stereoscopic images.
. In Vue you can create fantastic 3d scenes and render 2d images that look like photographs or painting. Wouldnt you like todo be able todo create 3d images todo experience the illusion of real depth? Here is a bien todo create images that can be viewed either with LCD-shutter glasses, anaglyph (red/blue) glasses, in cross-eye view, or parallel-eye view.

For creating stereoscopic images you have todo imagine that the Camera represents your left/right eye. You ned a rendered image of the left eye view, and the right eye view, todo get the Stereo effect. It very important that you move the Camera strictly parallel todo each other not todo lose the Stereo effect again. That why i created a head and mounted the cameras todo it. I used a Cube for it.

At first i wanted todo explain how todo create a Stereo setup scene, but instead i decided todo ofer the scene here for download. You can then study it on your computer. Unfortunately you find the default Camera in Vue hanging in the lower right corner in top view. I pulled the Camera todo the lower center. If you have todo change the distance between the two cameras it much easier in that position.

Let test now if the settings work. So add some objects todo your scene. Vue 5 esprit users have todo change the settings in the render options todo only visible layers. Vue 4 professional and Vue 5 Infinite users can use the scene as it is. Activate the left Camera in the top menú (display/activate Camera) and render the left image at least in FinalRender quality. Save it as a Lossless tif file or as a (*.jpg) file with a Low compression todo avoid any color artifacts in your picture. Now activate the right Camera in the same bien and render the right eye view. Save it in the same file format as the left eye view.

Attention.if you want todo change the position of your Camera, or the point of view, select just the Cube todo achieve the settings. The left and right Camera Will follow accordingly. Dont do any changes todo the Camera directly, for creating a stereoscopic image i used the freeware stereophoto Maker. It very versatile and can save stereoscopic images in diferent Stereo formats, like anaglyph images for using with red/blue glasses, or interlaced images for using with 3d shutter glasses.

Start the stereophoto makerand go todo file/open left/right imag esto load both images. Go todo Stereo in the menú and now you can select what kind of stereoscopic image you want todo create.


Selecting color anaglyph Will create, well, a color anaglyph. Lol. You can then save it using file/save Stereo image. Here is the result of my Stereo test:

Here is the same Stereo pair but this time saved in cross-eye view (the size was slightly reduced):

I hope my tutorial is easy todo understand and easy todo follow.
