Because the invention of the stereoscope in 1830, stereoscopic 3D has remained at the innovative of the media and leisure undefined. each 20 to 30 years, a brand new iteration rediscovers stereo filmmaking, fueling its resurgence with extra twists brought through the technological developments of the intervening years. This encyclopedic dictionary deals a definitive compilation of knowledge at the paintings and technology of stereoscopic 3D, together with nonetheless and relocating photos; movie and electronic picture acquisition; creation, post-production, distribution, and exhibition; and human visible conception. as well as general dictionary definitions, it contains many prolonged encyclopedic entries and approximately three hundred black-and-white and colour illustrations. Taking the secret out of 3D's exact language, the paintings presents a foundation for transparent communique between pros and historic context for these new to the self-discipline.

Example text

Assume an interocular distance of E (the space between the viewer’s eyes) and a 3D display that is Z distance away. If the screen disparity (the distance between the conjugate points in the left- and right-eye images of a stereo pair) is d, then when the conjugate points are fused into a single image, the perceived depth (pd ) from the viewer to the image can be calculated as below. This equation is a simplification, and does not work if d ≥ E or d is zero, but it does show how these different factors relate.

Compare wall-eye. cross distortion Visual anomalies caused by asymmetrical coding. crossed axes See cross-eyed viewing. cross-eyed viewing; cross-fusing; cross-viewing A stereogram presentation technique where the left-eye image is placed on the right and the righteye image is placed on the left. The 3D effect becomes apparent when viewers cross their eyes, causing the two images to align in the center. There is no specific limit to how large the individual images may be, but the larger the image, the more convergence required to view it, the more blurry the image may appear to be, and the fewer people who are capable of viewing it.

Surface imperfections may distort the reflected image. Even with special surface coatings to improve transmissive properties, different wavelengths of light may not be divided equally, leading, for example, to a characteristic blue color cast to the reflected image and a green color cast to the transmitted image. Bates stereoscope See Holmes stereoscope. B-B mode; base/base mode Presentation of a 2D image stream from a 3D master. Instead of presenting different images for each eye (as with a traditional 3D stream), B-B mode presents the same full-resolution base view to both eyes, creating a presentation that may be viewed normally without special glasses.
