The average eye-distance of an adult is 6.1 cm, whereas the eye-distance of children is only about 5 cm. We designed the stereo 3D for „Life of Trees“ with these numbers in mind. This resulted in a less strenuous, very comfortable stereoscopic effect, perfect for children and adults alike. So the whole family can experience the immersion in a smooth and comfortable way. Stereo 3D was already taken into account during the planning of the production.
Crucial processes like storyboarding or the creation of the animatics were always approached with the depth effect in mind. The stereo design of the shots was adjusted in a way that the depth matches, and cuts or transitions don’t stress the spectators. The stereoscopic effect of the scenes extends behind the screen as well as in front of the screen, producing a very harmonic spatial arrangement. This intensifies the immersion and produces a feeling of really „being there“.
