Photographer Turns Drone Shot Into a Facebook 3D Photo | Facebook's brand-new 3D Photos attribute is made for images recorded utilizing the deepness map-based Picture setting in the most recent smartphones. Digital photographer Oat Vaiyaboon exceeded smartphones and also turned a DJI Mavic Pro drone picture right into a Facebook 3D Picture by developing his own deepness map.

" I thought I would try developing my really own custom-made depth map in PS and afterwards modify the image along with Deepness Electronic camera on iOS," writes Vaiyaboon, that goes by hangingpixels online. "Each component (layers) requires to be selected and also transformed to greyscale separately with differing opacity making use of alpha networks-- foreground is 100% black, mid ground is 80% grey, formation is 60% grey, etc.

" This deepness map has 10 distinctive greys-- lower high cliff, mid high cliff, rock wall surface, ground behind the wall surface, me, rock in the center, rock in the back as well as 3 degree of water (ridges, normal and trough).".

After creating the deepness map in Photoshop, Vaiyaboon runs the initial photo and the depth map with an iOS depth map editor called Deepness Camera to develop a single JPEG file that contains depth metadata.

When that image is posted to Facebook, the 3D Photos function translates it as a conventional Picture mode style picture and also makes it interactively viewable.

Here's the airborne 3D photo that resulted (try interacting with it to view it with a 3D effect):.

The above process is tedious: it takes Vaiyaboon about a hr to develop as well as fine-tune the deepness map for each picture.
