New basswood, baby!
It’s time to make my final image-splitter design, and as I explain in this video, I’m going to go ahead and make one with a 2 1/2 inch stereo base, just like the one I used to shoot the video: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=661212690657301&l=57285e9a2d

Yes, ladies and gentlemen and boys and girls, it’s official! I have decided after all these years to call my cubic illusion “art”.
This version of my homemade image-splitter has close to a 2 1/2 inch stereo base, which is similar to our human eyes, and here’s a photo of the rig: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=661212690657301&l=57285e9a2d

Warning! Warning! Camcorder recording glitch at 00:30!
And… autofocus fail! So, I won’t try _that_ again! :(
Also… apparently I failed to save yesterday’s alignment settings… so this “using the same settings twice” test will have to start with this shot…
You know, I’ve had this weird feeling, lately, that after all these years I need to call my cubic illusion an “art”… How does the amount of depth look in this one?
BTW, is that a tiny bit of barrel distortion that I see? Perfect alignment will be impossible, then! Looks like I better zoom in a bit!
How many strikes do I get before I’m “out”, anyway?

Here’s the stereoscopic calculations that I used: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=661299703981933&l=a09deb9240

This has got to be the simplest stereoscopic image-splitter design known to man, but am I ever having problems getting this thing made, and I have no idea how to measure the stereo base — I thought I did, but now I’m not sure, so I’m just measuring the amount of depth on my camera’s LCD screen! Yikes!
Also, stereoscopic alignment during editing, so far, has been tricky at best and impossible at times.
But this is supposed to be fun, right? :/
Here’s a photo of the latest, greatest version:

Looking at 3D on Maddy’s iPod Touch is an awesome experience, as long as you do it correctly.
