YOU BET! It’s always fascinating to go to a movie-theatre. The excitement of that much-awaited film, the trailers of soon-to-be releasing movies, the smell of yummy popcorns – all this definitely adds up to the fun. But what happens when you are going to the cinema to watch a 3D movie? Boy, we know your excitement knows no bounds!
But, hang on! Have you ever wondered how Avatar’s planet Pandora got so very real? Have you ever thought how your favourite 3D movies come to life? Well now, to understand this, let’s try looking at it this way: If you look at any object in the vicinity and close your right and left eye simultaneously, you’ll observe that each gives you a slightly different view of the same thing. Your right eye will see a bit more of the right side and so will be the case with your left eye.
Interesting, isn’t it? Well in doing so, your brain fuses the two images together which gives you a three-dimensional picture of the object you are looking at. To boil it down, 3D movies hoax your brain by bringing images projected onto a flat screen to life in complete three- dimensional glory.
In old fashioned 3D films, red and blue lens filters were used for each eye. Two different projectors were then superimposed to create images on the cinema screen. However, now polarized light is used instead of red and blue light in modern 3D films. Doing this, gives the creators an upper hand to eliminate the use of two separate filters and make full use of colour.
In modern time the two cinema reels project through different polarised filters. Images destined for your left eye are polarised on a horizontal plane, while images destined for the right eye are polarised on a vertical plane. For 3D films, the glasses created use the same polarizing filters to even out the two images and tricking the brain into seeing something as if it’s actually there.
