I agree that 3D has huge potential and is not a dead dud media.. The downside is, there are many technical issues, as well as skills and hardware issues... I mostly concentrate on the 3D objects for products after testing out 3D Panos.. There are other threads with this subject..; you might like to do a search.... I have Max, Maya and most of the other 3D high end software since as a teacher I get it all for free to use, but to create a 3D sceen with all the objects.... I would need a Mac Pro... emmm.. I can only dream on.. This Mac I use is not even mine, It belongs to my husband.. I never let him use it.
:lol: As soon as I can afford to buy a Mac Pro I will give the 3D media another test... but to be really honest, I would stick mostly with the 2D media and use my 35mm to create high quality 2D panos.. Unfortunately, I cannot use OUR iMac for this, its just not up to it, not enough RAM and I cannot add to it...
One advantage however in using 3D, would be that you can pluck out an object and rotate it as part of the scene.. This would be a very easy task and would look very cool..
I don't feel the interest in 3d is declining.Sales of 3d displays are rissing with high rates they are not the majority but its a big market.I have been using 3d for a long time and the wow i get from clients can't be achieved with 2d most people do like small kids when they put the glasses on.
