As well adding their new video editing features to user accounts, YouTube has also now enabled a new tool that will allow you to convert 2D video into 3D with a single click. In the past creating 3D video use to require specialised equipment but as from today YouTube allows you to create it by selecting “Edit Info”, then “3D Video” on a video you’ve uploaded.
The new 2D to 3D convertor is currently under beta development so expect a few changes as YouTube tweak the performance and results of the new 3D conversion tool.
“We are launching 2D to 3D conversion. Once people have uploaded their 2D videos to YouTube, they can convert them to 3D with the click of a button. Converted videos will be viewable by everyone in 3D,”
Another feature added by YouTube today now allows verified users with a “good standing” to upload long-form videos, movies that are longer than the current limit of 15 minutes for most users. Read more about all three of the new features over on the YouTube blog post.
