"Virtual 3D" is a bit of a generic request. It sounds like you might want to wrap it cylindrically around your environment, but you might want be referring to a process which involves cutting out all of the pieces of your photo, and placing them in 3D space - to mimic where they physically were in real space.
There are a few tools that might help, including Trapcode Horizon, Zaxwerks 3D Camera plugin, and just basic 3D in After Effects.
Hi, thanks for your answer. This is what I'm looking for:
http://www.5min.com/Video/After-Effects---Virtual-3D-Photos-21791377, so I'm not sure if this is what you were referring to or not. I don't think the author of this tutorial created a different 3d space, but again, my AE knowledge is very basic.
Thanks so much,
The tutorial you linked to clearly demonstrates the process of masking and compositing different elements into 3D to space to create virtual depth and camera moves.
After Effects is the tool to use to create your material, but you will need a DVD authoring application, like Encore DVD, to then put your rendered AE material onto a DVD.
If this doesn't answer your question you'll need to provide us with more specifics of what you need.
Here's another explanation/tutorial about the process:
Hi, this is what I'm looking for. I just didn't know if I needed another application to render my finished image to DVD, now I know I do.
Thanks for the help,
I think you can make a viewable dvd if you're on Vista via Windows Movie Maker.
I have XP home edition, can I use that version's movie maker to render the DVD?
of course you can, but, don't get me wrong, you can also use google.
I think that's right anyway...
WinXP doesn't have DVD burning built in. "Vista Yuck" Have you actually used Vista or are you just repeating what you've heard? I'm generally very happy with Vista, even more since I upgraded to Vista64 at home. Basically, if your computer can't run Vista, it isn't gonna run Windows7 (which is Vista with a spitshine)...
There may be a Beta for Windows Live Movie Maker that you could use with XP.
I think Nero can also burn DVDs, if you have that. Maybe EasyCDCreator as well.
