Final Adjustments


I made some final adjustments to the new bike.
I recorded this video at 720 60p with another old 3D camcorder that I haven’t used in years, a Toshiba Camileo Z100. Although I shot the video down near the lake in the Santa Fe Dam Recreational Area, the background photos were shot with my cell phone up on the bike trail over the dam.

Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° virtual reality with spatial tracking audio.

You’ve Got Five Minutes!


Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° Virtual Reality.

I’m sorry it has come down to this, but as I explain in the 3D video in this scene, I have decided to limit the length of my 360° 3D virtual reality YouTube videos to five minutes.
I have introduced X and Y axis rotations to the imagery to make it more fun to look around the scene.

RIP Wells Fargo


Viewable in 3D and 2D.

The tall Wells Fargo Bank building you see here, on the north side of the 10 freeway, on Barranca Street, is moving to a new location (the bank, not the building, LOL) on the west side of Eastland Center.
BTW, I’m troubleshooting a problem with my image-splitter, so the excessive camera movement was intentional. 🙂

Videos Only?

So, yeah, what I think I’ll do with this new WordPress blog is (mainly) use it to archive my 3D YouTube videos, i.e., turn it into a video blog.

I’m rendering a video, now, called EyeFlypaper On My iPod, and in the video I’m explaining the issues I’m having with my new no-glasses-needed 3D iPod screen protector. Stay tuned and watch for a new video blog post on this new video blog (that’s old school terminology, baby!).

Okay, ’nuff said; let’s do this…
