So I recently began working with Natron the Opensource Compositor, so far its been a relatively simple cross over from Nuke. It does a few things differently and has a few nodes missing, one of which is the Edge Blur. I use the edge blur a lot, so obviously I had to recreate it for […]
Alot of people are oblivious to the importance of timecode on large scale productions. Editing software now has become pretty powerful, and so editors often work from the highres video sequence, which hides a few timecode/referencing steps from them. Animated films complicate this process due to the fact that each shot is created one by […]
This is just a collection of useful grouped nuke node’s that I have created. I could have saved them out as .gizmo files (and maybe I will at some point) but to keep it simple you can just copy and paste the code from this blog directly into your .nk script. So what do I […]
Thought I would put the trailers from both the Stereoscopic Films I have worked on, into one place. I have also included some history below each film. Adventures in Zambezia (2012) The first stereoscopic animated feature film in South Africa and so my brief from the director & producers was to be gentle, no extreme […]
A few months ago I wrote a post about Stereoscopic Depth Compression, the fact that our binocular vision and ability to judge depth reduces over distance. This phenomenon happens in real life too, and is not restricted to 3D Cinema, although in cinema it can often be exaggerated by using smaller interaxial settings. Due to […]
Finally able to show some the of amazing work being produced here at Triggerfish on our second feature film ‘Khumba’. The images were released on the Kunjanimation website earlier this month and now its time to share the love!
Perceived Depth This post was originally planned to be about the setup and use of Multi Stereo Camera Rigs, but as I began to type I realised I needed to fully explain Stereo Depth Compression. The reason we resort to MultiRigs in the first place! The fundamental nature of human stereo vision only allows us […]
Earlier this week I finally managed to see Madagascar 3… I arrived at the cinema with my RealD polarised glasses excited to see the magical work of Phil McNally! Sterkinekor and NuMetero here in South Africa encourage users to recycle and re-use their stereo glasses, and I think it is great! I am all for […]
