It´s been a while.. but it is on!
I am proud to finally present “Industrie Dschungel 3D” to the world. The stereoscopic short film is about a boy who discovers a secret place hidden behind a wall where his surroundings interact with the scruffy industry scenery. The movie was being done as an appendix to my diploma thesis “Analysis of structure from motion methods for stereoscopic camera-rigs in order to place computer generated imagery into live action footage”. The movie was actually being finished in summer 2012. But I wasn´t quite confident about the high amount of artifacts caused by the poor AVCHD Codec that was being captured by the camera. After several renderings and a final color correction the artifacts were way too prominent to maintain a proper stereoscopic viewing experience which is why I decided to denoise the plates as best as I could and also try to improve the shots as much as possible in a “short” amount of time. And while I am talking about grain and noise… what do you think? Should grain in stereoscopic movies be like:
- A. diffuse
- B. equal on both plates, which means it has a layer that can move in 3D space – or
- C. on each element in 3D space (disparity map)
I tested many different settings and there will be an article about that topic in the next couple of days. But this is indeed something that can certainly define the look of a movie.
I also want to say thanks to the people who helped me with this movie and gave their support and their passion to create this movie with absolutely no budget. Thanks to all your kindness and support!
For a perfect viewing experience I recommend to watch the video on a fullHD Monitor with lineinterlaced polarisation with the 1080p setting on youtube. You can also watch it in anaglyph on youtube if you don´t have a stereoscopic monitor or on vimeo where you can find an anaglyph dubois version which has fewer ghosting issues.
Also… feel free to leave a comment! Cheers!
