherical video clips in non-360° projects. For the effect to work correctly, the 360° clip must have its the Orientation disabled in the video inspector:


Planet Size: If Tilt/Pan/Roll are set to , controls the proportion of the centre of the clip (the ‘planet’) to the edges (the ‘sky’).

Tilt/Pan/Roll parameters set the orientation of the planet in the frame.

Mirror is a pop-up menu parameter that optionally repeats part of the source:

Inside replaces the centre part of the ‘planet’ with the ‘sky’:

Horizontal replaces the left part of the frame with the right part:

Outside replaces the outside part of the frame with the centre part of the ‘planet’:

Overall Scale: Defaults to half the size of the 360° clip the effect is applied to, because when a 4K clip is added to an HD timeline, the clip as a whole is not scaled down to fit the timeline.

Aspect Ratio controls the proportion of the width to the height of the effect result.

An Aspect Ratio of 1.0 works for square videos:

An Aspect Ratio of 0.5 works for vertical videos:
