We are a british based company trying to get our name out there. Would love your thoughts on our latest video work, this is a very new sector for us, and we would really appreciate some professional feedback. Utilising green screen, video, and 3D modelling. Thank you very much!
The scientific journal Nature reports that scientists at the University of Arizona have announced that they have created the first 3-D holographic moving images. Anyone remember the "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you are our only hope" line in Star Wars? Well, that is apparently firmly in the realm of possibility now.
I am sure this will not go mainstream anytime soon, but it sure was a fun littlegadget to play around with, and the couple was quite interested in what I was doing with such a funny looking camera!
I didn't spend much time with the camera, just some test shots here and there. Here is a couple of the clips showing off the decorations. You HAVE to watch this on YouTube to view in 3D, the embedded stream will not give you the option:
When camera technology is still relatively fresh, nobody really expects manufacturers to put out a solid product in one of their first releases. That's why Fujifilm's newly announced W3 3D HD camera is a particularly pleasant surprise. With its 10 megapixel and 1/2.3 inch sensor, its 720p 3D video capabilities, and glasses-free LCD screen, Fujifilm has managed to set the bar higher than anyone thought it would be this early in the 3D game.
Gimmick or not, 3D doesn't seem to be making big gains, but it's not losing ground either. The jury is still out as to whether it will become a mainstay format or not. In the meantime, Indy filmmaker's are (as usual) finding ways to give a big budget look to their 3D films without the BB price tag. Here is a 'making of' video by Andrew Parke about the independent remake of the Zombie Classic "Night of the Living Dead 3D". The cinematographers have taken an interesting track in adapting traditional HD video cameras for 3D filmmaking. Check it out.
3-D is everywhere. From your television screen to the theater, movies and shows have been wowing audiences with cool visuals and investors with lots of money. We now know that companies can do 3-D, but does that mean it's here to stay?
In a perfect world with the right visual conditions, eyesight that can quickly change between dual-camera imaging gives the viewer that 3D feeling. But in non-perfect conditions the images fall flat, and some people actually get sick form 3D footage.
