When sequencing two Gear 360 dual-fisheye videos AME injects VR Metadata even though "Video is VR" checkbox is not selected.
See This wasted a whole day of rendering because even though I visually verified that the "Video is VR" checkbox was unselected, it still rendered with VR metadata.
Steps used to recreate:
- Take two Gear 360 (2016) videos and drop into AME. See droptostitch.png
- Verify that Export Settings->Video->"Video is VR" is unselected without making any changes.
- Observe that the video is set to render as "Match source - high bitrate". At this point if left to render it will render with the "Video is VR" metadata injected. See result.png
- To fix this issue you currently have to go in and manually check and uncheck the "Video is VR" box. Now returning to the main screen you'll see that instead of being "Match source - High bitrate" it will render as "Custom". Now the video will render as expected, sequencing the source clips together without injecting the Video is VR metadata. See expectedresult.png

You could try to export with AfterCodecs without selecting VR metadata ! https://autokroma.com/AfterCodecs/
