You may want some 3D glasses ready
Hello, I woke up this morning and thought I'd start trying to make a 3D image using Composite lab, i have spent six hours figuring this out and finally i have done it.
Opening the video
Lets start off shall we? I used Er-no's Project one clip found in the example project folder.
OK, import your clip onto the timeline and right click it and press "Copy" then paste it on top of the first clip.
The first Grade
Here you need to go to your first clip and click the grade box, go up to the toolboxes for grades and click Ambient light leave it red and type in the box 91 this will redden your screen.
I have no found if you Turn the Red ambient to full it will be more realistic
Onto the second clip, we need to open the grade toolboxes again and click Ambient light and click the colour bar.
You will need to type in three numbers here to get the greenish blue. this can be found on the image above on the first three number bars.
Red = 79
Green = 230
Blue = 255
The rest will automatically configure after you type the third one in.
Once you have clicked OK you now turn the blue strength up to max
Now so far we can only see the second clip. While we stay on the second clip stay in the Grade toolbox mode and click transparency you will need to move this down to about 46.73
Heres the hard bit.
You now need to click Animation on the second clip and move it to the left slightly so it looks like the one above. Use your 3D glasses to see if it is in the right place. You will be able to tell as the character will appear to be 3D "DUH"
Ok now for some extras
Although the screen goes darker when you add some Transparency you can counter this by going to the First clip and decreasing the Gamma by five or more.
Always make sure the clips are timed up perfectly.
Try the method out using different objects and clips but be warned you may need to change the trasparency, Gamma, Ambient strength ect to suit it so it's 3D.
I hope you enjoyed the Tutorial and it helps you
