/r/CrossView

Cross viewing is seeing 3D with nothing but your regular screen! The pictures here show two perspectives, just cross your eyes and make the two sides overlap to see the image in 3D. Tutorials and helpful apps on the sidebar/wiki/menu/about.

Accepting submissions of all forms (pictures, gif/gfys, videos). If things look 'reverse depth' then /r/ParallelView might be the place for you!

Cross view images, or side-by-side stereoscopy, is a cool way of seeing 3D pictures without needing technologically advanced screens or special glasses. Try this tester image in case things look "reversed" or weird to you (credit u/Logybayer). If parallel viewing is easier for you try our sister-sub /r/ParallelView/.

How To View:

Simply cross your eyes halfway between the pictures until both images overlap one another (3 images total), holding your view on the central image, and with a little patience, the image should 'push' into focus - you'll know it when you see it!

For YouTube videos: find the red 3D option, Select "No Glasses" and then select the "Cross Eyed" option underneath that.

Make Your Own!:

The simplest way to make your own cross view is to take one picture, move a little to the side, and take another, then put those pictures side by side. This is also known as the "cha-cha" method. Careful which side you put each image on! A few pointers:

  • When using the cha-cha method, it's best if nothing in the shot moves between each capture.

  • You'll want to move sideways somewhere between 1/30th and 1/12th of the distance to your subject.

  • Try to just slide sideways without turning at all.

StereoPhoto Maker is a great piece of software for combining pictures. Here is a basic tutorial of the useful features.

Macro photography: Sculptural painting (acrylic in clear gel)

My latest work in progress.

I create 'bubble sculptures' inside glass snowglobes filled with clear gel. I start by placing a drop of acrylic colors and mixed media in an air pocket in the center of the gel, covering it with more gel and sealing the globe. Then I shape the sculpture by directing force through the glass to maneuver air bubbles inside... The bubbles serve as my paint brush, moving colors as they travel.
