Close one eye and see.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Hi Steve,

I have my first pair of continuous focal lenses (the modern version of bi-focals). They take some getting used to but I love mine Smile

I remember the Rolling Stones did a TV special once that was in 3D.

The darkened one lens is how it worked.
Pretty lame 3D though.

The darkened lens thing is pretty good for some aspects. Gotta be about seventy percent darkened over your dominant eye though.

I've not seen 3D anything, are some of the movies they are making really good as far as the 3D goes?

So, do we dream in 3d?

Avatar in Imax 3D is stunning. The other 3D movie I really enjoyed (also in Imax) was the visit to the space station. Next best thing to being there.

Its not clear what we "dream in." During some dreams (not all) there is rapid eye movement (REM) that suggests that our body is at least responding to stimulus as if we were seeing something, but since dreams occur totally in the brain and not in the eyes, this is sort of a side effect. Certainly a large part of any dream is purely conceptual, this is noticeable when you are aware of things in the dream without any dreamed stimulus for them.

3D computer graphics, not the 3D technique involving glasses but simply crisp properly rendered 3D graphics as used in Avatar and many other movies can induce a 3D experience even if you have only one eye.

A crisp, high resolution LCD or plasma TV can appear to be somewhat 3D, the brain is putting together the few missing pieces. I'm sure someone with one eye could experience the same thing.

If you cover one eye, you are supposed to lose all depth perception like a photograph does. But our brain compensates and thus, people with one eye covered can still tell how far away things are, based on other visual clues.

Depth perception is not as simple as just 2 eyes spaced a distance apart. Our brain is doing a lot of the work.

When you're looking at 3D modeling, computer graphics and then combine it with techniques used to enhance the 3D effects in a movie like Avatar, including panning and things coming at you, I don't doubt someone with one eye can get a glimpse of what is going on. The brain takes a lot of things into account when compiling what we "see".

Oops, I pretty much repeated what Jonathan had already eloquently stated.

The mind is a tricky bugger. And a terrible thing to waste Smile

Minds are great toys... so much fun to play with! (Isn't that why we are all here? Smile )

And remember, a waist is a terrible thing to mind!

I have to do some magic for a 3D shoot tomorrow or Friday. I wonder what effects you might recommend?

I thought I was the only one with one eye vision here. I lost my vision in my left eye about 7 months ago. Got cortizone shots in the eye then they switched to something called lucentis I believe is the name of it. Not really helping. I cannot recognize anyone or anything with my left eye.

All I know is that it really sucks and positively wreaked havoc on my pool game.

Out of curiosity, do you have any additional problems with driving and depth perception?
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I won't forget you Robert.

Yes my depth perception is definitely effected. When parkinig it is very difficult to tell how far I am from an object when at close distances. Tossing a ball around with grandkids is just about impossible as I can see it but not sure how far it is from me. As a result makes it next to impossible to catch with any regularity.

I have vision in both eyes, but one is very weak leading to a dominant eye which some have brought up. I rarely have seen 3D effets work for me. Watching a 3D movie in a theatre is something I'll never pay for again. Fuzzy tinted images are no fun for 2-hours. When I was young, I used to irritate the eye examiners when I explained to them that the ball was not over the seal's nose. (anybody remember that test?) They were separate to me. My brain did not merge the two images into one. I would think the disparity in vision strength for people not completely blind in one affects their ability to perceive 3D video. Less disparity may still allow people to see 3D images.
