SMPTE: Disney Exec Howard Lukk Details 'Hybrid 3D' Test Shoot
HollywoodReporter.com reports that
Howard Lukk, Disney’s vp production technology, revealed Tuesday at the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers conference that the studio recently completed a three-day shoot in Berlin that tested a new approach to 3D production that he called “hybrid 3D.”
“Disney is continuing to explore better ways to capture, create and distribute quality 3D,” Lukk confirmed.
In lensing the short, with a working title Make/Believe, the team examined the potential to conduct a typical shoot while generating depth information for use in postproduction — effectively combining 3D cinematography with 2D-to-3D conversion.
