    Excellent. You'd have to be a real Dumbo not to see these.. ;-)

    Gary,

    Are the 3D images used to create these normally lit or do they need to get progressively darker, depending on the depth from the front?

    Keep up the work...they're really cool.

    Peace

    James

    The depth image which the software uses to determine the shape of the hidden object has to work from the back to the front and is very different from a photographic image. Darker colors recede and lighter colors come forward. So each of these depth images becomes an illustration. Each of these depth images take 4-8 hours to build up. And I constantly bring the image into Stereographic Suite to see the progress and to see what needs work and what is working and what is not.

    The attached is the current image, a Panda mom and baby.

    So, you make the panda image using Xara and then run some software on it which takes the depth queues from the light and darkness of the image - basically a depth map. Did I get that right?

    Beautiful work Gary! Great depth and detail~!
    However, I can't figure out what the first one is holding in front of himself. A book? a sign?

    This one is still in the works. But here is the work in progress stereogram so far.

    Paul - Yes, the stereogram software uses the depth images I create in Xara, as well as the patterns also created in Xara and repeats the pattern a number of times and shifts the pattern around for each panel. This shifting of the pattern is what creates the illusion of 3D.

    The patterns are often very complex combinations of images and various transparencies. The attached shows a pattern with four elements, spaced so you can see each portion. Some patterns have as many as 7 layers.

    Thanks Gary - that example works really well.
