|Autodesk released a Stereoscopic Filmmaking Whitepaper
delivering a comprehensive understanding of the state of the
industry and its current barriers. The whitepaper provides valuable
knowledge for anyone curious about the future of Stereo 3D (S3D)
and highlights current industry challenges from technical
production complexities to studio considerations and theatrical
The whitepaper is available for download:
While the industry faces numerous economic, technical and creative barriers, the growth of Stereo 3D is omnipresent and the demand for live action SD3 cannot be ignored. Autodesk’s whitepaper devotes a considerable amount of thought to standardized workflow processes and the creation of affordable tools to make S3D more available and accessible to a broader range of film projects—both independent and studio-driven.

Not too bad, but I'd have liked to see examination of the various presentation formats pros & cons--color anaglyph, for instance, wasn't even mentioned, yet its the only technology usable--right now, anyway--on home TV. The other thing is that you have to remember, /Story First/. That's what damaged many of the earlier generations of 3D flicks. Rule of thumb: if it isn't good enough in 2D to release, it isn't gonna get any better in 3D. (Yes, I know this is only a technical paper--but that's the point; viewing only technical considerations gets you in big trouble; "Becky Thatcher" worked, not because of Technicolor, but because it's a great story, which the color enhanced; ; to the extent that it did, "Commin' at Ya" worked /despite/ the 3D gimmicks, not because of them. In short, "Ishtar 3D" would still be "Ishtar".... pgf
