About Kartaverse

Kartaverse is a free open-source post-production pipeline that is optimized for the immersive media sector. If you can imagine it, Kartaverse can help you create it!

"Karta" is the Swedish word for map. With KartaVR you can stitch, composite, retouch, and remap any kind of panoramic video: from any projection to any projection. This provides the essential tools for 360VR, panoramic video stitching, depthmap, lightfield, and fulldome image editing workflows.

Kartaverse makes it a breeze to accessibly and affordably create content for use with virtual reality HMDs (head mounted displays) and fulldome theatres by providing ready to go scripts, templates, plugins, and command-line tools that allow you to work efficiently with XR media. The toolset works inside of Blackmagic Design's powerful node based Fusion Studio and DaVinci Resolve Studio software.

Installation

Kartaverse is an open-source (GNU LGPL/GPL v3) toolset. It is distributed through the WSL Reactor package manager for Resolve/Fusion. Install the Reactor package manager, and select the "Kartaverse" category on the left side of the Reactor GUI to access the tools. If you want to use the latest fuse based tools select the "KartaVP" category items. You can select and install the "KartaVR" and "KartaVR 3rd Party Libraries" packages if you would like to use the KartaVR scripts and macros.
