Easy making 3D
with a degital camera.
In this page, I'd like to explain about how to make your 3D image (Anaglyph) with one digital camera (one film camera and image-scanner are OK).
I think that a digital camera is the good equipment to make 3D image easy. And anaglyph image is good method to display 3D image, because it is easy to see in 3D with red-blue glasses.
Let's look for a stationary subject such as flower, tree, doll, etc.
To make 3D image, you must take two photographs from left and right position. At first let's take a left photo. When you take it, your camera must be kept horizontal level.
After taking a left photo, you have to move a little to right. It is about 1/30 of the distance between the camera and the subject.
Take a right photo.
When you take it, your camera must be kept horizontal level.
Save the photo images into your computer(PC) from your camera.
Download the software 'Anaglyph Maker' and install it into your computer(PC).
Download from here.
Execute the software 'Anaglyph Maker'.
Push button 'Load Left Image' to load the left photo image you took.
Push button 'Load Right Image' to load the right photo image you took.
NOTICE: Anaglyph Maker can load only 24bit color image. If your images are mono color or 256color images, you have to change them 24bit color mode by using any photo edit software.
After loading the images, push 'Make 3D image' button to make an anaglyph image. The vertical position of the images can be adjusted with the button of U or D. The horizontal position of the images can be adjusted with the button of L or R.
The horizontal position of images relates to the depth of 3D image (stereo window). If you have red-blue glasses, you can control it real time.
Completed anaglyph image.
Finally, save the anaglyph image into your computer.
You will be able to recognize the image in 3D with red-blue glasses.
Let's try it.
