  • Patent number: 10356329
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for correcting the zoom setting and/or the vertical offset in an image assembled from two sub-frames of a stereo film, wherein the one sub-frame is provided by a first camera of a camera rig and the second sub-frame is provided by a second camera of the camera rig, wherein a vertical offset is changed via a change in the pitch setting, wherein, during the operation when recording the stereo film, a difference between the present zoom-results in the first sub-frame relative to the second sub-frame is measured and/or a vertical offset of the image points present in the first sub-frame in relation to those corresponding image points in the second sub-frame is measured and, on the basis of this information, correction values are calculated, with which the zoom difference and/or the vertical offset is reduced, given appropriate application to the zoom and/or pitch setting.

  • Publication number: 20140184752
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for controlling two cameras of a camera rig for shooting 3D films, wherein optimum values for the specific instant are used for a distance of the cameras from a point at which the optical axes of the cameras intersect, i.e. CVDopt, and for a distance of the optical axes of the two cameras from each other in the area of the cameras, i.e. IAopt. The invention further relates to a camera rig comprising two cameras for shooting a 3D film including a control for realizing such method.
