Because the invention of the stereoscope in 1830, stereoscopic 3D has remained at the leading edge of the media and leisure undefined. each 20 to 30 years, a brand new new release rediscovers stereo filmmaking, fueling its resurgence with extra twists brought by way of the technological developments of the intervening years. This encyclopedic dictionary deals a definitive compilation of data at the artwork and technological know-how of stereoscopic 3D, together with nonetheless and relocating pictures; movie and electronic picture acquisition; creation, post-production, distribution, and exhibition; and human visible belief. as well as normal dictionary definitions, it comprises many prolonged encyclopedic entries and approximately three hundred black-and-white and colour illustrations. Taking the secret out of 3D's precise language, the paintings offers a foundation for transparent verbal exchange between pros and old context for these new to the self-discipline.

Example text

Cross distortion Visual anomalies caused by asymmetrical coding. crossed axes See cross-eyed viewing. cross-eyed viewing; cross-fusing; cross-viewing A stereogram presentation technique where the left-eye image is placed on the right and the righteye image is placed on the left. The 3D effect becomes apparent when viewers cross their eyes, causing the two images to align in the center. There is no specific limit to how large the individual images may be, but the larger the image, the more convergence required to view it, the more blurry the image may appear to be, and the fewer people who are capable of viewing it.

The device is then re-set to record another image. Compare CMOS. CCD width 30 CCD width See imaging sensor width. center of perspective The point where a compound lens’ optical axis intersects the entrance pupil. If the lens (and the attached camera) is rotated about this point, then the relative perspective of near and far objects within the frame will remain constant. If the lens is rotated about any other point, there will be perspective distortions. The center of perspective is an ideal point to use when measuring the interaxial distance between lenses when recording a stereo image.

Compare parallax. See binocular disparity image in color section. binocular free-viewing; binocular freevision See free-viewing. binocular fusion See fusion. binocular luster; binocular lustre 1. A difference in the reflective brightness of an object in leftand right-eye images. Such objects, when fused into a single 3D view by the human vision system, appear to have a shiny, or lustrous appearance. This is a natural phenomenon often associated with the surface reflections of metal or polished gemstones and is caused by differences in the amount of light reflected into each eye.
