Anaglyph Stereoscopy in Excel – video preview

This is a video preview of a series of posts and models covering anaglyph stereoscopy applied in Excel. The following is a list of links internal to this blog covering the aforementioned topic: – a series of five tutorials in anaglyph stereoscopy leading to the creation of a 3D rotating cube(part#1, part#2, part#3, part#4 and part#5) associated to an Excel model. – Cosmos Naive, Anaglyph Charts Demo #1 and Anaglyph…

Anaglyph Charts Demo #2- an animated heat transfer model using a red-cyan wireframe chart

This is another basic demo investigating the feasibility of using anaglyph wireframes to plot scientiffic data. Open the attached worksheet and with your 3D glasses on, watch the chart. The data is a dynamic temperature map obtained from a 2D heat transfer model in a metal plate. The heat model is complete and you can run it with various parameters. You can hit “Start / Pause” and manually adjust the pitch and…

Anaglyph Charts Demo #1- creating 3D effects on charts using red-cyan elementary chips (sprites)

This is a basic demo investigating the feasibility of using anaglyph sprites to plot scientiffic data. Open the attached worksheet and with your 3D glasses on, watch the chart. The data results are various temperature maps obtained from a 2D heat transfer model in a metal plate. You have 4 different selectable mapps there but you can also invert the pattern using the “Flip” button. I find the 3D effect to be decent but not good enough…

Introduction to Anaglyph Stereoscopy in Excel – part #5: adding a joystick to control the yaw and pitch rates of the 3D cube

In this section, a joystick is added to the model which controlls the  yaw rate and the pitch rate (not the angles!) of the stereoscopic cube. This joystick was used before in a dedicated tutorial and in the flight simulator tutorial. Its importance in future models can not be underestimated, hence I decided to cover this virtual device again. Use your 3D glasses while running the mkodel.

Cosmos Naive – a very basic demo of anaglyph stereoscopy with sprites in Excel

Reach out for your 3D goggles because this is a representation of the Cosmos through the eyes of a 5-year old. The model displays a few objects at various depths and move two of them back and forth on a chart to demonstrate the stereoscopic effect. Though very simplistic it is an excelent example of anaglyph stereoscopy in action showing you how it’s built. The farther the red and cyan (turquoise)…

Introduction to Anaglyph Stereoscopy in Excel – part #1: a more efficient composite rotation in the 3D Cartesian space

I made a stereoscopic model in October last year, however, choosing the wrong colors (red and blue on a black background, the effect was very weak (if any). This series was suggested to me last week by one of the guests here on the website, Don L. (thanks Don!), who sent me his stereoscopic cube. I opened the model, put on my goggles and his cube literally popped out of the…
