New Gallery Category: Stereoscopy

Wed Feb 15, 2012, 8:20 PM by Cymae:iconcymae:

Great News Everyone!



We have a very shiny brand spanking new...

Stereoscopy Category!


Click here to submit some stereo art


Now all you Stereoscopic 3D fans (that's the 3D that pops in/out of the screen, not the computer animation one) can submit and browse stereo work from one cohesive category!

Confused? Here’s a quick FAQ:


What is Stereoscopy?


Stereoscopy, commonly known as '3-D' is a method of creating an image which creates an illusion of depth. This works by showing a slightly offset picture to your left eye than your right eye, making things appear further forward or back into the picture!

The new category covers any stereo viewing methods including:
:bulletgreen: Anaglyph
:bulletgreen: Wiggle (A pair of stereo images which are alternated quickly to give the feeling of depth)
:bulletgreen: Cross-eyed/Side by Side (here's a great tutorial to help you see them)
:bulletgreen: Autostereogram (Like Magic Eye)
:bulletgreen: Etc. (This includes any other method of displaying a stereo image)

Find out more on Wikipedia's Stereoscopy article


Why not just call it 3D?


We already have a 3-Dimensional Art gallery. This is for art created in a computer program which uses X, Y and Z coordinates. Stereoscopy can be photography, drawings, sculpture, anything as long as it somehow offers a different image to each eye in order to create something with the illusion of depth. Although it's commonly reffered to as 3-D too, calling it that would just get confusing.


Who manages the Stereo gallery?


Cymae is the community volunteer for the stereo gallery. Any questions you have can be directed to her. Once the gallery starts filling up a bit, you can also suggest Daily Deviations from the stereo gallery to her. She'll also be running contests, writing articles and making tutorials related to the stereo gallery.


Why are there no sub-categories?


This is an exciting one. We are going to have categories in a few weeks, and it's up to the community to let us know what sub-categories you like.

You can send Cymae a note explaining how you think the sub-categories for stereo should be arranged.

The two most thoughtful answers will receive a 6 month Premium Membership each, and best of all your suggestions could form the brand new category structure!


I like it! How do I make stereo art?



Assuming you're not blind from all those examples, here's a few links to tutorials for making your own, we'll have some custom DeviantArt ones soon:

A small tutorial on creating an anaglyph image
stereo.gsfc.nasa.gov/classroom…

A freeware program that makes 3D images for you:
www.stereoeye.jp/software/inde…


Why is this not in the __________ gallery?


Stereoscopy is really a unique method of displaying an image. It's up to each artist to decide where to put it and which category it fits under best. Because stereo images are very distinct and specific, and there's a growing community for them, they now have their own category.

Can you show me some examples?


Sure, here's a few great stereo images on DeviantArt:

Anaglyph:
Grid Wave S3D by Ni0n Captain EO Hooter Anaglyph by PJVFX

Wiggle:
Samaritan High Priest Wiggle by clicksypics stereo quake at aphaia by kumimonster

Side by Side:

Today technical devices for HIGH-GRADE viewing of three-dimensional images are already created.
It 3D cinema(theaters), 3D TVs and monitors, games consoles (for example, Nintendo 3DS).
There are formats for 3D content which read 3D TV set, game consoles, 3D players.
These means have given a new push for stereoscopy development.
Now leading world manufacturers actively advance 3Д devices in the market.
Small prevalence of these devices is the phenomenon temporal.
But in them the future.

Anaglyph, cross-eyed and other - are unpromising.
These methods of viewing are not pleasant to the mass spectator.

Therefore I consider that it is necessary to create a subcategory in which stereoimages will be presented
in the modern formats.
For example format MPO: [link]
It support the majority 3D TVs (SMART 3D TVs),games console Nintendo 3DS.
It is very desirable, that SMART 3D TV had communication with DeviantArt (Stereoscopy).

Creation of qualitative stereoimages demands the considerable efforts and expenses.
That Stereoscopy developed and involved professionals, it is desirable to create
"Stereoscopy 3D Shop" (After all exists Prints Shop).
Here owners SMART 3D TVs could download qualitative three-dimensional images, paying small money.

Original техт:

Сегодня уже созданы технические устройства для ПОЛНОЦЕННОГО просмотра стереоскопических изображений.
Это 3D кинотеатры, 3D телевизоры и мониторы, игровые приставки (например, Nintendo 3DS).
Существуют форматы для 3D контента, которые читают 3D телевизоры, игровые приставки, 3D плееры.
Малая распространённость этих устройств - это явление временное.
Но в них будущее.

Сейчас ведущие мировые производители активно продвигают 3D устройства на рынке.
Именно эти технические средства дали новый толчок для развития стереоскопии.
Анаглиф, cross-eyed и прочее - бесперспективны.
Массовому зрителю эти методы просмотра НЕ НРАВЯТСЯ.

Поэтому я считаю, что необходимо создать подкатегорию, в которой стереоизображения будут представлены в современных форматах.
Например формат MPO: [link]
Его поддерживают большинство 3D TV (SMART 3D TV ),игровая консоль Nintendo 3DS.
Очень желательно, чтобы SMART 3D TV имели связь с DeviantArt (Stereoscopy).

Создание качественных стереоизображений требует значительных усилий и затрат.
Чтобы Стереоскопия развивалась и привлекала профессионалов, желательно создать
"Stereoscopy трехмерный Магазин" (В конце концов существует Магазин Печатных изданий).
Здесь владельцы SMART 3D TVs могли бы скачать качественные стереоскопические изображения за небольшую плату.

