You can achieve optical flow stitching on the Xiaomi Mi Sphere by using Yoichi Hirota’s amazing app, MiSphere Converter. You can clearly see with the comparison below there is a big difference between the Xiaomi app and MiSphere Converter.

I’ve seen many people asking how to do the calibration and were worried it would be to difficult & that they’d waste money if they couldn’t use it as it’s not a cheap app, so I’ve put this together to help show how easy it really is.

The app is currently only available on Google Play, you can download it here:
