3D Stereoscopic with Sony Vegas DSLR


3D Stereoscopic with Sony Vegas DSLR from Josh Pabst on Vimeo.

Using two T2i (550D) cameras you can create true 3D video.  It's not an easy task and you should not think you are going to shoot everything in this manner.  It is a major undertaking for an arguably negligible result.  We are not talking James Cameron 3D effects using polarized imagery on a silver screen.  We are talking the old school red/blue glasses.  There is not yet any other option readily available to the DIY -er like myself.  Nonetheless, the effect can be pretty cool.
Step One: place the two track into Sony Vegas with the 'left camera on the top layer.  Put that layer on "SCREEN".

Step Two:  First 'add effect' to the top layer (left camera) SONY LEVELS and change the output of the 'green channel' to = 0

Step Three:  'add effect' to the top layer (left camera) SONY LEVELS and change the output of the 'blue channel' to = 0

Step Four:  the result of solo' on the first track should be all red

Step Five:  on the bottom track (right camera) add SONY LEVELS again and change the output of the red channel to = 0

Step Six:  The result should be the look seen at left.  Next we need to align the images and then crop.

Step Seven:  Using the 'event-pan-crop' tool move the crop until the main 'target' of your video is aligned (ie, the talent)

Step Eight:  The end result should look something like this.  Now save the  Vegas file and drop that file onto a new Vegas timeline for a final crop of the resulting video/picture image.
