Learn to use Camarada to take 3D and depth photos to share with anyone, even if they don’t have a 3D device

You already know Camarada to record 3D video using 2 mobiles. Today we will tell you another new feature that comes to make up for the disappearance of Seene and its main lack: the ability to share images with anyone, even if they don’t have a 3D screen. This function does not need to join two smartphones (although if you do you will get a better 3D image and without moving the device).

Before using the App let’s check this quick hands on video:


Once the program is open it’s a good idea to go into the settings to configure the options that suit us best, although some require you to have a premium account, but you can also use the application for generating 30-second videos instead of animated GIFs. To start touch the lower button to access the camera and once opened make sure it is in Solo mode (you will see a button that you can switch between Dual and Solo). To make the image with depth just slide the device to the right while holding down the capture button, note that the capture time is always 2 seconds. So calculate the move you want to make. As in the case of manual 3D photos, you have to take into account the distance to the closest objects, the one who has taken manual 3D photos already knows more or less what distances are adequate between the left image and the right image. Here is a sample of what happens in Camarada if we do not take into account the distance of objects with the amount of displacement during the 2 seconds of capture:

Such a bad result is our fault for having made the mobile movement too long.

We see distortions at the edges of image and objects. In this case, as we were a few centimeters away from the objects, we imagined that we would need a 3D camera with only a few millimeters of separation, so we repeated those 2 seconds of movement and this time we only moved our device a few millimeters, less than 5 millimeters. Once the photo has been taken we press the eye icon on the top to select what type of image we want to see (and share), in this case GIF, but we can create a real 3D image on SBS or anamorphic SBS for 3D TV, or even see it in 3D on the mobile itself with a Cardboard or Virtual Reality viewer. While watching the GIF we can easily adjust the speed of movement (usually, the slower, the better the result), the pivot point for movement (if the main object is not in the center) and other interesting settings such as add blur or even a frame. On a few seconds you can get images as impressive as this frame flooding a 3D image:

Ooh!
