For Christmas this year (2019), I wanted to make and print a FIFA20 FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) card for my kids. Both play rec-league soccer and I thought it would be a fun gift for the both of them.

The process for working with Ricoh Theta S VR files requires a couple intermediate steps before you can import the footage into Premiere. I can’t speak to any other editing software but I would expect it to be the case for others as well.
