Roxio brings 3D moviemaking to the masses

Get ready to make your own Avatar, because stereoscopic 3D content is now in the hands of anyone willing to shill out for the latest installment of Roxio’s Creator software.

Roxio says that adding the ability to create 3D videos was by far the most requested features from users of its Creator 2010 photo/video editing suite.

Roxio is well-known for its personal video creation and DVD-burning software applications. It is also used by many independent filmmakers and freelance photographers.

Creator 2011 offers a whole variety of 3D exporting options. Users can convert 2D projects into 3D through Roxio’s built-in conversion process. It also supports native 3D content captured on capable cameras, in both video and still image formats.

In addition, movie makers can make their movies in old-school 3D – using red & blue glasses, a pair of which is included with the software – or with the new stereoscopic 3D standard.

Users who are ambitious enough can even encode their movies in RealD format, the exact same standard used in virtually all movie theaters for 3D film screenings.

Content can be burned to DVDs as well as Blu-ray Discs. Roxio has been supporting high-def media creation since the beginning of the HD format war.

Creator 2011 is available now as a digital download from and will be available in retailstores in September.
