I have run the installer, however the plug in is now showing up when I open Premiere and look for the desired effects in the effects menu.


This is due to an update at OS level where the OS moves the openCL dll around and as a result, you GPU and our software cannot locate it.
  1. Please download and install the latest build from the 'My Downloads & Licenses'  section of your user account. 
  2. Please make sure you have the latest GPU driver from your GPU vendors site. Including the openCL dll
  3. Hold down the shift key when you next launch Premiere Pro
That should do the trick.

Customer Showcase

360/VR Journey to the Arctic | Greenpeace

GreenPeace produced their first 360/VR experience that transports viewers to the pristine landscapes of the high North. The immersive quality of the video has been more successful than traditional video to deliver their message and get viewers to support their actions; that the Arctic must be protected from the looming threat of oil drilling and industrial fishing. Adobe software was used for 360/VR post-production along with Mettle 360/VR plugins SkyBox Studio and SkyBox 360/VR Tools.

"Fowl Seas" 360/VR Pirate Adventure for GoPro | Light Sail VR

GoPro approached Light Sail VR and asked if they were interested in creating a totally original 360/VR short film for GoPro's Facebook channel. Of course they were! There were only two requests: it had to have a moving camera in the middle of an action “fight” scene, and it needed to be shot on GoPro cameras. Mettle 360/VR plugins were part of the post-production workflow. SkyBox Studio and SkyBox 360/VR Tools were used in the production.


"Mama Said" by Lukas Graham - Cover by Mackenzie Sol 360°/VR | DreamWorksTV

Kids digital entertainment brand DreamWorksTVtook its first step into 360/VR in a music video that makes 360 filmmaking part of the story. Producer Matt Levy worked with Director Aton Sanz-Katz to created a 360 experience that gives a glimpse of a Hollywood set behind-the-scenes, with all the cast and crew visible.

Many thanks to Luke Westaway and Jonathan Garnham of C|NET, for this awesome 360 experience, and making-of video.


Bletchley Park 360 Making-Of


Reggie's Garage in VR

Light Sail VR produced a 360 experience for baseball legend Reggie Jackson that showcases his spectacular Classic Car collection, and the business he has developed around that lifelong passion. Narrated by Reggie, we get a truly immersive story about Reggie's Garage, that explains how he got started, shows the car collection, and lets the viewer go along for a car ride with the man himself. Shot in 360 with a 10-camera GoPro rig, all the post was done in After Effects with SkyBox Studio, and Premiere Pro with SkyBox 360/VR Tools.



INTERRUPTURE is a powerful and moving documentary VR Film, directed by Jason Drakeford and Thomas Nybo. The true story is told from the first-person perspective of an 11-year old girl, as she makes a hazardous journey from Syria to Europe. It's made entirely from 2D assets brought into 360/VR with SkyBox Studio in Adobe After Effects, where all 2D images, text were composited into 360 sequences and exported. Those 360 clips were edited in Premiere Pro using SkyBox 360/VR Tools.


Courvoisier Canada Toast of Paris

Courvoisier 360 was shot in 360 with a 5 camera GoPro setup, and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro with SkyBox 360/VR Tools. All the text, graphics and large logo on the nadir were easily added in the proper 360 format.
