FSM is committed to the world of Stereoscopic 3D (S3D) with productions already completed in music, commercials and broadcast design. When we shoot normally we use one camera, one lens and can't convey a true spatial perception of depth. It's a flat picture.
S3D is created using two cameras simultaneously recording the same subject. In simple terms each camera represents the human eye. By taking two cameras and mounting them on a common chassis or rig you are now imitating the human eyes. And that creates an image which has true depth or 3D.
When these images are played back or projected and viewed with 3D glasses they are fused by the brain into a single image with the appearance of depth.

The latest technology uses digital projection or 3D LCD monitors with either passive polarized glasses or active shutter glasses. 3D can also be displayed using the older and less appealing anaglyph glasses that are typically red-cyan. Passive or active create a far more successful 3D experience and are now more common than the older style anaglyph. Anaglyphs only advantage is there is no need for special monitoring or screens - it can work with any type of display, for instance like viewing the movies above, or YouTube.
S3D is shot using data or HD based cameras because the organic nature of film and film processing cannot guarantee perfect alignment between two film cameras. RED, SI-2K, Phantom and various HD cameras are commonly used with more available all the time. For more information or a demo, please call 612 8966 5000 or email S3D@fsm.com.au
