RealD launches Stereo3D calculator app for iPhone, iTouch & iPad


MUMBAI: RealD Inc in association with FrameForge Previz Studio has launched, RealD Professional Stereo3D Calculator app for iPhone, iTouch and iPad, a pre-production and on-set tool for filmmakers shooting in stereoscopic 3D.


Designed for both seasoned stereographers and newcomers to stereo 3D production, this app saves time and budget by calculating parallax and separation to plan stereo 3D depth, helping a filmmaker determine an optimal camera rig, its settings and lens configuration.


The RealD Professional Stereo3D Calculator is now available for download from iTunes for $299.99.


"Shooting in 3D is an art form, one that can be challenging not only for novices but experienced professionals as well given the calculations needed to create an effective and comfortable 3D visual. This Calculator takes away the guesswork involved in shooting in 3D, helping ensure the best configured rigs are in place for each shot and maximizing on-set efficiency," said RealD president Joshua Greer.


"Like our FrameForge Previz Studio software package, the goal is to deliver a tool that helps filmmakers shoot better stereo 3D by handling the complicated 3D calculations for them. With this app, a filmmaker can remain focused on creating powerful and compelling 3D instead of getting lost in the angles, geometry and optics behind it," added Ken Schafer, Innoventive Software (FrameForge Previz Studio) president and lead program architect.
