VSC Meeting, March 2022
Sunday, March 6 2022 at 2:00 pm EST / 7:00 pm GMT / 8:00 pm CET
In our next meeting we are going to have presentations about the Looking Glass Portrait, a new display which allows us to easily create digital lenticular images as well as some insights on the magic of Wiggle GIFs. And we have something new: In-Depth Socializing. Join us to discover new 3D trends and our community!
As you might have noticed we made some changes on our website and introduced some new URLs. Even though we will tell you all about it during the meeting, please check the meeting info at the end of this newsletter. But don’t worry, the old links still work.
Shake it up with 3D Wiggles
Jassimine Dixon, a fellow 3D enthusiast, stereo photographer, and stereogram creator, is enchanted by the movement and atmosphere of Wiggle GIFs shot on 35mm film. Wiggle GIFs are composed of 2 or more stereoscopic photos stitched together to make a short video or GIF. Lately, Jassimine has been tinkering with animation in her moving photos. Her presentation will include some of her Wiggle GIFs, a brief overview of her process, and a look at her new wiggles with hand-drawn animated crystals.
Into the Looking Glass
A new, affordable display allows us to easily create 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 create images for the display, and how to display them using the company’s software and other free tools. Beyond the Looking Glass, many of the techniques and concepts discussed can be applied to the creation of traditional lenticular images and stereo pairs.
The advantage of a virtual community is that we can gather online, no matter where we’re from. But we don’t have the chance to socialize in person. That’s why we decided to start a new section called „In-Depth Socializing“ to get to know each other a bit better.
Anybody who feels up to it is invited to introduce themselves: When and how did you encounter stereoscopy? What are you most interested in? Taking photos, collecting or discovering new 3D trends? But also: What do you do besides stereoscopy? Who is the person behind the stereo camera?
We’ll prepare a few easy ice breakers to start with and are looking forward to your stories.
