i3DSteroid: Make 3D photos with your smartphone and watch them with the viewer TOYin3D [3Dapp]

It seems incredible that you can make 3D photos and view them on your 2D mobile. Now this is possible with stereoscopic app i3DSteroid and TOYin3D universal 3D viewer. In a few simple steps  you will make spectacular 3D photos with your smartphone (only still photography) and also you can share with your friends.

For best results in shooting 3D we recommend using a tripod for mobile.

Once on the 3Dapp i3Dsteroid, take the first photo (left), move the camera a few inches to the right and take the second photo (right
Is ready!

Next Save it  and enter the smartphone in your universal viewer TOYin3D; Is not amazing 3D photography you have taken? Cool !

Share it on your social networks with your friends or with the ones that have a TOYin3D viewer  blow your friend away;-)

The latest application to be released by Masuji Suto is i3DSteroid . This is a three-dimensional application that allow one easily to take and view stereoscopic (3-D) images with your smartphone device using a 3D viewer TOYin3D.

i3DSteroid is a free application. It is a simple app that allows you to take a sequential Left and Right image, and it automatically aligns them and saves them as a parallel side-by-side stereo pair image that may be viewed on your mobile phone screen by free-viewing, or with viewing aids such as TOYin3D; 3D universal viewer for 2D smartphone.

To take a 3D image one opens the app, and then touches the camera icon in the lower right corner of the screen.

This opens up a camera composition view. Note the LEFT button in the lower right corner of the screen. Compose an image, and press LEFT. This takes your LEFT eye image, and retains a ghost image of it, while you are composing your right eye view. Note that the button in the lower right corner is now labeled RIGHT. Keeping the image composed as identically as possible to the LEFT view, move horizontally approximately 2.5 inches to the RIGHT and press the RIGHT button. You will then see on the top of the screen the word ALIGNMENT, with a series of steps that change until you see the word DEVIATION and a percentage. This is the app processing the two images and automatically aligning them in relation to each other for best and most comfortable 3D viewing. Deviation is simply a readout of how much the images were aligned.

Note that while moving horizontally 2.5 inches between taking the Left and Right images is average, one should decrease this distance for close-up images, and may increase the distance when EVERYTHING in the scene is far away (more than 10 feet). An old rule is to move horizontally about 1/30th of the distance from the lens to the subject. So, for an image 30 inches away you would move only one inch horizontally. For an image 30 feet away you could move 1 foot horizontally. Exact measurement is not necessary, and not possible if you want to quickly take a Left and then Right image. Experiment and then look at the results, and you will get a good idea of what works and what does not. When in doubt, guess and shoot.

The next step is to save the 3D image. Press the "open book" icon in the upper Left of the screen and a menu will pop up from the bottom. The top button of this menu is SAVE STEREO IMAGE. Press this, and it will save the image to your CAMERA ROLL as a parallel-side-by-side 3-D image, ready to view as already described. That's it!
