・The blur correction function used when converting videos has been improved. It achieves high precision correction using the camera position information*¹ detected with the Visual SLAM technology. Select [Tool] → [Video conversion], and then select the [Blur correction] check box before starting the conversion process.
*¹ Relative position information based on self-position estimation (this is not position information from a GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System))
* Videos shot with all RICOH THETA models are supported. Blur correction may not work depending on the shooting environment and conditions.
* Windows only
The Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime components (version 14.0 or later) are required for video conversion. If the Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime is not installed, the installer will be displayed automatically. Follow the on-screen instructions to install it.
* Note that video conversion is not possible unless the Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime is installed.

・It is now possible to convert shot videos to “Route” and “Outside-in” videos and play them back. (This function is in the Beta (β) version.)
“Route conversion (β)”
For a video shot while moving, you can display the route you moved, and play it like a hyperlapse video to the selected point.
“Outside-in conversion (β)”
For a video shot while walking around the subject, you can view the subject from various directions like a frame-by-frame video.
* Videos shot with all RICOH THETA models are supported (excluding videos shot with the file size “1280 × 720”). Videos may not be converted depending on the shooting environment and conditions.
