Ratings and Reviews
This software has a ton of potential, but unfortunately it lacks some basic features and the whole thing is extremely buggy. I own the VIRB 360 and one of they key features is its ability to shoot 5.7k RAW footage with its two cameras, which you can then stitch later into a 360 spherical video using Virb Edit. While 5.7k offers twice the resolution of a 4k video and has almost 3x the bitrate, the Virb Edit stitched 5.7k video looks worse than the in camera stiched 4k video. Details that were in the original raw files are lost entirely, its as if the footage was downsampled to a lower resolution and then upsampled to 5.7k again. I have come across numerous other bugs that I will not enumerate here, but suffice it to say that it is borderline unusable. It is unfortunate because the VIRB 360 is actually a great piece of hardware, but suffers from lack of supporting software. I would love to use the full potential of this camera one day. I have been waiting patiently for Garmin to resolve these issues since I purchased my camera back in Sept 2017. It would be extremely frustrating if they release a new camera prior to fixing their software, as its not the hardware thats the issue.
so far so good
I have Garmin VIRB camera that I use for aviation and so far this software works pretty well under Mac OS Sierra on Mid-2017 Macbook Pro 15”. I didn’t try it with High Sierra yet so I can’t comment if it works with High Sierra. Otherwise, I can view my flights with GPS statistics (G-Matrix) no problem. I actually like this software but I have been using it mostly for viewing video clips with the G-Matrix data displayed on. I’m very pleased about being able to see basic flight data (elevation, speed, distance, map) right on my clip so I can analyze my flight at home.
Crashes on Export
App is super buggy and crashes on exporting video, worthless!! I’ve tried on 3 different computers and can’t get this thing to work, macbook, windows 10 and windows 7. Overall crappy software from Garmin as I probably should’ve expected from previous experience with this company.
