I struggle with one thing. I need to create a 4 way video for a pyramidal hologram. How can I do it using blender? I have tried to search everywhere but seems that Im not hitting the correct keywords.

Please see example of such video here

Thank you Mike

  • $\begingroup$ Sure I did, thats why I came across blender :-) I assume that there must be a function within the which will copy and rotate the clip. $\endgroup$ – Miroslav Slavik Dec 29 '15 at 15:24

Transform Effect

Transform strip effect is the way to manipulate input strips around the "canvas". As stated by the Blender Manual page:

Transform is a swiss-army knife of image manipulation. It scales, shifts, and rotates the images within a strip.

Select the given video strip and add several Tranform effect strips to it (the must all be referred to the input, the one in blue, so always pick it before adding each effect).

enter image description here

You'll not need to duplicate the strip several times, as the effect strip is already a copy of the input video itself, but with custom parameters.

Make sure to assign a Over drop blending mode to each tranform strip and mute the input one.

If you are planning to use multiple views (as shown in this video), just assing a transform strip to each input video:

The 4 input videos were made by rendering the same animation from 4 different cameras:
