They finally came out with an underwater housing for the Vuze and Vuze+ cameras.  

Here are my first three dive videos with the Vuze & Vuze+ mounted on a tripod:







I'll be uploading a fourth video in a day or two...

Their stitching software only runs on Windows 8 or 10, and I'm on Windows 7, so I bought a copy of Autopano Video Pro and am working up the 3D stitching learning curve.  I went SCUBA diving Wednesday and took the Vuze along to shoot some surface clips.  They're working on an underwater housing, but it's not available yet.  After a brief training session with a friend in Frankfurt, I came up with this video:



I also used 2D versions of these clips in my latest SP360 video.
How did you bring the files into Autopano? Did you need to use another software?

I use FFMPEG to separate the files.  

What I do is separate them into 4 3D files, adjust the 3D alignment in Vegas, then render the left and right views to separate files for input to AVP.  I find this helps with the 3D stitching.

Alternatively, you can use FFMPEG to separate them into 8 files and deal with the 3D alignment in AVP/Giga.

Here's one that separates 10 Vuze files (Het01 through Het10) into four 3D files, each.  Top/bottom full format with the right camera on top:

I can't seem to edit the last post...the first file above, input.txt, splits each Vuze camera into a separate file.

Curious, did you find that the stitching was not good enough with the Human Eyes Studio software?

Sorry, just re-read your original post. They do have the underwater housing but it's like $3000
