Getting Started with Mantra VR
“Like Skybox, Mettle Mantra VR is essential for 360 degree video post production. Mobius Zoom allows for simulated camera zooms and movements which add production value to static shots. The creative applications of Mantra range from practical to psychedelic, and they empower storytellers to enhance 360 degree videos in creative ways that were not possible until now.” Daniel Bury, Chasing the World VR

“I love the Mantra VR plugin. The effects are a godsend. I love the ease of working with them in [Adobe] Premiere. It was so incredibly straightforward and easy.” – Chris Holmes.

“Mantra VR is an incredible new tool from Mettle which unlocks a world of possibilities for manipulating 360˚ video. The first time I used it, I was in awe of what it allowed me to do. There are so many parameters to play with and it’s genuinely fun to experiment with each new effect — so much so, that it’s easy to get sucked down the rabbit hole. It opens up new ways to create unique transitions and video effects within a spherical environment. Suddenly, 360˚ footage becomes a fluid, almost liquid-like substance, that you can pull, shape and mould, like an alchemist, to create surreal worlds, dreamscapes and alternate realities.”
