The Insta360 Studio Experience Update: Easier Desktop Editing From Start to Finish

3 min read

Insta360 released today an extensive update to their desktop editing software, Insta360 Studio. The update introduces a brand new user interface, promising an easier and more intuitive editing workflow. 

Insta360 Studio Update

The update follows an extensive update to the Insta360 app last month, demonstrating Insta360’s continued commitment to improving the user experience of their cameras and software. 

The free update is available to download from Insta360’s website and is compatible with all Insta360 consumer action cameras, including Insta360 ONE R, ONE X2, GO 2 and ONE X. The update is available for Windows and Mac OS computers, and also boasts full compatibility with M1 Macs. 

Easier Importing 

From the start of the editing process, improvements are already noticeable for users. Now when users connect their Insta360 camera to their computer, Insta360 Studio will automatically recognize the camera and prompt users to select individual files or import all files saved on the SD card at once. No more wasted time locating files and importing them into the software. 

Once imported, the files will now appear in a sidebar on the left of the interface with three different preview options, including a new thumbnail preview option for a large view of each file’s content. Users can also filter the files by saved location and favorite files for easier access.

Easier Editing and Project Management 

Editing camera footage with Insta360 Studio is now easier too, especially reframing 360 footage with keyframes. Now when users click the timeline to add a keyframe, a new window will pop up showing options to adjust the pan angle, tilt angle, roll angle, FOV and distance. 

The video timeline has also been revamped, displaying a thumbnail preview when hovering over the timeline. Buttons for tracking targets (Deep Track), adjusting the video speed (TimeShift) and adding motion blur are now easier to find as well.

On the right sidebar, a new “Project Management” panel is available for editing and saving different versions of the same raw files simultaneously. Users can both clone an edited video or start a new project from the raw file.

Users can now undo operations by clicking the undo icon or pressing ⌘Z, as well as redo operations. 

Easier Exporting

Once users are done with their edit, exporting is now easier as well. Users can save their preferred export settings (e.g. resolution, bitrate and encoding format) as a preset for easier access in the future. 

Users can now also add exports to a queue, so they can wait to export until they’ve finished all of their edits, and then export together all at once. That means less wasted time in between edits and a smoother exporting experience all together. 

Available Now

Download the free Insta360 Studio update from Insta360’s website today to take advantage of the new features.

    This is great. Since many of us use iPad Pro can you make the same functions operate for the iPad Pro?

      We have an update coming very soon that allows for editing using the iPad.

    When will the desktop app contain ALL the features of the mobile app?

    1. Insta360 2022/09/15 at 9:28 am

      We’re working towards bringing our Studio and Insta360 app closer together. We can’t give an exact timeline for when all the features will be added to the studio, but we are working on adding app features to the studio.

      Hi Ismail, sorry we’re not sure what you mean by this? Let us know and we can try and help you out.

        Maybe I’m missing something but is there an autoedit function for the desktop much like the mobile app? Camera being used is an x3 and OS for the desktop is windows based

        1. Insta360 2023/02/22 at 11:08 am

          Hi Tim, it depends what you mean exactly by “autoedit function” but if you’re referring to the Shot Lab templates in the mobile app, then unfortunately those are not available when editing in Insta360 Studio.
