Yes, but with a few limitations.
True 4K refers to a resolution of 3840x2160. We recommend using 4096x2048 instead.
Tripods, Monopods or Drones often leave ghost marks at the bottom of your 360 footage.
Removing tripods can often be tedious, and the simplest way is probably just to cover it up!
Use your logo, or any other image and add it at the bottom in the editor to make your problem disappear. This saves additional work, and is a great way to push in some branding.
However, if you really want to clean up the tripod from your footage completely, here's how you could do that.
Here is a quick tutorial on how to remove the tripod using Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Pro or After Effects:

Mettle Sky Box is now a part of the Adobe Suite (>Adobe CC 2018). You can use the same features from the tutorial using the now inbuilt features of After Effects, like this:
Use the "Immersive Video>VR Converter" effect in place of "Mettle Skybox Converter"
Use "Window>VR Comp Editor" instead of "Skybox Composer"

Footage from your GoPro Fusion camera can be stitched and color corrected using GoPro Fusion Studio.
Perform simple color corrections, camera rotation fixes and clip videos all from this software to import into the GMetri editor.
Here's a tutorial on the GoPro Fusion Studio:

We can set up the camera view at the beginning of each scene, by accessing the scene properties. You can do this by selecting the scene in the Structure tab and then open up the Properties tab. A scene has the following properties:
- Initial Yaw - This determines the initial yaw (horizontal angle) the camera looks when the scene starts
- Reset Rotation - Setting this true ensures the camera always follows the "Initial Yaw" setting when entering a new scene, ignoring the direction it was loking at in the previous scene.
For example, if you want the scene to start every time looking 70° to the right, set Initial Yaw to 70° (or -70° for turning left) and switch Reset Rotation "on".
The GMetri platform does not downgrade any images uploaded in any way. If there is any quality variance, it may be due to the camera settings or the export/compression settings. Here are a few things you can try to make sure you get the best quality out of your camera: First, try to zoom out using the editor's zooming feature. If that didn't work,
- Ensure your Camera Firmware is up to date
- Your Fusion Studio app also needs to be updated
- Clean the camera lens before taking pictures to avoid smudges
- While exporting from Fusion Studio, you can also adjust the colour settings to make the image look better
- If you are compressing your images, there will be a drop in quality. Find the best compression to quality ratio that works for you by trying them out for yourself. Optimize image file size.
