3D Movie Review - Avatar

I’ve seen many excellent 3D movies and this was the best! I felt immersed in a fantasy that was bigger than life. I think the best part of the movie was the story line and the acting. Both were very convincing and very real. James Cameron is a genius!

This movie definitely shows how well 3D can be done. The manner in which 3D was incorporated was amazing. The 3D effects were there to enhance the effects of the movie and not to take over the movie. I was really able to get right into the movie and it felt like I was really there.

Everything in the movie looked so life like and real.

I highly recommend you see the best 3D movie I have ever seen, Avatar!

Check out this article, Avatar VIDEO: Behing the Scenes Movie Footage, I found at The Huffington Post with the video from MSNBC:

Sample 3D Photos

My coworker took some very nice photos that I want to put up on the web.  He took the left and right images and I used some software to help me put them together.  Still, you will have to use your left right buttons to control the degree of separation.  I will try to improve on that with more practice or different software.
These are 3D images done with a pair of 2D cameras.  If you want to know more about how to take 3D pictures just look for my previous article about how to take 3D pictures.

This first picture is of a little guy that came to visit all those tourists at the Hoover Dam.

He was such a good sport that I had to take another of him.  I hope you can adjust the photo on your 3D monitor or 3D TV to get the right picture.

My last of the sample photos for today. 

I will work on providing more samples soon.  I hope you liked the 3D photos and are now ready to make your own.

A Bigger Than Life 3D Monitor

Pavonine Korea has come out with a 3D monitor that is a monster. Actually, it’s a bunch of monitors put together called the Multicube. They have put multiple 46” 3D monitors together into a much bigger display. The Multicube comes in two huge sizes, 4 units and 9 units. The four 3D monitor Multicube is a 2 by 2 and the 9 3D monitor Multicube is 3 by 3. That’s right, try watching a 3D movie on nine 46” 3D monitors! I’ve seen it at KES and it was amazing.
Pictures coming soon!

3D Movie Review: My Bloody Valentine

This 3D movie was awesome! I really found the movie to be quite fun to watch. Scary movies are always interesting for me. But when it’s in 3D, now that takes it to a whole new level! Definitely not a movie for kids, the gore is extreme and popping out at you in 3D!
The quality of the 3D effects was amazing. They are really turning 3D movie making into an art.
As for the acting and the plot, it was surprisingly good. They didn’t sacrifice the movie for the 3D effects.
I highly recommend this movie to any adults who like scary movies.

Where to find 3D movies?

So now you’ve got your 3D monitor or your 3D TV, but what can you watch in stereoscopic 3D? Well if you look there are a lot of places where you can find it. The internet is full of places where you can watch 3D movies or look at 3D pictures. Some are for use with 3D monitors and passive glasses, and some are anaglyph. It’s fun trying both!
Try Miracube for some samples that are coming soon. They are in the side by side format and are free to watch!
Another source is YouTube. I know you probably only watch 2D videos on YouTube but they also have stereo 3D videos as well.
If you have a few bucks to spend, then Amazon has 3D movies on DVD and CD for sale. New or used, there is a big selection. Especially good if you like scary movies in 3D!
One of the best places to go is Google Videos. It’s funny because this is one of the last places I thought of and I don’t know why. Google Videos is fun and easy to browse and watch a wide variety of stereoscopic 3D videos.
The next site has a wide selection of videos. 3D Movies .com has page after page for you to visit.
Where do you like to go for 3D movies?

Autostereoscopic 3D: No Glasses but still 3D

In the business people are often talking about stereoscopic and autostereoscopic but what do they mean?
Stereoscopic is a 3D picture or movie that has two points of view. You see them in stereo giving you the 3D effect. When you put on the glasses, they filter the images so each eye only sees one picture. That allows you to see 3D. This is often used for 3D movies and 3D computer games, but can also be applied to many professional areas like design, medical/bio, GIS and product presentation. Now you can work with 3D on the job and then go home and watch it on your 3D TV or 3D monitor.
As for Autostereoscopic, it is similar to stereoscopic 3D but you can see the 3D effect without wearing the glasses. With this kind of 3D, there may be two points of view or multiple points of view. There are different ways of making these displays such as the parallax barrier and lenticular lenses.

To know more about the parallax barrier, visit the site below:

Now for better or for worse you get to see your familily and friends jump out of the pictures right at you! Their new camera is capable of taking 3D pictures. But watch out! Now there are two lenses instead of one, so your fingers have even more chances of being in the picture.
But now you are wondering where you can see these 3D pictures after taking them, and that’s a good question.
You can read more at:

How to Make 3D Pictures

Taking 3D pictures can be very easy to do these days. You can either buy a 3D camera to take 3D pictures very easily, or you can use a regular 2D camera to take 3D pictures. To use a regular camera will take some extra effort but can still look very good.
First, take a picture of the desired object, person or scene. Now move your camera about 6.5 cm to the right and take a second picture to the right and take a second picture of the same object. Make sure that the height and angle remains the same. Next, copy the pictures onto your computer. Use a 3D image tool to merge the two pictures into one single image. This can be tricky and you should take time to choose the right software for you. Otherwise you might spend too much and the quality of your 3D photo might not be good.
Also, you should choose what 3D type you prefer for your image: side-by-side, or top-bottom. Save and enjoy your wonderful 3D image.

Just follow the link below to learn how to do it:
