Overview of 3D Photography Using HumanEyes Capture3D
A sequence of pictures is shot using any still or video digital camera, and then downloaded onto a computer where the software generates the required views. The number of pictures required varies, but for optimum results HumanEyes recommends approximately a picture taken for every degree of the scene.
Each picture shot contributes to the final image. Therefore, the more pictures taken, the truer the sense of depth achieved in the final, seamless picture.
Unlike other 3D photography methods, the scene does not have to be re-shot in order to make alterations to the 3D output. The original sequence of pictures can be used any number of times to create images of different sizes and depth.

Shooting in low and high resolutions
Doing the shoot
The length of the shoot is dependent on several factors. The most important variables are resolution, camera, and location.
For example, using a Nikon D1H camera, about 100 low-resolution photos can be shot in 1 minute. The lower the resolution, the faster the process; and similarly, if the photos are taken outside and do not require a flash, the process is also quicker as the photographer does not need to wait for the flash to load.
The number of photographs is dependent on the width of the set. As the number of photos increases, so does the panoramic angle of the picture. As a general rule, at least one photo is needed per one degree.
There is no problem if you wish to stop the process and continue it later, as long as the set and the lighting conditions do not change. If in some photos there were lighting problems or background motion, the user has the opportunity to ignore these photos during the processing stage. If a large number of photos are unusable, then the photo sequence must be reshot.
3D photographs can be taken in black and white.
