Google released three new features to YouTube to help become more imaginative with video production:
Convert your 2D videos into 3D with a single click. (beta!)
“Once you’ve uploaded your 2D videos to YouTube, you can convert them to 3D with the click of a button. Converted videos will be viewable by everyone in 3D,” explains YouTube. You’ll still get best results with a 3D camera, but it’s a great new way to let people enjoy your finest moments.
You’ll find this feature by selecting “Edit Info”, then “3D Video” on a video you’ve uploaded. (Note, you’ll still need glasses to watch on most devices.)
All verified users in good standing can now upload long-form videos
YouTubers with a clean track record (who complete an account verification and continue to follow the copyright rules set forth in our Community Guidelines) — now can upload videos beyond current 15 minutes limit.
To help upload longer videos, Google also recently launched resumable uploads, “which ensures that you won’t lose any of the minutes you’ve uploaded if your internet fails or your computer dies during the upload process. You can resume uploading right where you left off once you’re back online,” Google stated. (Note: Advanced uploader is no longer required to upload large files.)
Shoot, edit and share your videos easily with vlix and Magisto, now on youtube.com/create
Finally, Google added two additional video creation platforms to make videos even better: Vlix and Magisto.
“Vlix lets you spice up your videos by adding cool effects and text to the video intro and closing.” And, “Magisto takes your unedited video and automatically edits it into short, fun clips,” explains Google.
