Use Cases

Triaxes StereoTracer program for Looking Glass Holographic displays
Polyakov A.
The article decribes different ways to create a 3D photo for viewing on Looking Glass holographic displays with the help of Triaxes StereoTracer.  

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.

Using 3D MPO stereo pair to create glasses-free 3D lenticular photo
Polyakov A.
The article explains in brief how to create a 3D lenticular photo that can be watched without special glasses out of a stereo pair using Triaxes StereoTracer. 

Create Your Own Lenticular 3D Prints
Smith M.
The author of the article shares his experience in home production of 3D lenticular pictures and gives advice on how to avoid cruical mistakes.

Images with zoom effect (scaling)
Polyakov A., Sidash V.
This short note describes 2 methods of image creation with the zoom effect (scaling) using 3DMasterKit or 3DMasterKit and a third-party graphics editor.

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 flip background and 3D objects
Polyakov A.
This short article explains how to combine the 3D and flip effects in one picture. In this example the author shows how to place 3D objects over the flip background.

StereoTracer: Fine tuning of the rendering settings
Polyakov A.
The tutorial shows how to convert a stereo pair to 3D using different rendering settings. The author draws special attention to generation parameters and explains how these parameters influence the final result.

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.

2D-3D conversion with Triaxes 3DMasterKit
Polyakov A.
The tutorial explains in detail how to convert 2D image to 3D with the help of Triaxes 3DMasterKit v.10 and how to eliminate flaws that might occur in the process of conversion.

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.


What's new in Triaxes StereoTracer 8
Polyakov A.
