Focal Press 9780240814612 overview

  • 1Description

3D TV and 3D Cinema, available from Focal Press, helps you master the unique technical requirements of shooting stereoscopic 3D for both television and the big screen. The book covers the complex hardware and software involved in producing left-eye/right-eye content, focusing on rig design and the requirements of devising a successful unit to keep your S3D production on schedule and on budget.

The book devotes a section to the specific requirements of 3D cinema, and also features sections on 3D conversion, keying, and CG processes. Author Bernard Mendiburu also analyzes traditional elements of filmmaking from a stereoscopic perspective, including staging, lighting, set dressing, framing, and camera movement techniques. Bringing home the theory, the book presents examples of 3D TV and cinema productions for a practical view of the technology as it's applied in the real world.

Fully Illustrated
Shooting theory, rig design, and best practices for stereoscopic 3D cinematography are fully illustrated
Contributions from Top Stereographers
The book features contribution from industry experts Steve Schklair, CEO & founder of 3D production company 3ality Digital, as well as Yves Pupulin, CEO of French stereoscopic 3D equipment house Binocole, which also has developed software for S3D post-production
