In Vue you can create fantastic 3D scenes and render 2D images that look like photographs or paintings. Wouldn't you like to be able to create 3D images to experience the illusion of real depth? Here is a way to create images that can be viewed either with LCD-shutter glasses, anaglyph (red/blue) glasses, in cross-eye view, or parallel-eye
For creating stereoscopic images you have to imagine that the camera represents your left/right eye. You need a rendered image of the left eye view, and the right eye view to get the stereo effect. It's very important that you move the camera strictly parallel to each other not to lose the stereo effect again. That's why I created a "head" and mounted the cameras to it. I used a cube for it.
At first I wanted to explain how to create a Stereo Setup scene, but
instead I decided to offer the scene here
for download. You can then study it on your computer.
Let's test now if the settings work. So add some objects to your scene.
Activate the left camera
in the top menu (Display/Activate
Camera...) and render
the left image at least in Final render quality. Save it as a lossless TIFF file or as a JPG file with a low
compression to avoid any color artifacts in your picture. Now activate the right camera the same way and render the right eye view.
Save it in the same file format as the left eye view.
you want to change the position of your camera, or the point of view,
select just the cube to achieve the settings. The left and right camera
will follow accordingly. Don't do any
changes to the camera directly!!!
For creating a stereoscopic image I used the freeware StereoPhoto
Maker. It's very versatile and can save stereoscopic images in
different stereo formats, like anaglyph images for using with red/blue
glasses, or interlaced images for using with 3D shutter glasses.
and go to File/Open Left/Right images
to load both images. Go to Stereo
in the menu and now you can select what
kind of stereoscopic image you want to create.
