- Scaling - Evaluation of methods to achieve 3D delivery on multiple output devices
- Vergence/attention - Evaluation of the effect of convergence location on the salience of S3D content.
- Effects of exposure to S3D on ‘expert viewers’ (Ongoing, testing began end of July 2010)
- Effects of crosstalk on perceived depth from stereo and mono occlusions (study results presented at Stereoscopic Displays and Applications Conference 2011)
- Perception of reversed stereo
As part of the key activities of the consortium York’s Centre for Vision Research and Future Cinema Lab have devised a cyclical process of S3D film creation and applied vision research that investigates issues such as:
• estimating, measuring and compensating for the geometrical and perceptual effects of scaling from cinematic display to home theatre to desktop to mobile platforms, and
• evaluating the link between viewer locus of attention and plane at which cameras are converged in 3D images.
Centre for Vision Research resident investigators also support and offer consultation for production and workflow to 3DFLIC partners, and to the industry at large, presenting their findings at symposia, workshops and other venues.
In addition, the Future Cinema Lab is conducting research into the history and theoretical framework of S3D cinema in Canada. A digital archive of publications is underway.
