A couple of things. First, the dates for the US tour for 59 Seconds have now been confirmed…
Jan 5 & 6–New York
Jan 9 & 10–Vegas
Jan 12– San Francisco
Jan 13–Los Angeles
More details as I get them. Second, there is something of a 3D revival going on at the moment (including several horror films and a great magic special on C4 last night), so I thought it would be good to introduce The Pulfrich Effect. For most 3D effects you need to make a special film and have people watch it with odd glasses. However, it is possible to get the same effect on ‘normal’ footage. All you need to do is have someone cover one eye with something that darkens the image (e.g., sunglasses or one lens of 3D glasses) and view a scene with lateral movement. Interestingly, the effect does not work for everyone, but give it a go with the following clip (kindly sent to me by Chris Lawrence)…..
According to Chris, the effect works well with football games – meaning you can turn a 2D game into 3D.
Did it work for you? Any idea why?
