If you watch Tik Tok, if you produce video clips to see on
Tik Tok that is, or Bigo, Twitch, Snapchat....
you've come here because you want to take the challenge:
produce your video in 3D
Well, no, not really. It's not like you're going to
recreated a 3D model of fabulous you.
That's best done with lightforms.cc
- complete with AR and AI and ML controls.
Because the light at the end of the
tunnel, well, it exists, an d it comes in many forms

Back to chillaxing... 3D it is
If you want to re-shoot that short video clip but add a 3D
component, simply do this:
record it with two cameras.
Mounted side by side on a rigid cros bar
Only about 1 foot apart, sideways. (2 feet max unless your
name is King King - big head!)
The separation of the eyes, less than a foot. Keep it
simple, make it a foot. or so.
If you prefer anatomically correct, closer to average
people's eye separation, probably 3-4 inches.
If you wear glasses (sunglasses, prescription glasses),
check the distance middle to middle, left to right.
or right to left.
So, two smartphones, preferable same models.
or two GoPro lookalikes.
start recording, do your thing
show side by side in the video editor.

hold one, I didn't say you see stereo

to see it, cross your eyes.
or look 'behind' the screen afar, to uncross them.
Yes either way will have your left and right image overlap
and pop into 3D.
What if you have only one camera, only one smart phone,
only one GoPro?
Get a friend.
With smart phone. Duh.
Or record yourself
two times is the charm.
If you are really good. And I mean REALLLLLLLLLY awesome
then you can manage to make two videos that look identical
as ou make your moves.
then just don't forget this little trick:
choose a slightly different angle between the two video

This assumes that you're not holding the camera in your
Or someone else's friend (such as that above-mentioned
friend but without phone).
The cam needs to be steady on a tripod or the floor or a
table, whatever. Don't turn or move the camera, move your
body side ways.
This will have similar effect to what two cameras see that
are separated by the same distance. Except for the

games with that blue screen and you don't want your eyes
to turn into bullet holes)

Yet aother option:
stay where you are, but turn (twist) a slight amount. That
will reveal a slightly different side of you.
First shot: from front, slightly turned left. That exposes
your rght cheek a little bit more to the camera view.
Think of what the camera man's (woman's) left eye will be
Then for the second shot, turn (twist) your feet the other

good, because we're done.
If you manage to create a side-by-side video composition
in which you are seen twice, and with that oh-so-special
slight parallax 3D stereo effect, let us know.

If some serious gamer gear,
