Live webinar: Wednesday, March 24, 2010
1:00-2:30 PM ET
In 2010, the stars are aligned … in 3D. Avatar and Alice in Wonderland are blowing up at the box-office, and stereo 3D gear for production and post is proliferating. There’s never been a better time to get into stereo 3D, but that doesn’t make it any easier to figure out the right workflow for your project. StudioDaily can’t make you a 3D guru overnight, but we can bring the gurus together to share insight and experience from real stereo 3D productions. This StudioDaily webinar will look at different working approaches to stereo 3D, including best practices from live-action shoots, ideas for working with animation and effects, and strategies for post-production.
You’ll learn …
• What are the components of a 3D camera rig, and how are they used on set?
• What do you have to get in camera, and what can be tweaked in post?
• How do you monitor your shoot in 3D, and what else does the director have to know?
• How different is cutting in 3D?
• What are the most painless 3D post options?
• How do you make sure the final product looks good in stereo?
SPECIAL NOTE: Bring your 3D glasses -- some slides may be in anaglyphic (red/cyan) 3D. If you don't have 3D glasses at your desk, download the presentation later to get the full picture!
