“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 360º 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.”
“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 mold, like an alchemist, to create surreal worlds, dreamscapes and alternate realities.”
Dan White, Director of Technology, Rapid VR
Los Angeles-based electronic composer Piers Baron's Music Video for "Majesty". Directed by Ty Evans, and part of "The Flat Earth" project. All VFX with Adobe Premiere Pro and Mantra VR.
Director Ty Evans shot his Skate Film "The Flat Earth" with both traditional and 360° cameras, framing 4K in Post. He used the Mettle Mantra plugin extensively in Post for all the innovative effects.
World Surf League teamed up with the Jeep brand and world-renowned production company Rapid VR, to pioneer new frontiers in digital storytelling. Mettle Mantra was used in Post for stylization and Virtual Dollies (adding depth camera movement in Post).
