Which deviation is the best?

Deviation is the image offset between two images that together make up a 3D photo. With anaglyph images you can see it clearly at the red and blue image offset. If the image offset is very low, then the depth effect is low. Ist der Bildversatz sehr breit, dann ist die Tiefenwirkung sehr hoch. The optimum deviation depends on the size and spacing of the 3D image by looking at it. The following picture series shows different deviations in 20 steps.


You can clearly see the phenomenon of deviation when you zoom in or out. A small image requires a wider deviation, while a narrower deviation is more appropriate for a large image. The deviation is measured in the fraction. The value of the fraction is the width of the deviation in the ratio of the total picture.

For a 3D television, a deviation of 1/30 of the overall picture is best suited and is the best compromise for all media.

How can you measure the deviation in the picture?

  1. Export the 3D image as an anaglyph.
  2. Find a far point in the photo and measure the distance from the red image and the blue image in pixels.
  3. Share the value with the width of the entire image. The result is the deviation in the fraction.

Example: You have a picture with the total width of 1920px and measured a red / blue offset of 64px. Then in 1920, divided by 64, it is equal to 30. The deviation would therefore be 1/30 of the overall picture.
