A "stereoscopic" image or video presents a different image to each eye, giving a 3D effect.

Loading 3D Media

3D image clips and / or 3D video clips can be added to any project, using the instructions in Loading or Creating Clips.

When loading a 3D image or video file, you will be asked to select its stereoscopic format. Check the Use this format for all 3D files I load check-box to set this as the default. The default format can be changed later in Options: Export.

To change the stereoscopic format of a clip after it has been loaded, use the clip properties dialog.

Saving 3D Videos

Follow the instructions in Saving, Sharing, or Burning a Video. Select the Stereoscopic 3D output format, as shown in Output Video to Stereoscopic 3D.

Information for the left and right eyes are stored in separate parts of each frame. If the frame width or height is set to half, then it means that the output will be shown stretched as if the input 3D file were squashed to half width or height.

Information for the left and right eyes is stored together, by shifting colors. Glasses with different colored lenses are required to view the 3D effect.
