Hollywood goes 3D! sign up for the revolution with this primer to the entire crucial abilities for dwell motion 3D, from preproduction via distribution.
3D notion and technology is gifted in an obtainable method that offers the foundations of Stereoscopic imaginative and prescient you want to make the transition from the second global. instruments of the exchange are enumerated with an eye fixed on present constraints and what's coming down the pike to soft the best way. step by step directions element how 3D techniques have an effect on each level of the construction together with screenwriting, paintings path, precept images, enhancing, visible results and distribution.
The better half DVD contains an array of second and 3D photographs that display techniques and strategies, 3D motion picture shorts that show off substitute suggestions, After results venture documents to discover and manage for influence, and a source record of software program instruments and tutorials that display techniques.

Книга является отличным справочным пособием для всех кого интересует photorealistic rendering. В книге рассмотрено большое количество новых алгоритмов с реализацией на мета-языке (например дается subsurface scattering). Стоит отметить что Matt Pharr является редактором серии GPU gemstones от NVIDIA!
P. S. Спешу предупредить, что данный файл является рабочим вариантом книги и здесь текст (. .. а рисунки тем паче) представлен в начальном редакционном виде (общее число страниц не совпадает финальным вариантом, ИМХО за счет отсутствия части рисунков и более плотной верстки).
P. P. S. Данный файл был любезно предоставлен мне из торрентовской сети Dimitry N. за что ему огромное спасибо. Ежели кто найдет полную версию книги - сообщите, также ищу полные версии GPU gemstones 1,2.

The camera bulkiness, postproduction complexity, and exhibition requirements were taken care of once and for all at the camera lens. Why could it not bring 3D to full fruition? Three reasons: one design ﬂaw and two missing links. First, you need the camera to be bulky to artistically accommodate any scene inside a 3D movie. Whether it be a super-wide interocular distance for hyper stereo, or a beam-splitter conﬁguration with a giant mirror and short wide angle lens, good 3D does not come from a small camera.
And remember, 3D can be among the hardest things to ﬁx in post. As we’ll see, 3D quality is the result of end-to-end quality assessment all along the production process. If 3D was not properly handled at any given point, there’s no way it can be ﬁxed later for a reasonable price. “We’ll ﬁx it in post” is likely the single most expensive phrase ever pronounced in Hollywood (besides “They won’t sue us”). In 3D, this is a dead end, and some movies would have needed to be ﬁxed in post from end to end.
Watching 3D is not a sport, but it involves muscular activity and reﬂexes. Practicing it is getting better at it. You’ll soon ﬁnd yourself much quicker at fusing 3D images. This has a drawback and an advantage. The drawback is you will be tempted to go into a strong and dynamic 3D that you enjoy, but your audience may have trouble following you. The advantage is you can teach yourself to be much more efﬁcient at catching 3D disparities and errors. As a rule, give the artists free access to 3D displays, to 3D dailies in the theater.
