A 3D POST SIDE TRIP
To sum up, 3D is actually a process called “stereography”, where two slightly offset angles of the same image are combined to create the illusion of 3D depth. In order for this phenomenon to occur, it must rely on “binocular” vision, where BOTH eyes work together.
Did I say “both eyes”? That’s right, if you are blind in one eye or one of your eyes sees significantly better than the other, or your eyes don’t work in harmony then “POOF”, you cannot see stereoscopic 3D.
Sorry Nick. Even Superman had his Kryptonite.
This does not mean Nick Fury and others without the ability to see “stereoscopic” images CAN’T see 3D in real life.
Actual 3D perception relies on many other cues such as:
- When an object blocks another object
- When an object’s lines converge in the distance
- When an object loses detail
- When objects appear bigger or smaller
So there you have it. Nick Fury, Agent of Shield can enjoy “The Avengers” just as much as everyone else. He’ll just have to see the movie in 2D.
That’s ok though; because of “The Avengers” shear magnitude of awesomeness Nick will feel the action as if he were really there. Wait a second… Never mind.
Hmm. That just goes to show you.
Ok, now that we’ve finished our little side trip it’s now time we got back to the main topic. Next up, we’ll be discussing ways to convert our projects to actual viewable 3D images and movies.
