Stereoscopy In Photoshop

I posted earlier about my stereoscopic technique for Robots! in 3D which utilized Photoshop, a tcl script and Apple Shake to programatically make a stereoscopic composition. Last night I tried to take shake and tcl out of the picture and do the 3D for the latest page for Robots! in 3D completely in Photoshop. The video above is a time lapse of me doing it (make sure you watch it in 3D to get the most of it) and jump the link for the details.


Adding the 3rd D


Now that you know how 3D works by reading the primer, I wanted to write a post about the technique we use to create the 3D images for Robots! in 3D. Click the jump to geek out over all the technical details of how we add the 3rd to Robots!

3D is all the rage today with more and more media going the way of 3D. Ironically what is currently being advertised as new cool technology has been around since the mid 19th century. While back then they may have not had high-performance computers to generate images for 3D consumption they both rely on the concept of stereoscopy.
