14th, 15th and 16th FPV helicopter flight Live video feed, video from onboard camera gets transmitted in real time to the video goggles. FPV= abbreviation for “First Person View”.

FPV Setup:
1,3 GHz 400 mW video transmitter and receiver from BEVRC (www.bevrc.com) with stock 3 dBi antenna (upper plastic casing removed, should be better for 1280MHz) on RX and small Lawmate 3 dBi antenna on TX
Video receiver powered with 11,1V LiPo battery
1,2 or 1,3 GHz transmitters are legal in Austria with Radio (Ham) License between 1240 and 1300 MHz up to 200W
I’m using channel 9 (1280 MHz)
WDR700 (= KPC-DNR700PHB) PAL camera (Sony Super HADII CCD), factory (= default) settings, I’ve tried other settings but default is the best in my opinion
Fat Shark RCV922 Aviator Edition video goggles
Microphone
Weight FPV gear: approx. 100 g
Powering the FPV gear with the 3s flight battery, ferrite ring used against interference (I had some brightness problems, much better now!)

FPV Recording:
Canon MVX200i Mini DV PAL Camcorder (DV-AVI, 720×576, 25 fps)
Deinterlacing with “Alparysoft Deinterlace” (Advanced method, ME search enabled) ,saved with “Cedocida DV Codec” and Virtual Dub
Editing with Ulead Videostudio 11
Compressing with Xvid, Single Pass, Quantizer 4 (approx. 55 MB per minute), MP3 256 kps CBR Stereo
This is the best possible quality in my opinion (with this camera, transmitter setup)

AUW 974 g
Maximum flight time (hovering, slow flying): 10 min. (260 mAh/min energy consumption)
Average flight time: 7 min.
Range: approx. 800m with this setup

Costs:
Heli, camera approx. 1000 Euro (special setup for hard 3D flight)
Altogether approx. 2500 Euro (Flight Simulator, transmitter, batteries, charger, video goggles, FPV video recorder….)

Typical crash costs: 50 – 300 Euro

Gigapixel 3D

Posted by admin | 3D Video,Gigapixel 3D | Sunday 10 April 2011 01:20

A gigapixel photo is a digital image bitmap composed of one billion (109) pixels (picture elements), more than 1,000 times the information captured by a 1 megapixel digital camera. Current technology for creating such very high-resolution images usually involves either making mosaics of a large number of high-resolution digital photographs or using a film negative as large as 12″ × 9″ (30 cm × 23 cm) up to 18″ × 9″ (46 cm × 23 cm), which is then scanned with a high-end large-format film scanner with at least 3,000 dpi resolution. As of 2011, only a few cameras are capable of creating a gigapixel image in a single sweep of a scene, such as the Pan-STARRS PS1 and the Gigapxel Camera (Wikipedia).

Gigapixel Wall below allows you to select and see remarkable images produced by gigapixel cameras:

News: First-Ever Adult 3D Movie Site Goes Live, Set to Revolutionize 3D Viewing on Personal Computers

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ — The adult entertainment industry is once again leading the way in the world of online entertainment. Today 3DCertified launched the most spectacular 3D adult website that is viewable to any computer user.

  • 3DCertified is the very first to bring quality High Definition 3D adult movies online. The 3D effect features both amazing depth and unbelievable pop, meaning even customers with regular computers can see the film stars emerge from their screen. All movies where shot using the stereoscopic method; this is the method Hollywood employs to produce eye-popping 3D movies.
  • Unlike hardcoded anaglyph movie files, 3DCertified utilizes the side by side encoding method, and then their sophisticated player produces the 3D in real time. 3DCertified works on all popular operating systems.
  • In the past year millions of consumers purchased 3D-ready computers. 3DCertified is also compatible with both polarized 3D computers such as the Acer 3D laptop, and also with computers utilizing the active shutter technology such as the Nvidia 3D-vision-ready systems.
  • What 3D movies did for the mainstream entertainment industry, it is set to do for the adult industry. It is no secret that 3D movies have generated over 3 billion dollars just in the past 12 months. 3DCertified allows any website owner to become an affiliate, allowing many to quickly profit off adult 3D.
  • 3DCertified made sure that its movies can be viewed on any computer. If a member does not have 3D glasses, they can request a free pair and it will be mailed to them anywhere in the world.
  • For those who complain 3D stresses their eyes, 3DCertified incorporated a convergence adjuster, allowing the user to control the strength of the 3D.
  • 3DCertified is making all of its content compatible with mobile devices; already they added some 3D content that you can view on your mobile device.
  • The consumer loves quality 3D and rightfully so. Properly shot and encoded 3D adult movies can significantly enhance the viewer’s experience.

About 3DCertified

  • 3DCertified films adult movies using the latest stereoscopic technology.
  • The unique playback process allows anyone with a computer to view the content.
  • All the models are famous adult film stars.

Adult 3D video is available in 3 different formats:

  • Anaglyph 3D. Watch it on any computer

One of the most popular industries today is animation. The field of computer graphics has come a long way if you start with the time where computer animation software are non-existent. In the market today, you will find a lot of animation software which could help you achieve new animation skills.

3d has invaded animation. With a lot of 3d animation in the market today, you will surely have edge if you can work with 3d stuffs with much ease and confidence. If you want to make use of the opportunities you can work with the 3d industry, you must acquire the necessary skills on how to create better looking animated characters on a 3d platform.

The uses of 3d animation software are important if you want to know more about animation skills. It is a fact that there are a lot of options and choices if you are trying to choose the best free 3d animation software.

One of the best things to do if you want to learn a lot of things about 3d animation is to choose the best software to compliment your yearning for the skills that you need in order to survive the tedious process of acquiring 3d animation skills. You need not to worry about spending so much on these animation software. All you have to do is search and surf through the internet. You can hit the search engines and start looking for the best source of free 3d animation software.

Before you start hunting for a free animation software, you need to consider some important things. Perhaps these salient points can guide you in choosing the best software for all your 3d animation needs. Keep in mind that in order to find the best deals on these free software for 3d animation, you need to ask yourself questions on functionality, purpose and features that you would need.

Assess the entire animation skills that you would want to learn. Verify the offered functionality and tutorial stuffs for the software that you have chosen. In this way, you can shortlist the options that would fit what you need and prefer.

3d animation software which are for free may vary in levels of complexity and range of skills development. You will still experience jaw dropping animation and graphics tutorial even for the simplest low end software you might find for free. You can perhaps explore trial versions of 3d software animation tools. In this way, you will have a better feel of how your chosen software can fit your needs!

3D Youtube

Posted by admin | 3D Video,Youtube | Wednesday 7 April 2010 11:18

Youtube has recently added support which enables users to watch the videos in 3d, of course the uploaded video should have been taken from both left and right angels so that it can work with 3d. You can watch this video for example but you would also need 3D glasses to find if it really works.

Watch you tube in 3D

How to enable 3d in You tube ?

This was answered by one of guys in You tube forums and this is how it goes like :

  1. &yt3d:enable=true Enables the view mode. (obviously you’ve already discovered this)
  2. &yt3d:aspect=3:4 Sets the aspect of the encoded video.
  3. &yt3d:swap=true Swaps the left and right sources.

You will need to add this at the end of the url in address bar of the browser you are using i.e. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihvhIPHiDNg&yt3d:enable=true.

This also enables few more options for choosing different colour scheme, parallel, cross eyed, mirror split along with left and right views only.

Now lets see if the You tube videos come up with a 3D icon like it came for HD videos. This will make it easy for users to find if they videos is available in 3D also.
