3D Gallery

This gallery shows a collection of 3D images taken by Andrew Woods in various weird and wonderful locations. All images were captured by 3D video cameras developed at Curtin University of Technology's Centre for Marine Science and Technology.

Technical Introduction

Three different image formats are provided: These images need to be viewed through the appropriate 3D glasses to be seen in 3D!


Description of Images

Images 01 to 19 were filmed with the Underwater Stereoscopic Video Camera developed by Andrew Woods at Curtin University of Technology. The images were filmedat an Offshore Gas production platform off the North-West coast ofWestern Australia. The platform is called the North Rankin A and is operated by Woodside Offshore Petroleum. The camera was fitted to an Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) which is basically an unmanned remotely controlled underwater robot. These images show thewide range of fish life which lives around the platform and the wide range of marine growth which grows on the platform (soft and hard corals,oysters, etc). Every few years it is necessary to clean the platform structure of marine growth (because it adds weight and tidal resistance to the platform and prevents visual inspections of the structure's integrity) and this is done with another ROV called the Scimitar. Several shots of the Scimitar are shown. This ROV clamps around tubular sections of the platform and a cutter is lowered which cuts away the marine growth. To give a sense of scale, the wheels of the Scimitar ROV are approximately 0.8 metres in diameter. The Scimitar is very popular with the fish because the cutting up of the marine growth makes a lot of instant food for the fish as can be seen in some of the images. Images 16-19 show the manipulator arm being used from the ROV we are filming from. The manipulator is used to perform a large range of underwater tasks on the platform. These images were filmed in water depths down to 125 metres.

Images 21-34 were filmed in an underground mine in North-Eastern Australia. The particular shaft these images were filmed in is 1km underground. The images were filmed with a 3D video camera mounted on a front-end-loader. The front end loader is used to move ore from the ore face at the end of the tunnel and tip it down a shute (shown in image 34) which goes to a conveyer which takes the ore to the surface.

(Sorry... I haven't converted all of the following images to JPS and anaglyph formats yet.
Some are presently only available as 3D row-interleaved (interlaced) GIFs.
I will be converting them all eventually...

Images 36-41 were filmed at Kings Park which is located right beside Perth's city centre. Perth is the capital of Western Australia. These images were again captured with a 3D video camera developed by Curtin University of Technology.

Image 42 was taken at one of the University's Open Days where the University is opened to the general public for all range of demonstrations. The image you are looking at is exactly what the little girl is seeing on the stereoscopic display monitor in the bottom right of the image. She is trying to catch the small brownball which appears to be coming out of the screen.
