Create 3D anaglyph images with 3 lines of Ruby code

Create 3D anaglyph images with 3 lines of Ruby code

Very nice summary of 3D still image concepts: Create 3D anaglyph images with 3 lines of Ruby code « saush. And I must learn Ruby on Rails programming. Looks easy enough (I already code, just not in Ruby). It really does take just 3 lines of code to create a red/cyan anaglyph, in Ruby. It’s not too bad in OpenGL either....

Some 3D photos (red/cyan glasses needed for viewing)

I shoot 3D video and this is a still frame from a 3D video I shot last night at the Arlington Fly-In and Airshow. You’ll need red/cyan glasses to view this in 3D. This is called – surprise – a “hot air balloon glow” when the burners illuminate the balloons at night. The balloons remained tethered for this night time...

I recommend the GTMax brand of red/cyan glasses, available at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0058GN6U2/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00) Related articles 3D video of FIRST Robotics demonstration at Spokane Hoopfest(coldstreams.com)

High End professional video cameras put up against a high end consumer camera and … lose

High End professional video cameras put up against a high end consumer camera and … lose

Surprisingly, perhaps, the high end consumer camera is selected as the best quality: Revenge of The Great Camera Shootout Part Two | Zacuto USA. The test “shoot out” showed 5 professionally made short films to a group of industry professionals and asked them to select which film looked best. The cameras used included the RED Epic ($35,000 to $40,000 w/o lens...
