I Can’t Breath!

I can’t breath through my nose right now, but hopefully the huge bag of meds I got from the doctor will help… and soon!

Moving on with the “trusting my eyes” series, I shot the 3D video in this 360 3D scene with a Canon VIXIA HF R400 camcorder and my image-splitter with a 5-inch stereo base. I’m not happy with the video quality, so I will go back to using my 4K Sony camcorder for my image-splitter recordings.

Viewable in 2D or 3D.


The Shadow Of The Beast

Let’s watch another 3D video together! While we’re doing that, I’ll explain the situation with the intro and outro, and the shadow of The Beast.
The video of the park was shot with my homemade image-splitter with a 5 inch stereo base that I call “The Beast”.

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


Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° virtual reality.

Wearing sunscreen here in southern California is extremely important, and I’m doing everything I can to remember to wear it every time I go outside.

Back to 3D with this composited live-action video, recorded with my Sony camcorder mounted on my image-splitter with a 5-inch stereo base that I call “The Beast”.
I got lazy compositing 2D videos, lately—correcting the keystone distortion then applying the proper barrel distortion for this image-splitter is a huge pain in the butt!

Created with Blender and Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13.

I Forgot How To Use This Thang!

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

I was going to get out early this morning and do some runnin’ and gunnin’ for a 360° 3D virtual reality video, but hadn’t played with my 5 inch image-splitter, *The Beast*, in so long, I almost forgot how to use it! By the time I got it set up, it was so bright and sunny outside, I needed to put a polarizer filter on the lens, but couldn’t remember if it worked with *The Beast*.
I used a Spherical Stereo Blender template to determine the degree of spherical wrap I needed with the 1.5% of net deviation in the video, to insure the depth won’t hurt anyone’s eyes, which ended up being 130 degrees.
Next week I should be totally ready to get out there into the real world and finally do some serious 360° runnin’ and gunnin’!

The Beast In 360°

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

Here’s my picture-in-picture 360° 3D virtual reality gag, where I place a square 3D video shot with my 5 inch stereo base image-splitter, *The Beast* into a 360° 3D virtual reality Blender scene.
You can see my new “logo” placement at the top and bottom by looking almost straight up or almost straight down in your virtual reality VR headset, e.g., Google Cardboard 2.0.
I looped the short picture-in-picture video a few times, so there’s enough time to look around.
