The 360° video workflow can be time consuming and very limiting.
Adobe has introduced recently just a very basic set of filters (blur, sharpen, etc.) based on the great former SkyBox-Filters by Mettle. But even the dozen of included regular After Effects filters are not optimized by design for “full canvas”-use in 360°.
And then there are hundreds of great 3rd-party 2D-effects by companies like Red Giant, Boris FX and RE:Vision, which you probably already own and would like to use.
Using them usually results in ugly visible seams. No longer …
“anyFX360 is simple to use and works quite well on organic looking filters such as: glows, blurs, lighting and stylize effects. It is a useful tool for creators that want to use Adobe After Effects plug-ins that are not currently optimized for 360. anyFX360 gives 360 creators who have basic AE chops options to explore and use the hundreds of creative filters found in our Continuum and Sapphire plug-in packages”.
