Hyperstereoscopic 3D Video of the Kobe Fireworks

Four video cameras were used to shoot hyper stereoscopic video of Kobe Port Fireworks Display held on 6th August 2011, twin GH13 and twin GH2 with ultra-wide(18mm) for whole view and standard(50mm) lenses for the close-ups.

Filming very far subjects in 3D means you have to use a very large stereo base, a technique called hyperstereoscopy. In the case of this fireworks shot, the distance between cameras was 18 meters (59 feet).


The author, Inoue K3D, prefer DSLR videos for the fireworks shooting because of the low noise and color reproducibility, coming from large sensor and lenses. The video was edited by Inoue on Premiere CS5.5 as a stereoscopic multi-cam stream.

The video is visible in 3D on YouTube, but as this video is unlisted, you will not be able to found it with a simple search. Use this link to access the Kobe Fireworks 3D video. A variant with 2x and 4x slo-motion is here (in 3D again).

Inouek3D has its own 3D video channel on YouTube with some 50 HD 3D videos available.
