When you export your video from your camera, if you are using a 360 video device chances are it is already in one of the popular 360 monoscopic formats: equirectangular, spherical fisheye or dual fisheye. When you play it back on your computer's default video player (example Windows Media Player), your footage does not look right because this is not a 360 video player. Below is likely one of the views you are seeing when you open it in a standard video player:

The gorilla of discount voucher sites had 52.7 million active users at the start of 2017. As one of the world’s fastest growing companies, Groupon has spawned many copycats, but is staying ahead of the competition with its focus on creative copywriting. Businesses can advertise offers to potential customers based on location in return for group purchases. Commission fees can be high (40-60%) and in order for customers to use discounts, they will need to be sizeable, which means building loyalty and encouraging upsells will be important to make money long term.
Looking to create real estate video to showcase a house? This real estate agent has set up the camera on a tripod in the middle of each room to allow the user to explore the house, room by room. They have then trimmed and edited the video together to allow the user to spend 30 seconds in each room to explore and move around freely. The benefit of 360 video is that the potential house buyer can explore freely and move around the environment as they wish.
If your camera exports a spherical fisheye or dual fisheye footage, some editing softwares require you to convert your footage into equirectangular format before you can edit them. Others, like Pinnacle Studio will work with these and convert them into equirectangular format for editing. If you have a device that captures your footage by stitching multiple cameras together (ex. a device that holds 6 GoPros to capture all 360 degrees), you will still be required to use stitching software to create a 360 file, video editing and stitching software are two very different things.
I normally don’t even feel strongly about apps. But man, oh man. These reviews are pretty unfair! This is a great app for anyone who’s comfortable with basic decent graphic design, knows how to create an audience, and read metrics to improve the performance of their advertising. I’ve worked as both a part time social media manager for a nonprofit organization on a university campus, with upwards of 1.8k likes on the page being added to my tenure with the effective use of the ads and the Ads Manager. I’m now a supervisor at an authorized dealer of prepaid wireless service, and I use the app to run the promotions for a store in the Inland Empire region in California. Using the audience parameters, I’ve been able to increase our sales with very limited and strategic use of location-based advertising. It’s a good app. Keep it up!
So you’re asking yourself ‘why would you want to convert my 360 video to standard video.’ There are always instances where you want the viewers to look to the left and not miss the important parts or where a 360 video is feasible, or not how to best showcase your video. As a standard video, you are able to be the director and take your viewer along the visual journey you wanted them to see.

If you are coming from the print world, you may need to rethink some of the things you learned in design school about "simple, clean" layouts. Interactive ads tend to be visually busier than print ads, but that doesn't diminish their impact. The ad should also feel just as native on the device as the app in which it was built. At the same time, you need to strike a balance between grabbing attention not going over the top.
