2017 Samsung Gear 360 updates specs: video editor not compatible with Mac OS

The desktop video editor for the 2017 Samsung Gear 360 is not compatible with Mac OS, revealed in an updated spec sheet.

Samsung updated the specifications for the 2017 Samsung Gear 360, and the new spec sheet shows that despite earlier announcements that it would be compatible with both PC and Mac,  the 2017 Gear 360's video editing software is actually not compatible with Mac OS.
But Samsung nonetheless still says that the 2017 Gear 360 is compatible with Macs:
It may mean that Macs will be able to run the stitching software but not the 360 video editor (which might be a separate program).


  1. Well, that's disappointing. The only system I have that even has close to enough power to do 360 videos is a Mac. I've got Win10 installed on it via BootCamp, so I'll do what I've been doing with ActionDirector, but, still, it's disappointing. Oh well! The camera seems even better than I'd expected, so there's that!

    1. Hopefully Samsung will provide a stitcher for the Mac...

      Best regards,
