Since the mid 1900s producers have endeavored to exploit our two eyes by making 3D films. Presently, because of a flood of moderately reasonable 3D TVs, you can appreciate the additional measurement outside of the motion picture theater—with recordings you’ve shot yourself.
For huge spending motion pictures, cinematographers utilize two cameras connected together and isolated with a bar splitter. In any case, except if you have Hollywood-level cash to toss around—an apparatus costs no less than a couple of thousand dollars—you’re in an ideal situation with a less expensive double focal point camera, which can accomplish a similar impact. (There’s even a cell phone, the LG Thrill, that shoots 3D with stereoscopic focal points.) On these cameras the focal points record two recordings all the while.
Step 1: Acquire two identical video cameras
Join the cameras to a settled surface around 6-7 inches separated. I found a bit of metal and a couple elastic groups that worked. You need the cameras quite level with one another (think how your eyes work) yet don’t sweat getting them splendidly adjusted, your going to settle that in stage two.
Step 2: Record video from both cameras
On the off chance that this isn’t self-evident; you will record from the two cameras in the meantime. Anyway you don’t have to begin both camera at the very same time since we can without much of a stretch match up them when we do the altering. Which conveys us to the dubious part… The end design we require is a solitary video document that has the two sources next to each other. A little Googling found a Windows app called StereoMovie Maker that will help you combine, sync and align the two videos. It’s not the most intuitive software so here is the workflow we developed:
- Transcode your video files to MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 (StereoMovie Maker only supports these formats).
- Click File -> Open Left / Right /Movies…
- Select your two video files.
- Use the arrows at the bottom of the screen to sync the timing of the two videos.
- Click Adjust -> Easy Adjustment to open the adjustment window.
- Focus on something distinct in the background (like the power outlet in this example) and using the horizontal and vertical sliders align the red and blue images so they completely overlap
- Click File -> Save Stereo Movie.
- Make sure you select the Side-by-side option.
- Select the Microsoft Video 1 compressor. YouTube has no problem reading this format and it is significantly smaller then using no compression.
On the off chance that you did this all effectively then your spared video should resemble this, the two recordings sources next to each other in a solitary document.
Step 3: Upload to YouTube
Upload the video to YouTube and add the tag yt3d:enable=true. This advises YouTube to consolidate your two one next to the other recordings into a solitary 3D video. That is it; once YouTube has wrapped up the video you can go to its YouTube page and test it out with your Red/Cyan glasses. On the off chance that have Amber/Blue or Green/Magenta Glasses you can utilize those rather by flipping the 3D alternatives alongside the fly out catch in the lower right hand corner of the player.
