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!
Just something I wrote for AnimationSa.org as an Opinion Piece on Stereoscopy… thought I would put a copy up on my blog too. I have a confession.

Doors have been opened allowing me to explore areas of 3D & Computing Technology that I have always longed to explore yet never had […]
I was recently asked to be a Guest Lecturer at the Animation School in Cape Town as they were running a Stereoscopic Master Class. The classes were attended by Industry Professionals along with the 3rd Year students of the Animation School. It is great to see Stereoscopic being taught in colleges as I truly believe […]
