Stereoscopic 3D has come of age with the success of films like Avatar and Alice in Wonderland, and the entertainment industry is abuzz with interest in finding fast, efficient workflows that deliver quality results on reliable schedules.
In the third installment of the motion+connect Summer Series, Chris Meyer – principal at Crish Design and leading After Effects expert – presents After Effects: Stereoscopic 3D. He’ll be sharing ideas and techniques on how to use the new Stereo Camera Rig plus the greatly improved 3D camera depth of field blur in Adobe After Effects CS5.5 to create watchable stereo experiences for video, web, and other delivery means.
Next up, the motion+connect QuickFix features a live interview with Creative Director William Lebeda, of Picture Mill. William will talk with motion+connect host, Elaine Montoya about the creative side of stereoscopic 3D and about the process of creating title designs for feature films – and what changes when taking stereo 3D into consideration.
