Good news. We completed the post-production on the 3D-filmed objects. This was done in Final Cut X using the Dashwood plugin. There was a lot of back and forth as we matched colour between the left and right eye images but we are happy that we have a strong set of 3D clips.
We have taken a Blu-ray of the final clips (along with one of our 3D TVs) down to Te Papa to show staff the results and they were really pleased with them.
That’s the main work of the project complete but we look forward to using what we have learnt for more work in the future.
We have now finished our sessions filming at Te Papa (more information here). We are moving into the post-production stage and will provide an update once we have more information about how that will progress.
The first 3D Production Initiative session took place at Victoria University of Wellington on Thursday 1 August and the second at Te Papa’s Tory Street site on Thursday 15 August. More information about how it went can be found here and here.
We are now in the process of organising the next sessions. Because we had such a healthy turn out we will have to sub divide into smaller groups so we will be in touch soon to let everyone know when their next session will be.
If you want to find out more information about the sessions, send you details to *Miriam.Ross[@]vuw.ac.nz*

To the Victoria University of Wellington “3D Production Initiative!”
During the next 6 months we invite you to join us as we embark on a brave new adventure into 3D Production.
The aims of this project are to explore the realms of low budget 3D with the goal of introducing 3D Production into our regular teaching in the Film Programme at Victoria University of Wellington.
We are inviting all interested parties; undergraduate, post-graduate, staff and alumni to join us as we boldly venture into the third dimension.
We will be working with staff at Te Papa and Weta to uncover the many mysteries of 3D Production.
If you are interested in being involved in the “3D Production Initiative” write a comment below, leave your email details and we’ll put you on the list of Stereonauts.
Stand by for lift off…
