Neil, thank you for sharing your list. I had forgotten I also own "Fazinierende Natur Dirdimensional" which is in over/under format.

You didn't mention it ut "3D Australia An Awesome 3-Dimensional Experience" by Ken Duncan and Leo Meier and 3-D Friends has a lenticular of God's Marbles (Wauchope, Northern Territories, Australia) on the cover in addition to the parallel views within the book.

The following book looks interesting. I wonder if anyone here owns it and can offer an opinion. I found it on www.stereoscopy.com

3D Abstract And Impressionist Paintings In Chromadepth, by Dorle Wolf.
This beautiful coffee table book is a pleasing alternative viewing experience from that of stereo photography. At ISU Lindau, we were so impressed with Dorle's gallery of Chromadepth paintings. Her work is beautifully displayed in this143 page book. Printed in the German, includes poems and writings by Dorle Wolf. Chromadepth glasses included.

Nevertheless, at 4 AM in Spain, will be quite hard to participate. Are you planning to record it and to share it im some way ?

Re: STMANI3 - A tool for stereo alignment #alignment #workFlow

 

I don't currently own a Win 10 computer but I am interested to know
more about running a Linux application with Win 10.
First thing I need to point out is that I have not used this feature
myself. I work all day on Linux servers and I have Macs, so the only
thing I need to do with my old Windows laptop is to run Windows.

Also important to know -- right now only Linux command line programs
are supported. But support for Linux GUI apps is on the horizon.

https://www.theverge.com/2020/5/19/21263377/microsoft-windows-10-linux-gui-apps-gpu-acceleration-wsl-features

Does it just run natively or must Linux also be installed and it
runs it virtually.
First off, you have to install a Linux. You take your pick from a
number of supported distributions.

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- openSUSE Leap 15.1
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP5
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP1
- Kali Linux
- Debian GNU/Linux
- Fedora Remix for WSL
- Pengwin
- Pengwin Enterprise
- Alpine WSL

It looks pretty easy to do:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10

As for the native/emulation question, Wikipedia says...

"Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a compatibility layer for
running Linux binary executables (in ELF format) natively on Windows
10 and Windows Server 2019."

That's what little I know about this new feature (and I really don't
know that, having not done it myself).

If you remember my statement that "Anything can be aligned", STMANI3 is the program that I use to prove... at least some of the test cases:-)

I was not on this mailing-list when this discussion took place, but the statement is quite obvious when you do the math. However, it comes with some limitations on the field of view for example, since you can only have stereoscopic effect in the zone seen by both cameras. Even if I read only parts of this discussion, I was happy to see confirmations of what I saw in the equations too.

In the last days, I drew an illustration of this with voluntarily exaggerated divergence (left/right and up/down) as well as a rotation of the cameras around the optical axis. It was not motivated by this thread, but it might be an interesting addition to the topic: https://stereopix.net/photo:koUNdrW2kF/

Re: STMANI3 - A tool for stereo alignment #alignment #workFlow

 

The dependencies of new version [of STMANI] are easier to fulfill
and actually they installed without problem on my [Linux] system.
That's good to hear. BTW Windows 10 users may not realize that
Microsoft now supports running Linux under Windows.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10

This might be an interesting thing to explore for the more adventurous
computer nerds in our group. I am thinking that there is a good
chance I will be able to run STMANI under macOS, which itself is based
on BSD Unix. I just don't know when I will have the time to tackle
it. But nonetheless, it is always good to have some alternatives out
there for the alignment of 3D digital images.

I did a studio session recently with the goal of doing some close-up photography to produce 3D lenticular prints and stereo pairs.

LA 3D Club Virtual Meeting This Thursday

Lawrence W Kaufman
 

The LA 3D Club May Virtual Meeting Thursday, May 21st at 7PM PDT. The
May virtual meeting of the LA 3-D Club will take place on Thursday,
May 21 from 7:00pm – 8:30pm PDT.
http://la3dclub.com/may-virtual-meeting/

The evening will include:
“Tripod Boy to Dali Door” – Creative compositing in the third
dimension. Club member Carl Wilson will discuss his 12 years of
compositing people in 3D, Where he finds his inspiration, and an
overview of how Tripod Boy and Dali Door were created.
From the 3-DLegends.com website, curated by Susan Pinsky, we will take
a look back in time to remember the work of Charley Van Pelt
(1929-2015), who started as a View-Master salesman in 1947 and went on
to become one of the main View-Master scenic photographers. David
Starkman will share pictures and stories about Charley and invite
those who knew him to join in the discussion with their own memories.
You can follow along with the images at
https://archivesusie3d.wixsite.com/3-dlegends/charley-van-pelt
Continuing the tribute to Charley Van Pelt and the View-Master, we
will take a look at the video slideshow VIEW-MASTER MEMORIES, by
Wolfgang and Mary Ann Sell.

We’ll close the meeting with a look at the ISU Club Online Digital
Exchange 25C, which includes images made by photographers from all
over the world, including members of the LA 3-D Club.

Members can sign in early at 6:30pm to socialize. All are welcome to attend.

I own the Ferwerda book, several of Mark Blum's 3D books as well as one in the same format by Duncan on Australia and the Mission Moon book by Eicher and May.  I also have Paris in 3D: From Stereoscopy to Virtual Reality 1850-2000. As well I have a digital copy of McKay's book. Additionally I have the Harold Lloyd book of anaglyphs.

I was wondering what other books (in or out of print) members may recommend as essential or desirable for the 3D library.

Obviously there are a broad range of topics - Stereoviews, Stereoscopes, Film 3D Cameras, Viewmaster equipment and reels,Technique  books for taking or mounting images, books with 3D views, and books of historical interest.

My interest would be in books on technique, books with images for viewing (parallel or anaglyph) but responses need not be limited to those topics.  Perhaps references on Holmes Stereoviews.

So what books do you think are essential to a 3D library or have extraordinary or historically important images that a 3D enthusiast should own?

Re: Scotland in 3D

robwilljy
 

Following on from the thread recommending stereo themed books....
Re Peter Blair's book "Scotland in 3D - A Victorian Virtual Reality Tour". I can certainly recommend this wonderful book. Beautifully reproduced stereocards with fascinating background information on each card. A useful introduction to 3D chapter too which makes it an ideal gift for someone new to stereo photography. My issue came with a small Loreo like viewer, but to get the best out of the superb printing (especially if a gift) it would be worth adding an Owl viewer. I ordered the book direct from his website www.scotlan3d.com    . (Note the missing "d". - or the inserted "3" depending on how you see it :-)
