If you want to upload 360˚ videos to Warp Studio, you must first encode, transcode or render your video files yourself. We will help you on your way!

Warp Studio supports Monoscopic and Stereoscopic 360˚ videos with Stereo audio. Make sure you upload all your videos in an equirectangular format.

Our recommendations for Monoscopic 360˚ video:

Resolution: At least 3840 x 1920 pixels, preferred 5120 x 2560 pixels
Frame rate: At least 25 FPS, preferred 30 FPS
Container: .mp4
Codec: h.264 (AVC) or h.265 (HEVC)
Bitrate: Variable Bit Rate (VBR) of at least 150 Mbps
Audio: Codec: AAC, Stereo, Samplerate 48, Bitrate 320

Our recommendations for Stereoscopic 360˚ video:

Resolution: At least 3840 x 3840 pixels, preferred 5120 x 5120 pixels (Top/Bottom format)
Frame rate: At least 25 FPS, preferred 30 FPS
Container: .mp4
Codec: h.264 or h.265
Bit rate: Variable Bit Rate (VBR) of at least 150 Mbps
Audio: Codec: AAC, Stereo, Samplerate 48, Bitrate 320

Note: you cannot transcode your videos with a higher resolution or frame rate than you recorded with the camera.

You can upload higher resolution videos to Warp Studio. Warp Studio will, however, downscale this to max 5120 x 2560 pixels or 5120 x 5120 pixels. Learn more on the Warp Studio transcoding process here. When you record your videos in 8k, you can save time rendering, uploading and transcoding when using our recommendations as stated above.

We accept also other specs:

Dimensions: No limit, aspect ratio must be 2x1 for monoscopic or 2x2 for stereoscopic
Frame rate: No limit
Container: .mp4
Codec: h.264, h.265
Bitrate: No limit

Do you like to use a different container or codec? Please let us know via the chat at the bottom right of this page or via our contactpage.

Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro has some great presets ready to use. Go to the export settings and select "Format: H.264" and "Preset: Match Source - Adaptive High Bitrate". Check in the Video tab what the resolution is. When it is higher than our recommendations, you can adjust it. If it is lower, you do not have to do anything. It should match your source video automatically. And check in the "Video" tab below "VR Video" if "Video Is VR" is marked and if the "Frame Layout" matches your source video. And that is it. You can start rendering!

Can't export to .mp4?

If you cannot export your video files to .mp4 and you have no other software to do the transcoding, we recommend downloading the free open-source video transcoder Handbrake. Click here for more information.
