In this week’s episode we are at ILM talking to John Knoll about stereo. John supervised the conversion of Star Wars – Episode One: The Phantom Menace, and Mike sits down with him to discuss this and stereo 3D in general. John Knoll is one of the most respected VFX supervisors in the world, and from his work on Avatar and Phantom Menace his views on stereo are fascinating.
John comments on his approach to the stereo budget, floating windows, parallel vs. converged, shooting stereo vs. post-converting and gives his views on how other studios are solving these complex stereo problems.
