YouTube gets 2D-to-3D conversion, drops 15-minute cap

YouTube deepens edit tools with 3D and more

YouTube boosted its editing tools Wednesday with more than what it had already added just last week. A beta addition lets users convert 2D videos to 3D with a single-click tool. The conversion is strictly software-based but will save the trouble for some of having to get a 3D-capable phone or tablet like the T-Mobile G-Slate.

Every user now has the potential to upload unlimited-length videos. Anyone who passes an account check through a phone text message will see the 15-minute cap lifted.

The regular editing tools have grown deeper through new deals. Vlix adds more effects than those YouTube added earlier, including text titling at the start or end of a clip. Magisto is a very rough parallel to Magic iMovie and automatically cuts raw video into shorter, more action-driven segments.

None of the features are available in a mobile app to date. The fuller features do reduce the need for basic editing apps like Adobe Premiere Elements or Apple's iMovie.
