We’ve seen 3d movies, and we know the basic principal – Stereo Picture – Capture video with two cameras few centimeters apart, and interpolate them to get 3D picture.
Ever wondered what makes IMAX convert normal 2d movies shot with a 2d camera, come alive in 3d ?
“The first step is masking out objects in the scene so that we can turn those objects 3-D,” says IMAX’s Eric Robinson as he shows off the software. “The next step is, re-create the scene in 3-D so that we can generate depth information from that. Our proprietary render system generates a new image, which is offset from the original.”
Thanks to the video at wired, it’s easy to understand.
That should clear all your doubts.
