We create custom stereograms based on your logo or 3D concept. What
are stereograms, you say?
Stereograms are two dimensional pictures that contain hidden three
dimensional images when viewed properly. To those who haven't figured
out how yet, all you need is depth perception (both eyes in good working
order) and some practice.
The technical mumbo jumbo is that you need to decouple convergence
(how your eyes point) from accommodation (how your eyes focus). You
point your eyes as if you are looking at something roughly twice as far
away, while still focusing on the image at its real position. This is
why it sometimes helps to have glass covering an image so you can try to
concentrate on your own reflection. You stare through it to a point
behind the picture, and the repeating pattern overlaps exactly one time.
Slight variations in the pattern are picked up by your brain as depth
changes because your eyes need to adjust their convergence very slightly
to make up for those pattern variations.
Now that we're through the boring gearhead stuff, let's move on to
what you came for.
What You Want: Art
You want a 3D picture to help you with an advertising campaign,
promotion, motivational seminar, book cover, calendar, or to fill
whatever niche you have for an eccentric bit of artwork.
What We Have: Skills
We have knowledge of the theory behind stereograms and have created
the fully custom software necessary to design and create Single Image Random Dot Stereograms
for you. We have been building stereograms and tinkering with the concept since 1988. Since that time we have designed
custom stereogram images for a wide range of customers and uses.
Images can take anywhere from hours to weeks to create, depending on
the complexity of the scene and the pattern used to hide the image. The
Temple picture below took a month of detailed 3D modeling.
What We Need: Information
Please contact us if you would like a
custom stereogram made, and we will give you a quote. Two dimensional
logos can be turned into embossed 3D hidden images. Full three
dimensional content can be designed to meet your needs. The following information will help us give you
a quicker answer:
- Final image size
- 3D content (the 3D image hidden in the picture)
- What you would like for the random pattern (the regularly
repeating image that gets distorted to produce the 3D image)
- Final format (TIFF, JPG, PSD, etc.)
- Delivery method (Image on CD, printed poster, FTP copy, etc.)
