Use Two Identical Camcorders To Create Simple DIY 3D Movies

Whether you’re borrowing a buddy’s or you’ve got two on hand, this clever guide will help you turn the output from matching video sources into 3D video.

They were definitely having a bout of Friday fun at the design offices of Zurb when they cooked up a workflow for converting the video output from two iPods into a simple 3D movie maker. You’ll need two matching video sources—web cams, camera phones, camcorders, anything will work as long as you can record simultaneously— to get started as well as some way to secure them together. In addition to the raw video you’ll need someway to combine the video into a side-by-side format. They used the free tool StereoMovie Maker. When you’re done you upload the videos to YouTube and let YouTube do the heavy lifting of layering your videos and generating the 3D movie.

Check out the full article at the link below to see how they set up the cameras, their detailed workflow for StereoMovie Maker, and additional tips for getting the most out of your DIY 3D movie making experience. Have experience of your own making 3D movies? Let’s hear your favourite tips and tricks in the comments below.
