Apple Showcases Apple Vision Pro Video Features for Upcoming Headset
Apple has provided a more detailed look at its Apple Vision Pro video features, inviting select venues to watch 3D videos shot on the iPhone through their upcoming headset. With the arrival of Spatial Video recording in iOS 17, a limited group of individuals have been able to test out this new feature. Participants were able to shoot their own videos and view prerecorded examples in the Vision Pro. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with many users impressed by the immersive experience.
Joanna Stern of the Wall Street Journal and her Tech Things blog expressed her enthusiasm for shooting 3D videos with an iPhone rather than using the headset itself. During the demo, she recorded a video of a sushi chef holding a piece of sushi. When she watched it back on the Vision Pro, she was amazed at how realistic the sushi and chopsticks looked—they appeared to be in the foreground and closer to her than other elements in the video. However, Stern did note that recordings were done under controlled conditions and it remains to be seen how well they would perform in less-than-ideal lighting.
CNET also had the opportunity to film a chef preparing sushi and watched it back using Apple’s Vision Pro headset. Scott Stein described his experience as a beautiful 3D VR encounter.
While he acknowledged that both his video and Apple’s sample videos were visually stunning, Stein mentioned that he wished they could be recorded in 4K resolution. Nevertheless, he praised the exceptional quality and resolution offered by Apple’s Vision Pro headset when viewing iPhone photos or panoramic images.
TechRadar went even further, stating that spatial video could potentially become the killer application for Apple’s Vision Pro headset. Reviewer Lance Ulanoff commended Apple for creating an innovative technology that brings videos to life in an unprecedented way.
For those interested in editing their spatial videos, it is currently only possible to trim them on the Vision Pro headset or directly on the iPhone. However, Apple has assured users that this limitation will be addressed in an upcoming update to Final Cut Pro.
Apple plans to release the Vision Pro headset in early 2024, although they have not yet announced a specific launch date. The excitement among those who had the opportunity to experience the Apple Vision Pro video features firsthand suggests that it may become a popular attraction once it hits the market.
