YouTube intros long-form videos and new creator tools, adds 2D to 3D conversion
YouTube has unveiled three new creator tools, including single-click 2D to 3D conversion, which the video sharing network hopes will allow uploaders to become “more imaginative” with their video production. It has also allowed users in good standing to upload long-form videos, allowing for more than the standard 15 minutes of fame.
Apart from 2D to 3D conversion, uploaders also have new editing tools – Vlix and Magisto, available on youtube.com/create. Vlix lets video creators add effects, intro and closing text, etc.,. Magisto on the other hand automatically slices unedited videos into a montage.
As for long-form videos, YouTube’s new resumable uploads feature will help get those big files on the network, removing the need for other upload utilities. Only “verified users in good standing” will be allowed to upload these long-form videos, users with a clean track record and who continue to follow the copyright rules set in YouTube’s Community Guidelines.
