“There is something that 3D gives to the picture that takes you into another land and you stay there and it’s a good place to be.”
The depth workflow, along with the geometry workflow, is exclusive to 3D postproduction (Figure 5.1). In the depth workflow, teams adjust parallax (horizontal separation) to show viewers where to look in Z-Space. Some depth decisions are made to insure story continuity, others to insure viewer comfort. Depth is the workflow that relates most closely to why the show is in 3D.
In the depth workflow, teams manipulate parallax to change the apparent location in Z-Space of the area of interest in a 3D frame. As we learned in Chapter 1, horizontal parallax ...
