Stereoscopic 3D Movie - Wear your glasses

At the moment I'm doing some movies to underline and explain the services I offer a bit more in detail.
One of it is Stereoscopic 3D Rendering which is Part II (first one was Light Simulations).

So I took Lumion and the 3D scene from first movie to make a short clip to show the effect. The scene itself is basic and lit with some lightmapping plus I played with simple colors, perspective and reflections.

Cool! The 3D effect really works well.

Is this done strictly in Lumion? Did you do any post in Combustion or Composite? To
filter out red/cyan on the stereo images, etc.  i.e. Anaglyph type of basic stereoscopy?

Is it possible in Lumion to do stereoscopy for use with polarized or shutter glasses?

Nice work--would love to see more.

cheers

You can upload movies from Lumion directly to youtube. When you specify a special tag for the movie youtube will make it red/cyan for you!

Here are the tags:
yt3d:enable=true – Enables the view mode.
yt3d:aspect=16:9 – Sets the aspect of the encoded video.

In this movie he used an external program to add the red/cyan encoding but it's not needed. If you use the tag you get an extra menu which allows you to select several stereo modes.

When you click on the 3D options in YT, you can choose a couple of ways it is displayed (see screenshot 1). It will take you on this page. Also, when uploading a new video, you can select some options on stereoscopic movies now (at the bottom right of the upload page - screenshot 2). This will automatically insert those tags Remko mentions. Here is some info how YT 3D movies work.

And here is a video I made as a test (a 4th century, Late Roman / Early Christian "Cella Trichora", a cemetery chapel in our World heritage site)



You need to go to YT (click on the link below the embedded video) to watch this kind of movies as only the "new" iFrame embedding works, not the "old" object embedding way this forum software apparently uses

There is a free program called "Stereo Movie Maker" that will let you output stand alone 3d movies. The only problem is that you have to convert the native Lumion mp4 format as the program does not support MP4, and when you convert you loose quality (as happens anytime you switch formats.) Give it a try, it has allowed me to have 3d movies on my iPad...just grab some anaglyph 3d glasses on Ebay any you are off.

Brian, I've found you can open an .mp4 into Quicktime Pro and resave it as a .mov file with no conversion and no quality loss.  I had to do this previously to get lumion movies into Premiere CS3 before I upgraded to CS5.  It looks like Stereo Movie Maker supports .mov files.....might want to give it a try.

Yes its all Lumion. No post-effects.

Lumion gave me the movie Gaeius posted.
Then I used Stereo Movie Maker to make the movie and just uploaded to YouTube without the specific keywords.

So nothing special but looking nice. :)

Thanks for the tip, Brian (BTW your YouTube video says - to me at least - that it is "private").

Corel Video Studio can create 3D-"ish" movies from simple movies (NOT exported as 3D) however it is obviously a faked effect and since there is no real 3D scene in a video, I guess it is only calculating it from the different object moving relative to the camera.

I am not fully convinced by the output (but then my left eye is weaker and I can never fully enjoy these 3D movies anyway).

As for conversion - you can always export to image series and use that as a raw material in any capable movie editor and have your first format be compatible already...

MP4 is the same as the MOV container with H264 and AAC encoding so maybe renaming the file to .MOV might work too.
