Bororo 3D Plug-In

Current version: 1.2.1 (Build 8)

Bororo 3D is a plugin for Sony Vegas and any other video editor that supports Sony Vegas DirectX plug-ins. With Bororo 3D you can edit and produce stereoscopic videos.

It allows you to composite the left and the right video streams into a single stereoscopic stream, such as anaglyphs viewable with 3D glasses, videos interlaced horizontally (as in field-sequential DVD) or vertically or in a checkerboard format, left/right suitable for YouTube 3D format, above/below, as well as left-only or right-only. You can produce predefined anaglyphs or create your own anaglyph format.

It allows you to place 2D objects in 3D space, so you can create 3D text, move 2D photographs closer to the viewer or farther away from him, even create 3D animations of 2D drawings.

It allows you to properly align 3D videos produced the Loreo Lens-In-A-Cap 3D adapter. As a matter of fact, I wrote this plug-in precisely because I needed to edit my 3D videos produced with that adapter.

It allows you to create 3D iris transitions, with or without lens distortions. While these transitions are specifically designed for 3D stereoscopic cinematography, they can also be used creatively in 2D videos.

The plug-in is free. Just download it from the link below. To install it you have to be logged in as an administrator, but once it is installed, you can use it whether you are logged in as an administrator or as a regular user.

The setup software has the .msi extension used by the Microsoft Installer that comes with Windows. You can either double-click on the file (after you have downloaded it, of course) and it will start installing, or right-click on it and select Install. If you want to uninstall it, you can either use the standard Windows programs manager, or just right-click on the .msi file again and select Uninstall.

All hail to Pythagoras and his theorem, without which this plug-in would not be possible.

Download

Download the 32-bit version here. Obviously, it only works with the 32-bit version of Sony Vegas since 64-bit software can only use 64-bit DLLs. And 32-bit software can only work with 32-bit DLLs. You can install it on a 64-bit version of Windows. As long as you are working with 32-bit Sony Vegas, it does not matter what type of Windows you have.

I do have the 64-bit version of the plug-in available for download as well. It installs and works with 64-bit Sony Vegas.

If you have both versions of Sony Vegas (32 bits and 64 bits), you need to install both versions of the Bororo 3D plug-in, since Windows only allows 64-bit plug-ins to work with 64-bit software, and only 32-bit plug-ins with 32-bit software.
