YouTube Now Allows 2D-3D Video Conversion and More

Written on September 22, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

YouTube enhances their editing tools and services once again with video conversion and more.

YouTube once again upgraded its editing tools on Wednesday, with more than what it had already added last week. YouTube added a beta that allows users to convert 2D videos to 3D with a single-click tool. The conversion is strictly software-based, but it will save the user to own a 3D-capable phone or tablet just to have a 3D-video.

All users now has the ability to upload unlimited-length videos as the 15-minute cap was lifted. This will be done by passing an account check through a phone text message.

The regular editing tools have grown deeper through new deals. Vlix adds more effects than those YouTube added earlier, including text tilting at the start or end of a clip. Magisto is a very rough parallel to Magic iMovie, and automatically cuts raw video into shorter, more action-driven segments. However, none of the features are available in a mobile app until now.

Samsung to Run Galaxy S II 3D Ad in Apple Devices

Written on July 02, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Samsung entitles Apple iPad users to have a glance of their newest smartphone, the Galaxy S II.

Samsung, along with its ad agency – Starcom – will produce an ad which will be released before the month ends. The said 3D ad is intended to be shown on the company’s top competitor, the Apple iPad. This first 3D ad presentation will feature Samsung’s newest smartphone — the Samsung Galaxy S II. Though they had pointed out that it’s not really a high-definition preview, the company promised that the ad would be very interactive and might catch the attention of most Apple users.

The 3D ad, which will run in UK, will reveal the Samsung Galaxy S II in different angles by using high-end visual effects, just so people can have a glimpse of its advanced specs. The idea that Samsung will run these ads on such mobile devices produced by their rival company is truly ironic, as tech geeks all know Apple’s claims that Samsung is copying most of the features of their products.

Perhaps these 3D advertisements will not only unveil the Galaxy S II, but will also let users define the real difference between Apple’s devices and Samsung’s.

Cave Story 3D, on its Way to 3DS

Written on February 12, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

This summer is going to be hotter as Daisuke Amaya's Cave Story 3D is being reconstructed for 3DS. Modern characters and environments are on its way!

The publisher of Disgaea, NIS America, announced yesterday that Daisuke Amaya’s Cave Story will hit the Nintendo 3DS this summer. Back in 2004, the Cave Story appeared on the indie scene as a freeware PC game developed by Daisuke Amaya. It immediately gained following due to its Metroid-style gameplay and retro graphics. In 2010, the Cave Story was ported to WiiWare and DSiWare.

However, the Cave Story 3D is no longer a straight port. Game developer, Daisuke Amaya, is rebuilding the game from scratch, with all the characters and environment being remodeled to look modern. Though Daisuke Amaya is not yet ready to divulge any details about the Cave Story 3D, new contents are already being added to give more depth to the game.

Get ready for summer, because this new game is going to be for the win!

When Will You Buy a Nintendo 3DS?

Written on January 16, 2011 by Chris Martin

1 person

For the Nintendo 3DS, probably the question now is no longer "am I gonna buy it?" but "when will I buy it?"

Nothing excites the urge to buy something than the glamor of a hype. “It’s new!,” “It’s different,” and for this particular era, “It’s 3D!” But most of the times, we just fall into the trap of the hype and usually get disappointed at the very end (M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender in 3D). Sometimes however, no matter how bad the reviews are or will be, you cannot help but take a bite at it for yourself, especially if its completely innovative beyond human comprehension. Nintendo is just a couple of weeks away from unleashing its 4-million strong (or weak) army of Nintendo 3DS throughout the world. The question probably now is no longer “Am I gonna buy it,” but “When.”

Overall, there are 3 factors that comes into mind whenever we ask ourselves is it right to buy the Nintendo 3DS or a new handheld console upon release. The games, the value/features, and the psychological reward that comes with it (aka bragging rights).

Nintendo Promises No Downtime on Game Releases for 3DS

Written on January 11, 2011 by Chris Martin

2 persons

Nintendo promises that it'll keep its momentum up for the 3DS by delivering a good line-up of games plus sticking to their release dates.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata promises that Nintendo 3DS players will not experience any downtime when it comes to game releases when the much anticipated handheld console breaks into the market. In an interview with Nikkei Keizai Shimbun newspaper, he states that it is “important that you be able to supply software with no pause.” He must’ve gotten the message when Nintendo fans got frustrated with the lack of games during the release of Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii.

In order for Nintendo 3DS to keep up it’s momentum, it’s vital that they’ll keep on releasing games after the launch of the console so that players won’t easily get bored. So far, the games we’re sure that will make a debut when Nintendo 3DS will come around is Resident Evil Revelations, Super Street Fighter IV, and The Legend of Zelda Ocarina. Not much for the arrival of the probably the world’s most revolutionary console, but perhaps its too early to tell.
