Dashwood’s Stereo3D CAT 3D Camera Calibration and Analysis System

April 28th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Shooting in 3D

The Stereo3D CAT application from Dashwood Cinema Solutions (Mac OS X only) is an on-location calibration and analysis system for quicker and easier stereoscopic 3D camera calibration. When you are using dual-camera stereoscopic 3D rig you need to properly align the two cameras before starting to shoot the scene. You need to get rid of things like rotational disparity, zoom disparity if using zoom lenses, vertical camera disparity and so on in order to get best results and to have less to do in the post production process. This takes quite some time to do every time, but thanks to the use of Dashwood’s Stereo3D CAT solution apparently this time can be greatly reduced, and apart from quicker and easier alignment of the 3D camera rig, you can also plan better the dimensions of a scene based on what will be the audience and on what 3D visualization system they will be watching the content you are shooting in 3D. To get the best idea on what features and how this software solution works you better watch the intro video above as it gives you a very good idea and shows the system in action. Currently you cannot order the Stereo3D CAT system, but Dashwood Cinema Solutions is looking for beta testers, so you can fill in the form on their website if you are interested in trying the product.
