Old Japan in 3 Dimensions

Beautiful Antique Images in 3D

These three dimensional images from Old Japan were created from antique Stereoscopic photos by T. Enami and provide a unique window to a bygone historic era.

The pictures were animated by Okinawa Soba and more pics and info about the photographcs can be found on his Flickr page.

Wiggle Stereoscopy is possibly the simplest stereogram viewing technique, is to simply alternate between the left and right images of a stereogram. Closing one eye and moving the head from side-to-side when viewing a selection of objects helps one understand how this works. Objects that are closer appear to move more than those further away.

Most wiggle images use only two images, leading to an annoyingly jerky image. A smoother image, more akin to a motion picture image where the camera is moved back and forth, can be composed by using several intermediate images (perhaps with synthetic motion blur) and longer image residency at the end images to allow inspection of details. Another option is a shorter time between the frames of a wiggle image.

Learn more about Wiggle Stereoscopy on Wikipedia.

      I love this effect and tried to make a wiggle animation from just one photograph. It is possible but involves a lot work and the end result is not brilliant.

      @martyp lm: No special glasses are required, the 3D effect is caused by animating between two perspectives, kind of like the perspective shift you get from closing your right and left eyes quickly back and forth.

    • martyp lm profile image

      martyp lm 5 years ago

      Do you need special glasses to see these better? I sort of see 3D with the bare eye but I am curious if I need those blue/red glasses?

      That's cool! I knew combining left and right images created a 3D effect, but I didn't know all you had to do was flash back and forth between the images to create the same effect. Crazy. Great lense!