Very excited about this new Category.

Quick question for all: Would "Chroma Depth" images also be considered in this Category?

Background & More Info: I've been working with "Chroma Depth" colors for a while now. Most people are familiar with the popular "Crayola 3D Art" products, which provide glasses that enhance the ChromaDepth effect, along with markers/crayons/chalks that suite the palette. Red comes towards you and blue goes backwards into the image. I have found that most people can see the effect without the glasses if the color contrast is strong enough.
Developer: [link]
Wikipedia: [link]
Personal art that demonstrates this technique: [link] and [link]

Please let me know if, in your opinions, this would be valid for a "Miscellaneous" Stereoscopy categorization.

Thanks!

Firstly, great idea, particularly for people submitting pictures of sculptures and other physical objects, or 3D renderings.

Categorising by 3D technique seems like it would fragment the stereoscopy gallery, and IMHO will result in people missing out on seeing works because they can't cross their eyes the right way (I long ago gave up trying to see autostereograms) or because they don't have red/blue glasses. Unlike other dA categories, the technique used in stereo pictures is less about the artist's choice of medium and more about overcoming the technical limitation of most monitors only displaying flat images.

It may be technically challenging, but ultimately a win for everyone if you allowed the submission of left/right image pairs and allow the viewer to pick their preferred viewing method (ie make a computer deal with technical issues and free the artist to make their art). If the artist wants it to be viewed using a particular technique then that should be their prerogative, but personally I prefer more people being able to view my deviations than less. (You could argue that the artist could submit their work 4 times to cover these techniques, but I'd argue that's just arbitrary hoops for them to jump through and it would potentially reduce favourite counts, so popular images submitted this way would have trouble "bubbling up" on the search pages)

Making the computer do the work has the added benefit of not requiring the artist to recreate their image every time a new 3D viewing technology is created.

That's my 2 cents, anyway.

There should probably be a sub-category for 3DS-like images (the .mpo format) because -- while 3D -- they cannot be viewed without special hardware, so it would be kind of disappointing to run into those without that hardware. Of course, since the data is technically stored as two images, it would also be set up to display those images as side-by-side cross-eyed images. :)

Also, this is a wonderful idea and I'm very excited for this! :D

I like it. Thanks for the links explaining different forms of the art; I've seen an autostereogram or two as posters, and was told I was somehow supposed to cross my eyes and see it in 3D, but could never do it until now (never really knew what the kind of focus was that I should be aiming for).

Warning: can cause headaches if looked at for prolonged periods.

I would definitely suggest having a category for Cross-eyed pairs and/or autostereograms. Some of us deviants cannot cross our eyes properly, so it would be nice to be able to separate that category.

I think this is a great idea, considering there is a slight diffrence between 3d and this topic. 3D usually refers to the illusion that the image is ethier- A: Coming off the screen, into your face (megamind is a good example) or B: Giving the impression you are looking into the screen, as if you are actually there (How to Train your Dragon uses this impression in theaters). I feel as if Stereoscopy is a C option: As if you arent exactly looking into a scene, but more like if you put a peice of clay on top of a peice of carboard to give slight depth. Stating that, i dont think there should be too many subcatergories. If someone like me who has NO idea about how to catergorize these works of art, seeing a mass of subs' could scare them! I think the only the catergories mentioned, plus a few to just narrow it down a bit to seperate the quirky, hyper colored ones from the top-notch fancy illusions. You may want to seperate by colors, just to help with the organizing.

Digital art, stereoscopy, phantogram, fan art, Man Ray, Black & white, profiles, top lit............... Don't over do it. Phantograms could easily become popular, but for now I wouldn't bother. Conversions, most definitely. This has the potential to take off. Subs for (TTW) through the window, Hyper, fancy frames etc. are unnecessary divisions I think, even though they are my favorites.

This seems very good! One issue which I think is bigger than for right here .. what about the categories apart from the 3D things, such as if art is manga, anthro, fan art, traditional, etc.? I think DA should be allowing multiple categories for one art .. like ebay who allows multiple categories for each product. I think making that happen would be huge work but would solve problems from many branches with same categories .. and allow easier + more accurate describing of art of course.

on a sidenote: a feature, similar to youtube's 3D-feature, might be a solution. so the viewer can directly decide, what kind of "3D-output" he'd like to see? i don't know how you could technically realize that but it's mainly about uploading the two seperate source files...

why not use the different techniques as sub-categories? so we'd have 4: "anaglyph", "wiggle", "cross-eyed/side by side" and "autostereogram" - plus maybe a 5th "miscellaneous" one, for anything else.
personally, I'm only interested in anaglyphs and wiggle pictures, so dividing the gallery by techniques would be the most helpful. :)

Do you think that would make it more difficult to find pictures in particular mediums or of particular things? like finding all pictures of people would be quite hard that way?

:) But I like your idea

janey-in-a-bottle Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
it probably depends on how well used the gallery will be, but since you can make a stereoscopic picture out of pretty much everything, you could easily rebuilt all categories in there. that's why I thought to divide by techniques.
if it DOES become a little cramped in the sub-categories, one could probably sub-divide further into the medium (like photography, traditional art, digital art, etc...). for something like "people", I would use the search in the sub-category I want. or the other way around: search for "people" dA-wide and then narrow down through the galleries... I've rarely been disappointed that way. :)
