New Stereo 3D Trailer for How to Train Your Dragon in Full HD

June 4th, 2010 · 5 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


We’ve already had a lower resolution version of the 3D trailer for the movie How to Train Your Dragon, but now thanks to ReMichael we also have a slightly different stereo 3D trailer for the movie in Full HD resolution, Side by Side format. You can download the new higher quality trailer and enjoy it while waiting for the movie to be released on Blu-ray 3D maybe later this year if we are lucky, or more likely next year if we are not…

Stereo 3D Trailers for How to Train Your Dragon and Monsters vs Aliens

April 24th, 2010 · 9 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


As you probably know getting your hands on some stereoscopic 3D content, besides games on the PC is quite hard and the movies studios are still not officially releasing any promotional materials for their already released or upcoming movies in 3D. Come on… releasing trailers in stereo 3D for 3D movies just like they do with 2D trailers should be happening now, but nobody is doing it. Still it is good that sometimes these trailers (I’m talking about just trailers, not whole movies) can find their way on the internet, so that we can enjoy them on our 3D-capable hardware. And now we have two new trailers in true stereoscopic 3D mode circling around for the animated movies How to Train Your Dragon and Monsters vs Aliens that you can download and play. They are in a Side by Side format, 16:9 aspect ratio, but unfortunately they are not in Full HD quality, although still they offer high resolution and good quality, so you will no be disappointed. And don’t forget to leave your comments below when you watch the trailers…

Minoru – The Worlds First Consumer 3D Webcam

September 1st, 2009 · 3 Comments · Shooting in 3D

Minoru (meaning Reality in Japanese) is an interesting product in the form of a web camera that uses two lenses and two CMOS sensors in order to be able to take Stereoscopic 3D pictures and videos. The camera is not much expensive than a good normal webcam and even looks cute and a bit strange especially while sitting on top of your monitor, but that makes it even nicer…

The camera is supposedly very easy to setup and use in both normal 2D mode (just like a normal webcam) and in 3D mode, where it can output and record not only in the most commonly used Anaglyph mode, but also Side by Side and Row Interlaced mode. This means that you can produce S3D images and videos for easy viewing with anaglyph glasses or with other more expensive and providing better results products and technologies such as Nvidia’s 3D Vision or IZ3D’s Monitors. When taking video you can use up to 1280×480 resolution (Side by Side for 640×480 in stereo 3D mode) with 15/30fps, but for achieving good results at 30 frames per second you’ll need good lighting around you. The software is Windows only (seems to be frequently updated), but there is something going on for Linux support too. The recommended price of the Minoru 3D Webcam is $89, 50 pounds or 80 euro, depending on where i the world you live, which is pretty affordable, so I’m going to order one of these and try it out pretty soon. With the camera you also get a 5 pairs of anaglyph glasses, bit I’m actually more interested in producing videos for viewing on the 3D Vision… ;)
