973,289 3D Video Views: Close enough to smell YouTube’s breath!

Happy New Year to one and all from Enhanced Dimensions. Never afraid to blow our own trumpet(s) I thought today would be a good day to sum up what Enhanced Dimensions has achieved since launch around 15 months ago.

But first a final round-up of our 1,000,000 video views challenge we set ourselves in the last month of 2010.  Okay, it was a tough target but that’s the way we like it; make it a real challenge not just a figure that doesn’t have a bit of stretch. However the unfortunate news is we are just short of the 1 million views we’d aimed for  – to be accurate we’re 26,711 views short of target. Close enough to smell YouTube’s breath! This number is of views of Stereo 3D videos created entirely by Enhanced Dimensions across our Stereoscopic 3D Channel on YouTube, Vimeo & DailyMotion. We had promised to give £100 to Children in Need if we made the figure, but in the spirit of the season despite our slight shortcoming we will be making this donation anyway.

We’ll soon be posting details on some of our plans for 2011, including expanding our 3d operations to deliver many more exciting 3d projects. Fingers crossed we’ll be able to pull in more awards and also be able to further share our knowledge and experience to the burgeoning 3d skills market.
So 2010 the highlights and numbers:

  • being broadcast as part of Channel 4’s 3D Week
  • being discussed by Adam and Joe on BBC Radio Six
  • picking up an InvaZion Award for our 3D short film “FourPlay”
  • being a runner up in Sony’s 3D World Competition for our 3D short film “FourPlay”
  • releasing Scotland’s very first 3D music video “Gloria (The Death of Me)” by The Raw I’s
  • creating ident bumpers for Short & Sweet 3D (Londons first 3D short festival)
  • being a featured Partner on YouTube
  • being included on Nvidia’s 3D Vision Live Channel
  • having our 3d videos shown at multiple festivals/events around the world

We’ve also released a whole heap of Stereo 3D Training Videos that can be seen on our “3D in a Nutshell” Page. These include videos on:

  • Basic Stereoscopic 3D Animation in Adobe After Effects
  • Stereoscopic 3D using Displacment Maps and in Adobe After Effects
  • A 4 part series on 2D to 3D Conversion Using Adobe After Effects

And don’t forget our Stereoscopic 3D Channel that runs on YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion that has in total received:

  • Over 970,000 views of our videos
  • Over 5000 subscribed viewers
  • A fantastic level of positive feedback

And finally our free 3D Downloads including 3D Videos, 3D Desktops, 3D Greeting Cards and 3D Postcards for you to download and print have had coverage online and a huge amount of traffic.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped, everyone who has watched some videos, subscribed fed back, etc. In fact a great big thanks to you all for helping make 2010 such a great year for us.

Stay tuned for 2011, we’re going to take this to a whole new dimension!

The Million View 3D Challenge

I’ve decided to set myself a little challenge between now and the end of the year – to get the views of my videos over the 1,000,000 views mark. You think I can make it? And just to make it more exciting, if I succeed I’ll donate £100 to Children in Need!

Obviously this must be possible, but it’s a definite challenge. The current state of play is that I have videos running on three Stereoscopic 3D Channels – YouTube, Vimeo and Daily Motion. How these measure up in terms of numbers is that YouTube is way out in front currently sitting at over 700,000 views, next in line is Vimeo with just under 100,000 views and finally Daily Motion at around 3,500. Giving me a grand total of around 800,000 views. So can I get another 200,000 views in a little over a month? I’ll give it my best shot.

My tactics are simple – create a few extra videos, give away a few extra downloads, beg and plead with my facebook friends, do a little extra tweeting and we’ll see what happens?

Do you think I can do it? Check back throughout December and see… oh and make sure you get everyone to check out my 3d videos on YouTube!

ED 3D Videos – Half a Million Views and counting!

Stereoscopic 3D Video Channel Logo500,000+ views of our videos on YouTube and Vimeo Channels! Wow, what can I say, wow. Thanks to everyone who’s watched, subscribed and/or fedback on our 3D videos over the last year it’s been astounding to say the least.

Enhanced Dimensions went from a standing start last September with a couple of test 3D videos to go on to an amazing level of success. In the last year we’ve way exceeded expectations and have thoroughly enjoyed doing so. Admittedly far from shy about boasting about the achievements I thought I’d give a little recap of how well Enhanced Dimensions has done in 12 months.

Here’s the highlight (hope I don’t miss any):

…stay tuned though we’ve plenty more where that came from.

We’ve also released a whole heap of Stereo 3D Training Videos that can be seen on our “3D in a Nutshell” Page. These include videos on:

And don’t forget our Stereoscopic 3D Channel that runs on YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion that has in total received:

  • Now over 500,000 views of our videos
  • Over 1000 subscribers
  • A fantastic level of positive feedback

The big question is after a first year like that how do we top it? Stay with us for 2011 and see…

Enhanced Dimensions – As Seen On 3DTV

Channel 4 3D Week Showreel FULL HD 3D RED-BLUE Anaglyph from Andrew Murchie on Vimeo.

Three of our stereo 3D animations appeared on Channel 4’s 3D Week user generated content montage. They used Dots, Holographic Kiosk and Fourth Dimension (Dark Version). If you would like to see probably the best quality version of this currently online do take a look at our Channel 4 3D TV Week showreel on Vimeo – the quality is stunning.

You can see Channel 4’s (rather poor quality) montage here.
