- 360° stereoscopic 3D Fractal Matrix VRFREE
360° VR + 180° stereoscopic 3D Fractal Animation made by Schizo. Rendered in 4K Ultra HD 2160p with Mandelbulb 3D V1.89 By default you can't create 360° stereoscopic 3D images or animations with the current version 1.91 of Mandelbulb 3D. The Problem: left and right eye images are stereo for front view, but flipped when you look backwards. Find a detailed explanation here: http://www.fractalforums.com/tutorials/t23857/ Well 180° stereoscopic fractals are still cool, but with a black back side a part of the VR feeling is lost. So I decided to live with a non-stereoscopic back side. To make this possible I blended the right eye image with the left eye image using a grayscale gradient image to get a smooth transition. So the left eye image is the original left eye image, but the right eye image is a combination of right eye image (front) and left eye image (back side). That way you have stereoscopic view in front (left+right) but not at back (left+left). It would be possible to combine 4 renderings Left-Front+Left-Back (quadrant LB3+LF2+LF3+LB2) and Right-Front+Right-Back (quadrant RB3+RF2+RF3+RB2) to a quite complete (not at sides) stereoscopic view, but that would require an extreme rendering time. I did the blending with python which is quite cool for such stuff. Rendering time for both eyes: 60days!
