    stereoscopic view

    Hi,
    I'm new with this software...
    I want to know if is it possible to create a stereoscopic view with this software.
    I find this function in Strata 3D and I want to know if LightWave 3D has the same function.

    Do you mean does it do stereoscopic rendering or do you mean something else. Lightwave very easily does stereoscopic rendering.

    Select a camera
    hit the 'p' key for object properties
    Click on the stereo and DOF tab
    Enable stereoscopic rendering
    leave the 60mm separation setting for now. You can play with that later.
    Any thing you render with that camera will now render twice, once for the left eye and once for the right.

    Don't you also need to add the 'Anaglyph Stereo: Compose' Image Filter too to merge the two images together into a full stereoscopic image?

    (Doh, why did this thread come up in my New Posts? Just realised it's ancient!)

    hehe, I've accidentally revived a some dead threads before.

    Anyway, There is more than one way to display stereoscopic renders and the 'compose anaglyph' filter overwrites every other image (I don't remember if it's the left or the right image) so it's probably best to figure out another way to combine the images in post.

    It's fun to play with, though.

    How would you go about creating a finished image for use with say the red and green glasses?

    You can do it in Photoshop by following this tutorial: http://www.larry-bolch.com/shade/anaglyph/

    You can probably use this as a guide to figure out how to do it in a compositing app.

    There are some more links here that I haven't looked at:

    Thanks for the link, I am sure I had outputted direct from LW a long time ago, maybe version 6.5, probably just imagining it but I seem to remember playing about with it??

    As Dana mentioned above (read replies) you can output directly from LW a merged image that allows to watch the anaglyph stereo but itīs just meant for preview purposes as for the real thing you do need two images.
    A lot of stereo workflow is appearing in Fusion and Nuke recently and things are getting increasingly easier.
    3d animation? Hah! Did you take a look through your window?thereīs plenty of it...and pre-rendered!!

    lightwave can also gather the two images by itself witn no problems
    hoever theres differnt ways to controle your depth in the z
    so you might do some tests.

    i myself did quite some stereo images in lightwave
    so feel free to pop by my webpage at www.trhlogos.dk
    and take a look in my anaglyph section
    all done in lightwave

    have fun
    looking forward to see what you come up with

    MIS-- stereoscopic

    (blast from the past)

    MIS, exemplary stereo. Are you using the "Anaglyphic:Simulated" image filter to output these images?

    Just started messing about w/them, and my attempts are lacking.

    no luck with ANAGLYPH STEREO:COMPOSE

    So, I tried rendering some images using Stereoscopic Render and ANAGLYPH STEREO: Compose image filter.

    While the image viewer showed an anaglyph image as the animation rendered, the image actually saved in an F10 render was a single, standard image.

    There's a night's render wasted.

    So, what's the secret to getting the rendered anaglyphic image SAVED?

    The secret is using a simple scene to test stuff, with renders that take a few seconds for instant feedback. Specific to anaglyph stereo output of LW, sorry no clue. Never used it since it is not very versatile compared to doing it manual with 2 seperate cameras.

    Agreed! Much better control using separate cameras. I posted a tutorial for setting up Lightwave's Shift camera in a stereoscopic rig for creating distortionless stereo over on my blog (downloads from vectorform.com), and just added a Quartz Composer tutorial as well for compositing anaglyph images (Anachrome, Triochrome, and ColorCode). Photoshop and After Effects tutorials will be coming soon, but client work comes first.

    If you can use a simple screamernet manager like Easy, once a scene is finalised you can save it out to Left and Right versions then set them to render sequentially overnight. Testing first, of course, to make sure it works...but it's usually not too hard to render from two cameras. Not automated, of course, but the output is going to be more reliable.

    There's a more detailed discussion over here on some of the math needed for setting up a rig (more specific than what I covered in my tut). Wish I'd seen that before finishing development on my own setup!

    The problem is with the nature of the Image Filter.
