GoPro Fusion Studio App FAQ

What is OverCapture? How do I create an OverCapture video?
  • OverCapture lets you frame and punch out the perfect shot from your VR footage to create amazing traditional videos.
  • You can create OverCapture videos three ways:
    • Utilizing the bundled desktop software, the GoPro Fusion Studio App, to reframe and stitch your footage using the OverCapture option. From there, you can export your “punched-out” clips for editing.
    • Using the GoPro Fusion Studio App to stitch your spherical footage, then importing it into Adobe Premiere/ or After Effects where you can use GoPro VR Reframe plugins to create OverCapture edits.
    • You can create amazing OverCapture videos right on your phone with the GoPro App available for iOS and Android.
How does Fusion stitch the videos together?
  • Fusion’s two lenses are offset and have an overlap of what they shoot. This allows the GoPro Fusion Studio App or the GoPro app to analyze the content to create the best stitch possible. Both the GoPro Fusion Studio App(Mac/Windows) and the GoPro App (iOS/Android) are free and are available on GoPro.com
Does Fusion leverage Kolor’s technology built into AVP? 
  • Yes, Fusion was built in collaboration with Kolor team. Many of the underlying frameworks of AVP have been distilled into the GoPro Fusion Studio App.
What software does Fusion come bundled with?
  • Fusion comes with the following:
    • The GoPro Fusion Studio App – for Mac/Windows – To stitch and stabilize your Fusion content as well as apply color. The GoPro Fusion Studio App can also trim your Fusion content to be able to share on specific social platforms, in either spherical or “punched-out” 2-D content via OverCapture.

What is the difference between “Flat” and “GoPro” in the color profiles of the GoPro Fusion Studio App?
  • The Flat mode compensates automatically for white balance and preserves as much linear information in the image, so without color saturation and contrast/details enhancement.
