2X - Creating Galleries in VR & Stereocards

National Stereoscopic Association Convention for 3D Photography


Two Different Workshops

1 - Making a Simple Stereocard

This workshop will show how to make a simple stereocard using a minimum of tools and materials you can buy at any local big-box store. We will show you how easy it can be to produce a stereo image that can be viewed with a wide range of viewers manufactured as far back as 1859 or as recently as today.

Presented by Steve and Suzanne Hughes

2 - Creating Stereoscopic Galleries in VR

Virtual Reality headsets such as the Oculus Quest have put high quality digital stereo viewers into the hands of millions of potential new fans of your 3D work. This workshop will demonstrate how to use the Unity platform to present Stereoscopic and immersive photography and artwork in VR platforms such as Altspace VR, or in dedicated apps. While this is too complex to thoroughly cover in 30 minutes, the tools and techniques required will be demonstrated, and templates and links for further study will be provided.

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.
