Our friend “Lenny” was created using Autodesk 3D Studio Max. Lentils is a very simple little tool that takes six pictures and arranges them so that the can be viewed through a lenticular lens sheet. On default the first line is black, the others are white. As a rule, at first the step value of 0.1 is tested, the stripe which renders switching between background colors more precisely and sharply is kept in mind. You should set vertical direction of lens for stereo images (in respect to the horizon line). The Pitch test generates in three modes: Standard, Thin, and Custom.
When the image is positioned correctly, the mark in the lower part of the area will be located right under the mark from the upper part of the area. Standard mode generates two lines with a 1:1 aspect ratio for every lens. It may be useful when you have to print a large format image. Copyright © 2004-2018 by TRIAXES ®.
Special 3D software gives users much more flexibility when working with the image (light, views, etc …) and allows a perfect fit to the lenticular material used. The effect occurs when using printers with regular method of color dot formation. Lenticular Photo Capture program is designed to control the digital cameras connected to the computer via USB. After that, it is necessary to select all the rest frames in turn (make them. The View Master works with a stereo pair, but lenticular printing works with many stereo pairs thus allowing the viewer to perceive the depth effect from different points. The project can be saved as an .mtp file. A pixel-wide frame is placed around the pitch test, which allows it to be aligned with the lenticular screen appropriately. A pixel-wide frame is placed around the pitch test, which allows it to be aligned with the lenticular screen appropriately. Another option would be to move the camera laterally in front of the scene. Attention: To get a high quality lenticular image you have to perform a pitch test prior to encoding in order to correct the encoding pitch. below): When enabling the Alignment marks option in the Alignment marks tab you can set the frame width measured in lenses (i.e. To generate the pitch test, you have to switch to the Lenticular tab of the Navigator window and press Pitch test. can have any lens direction; however, most typically horizontal lenses orientation is used.
For example, if the resolution equals 720 ppi and the pitch is 60 lpi (Pitch=60), then Nmin is 12. .
For more details see section, parameters allow to specify the image size (in millimeters) you want to use for printing. So it is better to use at least 12 source images to create 3D in this case, Image encoding can be performed for a lenticular screen with either horizontal or vertical lenses orientation.
After that a refining pitch test is performed with the step of 0.01 lpi. The sequence of frames, Useful tip: The program has a feature of saving to a file simultaneously with generating. The image is generated either to a Photoshop .psd file (with the support of the CMYK color model) or to the Windows bitmap .bmp format. structure group you can choose one of the pre-installed modes for flip and 3D images, or the manual mode, where you can set the number of colored lines. You can specify the necessary parameters of the test page in this dialog. In this example, the scene was “turning” before the camera. Click Select printer to choose one of the installed printers in the system. It is convenient to use this feature when creating lenticular images of large sizes. (This may not be possible with some types of ads). The direction of lenses is set in the, option. To open the Picture Layout window press the Layout button in the Lenticular tab. This phenomenon is called parallax.
On default the first line is black, the others are white. Please refer to our, I agree to receive these communications from SourceForge.net via the means indicated above.
The interlace panel is used to load in image frames for interlacing, arrange the source image order and set up the parameters of the output image.
Fig. In most cases it is recommended to set the resolution equal to the resolution of the printer you use in ppi. To reduce the moire effect, sometimes it is useful to rotate the image before printing. to choose one of the installed printers in the system. The rotation angle is defined in the following way: you must apply the lenticular screen onto the printed image and rotate it until the moire disappears. 2.8. A fragment of the pitch test is shown in the picture (fig. The Resolution parameter defines a resolution of the encoded image in ppi (pixels per inch).
You seem to have CSS turned off. Software solutions like “StereomorpherPlus” or “Stereo Tracer” will generate a sufficient number of images for lenticular printing. 2.5.
The dialog with the picture layout parameters will be shown (see Fig. Set the parameters of the lenticular material and print size then click Generate; The generated (interlaced) image can be either printed or saved to a file. LIC is currently available for Windows and OSX. checkbox allows the lenticular screen to be applied correctly to the printed pitch test. Below you can see the image generated with the use of all the above mentioned encoding parameters: Fig. Before printing the image, the program by request of the printer driver sets the image to the resolution (in ppi) which the driver is capable to process. Although this is one of the most common methods, the result can look rather flat (like a stage set) as each layer within the image is actually flat.
To get a high quality lenticular image you have to perform a pitch test prior to encoding in order to correct the encoding pitch.
The rotation of the image to the appropriate angle during printing should prevent the color moire effect. To generate the pitch test, you have to switch to the. So if you create an image for printing, you are advised to use the printer resolution in ppi. NOTES: This software is in a 'beta' state, shaking out the bugs and such. The.
The Printer name and its resolution (pixels per inch) will appear above the button. In the Crop marks tab the Crop marks checkbox allows to set the length of the crop marks (in mm/inches). dialog to find out the printing resolution in ppi. Creating 3D lenticular images using live photographs. The Outline frame parameter adds an outline black frame with the width of 0,1 mm (or 0,004 inch) to the resulting image. You can also set the color for each line under the lens, for that - choose the required color in the palette and left-click on the required line in the Preview area (or use the right click when hovering on the line). Alignment marks and crop marks for the encoded image. When the image is positioned correctly, the mark in the lower part of the area will be located right under the mark from the upper part of the area. When specifying the resolution, you should take into account that the higher the value of this parameter is the larger the encoded image will be (in bytes) and the longer it will take to encode it. When interlaced as described before, the lenticular lens separates the image seen by your left eye from the image seen by your right eye. Get notifications on updates for this project.
Dynamic images (flip, morph, etc.)
3) by altering the angle of observation (moving forward and backward in respect to the lenticular image) identify the code stripe which changes its color simultaneously along its full length.
This software fills the gap for a free or low cost, cross platform interlacing solution.
You can select the value from the drop-down list or type it using the keyboard. Values, which are specified by printer manufacturers, can be up to 5440 dpi and more.
