What is a 3D film?
3D technology has given more life and excitement to the film industry. A 3D (three dimensional) film is a motion picture which has to do with the enhancement of depth perception (the ability to see the world in three dimensions). In 3D films, the movie characters seem to “jump off” the screen and appear to be very realistic to its viewers, as if they were also included in the film or interacting with the characters. With its rising popularity, 3D films are growing in numbers. To make the effect more realistic, movie goers are provided with 3D glasses.
How does it work?
3D films are made possible with the use of 3D glasses. These glasses are made of red and blue lenses. In order to make the illusion work, 3D glasses feed different images into your eyes. With these glasses, you will feel like you are part of the action. 3D movies are done with the use of two side by side lenses and when the two videos are simultaneously projected; your brain does the visual illusion of a 3 dimensional image with the use of 3D glasses. When a character is shooting a gun, you would feel like you were the one who is being shot. When a plane is crashing, you also feel like you were inside the plane which gives a more intense emotion during the action. You are not just simply watching the film; you will feel like you were with the characters in everything they do in the film.
