The Great Outdoors

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

Although I’ve had a lot of fun this week in my rec room, it’s time to get outdoors and look for more adventures, so let’s dim the house lights one more time and watch this video on the high-tech transparent projection screen.
BTW, the 3D video on the projection screen was recorded with my hyper image-splitter, which has a 5-inch stereo base.


Shooting Up Yogurt

Viewable in 3D and 2D. (Having problems? Try viewing it via or your YouTube app.)

I found a syringe for shooting up yogurt for the rest of my life, which will hopefully be another 50 or 60 years.
This video was also inspired by anyone who might think you can’t record a 3D video “outdoors” with a 20mm stereo base.
FYI, while waiting for this video to render, I tried filling the syringe with yogurt, and it works fine, except for the chunks of strawberries in the yogurt, which obviously need to be avoided.
Shooting up the yogurt went without a hitch, so it looks like a perfect solution, and cleaning up the syringe for the next person (or cow) was quick and easy. :/
Next week, Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise, I’ll shoot a demo of the actual process and results.

I Am Not Going To Get Fat!

Viewable in 3D and 2D.

This is my first adventure out into the real world, calculating a stereo base for my dual Canon 3D rig, using settings for a cubic illusion, but staying within the limits of a 2-inch to a 5-inch stereoscopic lens separation, which insures the scene will look “normal”.

Making It Look Real

Viewable in 3D and 2D.

Making sure my dual Canon 3D rig is properly set up before I get too serious, the fact that the stereo base was extremely close to human eyes in this scene was only a coincidence, as I explain.
I’m not going to jump to conclusions and say that this technique of calculating the stereo base is a better way to go, because I know getting lucky on a first attempt can happen more often than not.
So, let’s just take this one video at a time, okay?

Today’s Plans

Good morning, boys and girls. Here are my plans for today, subject to change, of course.

First, I want to show you my new no-glasses-needed 3D iPod screen protector that I’m trying to get brave enough to install, hoping it will work like some people on the Internet have reported, and not end up being just a $6 piece of EyeFlypaper for catching the fruit flies that seem to be attracted to our dark green homemade smoothies.

Sometime before noon I’ll be taking my daily dip in the hot tub, and for lunch I’ll be having black bean soup and one of my super-size dark green smoothies.

This afternoon I’ll be basking in the sun and 70’s temps at Bonelli Park, where I’m going to verify the proper stereoscopic calculations for *The Beast*, my 5-inch stereo base image-splitter. The last video I shot I accidentally used a 40mm focal length in the calculator, when it should been 50mm, thus violating my strict, precise cubic illusion rule of 2.8% to 3.8% net deviation with an eye-bulging 5%, which requires a 50 degree hFOV viewing; only 2.8% to 3.8% net deviation can produce an image unaffected by the viewing hFOV. Yup, you heard, me, partner, my cubic illusions are freaking magic like that, baby!
