2X - 3D Moviemaking & Looking Glass Formatting

National Stereoscopic Association Convention for 3D Photography


Two Different Workshops:

1 - Looking Glass Display Image Creation

A new, affordable light field display allows us to easily create, essentially, digital lenticular images in our own homes. We'll discuss how to bring stereoscopic content into the Looking Glass Factory's Looking Glass Portrait. We'll quickly cover how to use software provided by the company, and look at other free tools such as many options in StereoPhoto Maker and Masuji Suto's web tools. We'll also discuss how to create stereo videos using the series photographs taken for use in the Looking Glass. You do not need to own a Looking Glass to attend; many of the techniques and concepts discussed can be used for creation of traditional lenticular images or stereo pairs.

Presented by Dave Comeau

2 - 3D Moviemaking with Magix

This workshop is a beginner’s guide to the basic techniques of making 3D videos. It will cover making shows using still images and how to link twin rig film clips or two independent movie cameras.

3D-Con (https://3d-con.com/) is the annual convention of the National Stereoscopic Association (NSA). It is for photographers and collectors of stereo (3D) images and anyone interested in 3D imaging including 3D movies and Virtual Reality. It will be held August 12-15, 2021

PLEASE NOTE that we are limited to posting 3 main events per day, but we have many more as seen in the “all” tab, and in the “3D (Stereoscopic) Photography” channel

The convention has programming for the collector as well as the photographer. Among the highlights are the 3D Theater, Workshops, virtual Art Gallery, Guest and Keynote Speakers and Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings. There will also be social gatherings on Zoom and other online forums. A highlight will be a symposium on the history of stereoscopic photography.

It is free of charge, but we do accept donations. With a paid registration you will receive a package that includes a commemorative Viewmaster type reel and several types of viewers and glasses you will need to view images presented during the convention.

The 3D-Con website will have a calendar of events and will be updated regularly. Facebook users are encouraged to join the 3D-Con group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/3dcon). There will be ongoing updates and opportunities to connect with other attendees. There will also be spontaneous workshops or social live streams. The group is currently open and may be joined anytime.
