3D Lenticular Production


1. The first and most often used method consists of a single camera with a fast frame rate mounted to a motion control device (for example, a motorized rail or a robotic arm). Genuflex rig courtesy of General Lift, Los Angeles CA.

2. Another method of capturing the images would be a multiple camera setup, commonly referred to as a bullet rig. Both photographic methods are typically shot on blue or green screen for later background compositing. Bullet rig courtesy of TimeSlice Films, London, UK.


3. The third method of generating the necessary frames for volumetric lenticular would be to construct the image in a 3D modeling software such as Maya. The multiple camera perspective setup can be arranged as needed and the perspectives can be rendered for printing. The image below is an example of a flexible model created in Maya.

High resolution printing and precision mounting is also an important part of the process. The tolerances are microscopic, and each print is handled like a unique work of art. We welcome a side by side comparison with anyone in the industry.
