I am going to be shooting a lo budget feature on 3D HD with a home made double EX3 rig and beamsplitter. Any suggestions or tips out there for things to worry about, or problems someone has experienced dealing with a similar capture medium.
make sure you can adjust the cameras position and rotation on all axis. check the stereo result prior to shoot - your cameras might be parallel but the chips can be offset, damaging the result.
make sure you adjust for the refraction displacement of the mirror.
Watch your pan speed, its not very forgiving in stereo. reduce the stereo for fast motion *and* reduce your shutter speed. don't let it strobe. Compose with it - don't gimmick the stereo...
bring two laser pointers...
don't use f/30 if you're displaying on a big screen...
if in doubt use less stereo - if you can't reshoot later then use less. a broken stereo shot will damage the rest of your film due to the eyestrain in the audience (once the eyes are strained, they won't recover for the rest of the film)
