Thanks well yes, to appreciate the effect you need some red/left and cyan/right glasses.  They can be obtained for pence on Amazon.  Indeed, they cost more in postage.  Alternatively sweet wrappers, which is what I’ve used in the past.  In this image I had to shrink the filter with the camera and widen the angle so it converges on the bottom right hand corner of the image.  This is an old scene from Bryce 5 - brought into Bryce 7.1 and anglyphterized or anaglyphizorated or fed through the anaglyph-o-matic 5000 or whatever you wish to to call this system.

Of course, the modern-day cinema glasses are using a cross-polarised image technique that is totally different to the normal red/blue glasses required here for David’s and Horo’s images – so incredible a filter, and the best I’ve seen for a long time.


The toy, red/blue glasses usually get over-abused through crinkling, scratching…etc., (have discarded so many) because they are so flexible in their paper/cardboard-make-up. Taking out the polarised cinema lenses and sticking in one of the paper/cardboard ones into their frames to create a much sturdier setup is much better. All fun, of course, however, that aside, here’s a neat trick next time you are at one of those wonderful 3D-polarised cinema pictures while waiting for the feature to start. Hold up your own polarised glasses at arm’s length, grab your partner’s set, too, and while putting the two in alignment with each other towards the blank screen, reverse and rotate your partner’s set from 0 to 90 degrees on one lens only – you’ll notice that it will go from clear to blank-black as you rotate…so cool. I’ve heard that if you make other film-goers (ahem…attractive, girls in the next seat to you) aware of this experiment, they get extremely interested in you and your knowledge. But, I wouldn’t know anything about that pursuit…BASINGA…:)

@David
Looking at the picture you just posted, for a moment there I thought you’d found the route to my secret Peasant Girl dungeon on Second Life.  If you walk a bit further, just around the hill, you’ll find an old building.  To get in you just need to type “Peasant Master” into the access point and there you go, a dungeon full of babes just waiting to do as you tell them!


As for the naming, how about calling it the Brinnen & Wernli technique?
It’s something you both developed and it has a nice ring to it.


@Jay
Interesting stuff, I often go with my sister so I’ll have two pairs to check it out next time.  Sounds like the clear ones work like a polariser then, or like those variable ND filters.  You got me wondering now, if I had two variable ND filters with me, would they work as glasses. It might even be possible to adjust the separation effect.

@pumeco t
This polarising effect can be done also by dismantling just the one set of cinema glasses, and rotating, say, the left lens (reversed) in front of the right lens.


@David
I wonder is it possible to increase the ‘depth’ effect by combining an oncoming depth image to a receding one?

Yes, there will be video’s to explain every contingency we can think of with respect to depth effect, convergence and scale.

As it happens I’m involved in the installation and looking after of the local cinema’s 3D projection system.  This is the dolby digital 3D which uses an advanced version of the colour separation method and is superior to old two colour separation and indeed polarisation systems.  The new colour uses six filters in rotation and the glasses (which the cinema would not be pleased to see you wandering off with) cost £30 a go and use high quality optical glass which through a series of coatings filter the light accordingly to each eye.  The frequencies used add up due to visual latency in each eye to restore the intended colour balance.  The only downside is the light efficiency is terrible.  Only 30% of the light reaches the viewer.  The cinema runs 4k lamps at between 110% to 125% (depending on widescreen or scope) output for 3D while for flat they operate at 70% to 80% which is big difference on the electricity bill.  Our system is somewhat simpler and you won’t need to fork out 60k on a light engine.

You get some pretty neat jobs, you’ll be a projectionist next week!

I get whatever jobs I can.  The work situation here is pretty bad so it may come to that.  I was digging trenches for groundwork last week and installing new toilets.  Putting down block paving this week and moving a green house.  It’s all pretty random.  Looks like I’ll be changing the lamp in the projector for screen 2 today if the phone call I got last night is anything to go by.  So yes, variety if nothing else.

Actually, I meant it would be cool to have a job like that, I certainly wouldn’t mind a job as a projectionist.  You get to play with fancy hardware and watch all the latest stuff for free!

It is not like that these days, sorry to say.  You man the ticket kiosk, then sell the food and drinks, press a button the start the film, restock what you’ve sold, sort out the DVD’s/video games and then when the films is over clear up the auditorium afterwards ready for the next show.  Two screens so there is some overlap.  Being a projectionist is not what it used to be.  What you mean, I’m guessing, is you want to own a cinema?  Long hours in the summer here, Marcus gets in at about 9am and doesn’t get home till about 1am.  The rest of the year it’s pretty dead.  Usually 2pm till 12am.  Wednesday he does psychic bingo to break the monotony.

«Woodlands (blue bell version)» submitted to bryce5.com on 1st April 2004. Still a beautiful image and fit to “anaglyphise”. Great example! If I remember correctly, you had complained at the time that your computer crashed several times because of the trees. Good to see that your patience wasn’t in vain.


EDIT: Here’s the link to the original http://www.bryce5.com/details.php?image_id=42 which is worth to have a look at.

I agree that is a nice image.

@David
Your cinema sounds quite different to the one I use, yours sounds more like a smaller locally run business.  The one I use is one of those large Cineworld cinemas with lots of screens and an extra large screen for the ultra popular stuff.  It’s often packed-out unless it’s something that’s been showing for a while.  If the people there had to do all the different jobs yours do, I doubt they’d be able to cope - lol


But yup, I suppose it’s not quite as I imagine it.  Mind you, I even think standing guard or keeping an eye on things while films are showing would be a nice job to have.  Can’t imagine the pay would be much, but I like the idea of spending the working day in a cinema environment.

Oldie but a goodie.
I found my old Bryce files and am attempting to re-render the scenes to a higher resolution.
It’s been a long time, but got back into the Bryce groove pretty quickly.
I hope to re-up the new animation in a couple weeks…
Edit: OOPS, I thought I was posting in the “Show Us Your Bryce Renders!” thread…
Sorry…
