Things always change for the better by visionary people.
Here are 3 of them who have changed 3-D.
1-Robert Zemeckis who started using Machine Vision Cameras for Motion Capture 3-D in “A Christmas Carol 3-D” back in 2008, now MVC's are used all over the word for MC-3D. Where did he get the idea? www.davidrubio3d.com
2-Brian Gardner who started using Machine Vision Cameras for Stop Motion 3-D capture in “Coraline 3-D” back in 2008. Where did he get the idea? www.davidrubio3d.com
3-Josh Klatt who started using Machine Vision Cameras for Live Action 3-D back in 2009. Where did he get the idea? www.davidrubio3d.com
For those of you that doesn't know him, he is an extraordinary stereographer from NY city and a dear friend of mine. Here is his web site:
For some of you who are not familiar with www.davidrubio3d.com (and since it is offline) you can have a glance of how it looked back in 2009:
Live Action 3-D with Machine Vision Cameras hasn't died just yet, in the contrary it has improved.
Just see these two examples:
People all over the world were always asking me for a more portable solution other than a workstation for recording 3-D with MVC's, here it is NOW.
And things will get even better as time passes. Like more resolution camera heads, with better light sensitivity and dynamic range rivaling film capture. Cheaper and smaller recorders. Larger capacity and cheaper Solid State Drives for media storage. Native Uncompressed Raw support by major Non Linear Editing systems, etc.
When I started my research with MVC's for 3-D capture for cinema & 3D-HDTV applications 5 years ago in the summer of 2006, and then my forum on December 2nd of 2006, I didn't realize how a simple idea could change some many things in 3-D. But it did, and I am happy for that...after all, I wasn't that “crazy” like some people called me at the beginning.
I only wish that my two beautiful boys, David and Alexander Rubio can see one day what their poor PA-PA (who loves 3-D since he was a boy like they are now) started...
MVC's & 3-D...
