Overview of Stereoscopic 3D in FCP
We can make money creating 3D video. With distribution expanding from theatrical films to cable and satellite channels and now to YouTube, there is a growing demand for stereoscopic 3D video content. This tutorial by Larry Jordan explains what you need to know to take advantage of this new technology. Best of all, you can get started for less than $100!
In many ways, stereoscopic 3D video is as easy to understand as rolling focus; as simple, yet complex, as lighting. Simply put, stereoscopic 3D video combines two video streams into a single image that provides a realistic illusion of depth. In this session, we'll define and illustrate key terms, show you how to create 3D images, explain how to quickly convert a 3D project into 2D, highlight key production techniques, and show you how to setup, adjust, and view 3D video in Final Cut Pro using 3rd-party plug-ins.
NOTE: You do not need 3D anaglyph glasses to view this presentation, though if you have them, you'll see results in 3D. 3D video in Final Cut Pro requires additional plug-in software, which is sold separately. You do not need this software to view this presentation. The software portion of this webinar demonstrates how to use the Dashwood Studios Stereo 3D Toolbox software.
This session is helpful to any Final Cut Pro editor looking to understand the new challenges of stereoscopic 3D video. At the end of this presentation you will know enough to begin working on your own 3D projects.
