Since one or two years before, more and more video fans have been focusing on a new and exciting technology, 3D. But what is 3D, or so-called 3-D? 3D means three-dimensional, i.e. something that has width, height and depth (length). Our physical environment is three-dimensional and we move around in 3D every day.
Humans are able to perceive the spatial relationship between objects just by looking at them because we have 3D perception, also known as depth perception. As we look around, the retina in each eye forms a two-dimensional image of our surroundings and our brain processes these two images into a 3D visual experience.
3D video adds stereoscopic vision, meaning that two separate images are shown simultaneously—one to each eye. This presents enormous technical problems which is why there is still no perfect system almost 100 years since the first 3D movie was made.
Common display methods include:
Anaglyphic processing (red/cyan glasses): The original 3D system, now largely out of favor.
Polarized light system (polarized filter glasses): The most common new system for cinemas.
Active shutter system (LCD shutter glasses): The most likely standard for the first generation of 3D televisions and other displays.
In the year 2009, the great work, Scientific Movie, AVATAR, was offered in both 2D and 3D version. Although the 3D enjoyment would cost a little more money, it is greatly welcomed by most of movie fans. The time comes to 2011, September. James Francis Cameron, the same director for Avatar, push his new work, Sanctum, to the screen in the cinema.
In this 2-hour-long movie, wearing the 3D Glasses, when the characters jumped into the Sanctum from the top of the mountain, you will feel you, yourself, follow the characters jumping and flying. And also, at the end of the movie, when Josh, the hero of the movie, the last live person for the whole adventure team, diving to the sea for survive alone, just by carrying a bottle of Oxygen in the hand, without any other additional equipments, you will be shocked to see his coming; it seems that he was swimming to you, closer and closer. If you are in a cinema which provides Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 sound effects, at this very moment, the romantic poem, " Kubla Khan ", written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, recited by Josh's father's voice in the movie, will surround you all the way while he is diving and swimming. You will be dreamed and enchanted in such a vivid scene:
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round:
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.
You will be definitely shocked to yield the difference between a 2D and 3D movie. 2D movie is just like a piece of flat paper, while 3D one will bring you to the real episodes, guiding you to adventure with the hero of the movie together.
That's really great.
Although the new model of camcorder supporting 3D effects have been on the market now, by Sony, Panasonic and Canon, it is quite expensive. So it would be good to have such a tool to convert 2D movie to 3D, to encode to 3D effects, and to preserve the 3D effects.
The new version of Aunsoft Final Mate is just such a tool. It can convert MTS to 3D effects, convert AVCHD/AVCHD Lite file to 3D effects videos.
It provides 3D video presets for MP4, AVI, WMV and MKV formats in HD quality, and also allows users adding 3D effects to any converted files no matter what formats they are. After your original MTS, AVCHD and AVCHD Lite file are being converted, you can enjoy the 3D effects by wearing the 3D red/cyan glasses on the screen of your home computer or TV.
