Hey, if James Cameron can do it, so can we. What better subject to view in three dimensions than an airshow? So we asked our friends at LightSpeedMedia to capture airshow scenes with the 3D camera they’ve developed. Then we asked Vision III Imagery to process the photographs so you can see them in 3D without wearing special glasses.
Vision III’s process creates the illusion of depth by digitally combining the stereoscopic images and rapidly switching back and forth between them. Too much jiggle? Hit the off button. The airplanes are also cool in two dimensions.
