Aims of the Project: Digital 3D video has slowly been gaining steam over the past few years. 3 . Provisional Project Title: Music Video on Global Warming in 3D 3. • Research in the area of post production of high definition 3D video by applying visual effects to the recorded dual camera footage. Student/Group: ID: 09052765 Name: PALUTLA MANIKANTA NAGENDRA 2. • Research in the area of providing digital 3D content to the audience in the form of a music video aimed at capturing more attention than the conventional 2D music video. The advantage of a digital 3D video over a normal 2D video is the depth and a real life like effect created in front of the human eye. The main aim of this project is to research in the following areas of digital video production in 3D – • The method involved in shooting a high definition 3D video using the dual HD camera setup.1. Topic/Area of research: Topic Area of research 3D music video on the Recording and Editing of environment 3D Digital Video 4. • Research in the area of compositing high definition footage from the dual camera setup by applying Map effects on the RGB channel of the footage and there by achieving the required 3D effect on the music video.
creating a stereoscopic 3D effect in front of the human eye. A workflow is set to execute the project in the following way – 4 .5 minutes to 4 minutes depending on the composed music and produced video. Green and Blue Channels of the digital video so that the opacity of the layers on the video tracks are in lines to create a 3D effect when using a 3D software for playing the edited videos. One of the most important aims of this project is to apply the visual effects on the edited high definition footage and derive 3D visual effects from the composition of the dual video tracks. A video can be converted into 3D and can be played using stereoscopic player software that can play both the 2D video tracks by differentiating them respectively. Having the digital footage ready. The last aim of this project is to research the impact a 3D video could make on the end audience against the impact made by a conventional 2D video. Thus. the effects of pollution and the dangers of global warming.Digital 3D video is produced using different methods. The video will have lyrics in English language incorporating a ‘hip‐hop’ style to provide an attractive theme to the audience of the video. The aim of this project is to directly produce a 3D video by recording the footage with the dual camera setup. The total length of the video shall be between 2. The aim is to create a setup in lines with the conventional method of 3D video recording using a high definition digital camera without the analogue tape setup. Theme of the Music Video and the work flow design ‐ The idea of producing the 3D Music video is aimed at capturing high definition rich footage of the Nature in its best form. the next aim is to apply mapper effects on the Red. The project is well designed to meet the aims of areas of research as the production of the music video involves the below outlined steps. The music video explains about the Planet Earth.
PRE PRODUCTION STAGE: In the pre production stage. PRODUCTION STAGE: • Composing a hip hop song: The actual recording of the song with voice from the developed lyrics based on Global Warming • Shooting at the locations with dual HD camera setup in lines with the music produced • Marking the Footage from the dual HD camera’s 5 . The free locations that is suitable for the theme of global warming need to be identified with research. • Permissions to produce and documentation • Feasibility of the proposal: The project can be executed with the allocated budget and requires very well planning and production schedule. UK and USA • The approximated budget is planned for the production and costs are estimated to support travel equipment and 3d footage editing software. the storyboard and overall design of the music video is • Pitch and Treatment for the music video • Lyrics for the Music Video • Screenplay/Script • Shooting Script • Selection of shooting locations: free to shoot locations in INDIA.
• Recording live natural sounds for audio mixing in the post production stage. it was realized that they could easily be adapted to produce a stereoscopic image. One of the aims of the project is to research in one of the production area of 3D video production by implementing the latest digital trends in the present media practice. possible visual effects on both the video tracks(right and left) • Later import the edited video footage(left track and right track into a 3d editing software like neo 3D or Zwei‐Stein and Map the RGB • Match the final edited video with music track using professional audio editing software like the pro tools. • Output on DVD with 3d glasses 5. 2009). The present 3D digital video evolved from various stages of production of cinema in 3D. The chief executive of the Avatar film production stated that “ the live action sequences of Avatar have been shot with two cameras so you've got a left image and a right image to get the 3D effect (BBC. • Color corrections. Literature review and product research : 3D movies have actually been around a lot longer and almost as soon as the early still cameras were invented.” 6 . POST PRODUCTION STAGE: • Editing the video from the dual cameras (right video track and left video track) using non linear editing software’s like Avid or FCP.
