Understanding Views

The views generated in HumanEyes software represent different viewpoints, simulating photos taken by multiple cameras positioned around the scene.

HumanEyes solutions analyze the sequence shot during the photography stage and generate panoramic views from this sequence. Each panoramic view is a compilation of the entire photo sequence. The user then chooses the number of virtual view points required and the distance between them.

In order to see 3D, each eye needs to receive a different view. When only two views are used, there is only one possible spot from which the image can be seen in 3D. As more views are added, more spots from which the image can be seen in 3D are available. Usually, 10 to 20 views are created.

The HumanEyes software calculates the recommended number of views according to the printer resolution and the lenticular lens's pitch.

3D interlaced images
The 3D interlaced image is a specially prepared image to which the lens is attached. The views generated by the software are arranged under lenticules so that each eye is projected a different view. The brain then integrates these views into a single, coherent 3D image.
Working with your printer
It is important that there is communication between the printer, the lenticular lens and the interlaced image. To find the correct correspondence, you use the HumanEyes lenticular software to perform a pitch test on the printer that will be used when printing the 3D interlace image. The exact resolution of your printer is also needed for interlacing.
