3D Disneyland photo made with one iPhone 4

Save this image to your iPhone’s Photos app, then view it in landscape mode from that app. Shift the focus point of your eyes until a 3D image appears in the middle (ignoring the left and right images surrounding it).

If you dont have an iphone you could try looking at it on your computer screen. The trickiest part is getting your head the right distance from the screen then getting your eyes to focus on it correctly (since there are no 3D glasses involved).

Here’s how it was done: Two frames were taken from a movie I shot at Disneyland on my iPhone 4 while riding on a train facing to the side of the train. Then I put these frames side by side using Photoshop and saved it as one image. The movement of the train while holding the iPhone 4 pretty motionless while recording provides the 3D effect. This technique works as long as people in the shot don’t move too much (or at all).

Next time I’ll pick two frames without something like that scalloped awning on top (which didn’t change position in relation to the camera).

And I might try recording a movie on my iPhone 4 and my wife’s iPhone 4, holding them both side by side. Then in After Effects I could synch the two movies and put them side by side and see if a 3D movie is possible!

    A big tip of the mouse-eared hat to HBG2 at the LongForgottenHauntedMansion blogspot for the tip on how to create a 3D image from a movie!

About the Disney Echo

This website is not affiliated with any part of The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Echo at DisneyEcho.emuck.com is your interactive online magazine to discover new wonders and share magical Disney memories.

The display on this page is set up to show the posts in reverse chronological order of when they were posted originally, so if you want to read the reports from the beginning, go to the last post on the last page and work forward. The first entry about the Koster family's July 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by clicking here and the first entry about their Easter 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by selecting this link.

That link goes to the very first travel-related article on this website: Welcome to our Trip Report.

The entry made after that first one is found after clicking the link named "Our Vacation Plans At-A-Glance" and that link is found above and below the first entry.

The third entry is similarly found after clicking the link above and below the second one, where the link is named "Packing Up"

One can read all the travel-related entries in the order they were posted by going to the next entry and the next entry the same way. Otherwise, this website defaults to displaying the most-recently-posted entries followed by older entries below it on the page as well as on the pages after it.
