Learning to “see in 3D” to improve 2D photos

As a 3D stereographer, I am always aware of the 3D space in front of me. And when shooting 2D, I often wish I was shooting 3D! The key idea, in this linked column, is that by learning to see in 3D, we can improve our 2D photos. You might think “seeing in 3D” is obvious – after all we see a 3D world around us. But truly, as 3D photographers...

3D continues strong in theater viewing

Films like “Batman v Superman” show that the 3D format still has a lot of life left Source: Don’t Leave 3D for Dead: Why the Movie Model Remains a Global Force (Guest Blog) While the 3D consumer-space market has diminished greatly, 8 of the top 10 films last year were in 3D and 3D ticket sales made up a huge part of the revenue of films released in 2D and 3D.

How to create 4K 3D Videos for Youtube

Using Sony Vegas Pro (and presumably newer version of Sony Movie Studio) I used the MainConcept AVC/AAC (*.mp4, *.avc) codec I selected Custom Frame size and set width to 3840 and height to 1080. I set maximum bps to 40,000,000 I set average bps to 32,000,000 On the Project tab, I set Stereoscopic 3D mode to “Side by side (full)” Upload the file to Youtube Add the following as individual “tags”...

Gondoliers inside The Venetian, in #3D red/cyan anaglyph

As you know, everything in Las Vegas is a little out there. Inside the enormous Venetian hotel and casino there is a canal and gondoliers shuttle visitors along the interior canal, while singing. This was taken with a Fujifilm W3, handheld, at probably 1/30th or 1/15th second (I didn’t check the EXIF) and ISO 800. The Fujifilm W3 becomes quite grainy at ISO 800 but it was needed in this poorly lit area.

#CES2013 #CES Report on consumer 3D cameras

Consumer 3D cameras are not selling. The Lumix 3D1 is still being sold but I picked up word that sales are slow and it might not be continued, perhaps later in 2013. Fujifilm is no longer manufacturing the Fujifilm W3 (confirmed) but is continuing to sell from existing inventory. I was told by a Fujifilm staff member who knows the issues well, that sales have dropped off sharply on the W3...

The opportunity for 3D is much larger than 3D movies and pictures

With our interest in 3D photography and video, we can get stuck on thinking 3D is just about photography or movies. But the future of 3D is vastly larger. As 3D monitors and 3D TVs become wide spread – which is likely a few years out yet – consider the impact this could have on line shopping. And especially when glasses-free displays are common on computers, tablets, phones and HDTVs and...

Online 3D Photo Web Sites

The following web sites are more than just Flickr – they provide online 3D editing tools. You typically upload two images, a side by side 3D image or an MPO file – and then make alignment and other changes “in the cloud”. Once done, your finished 3D image can be stored in your online photo gallery and viewed in multiple formats, as selected by the viewer – such as side by...
