Made this video of the Gap at Piha today using "Magix Movie Edit Pro 17 Plus HD". Magix can upload the video direct to YouTube with all appropriate 3D tags set. It worked really well. 

Click through to YouTube to see it in 2D or a different 3D format (like red/cyan, if that isn't your default already).

I had a go at some "HDR" style 3D yesterday using pics shot with an LG Optimus 3D phone. 

I like it. :-)

Enjoyed this simple 3D demonstration video.

The guy is only poking a replica sword out of the screen towards the viewer but it is a very effective demonstration at full screen.

It is the best 'things coming out of the screen' type thing I have seen on YouTube.

Any more good ones out there?

This video looks awesome + 10 on my LG Optimus 3D phone. 

Maybe it looks good on a PC, too? [Update: Yeah. Awesome fullscreen with "Dubois" red/cyan]

The installation art along the Rugby World Cup "Fan Trail" in Myers Park in Auckland provided me with some interesting subjects for 3D video.

My own opinion is that installation art virtually demands any video be in 3D because the art itself is about the space it's in and occupying that space.

I shot this video at the recent Kumeu Country Fair. I now regret not getting the Saxophonist's name. Too shy at the time...and he was obviously busy. :-)  

Donations for his playing went to Starship childrens' hospital.

This video is the re-mastered version, which should play perfectly on glasses-free 3D devices like the LG Optimus 3D and HTC EVO 3D.

Wow, that worked really well. Must be the objects/subject nicely arranged from front to back of field with the geometric shapes of the shelves giving plenty of depth cues.

I've learned how to make the 3D as clean and clear as possible.

1. Shoot the video with a camera with clean lenses. :-)  

2. Align the video pieces horizontally and vertically to best present the centre of interest.

For the Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W3 camera video files, I use Stereomovie Maker (free app) and save them as "3D-AVI" files with 90% quality.  

For the LG Optimus 3D MP4 video files I use Magix Movie Edit Pro MX Plus. This function is under "Effects". Guess they had to put it somewhere. BTW, it must be the "Plus" version as the non-Plus version doesn't handle 3D video. 

3. I then compose, edit / render the video as side-by-side, left-on-the-left, half-width video files. These upload to both YouTube and 3DF33D.TV. In this format they will play on the PC immediately and, after some hours, they should play perfectly on glasses-free handheld devices like the LG Optimus 3D and HTC EVO 3D. I was quite frustrated last night when the Kumeu video would NOT play properly on my LG phone.....then when I tried it the next day......it played fine. There is a lag.

The key here is the ability to tweek the alignment for the centre of interest in each segment....then edit the segments together. The result should be effortless, headache-free 3D.

Update: I've expanded these comments into a blog post

I shot this in the early evening on the 16th of October. I was on the bus headed into the city.

The music is "Creative Commons" and quirky. I really like it. 

I especially like the second half of this video, when I turn to look across the inside of the bus, toward the setting sun....with other vehicles moving alongside the bus. You get a very strong sense of the reality of that moment.

I think this video highlights how well the stereo microphones on the Fuji Finepix Real 3D W3 camera handle LOUD audio. 

If I had made this video with my LG Optimus 3D phone the sound would have been clipping horribly and be virtually unlistenable.  But with the Fuji Real 3D W3 the sound is actually very good considering this is a public space and the sound source is both loud and about 3 metres away.

This video plays perfectly in 3D, glasses-free, on an LG Optimus 3D phone. You can also click through to YouTube and choose from the several 3D viewing options they support.

The sound is excellent. Will be interesting to see how much it can handle if you get to expose it to typically loud indoor gig levels.

linuxluver: This 3D video should blow you away.....

It was not very impressive in red/cyan, but the city bus video was excellent!!

I've worked out how to use Stereomovie Maker to 'align' video for best anaglyph viewing......though anaglyph is always a problem because it embeds the parallax in the image. If the image has a range of depths you're forced to choose the one you think will be the centre of interest. If the centre of interest is a smaller part of a wider scene.....then you have a problem.

The best way to see these is with a device that lets your own eyes adjust for the parallax....like cross-eyed, 3D TV (with glasses - but not anaglyph glasses) or a 3D viewing frame.

A short 3D video made up of clips shot in Toronto last month while I was going about my business. 

I wish Auckland had a pubilc transport system like Toronto's. It's so easy, cheap and fast to get around.  Most of the subway system was built when Toronto was half the size Auckland is now. Kiwis in Auckland have paid a high price by delaying the construction of good public transport.
