The poor mans motorized 3D glidecam solution....
Hi, sorry about my bad english, i´m from Germany / Munich.
So here first tests with a motorized Beamsplitter-Rig for the Glidecam 4000 and other systems for a max. weight of 4.5 KG
Remote via 40MHz Remotecontrol so i can adjust the interocular distance between +/- 90 mm.
The preview Monitor you can see is a typical SD-TV-Monitor.
Each camera has a videotransmitter for 2.4 GHz, sending the videosignal to a laptop, and the laptop sends an anaglyph (or other 3D-formats)-signal via videotransmitter to the monitor.
During this test the mirror was broken :-(( because there was a failure in the construction, so i have to fix it, and many other bugfixes i have to do.
The weight is acutally exact 4.5 KG (with all components including cameras). Using other sleds and components the system can reduce the weight without cameras to ca. 2.5-3 KG.
Not implemented at this time are lightshields, and the area around the cameras of this box are currently open.
In a later version we will implement levellers for the cameras that we can adjust the angels and rotations.
The goal is to create a BS-Rig for small Glidecams like the Glidecam4000 Pro and with low costs. This system is not accurate exact, the final stereoscopic image comes out later in NUKE with Ocula.
But its only a prototype.
