How to create 3D home video

Transform your 2D footage with Roxio Creator 2011

3D is set to go mainstream in 2011, but you don't need expensive equipment to jump on the bandwagon. We show you how to convert 2D video into a 3D movie.

Step 7. Now you’ve created your first 3D movie, it’s time to prepare it for viewing and distribution. The simplest solution is to create a separate file. You can choose any of the many video file formats supported by VideoWave, such as AVCHD and WMV. A range of 3D options is also available, including Anaglyph, Side-by-Side and RealD.

Step 8. Alternatively, you can send the project to Roxio MyDVD, which supports creating 3D in anaglyph or RealD formats for both standard-definition and AVCHD discs. While you can add chapters and import pre-encoded movies for inclusion within the same project, it’s not possible to create a menu for 3D discs.

Step 9. A more exciting prospect is offered by YouTube, which supports side-by-side-format 3D video. You can upload a 3D project directly to YouTube from VideoWave. Enter your account details, add a title and other information, and Roxio will encode your movie in the necessary format and upload it to YouTube.

Step 10. We uploaded our video to YouTube. Note the ‘3D’ option next to the quality setting – this lets you choose between a selection of 3D display formats. You can also choose different filtering schemes, such as Green/Magenta, if your 3D spectacles use these colours instead.
