Three-dimensional videos and 3D configurators have existed in one form or another since the early 1900s, but it was not until the 1950s that they became popular through the use of anaglyph glasses. The necessary equipment for the video production in 3D made at that time the creation of 3D videos on amateur basis very expensive, but with quite cheap video cameras, which are today very widespread, the video production in 3D can also be managed at home quite inexpensively.

What you will need.

You will need two identical cameras, a piece of wood 10cm x 5cm x 6mm, two identical screws as a tripod and 6mm longer than the wood, a computer for video production and 3D anaglyph glasses.

Construct your 3D rig.

Drill two holes for your screws at a distance of 6.5cm. Place the cameras side by side on the outer holes and screw them in so that they point in the same direction. Washers can be used if the screws are too long for the holes. To start the cameras at the sam time, it is helpful if your cameras have a remote control.

Make a movie.

Find a good place for your 3D rig and focus on something. If you need to start the cameras manually, keep in mind that the videos will have to be synchronized in post-production. Distant subjects won`t be as interesting in 3D because the change in position is less noticeable. Try to focus on people or objects that are nearby.

Convert the movie to 3D.

Transfer the left and right video to separate folders on your computer. Download a 3D tool like stereoscopic player. After starting, click on “Open left and right file”. You will see your video in 3D, if the images are not aligned, press CLRT and the up or down arrow to adjust it.

Produce and share your video.

To upload videos in 3D, many users use StereoMovie Maker, but other software is also available. With this program, you can open the sources, customize and sync them as needed, and then produce the video in side-by-side mode that can be uploaded to YouTube. Add the tag “yt3d:enable=true” to tell YouTube that it is a 3D video. Once the video plays, click on the gear icon and then select “3D options” to select the type of 3D glasses you want to use with the video. YouTube will then format it.
