|YouTube: 3D Video Creator (Using the 3D editor)|
Using the 3D editor
The process of creating 3D videos without a 3D camera usually involves sophisticated editing software and a lot of manual work. Our new 3D video creator tool makes combining two side-by-side videos into a new 3D video a simple and often fully automatic process.
Step 1: Place two video cameras side by side against each other, and record your videos.
Here are a few tips for getting the best results with this tool:
The difference in time between the two videos is calculated automatically using the audio track. For correct syncing, make sure the timeshift is less than 10 seconds. If the automatically-calculated timeshift is over 10 seconds, you can choose to manually specify a timeshift in milliseconds.
'Vertical alignment' options:
When filming with both cameras attached together (recommended), there is usually a very slight vertical shift between the two images. This can be corrected by manually specifying a vertical shift as a percentage of the video height.
If the cameras are not attached together, the vertical shift tends to vary. In this case, select Automatic vertical alignment. This will try to adjust both images vertically. For best results, don’t film close-up objects, and make sure the images have enough distinct elements in the scene.
