Fractal Matrix - 360 & stereo 3D - Mandelbulb 3D fractal
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: Hello Friends of Order and Chaos,

because of improvement of technology the possibilities for mankind raise and raise. I would call the last year the beginning of Virtual Reality. YouTube starts it's 360 mode - even stereoscopic. facebook also can play 360 content. VR communities grew like mushrooms and a lot of devices are now available ranging from ultracheap cardboard to Oculus Rift.

Jesse was prophetic and included a 360 Panorama camera mode in Mandelbulb 3D. Mandelbulber can also render 360 content. So Julius, Don, some others and myself started creating the first 360 VR videos with Mandelbulb 3D or Mandelbulber. It is just another level of media when you can decide in which direction you are viewing and when the fractal world is all around you.

So my entry for this year had to be a 360 fractal. More by accident I surfed a very old hybrid (Amazing Box, MengerIFS, _AmazingBoxSSE2) from my first animations and found an object that was quite suitable for a 360 animation because there is action all around you. Beside that it was possible to add a cool morphing by modulating MengerIFS CScale Z parameter even when zoomed far inside.
The result is an animation with 5325 frames of 3840x2160 pixel and Antialias 2 (so rendered at double size). Rendering time about 5 minutes/frame or 20 days for complete animation.

Well, 360 is cool. But much cooler would be 360 in stereoscopic 3D! So what happen, when you turn on "360 Panorama" as camera mode and check "Render stereo animation" option in the Animation maker?
First results looks promising. When combining the left and right 360 images via StereoPhotoMaker then red parts were always left to matching the blue parts. Crossed eye view check with right image on left side and left image on right side looks good, at least in the center (later front of the 360 view).
But after discussing the topic at facebook and doing two testvideos Julius Horsthuis gave the hint that you get a stereo image on the back, but it is flipped. So when you wear red-cyan glasses you have to turn them around. At the sides there is no stereo effect, so only front view is correct.
So "Good bye" to fractals in 360 stereoscopic 3D?
I hope not.
Some thought loops about the problem and some raw tests later I had a solution to create at least 360 stereoscopic 3D images. So this proof of concept works and it should be quite easy to implement this feature as a new camera mode.
I have started a new tutorial topic about the processing pipeline here: http://www.fractalforums.com/tutorials/t23857/

Because such a 360 stereoscopic 3D does not exist for now I can't render my animation that way. So I had to split it in a normal 360 version and a slideshow with the 360 stereoscopic 3D images that I have created with the new method. Rendering time for each image was about 2 days, so just 1920p quality.
Just for completeness I also add here the flat / non-injected 4K version of the 360 animation, so you can see the complete fractal at once.

Hi Philippe, well the forum player can't play 360 stuff (I think it needs the HTML5 and not the flash player). So view the videos directly at YouTube for the 360 experience. Links below the videos.

Interesting. I feel bad that I have now special equipment to fully emerge in the 360 3D world.


A friend with a good smartphone and a cheap google cardboard are already quite cool.


Oops. Not "now", but "no". The correct is: "I have no special equipment..." I didn't think about the Google cardboard at all. You are quite right. I should try it.

BTW, when I look backward, the scene disappears and blurs-out quite fast. Looking forward is much more colourful and picturesque.


Yep thats right. Next time I will add another light at backwards view. When it is less dark then also compression (blur-out) is not so strong. Doing the lightning in a 360 view is a bit tricky because you need several lights and the backward view is spread at left and right side.

@Sabine: Danke  wink

Thank you Caleidoscope and stardust.  A Beer Cup
Yeah 360 has some fascinating features. Pause and looking around is cool or you can see the video several times and explore different views each time. Fractals are good for 360 animations because there is no plot you have to follow and that bounds your focus. With 360 fractals you are free  grin

That is amazing! You can pause anywhere within the video and just look around!  champagne toast
