I just downloaded the 3D trailer for Green Lantern on the Nintendo 3DS and it looks amazing.
I had expected the 3D effect that is obviously designed for a large 20ft+ screen to be very limited or possibly even ineffective on the small 3.5 inch screen on the 3Ds but I was pleasantly surprised. The 3D really pops, if somewhat flat cut-out style at points and the colours and quality of the image on the little screen look absolutely stunning.
My biggest frustration is trying to find out a way to get some Enhanced Dimensions 3D videos ported over to playback on the little Nintendo – it’s really annoying that there isn’t currently a simple video playback app built int. Also the fact that the only way to currently get videos onto the machine are via the online store is extremely limiting – there’s so much good content out there that could be made freely available for this great little machine.
Come on Nintendo give us some access!
Although it’s not really 3D related I thought I’d give an update on the titles for we’re working on for the forthcoming indie feature film “ElectricMan”.
We’ve been working from the original supplied comic book graphics to rebuild the scenes in 2.5D for animating. It’s been quite a task, made considerably more difficult by the original artwork depicting raining scenes! In order to animate we had to first re-create the layers in the scenes removing each rain streak to create a clean starting plate that we can then animate and finally reintroduce the rain streaks to; it’s not the easiest way to work! The shot above, magically converted to 3d of course, is from the beginning of the title sequence as electric man queue’s for a days labouring in depression era america. If we get time and permission we might demonstrate the intro sequence in 3d
The film is currently being edited and the title sequence is about 80% complete, fingers crossed the film will be playing at film festivals this year and might find it’s way to a multiplex near you.
If you’re interested in investing there are still ways to get involved – check out the ElectricMan The Movie website for more details.
Hey all, I had to share this 3d conversion I’ve just completed for the Electric Man film. This anaglyph print will be available in limited numbers from the Electric Man team complete with the requisite red cyan 3d glasses at next weeks Comic Con in London. Grab one while you can.
For more info on Electric Man or this limited edition poster check out the Electric Man website.
We’re really excited here at Enhanced Dimensions to announce our involvement with an upcoming indie feature film. The film called “Electric Man” is an indie comedy with a great script and an enthusiastic crew primed for action. It is set to start shooting later this year in and around Edinburgh and although it’s a 2d film we’re thrilled to be involved and will no doubt have a whole range of 3d Electric Man related goodies to show off over the next few months.
The film is still at funding stage so if you’re interested in getting involved do check out the site at http://www.electricmanmovie.com

The UK’s leading tabloid is going 3D.
3D Vision Blog reports that on June 5th The Sun will have a special one off 3D issue that will have free anaglyph 3D glasses. Now if only I can find a way to help out for their page three imagery…
The latest version of Reallusion’s facial animation tool Crazy Talk offers stereoscopic 3d animated output for anaglyph or side by side purposes.
Another nice little feature on their site is a simple clear explanation of how S3D works
