ABC of the lenticular 3D printing
Polyakov A.
The aurthor of the article goes deep into the subject of stereo image production explaining the basic notions and terms.


3d dimension of the photograph, Part 1
Polyakov A.
The article explains the mechanism of 3D image production including different methods of stereo shooting as well as the overview of the equipment.


3d dimension of the photograph, Part 2
Polyakov A.
This is Part 2 of the previous artcile. In this article various methods of viewing stereo images are described in detail, among them:  viewing with the stereoscope, paralel and cross-eyed viewing methods, viewing with 3D glasses, glasses-free 3D technology.


Fade and morphing (differences)
Polyakov A.
The article explains the differences between the fade and morphing effects that can be achieved with the help of the Triaxes Morpher software.

Use Cases


Manual depth map creation
Polyakov A.
3D image creation requires information about the scene depth.  If you are working with a stereo image (stereo pair) you can create a depthmap with the help of the special program, for example Triaxes StereoTracer. However, if you want to create a 3D image out of a 2D one, you will have to draw such a depthmap manually. This article will explain how to do that in detail.


The easiest way to create 3D photo (using Google Camera app)
Dubenko M.
The article gives detailed instructions on how to easily create a 3D image using a smartphone with Android 4.4., the Lens Blur mode (Google Camera) and Triaxes StereoTracer.


How to combine 3D and flip
Polyakov A.
This short article explains how to combine the 3D and flip effects in one picture.


Direct UV lenticular printing
Sidash V.
The article shows the details of direct lenticular printing with the help of UV plotters and Triaxes Legend.


Creating lenticular images with motion effect
Polyakov A..
The article describes the process of image creation with the motion effect. The author also investigates why clean-cut transition between frames is not always possible and suggests the solution to the problem.


From Stereo Pair to Lenticular Print
Brown M.
The author of this tutorial describes the process of lenticular image production out of a stereo pair using Triaxes StereoTracer, and also explains how one can change the default settings to get better results.


Creating 3D still life for anaglyph or lenticular viewing
Richards D.
In this tutorial Daniel Richards, Canadian artist, shares his secrets of 3D image creation using a 2D digital photo which was altered into a digital painting. Special attention is drawn to how to control the light and build the composition of the scene while shooting.

Products


What’s new in Triaxes 3DMasterKit 8
A revolutionary-new version of 3DMasterKit that has been edgily waited for is coming out. Let’s enumerate new features in brief and then describe them in detail.


DepthGate for Glasses free video: Advanced Multiview Generation.
Polyakov A.
The article is devoted to Triaxes DepthGate allowing to convert conventional 3D (for watching with glasses) into glasses-free video formats (2D+Z, multiview) intended for different models of autostereoscopic displays. The author demonstrates how the software solves quite a difficult task when video contains transparent objects that are difficult to deal with for conversion algorithms.
