"Digital Stereoscopy", the Bible of Modern 3D Technologies
Digital Stereoscopy is a new book by Benoit Michel, StereoscopyNews editor.
Digital Stereoscopy is the 350-page bible of modern 3D technologies in which students, amateur moviemakers, and professional stereographers will find a clear description of all facets of the stereoscopic business as well as detailed information on the 3D-image production, distribution, and presentation workflow.
Stereoscopic images are a century old but the recent rise of digital 3D in all aspects of audiovisual production allows for a constant high level of quality, making stereoscopy pleasant and comfortable for the viewer's eyes. The range of media influenced by stereoscopy is impressive, going from motion pictures and television to print and Internet distribution.
This book will let you discover the basic principles of how we perceive objects in 3D, how we can shoot 3D pictures and movies, what digital processes are required to produce quality 3D images, and how 3D movies are distributed. It also explains less known aspects of the production workflow, such as 2D to 3D conversion, storage, real-time transmission for broadcasting, and 3D Blu-ray authoring. The various methods of displaying and projecting 3D images will be covered, along with their pros and cons.
