It has been suggested that my “Better Luck Next Time, Cartoon Man!” clip
demonstrates a perceived distortion of stereoscopic volume of the Cartoon Man’s
head between the two camera shots. The head itself is disproportionately “large”, of
course, but that is not the argument. The argument is that the change from the
medium closeup to the closeup creates two different amounts of roundness.
Both camera shots have a net deviation (NetD) of close to 3.3% (my “optimum”).
In this version, I have animated the floating window. My goal is to trick the
viewer into feeling like they are changing relative positions in z-space, which
theoretically might eliminate any perception of different amounts of character
Does it work?
