If you still haven’t seen the stereo 3D trailer for the upcoming movie Men in Black 3, then you should take a look at it, although the stereoscopic 3D trailer still hasn’t made it on the official website of the movie, it has been available for a while already on 3net’s YouTube channel. Have in mind that the movie was not shot in 3D, and was instead converted to 3D in post-production, but the end results judging from the trailer are not bad. So do take a look at the YouTube 3D video embedded above, or download the 3D movie trailer in MP4 format (Side by Side with half horizontal resolution) from the link below, and as usual feel free to share your feedback about the video should you watch it. The release date of the movie is set for May 25th, 2012.

Fire Ants 3D is a very interesting documentary stereo 3D movie by 3DigitalVision, the same people behind the 3D movie Alligator Kingdom that I’ve posted about about a yeah and a half ago here on the blog. The movie is about one of the most successful creatures that has ever lived – the fire ant, and it includes a lot of 3D macro photography exploring the secret world of the fire ants, creatures that are apparently becoming a global problem. You can watch the official trailer embedded above from YouTube in 3D or download the video from the link below, it is in Side by Side format, half horizontal resolution, so don’t forget to select 16:9 aspect ratio when opening it in the 3D Vision Player or the Stereoscopic Player. You are welcome to share your comments about the video after watching it…

You can watch the short 3D trailer for an upcoming 3D movie called “Over the Sky” from Cesar Sommer, whose nice work in 3D format has already been featured here a few times. You can also find the 3D trailer of “Over the Sky” in his 3DVisionLive channel for 3D Vision owners, where you can also find some other of his works. The short movie was shot in collaboration with Clin d’Ailes, and although the final production release date is not set yet, it should be around February or March next year.
Cesar was kind enough to also share some details on the production of the movie, apart from the fact that he had some fun while shooting it as you can see from his impression on this photo. Most of the video was shot with the Sony HXR-NX3D1 3D camcorder, although for some scenes he also used the Canon 5D mark II stereo 3D rig he has built, although according to Cesar it was almost impossible to film the quick flying jets with it. The final movie might also have some in-cockpit 3D footage from the planes, but that is not yet finalized as shooting from the cockpit of a flying plane in 3D is something that needs to be carefully planed and executed.
The production pipeline consisted of a few steps with the first one being the use of the MVC to AVI Converter software form Peter Wimmer to split the .MTS 3D video file from the Sony camcorder into left and right AVI streams. The videos produced from the Canon-based stereo 3D rig are already in separate files for the left and for the right eye.
The next step of the production was to import the video files into Adobe After Effects for color grading and lining up the separates files, so that you can get a nice looking and properly aligned stereoscopic 3D movie in the end. Then the final step is to export the video from After Effects as a single left/right AVI file and cut it in Adobe Premiere. As I’ve mentioned already the project is still a work in progress and some extra footage will probably be shot and included in the final version, although there is still some time before we would be able to see the end result in 3D. Meanwhile you are welcome to share your feedback from the stereo 3D trailer, and ask some questions if there is something more you are interested in…
