Richard Kroon of
Technicolor has written a definitive dictionary of 3D Terms.
||3D A to Z
|Rick Baumgartner, 3D Visual Effects professional|
Every page brings either entirely new terms or causes me to rethink terms I
thought I already knew.
|Brian McFarlane, author of The Encyclopedia of British Film|
Richard Kroon's 3D A-to-Z takes on an astounding amount of information, and,
in language of admirable clarity, makes it accessible even to the
technologically challenged such as myself. 3D is a phenomenon that refuses to go
away and Mr. Kroon's book is an invaluable resource for those who want to know
how it works.
|Daniel Symmes, Past-President 3-D Film Preservation Fund and co-author of Amazing
Richard Kroon's tireless effort to tackle a very complex technical field
(stereoscopic imagery) is quite simply AMAZING. This should go a long way to get
some people to stop saying "interocular" when they are referring to
the distance between stereo lenses (the "interaxial"). Short tables of
terms have been seen in past literature but nothing like this. Anyone WRITING
about 3D should consult this work. Most journalists don't know right from wrong
in this field; this book can enable them to write accurate facts for a change.
Finally, the definitive dictionary of the stereoscopic (technical) arts.
|Bernard Mendiburu, author of 3D Movie Making and 3DTV and 3D
This book is a must. Either you get it, or you'll just fall flat.
|Christine Geraghty, Professor of Film and Television Studies, University of
If 3D is the future of screen media, then this is the handbook to guide you
through the technology. Wide-ranging and up to date, with clear illustrations
and diagrams. The definitions are crisp, authoritative and comprehensible even
to those without a science background.

Committee, Stereoscopic Displays and Applications IS&T/SPIE|
Many people in the industry are misusing or applying different meanings to
commonly-used words and terms in the field of stereoscopy. This has resulted in
a lot of widespread confusion and costly misunderstandings. Finally, we are
seeing the development of this much-needed reference that should go a long way
toward alleviating this problem.
