Ocarina of Time 3DS is right around the corner, coming sometime next year. Some people might find a release that far away very painful and agonizing. But never fear! Stereoscopic OOT3D is here!
Vd0man2 has made countless 3D Youtube videos using some sort of “compiler,” where two videos are compiled onto one another to make one 3D image. This compiler can create 3D videos in many different modes, including cyan-red glasses, interleave, and of course the good ol’ stereoscopic mode. In honor of the OOT3D announcement, vd0man2 decided he would post one of his Ocarina of Time videos. You can watch the video above.
Instructions for different 3D modes after the jump, if you’re unsure of each!
All of these options are found in the 3D tab on the frame. Change modes by clicking the top option.
Red-Cyan Glasses Mode
This is the default. If you have any old 3D glasses, this is the setting for you, even though it doesn’t show everything in its correct colors. They have other color settings as well (Green-Magenta and Blue-Yellow), but you probably don’t have 3D glasses that use those types of colors. The 3D tab here gives you the option to swap the left and right lens colors, have a full color video, an “optimized” video, or a gray scale video.
We’re not entirely sure how this works – it just shifts rows of pixels. In the 3D tab, they give you the option to do row interleave, column interleave, or checkerboard interleave. We guess that you know what this mode is for already if you’re going to use it.
Cross the Eyes (Side by Side)
My favorite, and the easiest. All you have to do is cross your eyes to make the images match up. This gives you a swap sides option, a half width (utterly useless) mode, and a full width mode.
He has some 3D videos for other games as well, and they’re definitely worth checking out, so we recommend heading to his channel here.
