So first of all you need your 2 videos with the perspectives or the left/right eye saved in AVI-format. I used for example with 3ds Max the Cinepak compression and it worked also fine. For best results of course: no compression.
Now you need the following tools installed:
- My version was: Release build -- 1.9.11 (stable), 32-bit (x86) version
- My version was: v.2.5.8 ST, 32-bit
Now a simple AviSynth script is created merging two separate videos to one output, which we can load afterwards into VirtualDub:
Code: Select all
a=directshowsource("PATH_TO_FILE_right.avi") b=directshowsource("PATH_TO_FILE_right.avi") final=StackHorizontal(b,a) return final
Load the Script to VirtualDub
This is very easy! Just open VirtualDub and drag'n'drop the file sidebyside.avs into VirtualDub. You will see that it is opened.
Save the Video in VirtualDub
The next step is one of the most hard tasks for you in this tutorial! You will have to click File -> Save as avi and then you have to invent (!) a new name for the file to save. You may want to call it something like "FILE_sidebyside.avi".
Just a hint: Prior saving you might want to change the compression rate in the menu Video -> Compression. (If this option is not active, change in the same Video-menu to "Full processing mode".)
Upload the video to YouTube
Now you can upload the video FILE_sidebyside.avi to YouTube like you do it with any other regular AVI-file!
Define the video as a 3D video on YouTube
Now you have to go into the regular viewing mode while you are logged in to your YouTube accoint. In the upper left corner there is a button saying "Info bearbeiten" ("edit info" or something similar in English). Click on this button. The new menu shows different options. But for us is only interesting - of course - "3D-Videos". Click on this option. The new menu shows three options. Choose the 3D video type at the bottom "Dieses Video ist bereit ein 3D-Video" ("This video is already in 3D" or something similar in English). Now you have to choose the correct side-by-side option "Nebeneinander: Linkes Video auf der linken Seite" ("side-by-side: left video on the left side"). Finally, click "Änderungen speichern" ("Save Properties").
You are finished, enjoy!
