Nvidia has chosen what is the best 3D video of 2011 from the clips published on their 3DVisionLive.com portal the one they’ve considered to be the most ambitious, compelling, and technically excellent. That video is Peter H. Chang’s Deus Ex Homine that is an impressive compilation of motion-controlled stereo 3D time-lapse photography taken in the San Francisco area, a video that was also featured here on the blog back in October last year. So if you have missed seeing it back then, then you should take a look at it now as it is indeed impressive and looks really well in stereo 3D mode. You may also want to take a look at the gallery containing the best 12 stereoscopic 3D photos that Nvidia has chosen from the thousands of 3D photos uploaded by users in 2011 in their stereoscopic 3D community website.

This is something that you must check out in 3D. A short stereoscopic 3D motion-controlled (moco) time-lapse video footage shot in San Francisco showing: server farms, indoor gardens, and brilliant artist/sculptor Jeremy Mayer building intricate and lifelike “robots” out of typewriter parts. Thanks to Peter H. Chang for sharing his impressive work, the music in the video is by Michael McCann “Icarus” from Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Canon 5D Mark II digital cameras were used in both parallel and beamsplitter configurations for true, native stereo capture at 5.6K resolution RAW and camBLOCK and Dynamic Perception were used for motion control. You can see a 2D version of the video here, but you should definitely watch the 3D version as well. You can also download the 3D video from the link below (it is the YouTube 3D version embedded above), the video is in Side by Side format with half horizontal resolution (squashed), so don’t forget to select 16:9 aspect ratio when opening it in the 3D Vision Video Player or the Stereoscopic Player. As usual feel free to share your comments about the video below.
