Support VR 180° playback in an HMD
As someone who works primarily with 180° footage, I'd love to be able to put on a headset and view/edit/preview my work.
Currently I'd have to convert my sequence to 360° first, which significantly reduces the usefulness of this feature, and also negatively impacts performance.
I already specify that it's Equirectangular Stereoscopic Left/Right footage with 180° H and V, so Premiere should respect the sequence settings when viewing footage in a HMD.
Support for VR180 was added in Premiere Pro 13. This includes VR180 previewing out to HMDs. The Immersive Video Effects and Transitions also support VR180.
I agree and endorse this idea!
