In this video you will see a daytime scene taken with the Qoocam 8K at 8K video resolution (7680 x 3840), 30fps. The video looks clean and sharp. However, the colours look quite dull. GoPro’s colour can make dull scenes look more vibrant. Unfortunately this is not the case for the Qoocam 8K. Download Qoocam 8K sample footage from Kandao’s website.

In this video you will see a night time scene taken with the Qoocam 8K at 8K video resolution (7680 x 3840), 30fps. The video looks very clean and sharp. The shadow and highlights are not too dark or too bright. There are no visible stitch lines as people walk past the Qoocam 8K. So overall, the video quality looks extremely promising. Download Qoocam 8K sample footage from Kandao’s website.

In this video you will see a night time scene reframed to 1080P from 8K 360 video. The low light performance looks great from this footage. The colour and clarity shines through. The real question is now “What is the workflow like to turn 8K 360 video into OverCapture video?”

When you record 360 video, GoPro MAX will save 360 video in HEVC (.360) format. You cannot import .360 files into a video editor. They must be converted first.

 

The .360 files can be converted using GoPro MAX Exporter Desktop Software For Windows. This software will convert the .360 files into ProRes 5.6K .mov files or H264/HEVC 4K .mp4 files. For Mac, please use GoPro Player to convert the .360 files into .mov or .mp4. The .mov or .mp4 files can then be imported into Premiere Pro. To get the full 5.6K video resolution, you must export to ProRes. This results in HUGE .mov video file sizes.
