Hi,

I've been playing with some pics from my archives to see if I can obtain a valuable stereo-effect from a single image by just using software.

This pic gives good results on my screen, but how will it be after the processing at Photobucket and here ?

Just a test !

You'll need red/cyan 3D glasses to see the effect !
Let me know how you like this !

After a bit of reading on the net, and some comments on other fora,
I have now started doing the "real" thing, ie, shooting 3D from two pics (left/right) and merging them into one with a software called StereoPhotoMaker (free and works well)

Here's two samples from yesterday.

... slightly different in technique - and from 1914... interesting how this part of the photography was developed over time.

Here is a sample from my unique collection of stereo views by the French artist Ary Bitter (a sculptor).

I used to have an old 50s stereo camera. It was a ton of fun. I've been thinking about getting the Loreo lens for micro 4/3. These are very cool. Wish I had some glasses.

Wow, Red, that's a very nice collection that you have in your virtual museum.
It would be interesting to convert some of those stereophots to Red/Cyan anaglyps for easy 3D viewing !

Thanks for posting these !!!!

CU,
Rafael

I will try it... what do I need for this? From all my stereo slides I have cleaned high resolution scans.
And how to wacht them - do I need some special glasses?

Hi, Red,

you would need special glasses, the Red/cyan ones, but those are very cheap at EBay.

Like here :

Red Cyan 3D items - Get great deals on DVDs Movies, Electronics items on eBay.com!

Furthermore, you'll need a free software called "stereophotomaker" that you can download from here :

StereoPhoto Maker (English)

Than, you will have to crop a copie of your hires scan into a left and a right image. Load both of those into Stereophotomaker, and choose Easy Adjust.
Align the images horizontally and vertically (should be easy, you might also try the Auto Align feature). Click OK, Select Stereo, and Gray Anaglyph, then Red/Cyan.

And then you'll see your 3D image !

I went through the process with the lowres image you posted, and this good result came out :

It would definitely work even better with the hires scans !

Red, if my explanation isn't clear, just let me know, I'll gladly help you !

Instead of using red blue anaglyphs, which mess up the color, I use side by side parallel images. I can cross my eyes most of the time but I also use a prismatic side by side viewer. They are cheap, like $2-$3. $2 for the little one, $3 for the bigger one. They work really well.

Loreo Products - LOREO Pixi 3D Viewer

To get the 3D images, I use a Fuji W3. The cheapest 3D camera capable of video you can find. HHgregg in the US sells them for $199 every once in a while. Twice in the last month. It's normally $400-$500.

Thank you Rafael

I can't run your suggested program on my mac - but I will try to find out a photoshop solution - as I understand the principle the left/right separation is made by the two differen colors. But first I need some of the glasses so I will be able to test my experiments.

And I own this Loreo 3D Stereo Viewer - good for printed stereo pictures: Loreo 3D Stereo Viewer

Hi,

I'm glad that some have joined in and share their experience.
That's the goal of this topic : show what exists and how to use it.

Red, sorry, I did not realise that you are on Mac. My mind is all filled with MS :redface:

I have ordered a LOREO viewer from Ebay, US. They seem to be unavailable cq ridiculously expensive here in Europe.

My final goal is to present an exhibition of 3D pictures for the next Christmas market here in our village. At this time, I'm just checking the technics, the final shoot should start in 1-2 months until late autumn. The theme would be 'nature in La Hulpe'

Have a nice day,
Rafael

It's cheapest to buy it directly from Loreo. It's $3.50(USD) shipped anywhere in the world. Even on ebay, third party sellers charge more than that just for the viewer and then they charge shipping. I put a link to it earlier in this thread.

Thank you all for this interesting topic. I used to take stereo images with a Leica and a stereo attachment (fits in front of the lens and gives a stereo pair on a single frame).
I could actually use this adapter with a Leica lens on my E-P2 - I need, however, to make a holder to fit the adapter to Olympus (the one I have is for Leica III). I shall do this and hopefully post some results in the near futere.

Hi, 3D lovers :biggrin:

today is a lovely sunny day in Belgium, so I went for a shoot in our park.
Exclusively 3d shooting, with G1 and 14-45 kitlens, on tripod with focusing rail as a slider.

Here's some results. You need a R/c viewer to see the effekt.
I'm still awaiting arrival of my prismatic s/s viewer :mad:

Thanks Raf for starting this thread, nice to "meet you in 3D". At last I have found a real 3D fan! I'm looking forward to the 3D bloggie from Sony. Oh yes, I'm a 3D fan, so is my wife.

You and your wife are more than welcome to join in, Herman !
What are you shooting 3d with ? A dedicated camera or double shot with an ordinary camera ?

I'm surprised that we have not so much participants yet :frown: I think that in a few years everybody will own a 3D TV and shoot 3D pics and video.

We might as well be prepared :biggrin:

Here's two more from yesterday's shoot.

My Loreo Pixie 3D viewer has arrived, so I did a test with side by side 3D

I find it more difficult to view than anaglyps, but once you get to it, the effect is nicer, IMHO.

I have also purchased the LOREO 3D lens to complete my package :biggrin:

That works great with my pixie viewer. The thing is that it needs to be the correct size or distance for it to work with it. I find the effect much better than the red/blue method. It's even in color.

I look forward to hearing your opinions of the Loreo.....it's been on my list for a long time. I missing shooting in 3D since I sold my stereo realist.
