Add specialized data management and creative VR functions to your toolbox. Implement cloud-based review: Publish 360 to SCRATCH Web and review with your smart phone and headset of choice. Deliver 360 output, including all meta data for use on other platforms like YouTube 360 or Facebook.

What's New

Playback and Review from the Desktop

Stereo or mono. Single or split view. Single or dual monitor. SDI out to a reference display or projector. Flat view or spherical projection. Output directly to the Oculus or HTC Vive and have all player controls available from within the headset... SCRATCH VR allows you to playback, review and work on 360 media from any angle possible.



Cloud-based Review

With SCRATCH Web you share, review, and collaborate 360 media in a secure way through your own Web channel. Post a single shot or a hundred shots at once. Create separate channels for projects or clients. Invite others for review just by entering their email address. Review from your desktop, tablet or smart phone with your favorite headset.

Manage 360 Media Metadata

Manage 360 specific meta data per shot, your full timeline including versions, as well as on all your output and deliverables. This ensures proper interpretation and playback in SCRATCH VR and on various 360 publishing platforms such as YouTube 360 or Facebook.




Re-center a 360 shot to ensure the object of interest is maintained from shot to shot in your timeline. Stabilize your equirectangular shot or animate a new motion path to guide a viewer through a 360 scene.



Grade & Composite

Apply blur, clarity or other effects without creating a seam in your 360 projection. Add grading layers that are automatically repeated on the right or left side to the equirectangular image. Composite 2D elements into your 360 scene using the equirectangular-2D effects node.



Finish & Render

Output to any format or framerate and include all the necessary meta data for 360 publishing, such as YouTube 360. Output equirectangular, cubic or a 2D carve out from your 360 projection by animating the desired paths through the 360 scenes, setting the Field of View and rendering your 2D version.
