Fxguidetv Interview with John Knoll About Star Wars 3D Conversion

March 7th, 2012 · 2 Comments · 2D to 3D Conversion


Here is an interesting interview from fxguidetv with John Knoll, visual effects supervisor at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) who was a VFX supervisor for Star Wars: Episode 1 and has also supervised the stereoscopic 3D conversion of Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace. In this interview John Knoll comments on his approach to the stereo budget, floating windows, parallel vs. converged, shooting stereo vs. post-converting and gives his views on how other studios are solving these complex stereo problems. It is a long and interesting interview not covering only the 3D version of Star Wars, but the use of stereoscopic 3D technology in movies in general talking about other good 3D movie examples and their approach to the use of 3D including Avatar and How to Train Your Dragon, so definitely worth watching, regardless if you’ve liked the conversion to 3D of the movie or not.
