for 360 spherical use 

Focus: Masking featured added Jun 2019

Previously the app has limitation for zoom feature which is paramount for micro detail work such as 360 images 

Gain:  Masking tool lets you zoom in and mask out the foreground, when you flip thru the library of skies there is generally no need to tweak 

about skylab app: library of skies - see main review page

note: limiations for 360 sphercial but some work arounds, good for the price 


June 2019 

images used were extracted from 360 video (quality lower than norm)

in regard to 2nd test, applying the apps effects and Motion 
comment on the 1st test are nested in the googe doc this page

1. app Skylab    sky masks 

in regard to the added feature of "Masking" 
much easier to apply the library of masks with the "Masking" feature 
for the standard pics I'm sure its easy but for 360 spherical we need more zoom as we have to work in greater Micro detail having comrpessed a 360 view into a flat image

no spherical view aspect in app / lacks res., currently around 6000

2. app Werble   motion effects

totally love this app, endless list of features and variables 
awesome with images and 360 

no spherical view aspect in app / lacks res., currently around 6000

WARNING: lab test often includes multiple widgets embedded objects which means the page needs a little more time to download 
so be a little more patient than norm

the test done by me as a end user and share to community free when I have time, the limited time is applied to the practical use of the product not spelling / grammar and window dressing as its not a commercial activity
