My Arduino bumper, with actual prints!

March 23, 2013 | 3D, 3D printing, Arduino, My Projects | By: Mark VandeWettering

Okay, our Replicator 2 went back online this week, and I decided to give printing my Arduino bumper another try. Since the last time, I have revised the program and code a couple of times. I was concerned that the various bits of solder protruding from the bottom of the board would need extra relief […]

Creating an Anaglyph from a Stereograph

November 20, 2009 | 3D | By: Mark VandeWettering

Back in 2005, I wrote a little blog post about creating stereo images with the GIMP along with a screencast. Little did I know that a couple of years later, I’d end up learning far more about stereo imaging when I became the stereo rendering lead for Toy Story and Toy Story 2. This post […]

More Fuji Real 3D W1 experiments (and an anaglyph)

November 5, 2009 | 3D | By: Mark VandeWettering

Well, I’ve tinkered around a bit more, and discovered a few things: the camera doesn’t actually do very much to align images. In fact, there is a fairly significant vertical misalignment between the two camera (I’m guessing around the order of a dozen pixels) which doesn’t really hurt things too bad, but which annoy me […]

Fujifilm Real 3D W1 Camera

November 4, 2009 | 3D | By: Mark VandeWettering

Today we got an interesting new toy in the lab, a Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W1. It’s a very cute little camera which you can think of as being the modern day equivalent of the old Nimslo 3D cameras. It has two lenses, and can acquire both 3D and regular 2D images, which it displays […]

Real-Time Rendering · SIGGRAPH 2009 Course Pages

October 5, 2009 | 3D, Computer Graphics | By: Mark VandeWettering

I didn’t make it to this year’s SIGGRAPH, but I still try to keep up on my reading. There are several nice courses that occurred, and the guys over at the Real-Time Rendering blog were nice enough to link ’em for us. Enjoy: Real-Time Rendering · SIGGRAPH 2009 Course Pages

‘Toy’ Stories in 3-D – Buzz Lightyear Finds a Dimension

October 2, 2009 | 3D, Pixar Animation Studios | By: Mark VandeWettering

Well, today’s the day. For about the last year, I’ve been working away deep within the halls of Pixar Animation as part of a fantastic crew, and today (and for the next two weeks) you all can see the result of our efforts: the conversion of the original Toy Story and Toy Story 2 into […]

YouTube Blog: Now in 3D

July 29, 2009 | 3D | By: Mark VandeWettering

Youtube has apparently now got support for 3D Video. Neat! Read about it below, and expect to see a test video of mine over the next few days. YouTube Blog: Now in 3D: Join the Experiment With Us! Addendum: I tried embedding this 3D video two different ways, but without good results. Witness. Annoying. httpv://
