Until recently I didnt care too much about the Superview effect.
I read it often in cheap cams – they try to imitate Gopros patented way of stretching 4:3 (full sensor) footage onto the popular 16:9 format (i.e. 1920×1080).
Why full sensor readout? You get the most wideangle shot.
Why wideangle shot in FPV? It makes you look fast and it goes well with freestyle!
So you can try to still find a (refurbished) Gopro Session 5. It’s the most popular cam in the right form factor (small, dice).
Usually that’s a bit expensive – and depending on where you life – hard to find / order online.
Of course there are many competitors to gopro – like Runcam (they’ve been sued by gopro in the past) or Foxeer.
Not to get sued again – Runcam just provides the “correct” resolution like 1920×1440@60 fps,
and you have to take care of proper stretching yourself.
For this task I tested a few methods and here you will find a tutorial for 2 ways.
●1: Gopro Studio
+ free and easy, good superview implementation (probbably the same as in their cams?)
– a few additional steps, recoding (CPU time), large intermediate files (10 times the orig footage)
●2: Magix Vegas 17 (just the video editor I use)
+ just apply a filter onto the orig footage, easy to setup, no recoding, integrates well in normal editing, fast!
– expensive (if you dont already have Vegas), not perfect quality (mesh warp isnt perfect)
●3: After Effects – non linear stretching
Didnt test this myself, I’m not into Adobe products, but most likely the same pro’s and cons like Vegas above!
●4: Nuke Foundry:
+ free software (for personal use), good quality
– big installation, registration, getting a free license, complicated workflow, not intuitive, recoding
Similar to GoproStudio – just not as accessible imho.
●5: (and ongoing as I find more ways):
VIRTUAL DUB filter “barrel distortion” combined with avisynth filter “warped resize”
