3D Movie Making: Stereoscopic Digital Cinema from Script to Screen

May 12th, 2010 · 7 Comments · Other S3D Tech


I’ve been looking for a good book, written more recently and starting by covering how our stereoscopic vision works and then how its way of functioning can be taken advantage of in order to create the appropriate stereoscopic 3D content. A book that starts from the basics on how and why we see with depth and what it means to create a suitable digital content in 3D, that can be comfortably viewed in stereo 3D. It has turned out to be a quite hard task, but finally I was able to find such a book and it is called 3D Movie Making: Stereoscopic Digital Cinema from Script to Screen written by Bernard Mendiburu. The book is mainly targeted at people interested in 3D movie productions, but at the same time it covers all the basics of stereoscopic depth perception quite well and I found a lot of interesting things that I was not aware of. Of course it will be best if you are interested in 3D photography and 3D movies as this is the main focus of the book and especially how they are being produced and the specifics that the 3D format introduces. Even if you are interested only in stereo 3D gaming, you’ll still find a lot of information to help you understand how to achieve better results when tweaking the depth and convergence settings inside the game and why some games may give you problems even though they might seem to be rendered just fine in stereo 3D. The book also has an extensive list of references to useful websites and products – both free and commercial, that can help you in a lot of different 3D projects, especially if you consider to start shooting photos in 3D or even working on a stereo 3D amateur movie. For me the book was a great read and I’ve read it completely in one day, although it is over 200 pages, as it was indeed an interesting material to read and I could not stop myself until I’ve completely finished it. For me it was mostly stereo 3D gaming up until recently, but I’m starting to develop more and more interest in shooting photos and videos in 3D, so the whole book was full with useful information, and I can definitely recommend it to anyone really interested in stereo 3D…