2009). A detailed view into the history of 3D cinema is as follows ‐ Experiment Period: In they year 1838. is often referred to as the first stereoscopic movie ever made. Cineworld are planning to roll out LIVE 3D coverage of World Cup matches from next year's tournament in to selected cinemas. There are more than 1250 Hollywood films produced in 3D and the industry has more upcoming movies in 3D than the 2D versions.(Robbie.” Digital broadcasting in 3D has already begun with latest television sets in the market that support the stereoscopic 3D signal from the broadcasting companies in high definition. The real experience in a digital 3D cinema is achieved when the entire film is originally made in the 3D. The history of creating 3D content is over 100 years old and even today there are improvements in trends and techniques that are adapted to produce a more realistic moving 3D images on the screen. There is a wide transition in the methodology and the way 3D content is produced with change in time. The television sets are equipped with high image refresh rate to support a 3D signal processing. the inventors of cinema. The first 3D film in the history is L’arrivée du train which was filmed in 1903 by the Lumiere brothers.Product Review: The adaptation of the stereoscopic 3D images was implemented in different areas of film and digital video production. Since then many film makers have started experimenting on the concept of stereoscopy and laid a ground between they years 1900 to 1946 investing with small budgets in order to try and uncover the secrets of stereoscopic production. According to an industry source “England's 2010 FIFA World Cup matches will be broadcast in eye‐popping digital 3D in cinemas. The method of creating a 3D effect in films is very old as discussed with changes in the implementation of the process from a generation to another. stereoscopy has began and been used as a technique to create an illusion of a third dimension in the space. 7 .
which audiences discover for the first time while watching the film Transitions. In the years between 1973 to 1985. it takes its rightful place to capture its position in more friendly cost effective formats. With the commercial success of the 3D film Bwana Devil. However. Comin at Ya! 3D and Friday the 13th – Part 3 in 3D. released by United Artists in 1952. the little cardboard glasses still didn’t cut it and 3D disappeared once again.First Golden Age of 3D Film: The years between 1950 to 1960 is considered as the first golden age where 3D cinema gets its first boom. Although these films were shot with state of the art technology available in those times. 3D cinema finally comes into its own. in spite of its new‐found success. The first 3D film in the history of Hollywood cinema is ‘Man in the Dark’ released in the year 1953 but has not seen any commercial success. Although 3D is used only in specialized productions due to the prohibitive shooting costs. the emergence of new screening technology. including Hitchcock’s ‐ Dial M for Murder and Hondo. The age of revolution: Between the years 1986 to 2000. 3D cinema captures the attention of the major studios in Hollywood. with the invention of the Imax 3D format. The film makers succeed in creating interest with films such as Jaws 3D. 3D cinema resurfaces trying to resurrect it. starring John Wayne. 3D fell out of use because of the poor viewing conditions in most theatres and due to the complex equipment required to exhibit 3D movies. 8 . The age of Renaissance: After a decade gap from the first golden age. Then there was a release of more than sixty films. there was a production of new 3D films.
The demand for 3D continues to grow. The literature for the production of the 3D footage is available with some important publications like “Foundations of Stereoscopic Cinema” and “The World of 3D movies”. the second golden age of 3D cinema has begun with the advent of computer animation technology.The second golden age: From the year 2001. • Production of video with two identical cameras and editing the captured footage to and applying mapper effects on the video to create a right and left video tracks. 9 . Also famous online website publishes step by step procedure of making a – 3D Journal which has a detailed information on producing the 3D videos using digital video equipment and non linear editing software. Keep the same rule as with taking 3D photos ‐ the distance between the cameras should be 1/30 of the distance from camera to the nearest recorded object. A Review of 3D video production: 3D video can be produced using special methods and also can be created from the already available 2D footage. Some of the available methods of producing the videos in 3D are – • Stereoscopic conversion from 2D to 3D using the stereoscopic editing applications • Production of the video using the special 3D adapter like the ‘cyclops’ used for processing the images at real time at the time of production. One of the methods in producing the 3d video is by using two identical video cameras one beside the another each of them should be directed in the same direction to the scene. digital cameras and 3D home theatre contribute to the democratization of stereoscopic production and screening.
• Floor level measurement device to identify un even floor • Battery pack and extra charging units for outdoor shoot • A high end computer system to carry out the non linear editing. The hardware required to develop the 3D music video is given under – • 2 ‐ High definition digital cameras that are identical • 2 – Tripod/camera Stands to mount the digital cameras on the tripod base • A measuring tape to measure the distance between the cameras. Technologies Employed and Resources: Creating 3D content requires handful of resources.6. Skills required to execute the project individually – • Digital Video Camera Operation • Editing Digital Videos • Compositing/Visual effects • Graphic Designing • Mixing Audio tracks/Sound Design 10 . • 3D glasses to view the final video The software’s required to complete the post production of the 3D video are – • Final Cut Pro for non linear editing • Adobe After Effects for visual effects • Zwei‐Stein 3D compositing software to use mapper tool on RGB channels • Pro tools to mix the audio track with the 3D video footage The software specified is in par with the industry standards and more advanced than the other available in their category. Producing 3D content in high definition and uncompressed format demands a very high resources.
and then to do some conversions. when we press the Next button for the conversions finish. Click to the recording which shows a bigger bart of the scene and resize the frame in the left upper corner of Zwei‐Stein software to select only 11 . each of them should be directed in the same direction to the scene. The third steps is to download both recorded movies to your computer as usual. Using the Zwei‐Stein Software for creating the 3D video – Initially both cameras have to be placed one beside the another. It's only a small chance to start the recording absolutely synchronously. Click to the first recording and use the button Add Video Effect ‐ select Basic Effects ‐ Mapper. The second step is to prepare the actors and start recording simultaneously at both cameras. Now click with the right mouse button to the text "Right click here to import media clip". Click to the second movie and Add Video Effect ‐ Basic Effects ‐ Mapper. Creating of a 3D video The first method of creating a 3D movie uses an appropriate video editing software with color effects. Then to use the free software Zwei‐Stein. Then copy the file QTReader. Decompress the archive and copy to a directory.vfp. to the same directory. If using a recording from a still camera (often as a MOV file) then probably it need to be converted into a MPEG or AVI. Set Map Green and Map Blue to 0.5. Both videos were probably recorded by different camera ‐ and shows different size of the scene. Choose Import media clip and load your right‐ side recording (recording from the right camera). The same rule as with taking 3D photos applies here ‐ the distance between the cameras should be 1/30 of the distance from camera to the nearest recorded object. Then click to the same place once again and load the left‐side video. Set Map Red to 0. but it's not a serious problem. Need to start the software and set the right format. upper bar of Map Opacity set to 0. Install the software and run it.
Finished video can be saved by File – Export menu. To show different part of the clip just use the bar above the clips.the same part of the scene. The project is executed individually and it requires strong editing skills in digital video editing as most of the work depends on the edited footage. Experience with the software and Hardware ‐ I have experience in working with the digital video cameras and I would like to further learn and experiment operating of a high definition Digital Cameras. Now shift the clips on the timeline to show the same moment in the same time on both clips. You can check it visually in the preview window – on the right side of the software window. 12 . You can change source clips or 3D video as well. The skill set required to execute the project is well under control as I have a digital video work experience. If you want to change it then use a video editing software to change brightness and saturation. My skills on Final Cut pro can be further improved in the next semester where I would like to opt for the Digital Video Production module in the course. The 3D video is created using opacity ‐ not by adding colors ‐ and the video can be quite dark. which is recorded on the second video clip.
