Africa 3D-Stereogram by 3Dimka Africa 3D-Stereogram by 3Dimka
When I found these free models of African animals, I couldn't stand to make a 3D Stereogram of them. Though it took quite long to align textures I really enjoy the result.

I used couple more tricks that hard to notice but they really helped to encode pretty complex 3D scene into a 2D image. One is texturing the ground and monoscopic areas (It has always been a problem in my previous works). The second one is using "morphing" texture which allowed me to show more details on the left and right objects. Morphing texture makes small retinal revelry effect, however it instantly disappears as soon as you dive into a 3D scene.

Tell me if you had difficulties viewing this work, I really need to know how the Morphing Texture affects on depth reception.

Zebra's ears won't merge. Otherwise, everything else is fine.

Beautiful work you have here!
My eyes aren't connected, so I can move them independently- and I DON'T mean crossing my eyes, it's really quite the opposite- I can move one eye left and the other right, essentially, seeing two scenes right on top of each other. Because of this, I can almost instantly, in about 1 and a half seconds, see these stereogram images. It's incredible really. My point is, I can perceive this image and keep a very clear view of it. It's brilliant, very well put together. Fantastic job.

This is a very cool trick you can do with your eyes! I can't move my eyes separttly no matter how hard I try.

They're not connected. it's some sort of medical thing. I wouldn't recommend trying it, i was told it can be unhealthy :P

eyes are not physically connected. Brain controls eye muscles to move synchronously. There's nothing unhealthy to move them separately if you can.

Wow, I've only taken stereograms with my camera, but you're making them. The colors and distance flash around a bit when I look at it, but other than that, very nice book-worthy job. My eyes aren't fixed, so this was easy even at the huge size to do parallel vision.

thanks, I also take 3D photographs. This work has some issues due to number of hidden objects, maybe I will re-render it one day with my new software.

it took me 10 years so you you are willing to spend so long....
well it's much easier nowadays with all 3D software. I use my software which you can download from my gallery, examples are included - Stereogram Lab

I do have a tiny nitpick though...
the zebras front feet are not fully on hte ground!

but I can't complain it all looks so good anyway :)

Thanks. Since I used free models and don't have permission from autors I don't think I can publish this stereogram for printing. But what stops you to download the image and print it by yourself? LOL :)

Haha, true... but something poster-size with these images would be AWESOME.

Posters need special edition with smaller pattern period. Otherwise you can't diverge your eyes so wide and won't be able to fuse the 3D image. I never made posters, don't have a printer I can print them with.

There was a lot of motion and difficulty focusing around the legs but then once the 3-D clicked in, I have to say I am really impressed by the depth of your zebra.

Thanks `Senecal, in 3D I often have to compromise between recognazibility and comfortable viewing.

I had no problem viewing. This is your richest scene yet. Great breadth and depth. (FYI my contacts are adjusted "monovision": left-reading, right-distance. I really must put my nose close to begin to see, then I can back away as far as I want without loosing the depth effect.) :eyepopping:

Thanks Mark,
What do you mean by "monovision"? I've never heard about it.
I'm glad you were able to see 3D anyway ;)
Reply
:iconcrossbrace:
crossbrace Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2006
Monovision is simply setting the focal range of each eye differently, thus avoiding the need for reading glasses. I had been worried that I would have to give up enjoying 3d art such as yours, but not so!

3Dimka Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2006
Now I'm totally confused! Who would set a different focal range for each eye? Is that for a purpose or is it a kind of vision problem? I think I'm just infamiliar with english terms ;)

I am sorry to have made this confusing (when it is really sort of simple and uninteresting). When one gets older, as I have, one's eyes no longer have the ability to focus over the total depth of field. When work or sports require a constant change of field depth, it is inconvenient to be constantly putting on and removing reading glasses. By correcting one eye for close work and the other for distance with contact lenses, one can avoid needing to use reading glasses for close work. If one's eyes are not too bad, one apparently can maintain enough binocular vision to enjoy great stereographs such as yours. (It also allows me to look out to see the trout and then look close to tie on the correct fly without removing my polaroid sunglasses.)

Now I got it. Interesting solution, but only one eye sees in focus. This is not a big restriction for binocular vision, often I take stereophotographs and one of two cameras happens to shot out of focus. Amazingly stereophotographs still works an it's not that blurry.
