This is adequate for a character reading a billboard. 18 Background and foreground are both in the comfort zone, but too far away from each other to be fused using the same eye convergence. This is adequate for a character standing in front of a building. Key Points ■ ■ ■ ■ The 3D reconstruction of the surrounding world occurs in the visual cortex at the back of the brain This reconstruction is based on visual stimuli and previous knowledge of the world Monoscopic depth cues are among the most powerful visual cues used in 3D reconstruction Still picture monoscopic depth cues include ■ Occlusions ■ Atmospheric effects ■ Shadows ■ Illumination 23 24 3D Movie Making ■ ■ ■ ■ Motion picture monoscopic depth cues include ■ Parallax induced by subject motion ■ Parallax induced by point-of-view motion ■ Objects apparent and relative speed Binocular vision consists of combining the images of our two eyes ■ Some species use it only to widen their visual field ■ Some species use it to generate depth perception, in a process called stereopsis ■ Stereopsis is only one of the many ways we reconstruct 3D ■ Stereoscopic imaging simulates 3D by combining a pair of 2D images ■ Achieving this is called fusing the images Stereoscopic depth cues includes ■ Parallaxes ■ Shape change Some inaccurate depth cues come from our proprioception ■ Convergence distance is a binocular proprioception ■ Accommodation, or focus distance, is a monocular proprioception STEREOSCOPIC VISION GONE WRONG There are some circumstances where stereoscopic vision is impossible.

MATCHING GEOMETRY In order to generate comfortable 3D, the two cameras have to be in a perfectly controlled relative position. Basically, one camera should be the reference and the second should only be a lateral translation of the first one, along the image plane width, with a possible rotation along the vertical axis. Any other discrepancy in relative position will generate inappropriate retinal disparities and damage the 3D effect. Most 3D rigs keep the cameras tightly in the correct positions, or allow for only appropriate movements.

Stereoscopic Vision and 3D Cinematography CHAPTER 2 Bad 3D: causes and effects The most common source of stereo blindness in a theater is bad stereoscopy, and it affects the remaining 85 to 97 percent of the population that would otherwise see depth perfectly. Almost everything that can go wrong in a 2D picture will eventually destroy the 3D effect. Image geometry, colorimetric, and photographic treatments are likely to damage depth perception. Mistakes in postproduction, in the projection booth, or even in the use of 3D glasses can prevent stereopsis.
