3D Anyone?

So we we're retail therapy shopping at the dollar tree in town and I saw this pair of 3D glasses that were pretty high quality and bad to the bone looking. Like a pair of good shades with 3D lenses. 

I remember thinking I gotta get these because YouTube has 3D capabilities and I want to check it out. So I did, I got home and put these bad boys on and went to YouTube and typed in 3D movies.

I got an amazing first video to test these glasses- these 1.00 glasses that look like they're worth more like 20.00- made my 25" screen (or is it 22?) knock me out of my chair. Seriously  this was an extreme 3D video and basically just a guy holding a bunch of objects and poking your eyes out with them :) the 3D rendered by these glasses was incredible- not your typical red/blue eyes hurt the whole time type of thing I could actually focus into a single 3D picture. The outter rims have a light guard!

We're going back tomorrow and buying the entire lot of them and I'm going to render some power 3D videos from my current youtube stock and will be working on more for the fun of creating 3D videos for some tripknowlogy :). The glasses say they are for 3D televisions but it looks lenticular (two colors)... although even just walking through my house things are wicked cool- I think the lenses are cyan and magenta. Gonna write a wizzle about it- I was truly blown away.

If you have a dollar store nearby go see if they have em!  Heres a youtube video of them (random youtube video of the exact pair): http://youtu.be/trC8FH7SEHo

I'm addicted now to watching youtube 3d :)

You can also shoot 3D videos. Just read about some cameras doing that, and they're not top of the range. But I can't remember what they were called...

I'd be interested to know if they actually do work with any 3D TVs because red/blue 3D glasses filter colours whereas "clear" 3D glasses work due to the polarisation of the light, so I'd assume that they're not compatible, but I could be wrong...

@Paul, being from the dollar store I'm assuming whatever actual 3D tv these ever worked on was just the first anaglyph varieties. Many 3D tv's however also support the old school anaglyph format (reb/blue etc...) so it's possible actually, and if rendered into a 3D movie and downloaded to play on your TV (hooking the computer to the screen) then you can turn ANY TV into a 3D tv so to speak.

I was more interested in how Youtube renders 3D in almost any color, type, or format (even greyscale and interlaced versions). It used to only do about 4 but now the options are robust. For watching most 3D movies on Youtube they are phenomenal just make sure you choose the right color combination (click the bottom link that says change type).

@Mira, you don't need any special equipment just two cameras that are the same brand/model (for consistency in lens separation degrees). You can tie them together side by side with duct tape and cardboard. You film it then splice the two separate mp4 files into one playing simultaneously and parallel to one another (you do this in any video editing software even windows free version)- this gives you the two 3D images the glasses will separate later. From there you just upload it to youtube and render it in 3D (in settings it's a drop box, rendering 3D doesn't change the 2D version)... There are a bunch of tutorials for turning regular cameras into a 3D "stack".

You can also just purchase the right software to render images, videos, movies into 3D and you can watch both Youtube and your rendered videos (render then use a YouTube scraper to download the 3D rendered video... I found last night a piece of software that does this for you (imports video, renders in 3D pretty fast I may add)... still playing with it.

I'm thinking of using this as a gimmick to add to my meditation music CD's as a visual component (3D movie) because the glasses do make you focus and can put your vision out of whack especially during meditation- so it may help reach stage two :)

Here's Wizzley On 3D :) (glasses required) The problem is the software only renders the green almost blue so it's fuzzy in the dollar tree glasses but I remember they used to have these sleek ones that were red blue...
