Re: Another attempt on 3D
- Thanks for your suggestion, Wim.
I had expected this violation because I knew that some objects would be too close to the camera to get near and far adjusted perfectly.
So I tried to find a compromise where the silhouettes are not too obvious.
By moving the stereo point do you mean I should try what you called smart masks in your tutorial?
I used the Tokina 10-7 at 12mm and 30 images. The Npp offset was about 3 cm, I can't tell exactly because I don't have a mark for that on my panoramic head since for regular panoramas I only use it with a ring.

No, I don't mean using a smart mask (although that could possible help to
avoid some eye stress in zenith), what I mean is that you shift the left and
right images in StereoPhoto Maker in such a way that the zero parallax point
is set close to the end of the branches and not in the trunk as it is now.
It is easiest to set the zero parallax point without using a red/cyan
viewer, first you pick a zero parallax point and then you shift the images
until you see no color fringes at the chosen point.
For this is best to view the anaglyph at 100%. The width and distance of the
color fringes will increase from zero at the chosen point to a maximum at
objects in the back of the scene.
If you want to reduce the eye stress in zenith as much as possible without
using a smart mask then it is best to set the zero parallax point at the end
of the branches and not somewhere between the end and the trunk.
If you set the zero parallax point at the end of the branches then you miss
the "popping out of the screen" 3D effect of the branches but it could be
very well that this will improve the overall quality in such a way that it
is a good trade off.
You have to try it out and see what works best.
BTW, I think you have chosen the right number of images and the proper NPP
forward shift, the 3D depth is really good and both me and Margriet like
your forest pano a lot.
