Share Article

Dashwood 360VR Toolbox™ offers real-time 360 degree VR headset monitoring while editing, and a full-featured plugin suite for Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Final Cut Pro.

Dashwood Cinema Solutions, developer of award-winning Mac® OS X apps and post-production plugins, is pleased to announce the downloadable public beta of its brand new product, 360VR Toolbox.

First previewed at NAB 2015 in April, 360VR Toolbox literally turned heads with its ability to preview 360 degree spherical footage in the Oculus® Rift while playing from an edited sequence in Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro or Adobe After Effects. The latest patent-pending features have now been revealed in the public beta of 360VR Toolbox. These include full stereoscopic 3D support, reorientation of equirectangular “LatLong” panoramic footage, output of “pan and scan” mono or stereoscopic video, placement of 2D elements inside spherical footage, support for equirectangular, stereographic or cubic projections, and “seamless” 360 degree filters like blur, sharpen, glow and noise reduction.

“We are very excited to announce the downloadable public beta of 360VR Toolbox,” said Tim Dashwood, founder of Dashwood Cinema Solutions. “We have honed the feature set through feedback from our stellar beta test group of VR professionals. I am very proud to say that 360VR Toolbox is already in the post-pipeline of numerous 360 degree content producers, including industry leaders JauntVR and Immersive Media.”

Dashwood will be displaying 360VR Toolbox during IBC in Amsterdam at FCP EXPO on September 12 and 13 (Spaces Zuidas) and the CPUG Supermeet on the evening of September 13th (Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky).

Tim Dashwood will be available for media interviews at both events. For media review inquiries, please contact Erin Shields at erin(at)dashwood360(dot)com.
