Dual-fisheye viewer lets you view 360° spherical pictures and videos shot in a non-stitched dual-fisheye format used by spherical cameras like the Gear 360.
Generally you only want to get this app if you bought a Gear 360 camera and don't have a supported smartphone or a PC.
The app requires Metal support. Make sure your mac supports it: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT205073
Esc key closes open panorama.
Exported photos are equirectangular panoramas that contain tags for various image sharing sites to detect that this is a 360° spherical image.
Seamless stitching with parallax correction coming later. For now you may want to try to adjust interpreted field of view of the image halves by using the "fov" slider.
Video playback may require a fast CPU. 4 core Intel i7 like the one in 15" MacBookPro or faster is recommended.
Added options for changing video size, bitrate and frame rate for time-lapses

Almost there, but not ready yet
The biggest issue I found was that when loading an image captured by my Gear 360 camera (2017 version) this software didn't quite figure things out on its own. When I rotate the image I get wild artifacts on the screen, lots of white lines, random object shapes (like a big white triangle). I have a 2015 MacBook Pro so it supports Metal as the author requires. Other than that, the UI needs some additional polish. I can see the tool having potential though. Here's what I'd like to see, and if they were provided I would have paid even more for the software:
1. A queue. Let me select a directory of images and/or videos and the software should automatically stitch them together, with an optional user-specified output directory.
2. Better UI polish. This has the basics covered, but there should be more right-click options when selecting a file. Like "stitch now...", etc.
3. A quick tutorial. If nothing else, a simple UI overlay on the main screen that points out the features, and what to do.
My 3-star rating doesn't mean the software is necessarily bad, especially since the price is reasonable. But if this was really made for the Gear 360, I don't see how the developer could have missed some of the random artifacts displaying on the screen when viewing images out-of-the-box with the Gear 360 files. Maybe I'm missing something. I also looked at the support page and it did not provide any fixes.
This app is amazing. It does everything you would expect it to, and for a very affordable price. Most stiching apps cost upwards of 200 dollars, and this is app is able to streamline the process, and make it extremely accessible. I cannot recommend it enough. Espeiclaly useful if you have a Samsung 360 camera and do not have a Samsung phone or Windows computer.
Great Easy Fast.
Minimal tools needed and they are all there for editing. I got the Samsung gear 360 and I use this on my Mac. It works perfect as a Mac user and a Iphone user.
