The story of 3DJournal started in a museum in Spain. Or, more precisely, in Catalonia. And it started quite subtly - in a room of optical illusions. Visitors can see the transformation of images in mirrors or watch amazing 3D drawings when watching them with their noses to the glass. When we saw this, we thought: how could something like this be transferred to a regular computer? At the time, it seemed like a daunting task. But then we discovered these strange blue-red glasses in a drawer...
There was a time when it seemed impossible. Then only the chosen few, those who knew the right tricks, could do it. And now it seems that with a smart phone, anyone can create a 3D photo. But make no mistake: A nice 3D photo still requires you to use the right technique.
In order to create a 3D image from two photographs - or a 3D video from two videos - it is advisable to use specialised software to facilitate this. On the following lines you will find instructions for using a free program that can not only correctly compose the footage, but also makes it easy to fine-tune the image to ensure the best possible quality.
Custom 3D images can be created not only with a camera in hand, but also with some specialized programs. One of them can create all sorts of plants and other shapes that you can use either on their own or as part of various composite images. Where do you get the program and how do you use it?
3D images can be created not only with a camera and special programs, but also with a pen in hand or in a graphic editor. In the following text, we will not only look at the basics of 3D drawing, but we will also focus on a number of important rules that should be followed for every 3D image.
You already know the basic rules for taking 3D photos - and if you don't, you'll find them on a link below. This time, we're going to look at them in more detail and, most importantly, add some extra ones - to make sure your photos really are the best they can be.
Stereoscopy is not only about taking 3D photos and 3D videos. Let's take a look at a stereoscopic action game that takes place in the depths of space. Your goal is to disable as many enemies as possible. With 3D glasses, this task takes on - literally - a new dimension.
Taking 3D photos with a single camera or mobile phone has one big disadvantage - you can't capture scenes where there is movement. How to solve this problem? With a simple 3D camera, which will be discussed in this article. All the photos in the text were taken with it.
Would you like to make your ordinary photos spatial? Just have the right software and you're ready to go. Of course, the result is not the same as if you had already shot 3D, but it is still very good. In the following text there is neither a link to suitable software nor tips on how to use it.
3D movies are another attractive option for using anaglyph and stereoscopy in general. There are many 3D videos available on the internet, but not all of them are designed for blue-red glasses. But they can be helped. In the following text we will show how and give some tips on where to go on the Internet for 3D videos.
Most of the other 3DJournal articles give advice on how to use either a camera or programs that do 3D only sort of in passing to create 3D images. Here we look at one freeware program that has this right in its job description - so you can create absolutely any 3D scene with it. It's up to your imagination.
You may have tried creating 3D photos, 3D computer scenes and 3D objects, but it's worth thinking about how to create a blended 3D scene from them also. In the following post, we'll use the example of inserting a 3D character into a 3D scene to show how you can create 3D collages.
