Needs some explanation *Kind of a noob question*

#1bigeyes22170Posted 6/16/2010 7:56:29 AM
Could someone explain to me why the 3D projections can't be captured on a camera? I know that it can't pop out of the screen you are watching the video from, but shouldn't we be able to see the images popping out of the DS's screen, since the image is already focused without the need for glasses?

Again, sorry if this is a noob question, I was just confused/interested in why this isn't possible.

Thanks!

3D is made by your brain using two "cameras" (eyes), and putting the two 2d images together. Cameras have only one eye.

Each eye is seeing a different image giving the illusion of 3D, I think.

With your theory, recording anything with two cameras and combining the footage would result in 3D without glasses.

You can't capture a 3D image because the 3D is a trick of the light, it has to be moving to look 3D (hence why holographic cards don't look cool unless moving).
I camera image is basically broken light(not moving), and thus, the 3D can't really show up

Well, I would imagine because it captures only 1 image, which ruins the 3D effect.

What might be able to capture the effect would be two cameras recording it, set apart at eye distance. Then put them together. That might convey the 3D effect, though I'm not 100% positive.

Excitement!

what would be 3DTV and 3D cinemas for, then? Why would you need glasses in the first place when you can record anything with two cameras and combine the footage? I don't think it works that way.

It would. If each was set-up on a separate screen and each eye sees one screen. Kind of like the Virtual boy, but not as craptastic.

Each eye has to get a different image and your brain combines them. That's how 3D works.

When you take a picture of the 3DS screen, you either get what one eye would see or a blurry mess of both images overlapping.
