Introduction: How to Make a Hologram Video for DIY 3D Hologram Projector

About: Making is my passion!

I made a Holographic Video for my DIY 3D Hologram Projector (click here for the Instructable).

thebear1 asked for how to make a holographic video and might be someone else is interested in so here is my version. I'm absolutely not professional in this so if you have any advice or I made a mistake please let me know!

Step 1: #1

I use Adobe Premier Elements to make my video and there is an effect in it to mirror the hole video. (Effects->Perspective->Basic 3D)

I attached it and set the preferences to:

Swivel: 180°

Tilt: -22°

Distance tolmage: 19°

The last two was default. I think it's enough to flip it with 180°.

Step 2: #2

My original video has a 1920*1080 resolution and I want to make the end result be the same.

A little math:

I named the longer side to X and If you divide 1080/1920 you get the shorter side is 0,5625 X.

That's come easy from here you have to divide the end video's height with 0,5625 X*2+1 X.

The X will be nearly 508. It's not exact but good enough for me.

So now you know the X you can count the short side as well. It's 285,75.

I made a template what I can use in Elements to scale down the original videos.

Step 3: #3

I imported the template in white to the program because it has a black background.

Then the mirrored video four times to different layers.

After I had just to scale and rotate everything to its own place.

Step 4: The End

Click and watch the result :) (If the embed link not works just click here)

It sounds difficult but I did the math for you so now just scaling and rotating and it's done!

Make your own DIY 3D Hologram Projector for your smartphone.

    Not a Mac alternative, but I've created an iOS app called HoloVid. So if you've got an iPhone or iPad you could play hologram videos with any video you've got on the camera roll. More info up on



    Also, is there any other (preferably free) programs i can use to edit video?

    Play your mobile videos in 4 sides( Hologram 3D) by using "Holo Play Android App".

    I will try it
