(ACB) 3-D is a patented anaglyphic imaging method where the color records of the stereo pair are adjusted to prevent retinal rivalry. Selective color adjustments enable hue contrasts from the original image pair to be viewed within allocated color channels. The (ACB) method provides bright dynamic stereoscopic 3-D anaglyphs for still or motion pictures with stable balanced contrasts percieved in color without anaglyphic retinal rivalry.

AN ANAGLYPHICALLY VIEWED CONTRAST BALANCE IS ACHIEVED FROM COLOR OR B&W STEREO PAIRS.
(ACB) retains the contrasts and details from the stereo pair within the color channels and achieves an anaglyphic contrast balance every time to make stable convincing anaglyphic 3-D images. (ACB) enables instant and perfect results without trial and error for monitor displayed and printed anaglyphs and also anaglyph 3-D movies.

One click anaglyph production with the (ACB) 3-D Photoshop action set now also includes Black and White (ACB) imaging and LR stereo pairs converted to (ACB) Anaglyph.

    (ACB) serves these functions.
  1. To equalize anaglyphically viewed contrast/brightness between corresponding areas of the stereo pair.
  2. To cause details and graduations of tones from the full spectrum to be presented to each eye.
  3. To adjust colour hues to compensate for being viewed through coloured gel.
  4. To assign degrees of contrast adjustment appropriate to the method of color channelling used.
  5. To effect control of the overall brightness of the resulting anaglyphic image.

(ACB) 3-D. Anaglyphic Contrast Balance. No retinal rivalry.

(ACB) 3-D IS AN ACCESSIBLE MULTI-MEDIA 3-D METHOD. IT'S SUPERIOR STEREOSCOPIC IMAGING QUALITY MAKES (ACB) 3-D THE BEST OPTION FOR 3-D PUBLISHING.
(ACB) 3-D is multi-media 3-D. It can be monitor displayed, printed or projected. (ACB) 3-D involves low cost viewing gel and does not require modifications to existing viewing systems. This gives (ACB) 3-D images the advantage for low cost, consumer freindly and accessible commercial 3-D.
Color anaglyphs have been possible prior to Patented (ACB) but there had been difficulty with anaglyphically perceived retinal rivalry over the brightness of hue contrasts between the left and right views and also double imaging. Because of this, anaglyphs have most often been produced as monochromatic to be perceived as black and white.
Patented Anaglyphic Contrast Balance (ACB) has addressed these matters in anaglyphically viewed color 3-D images to enable an improved bright register with dynamic and balanced contrasts percieved in color.

Licensing is available for (ACB) use in Anaglyph Making Software.
Commercial use of the (ACB) production method and the images produced requires licensing.


OTHER PATENTED EMBODIMENTS 0F (ACB) 3-D
Modulating (ACB) Anaglyph
(ACB) anaglyph record consisting of field speed alternations of opposing color channel presentations are viewed with synchronous electro-optic/anaglyphic viewers for a delivery of full color to each eye without the strobe or flicker associated with electro-optic shutters, as each eye has a continuous view. Modulating anaglyphs can be converted from 3-D to 2-D and be viewed in full color or black and white.
Quadrascopic (ACB) 3-D.
The separation of four visual channels from a two dimensional surface such as print or monitor display. An observer may receive concurrent and interactive perception of vertical, diagonal and horizontal parallax with motion via parallax delivery and anaglyphic means. Quadrascopic Anaglyphs can also be modulated for full color.
(ACB) Autostereoscopic/Anaglyph is a quadrascopic system that enables a choice between two autostereoscopic programs from one image signal which can be modulated for full color strobeless delivery without need of viewers. Quadrascopic systems require modifications to existing display apparatus.
However, traditional anaglyphic display with the color spectrum divided between the stereo pair (spectral split) is readily suited and convenient for (ACB) 3-D printed images and for monitor viewing of (ACB) 3-D anaglyphic movies or still (ACB) 3-D images as are presented here at STUDIO 555 via patented (ACB) 3-D imaging



    PRIOR ART IN ANAGLYPH PRODUCTION HAS INVOLVED VARIOUS METHODS CATEGORIZED HERE;
1
Monochromatic black and white anaglyph
2
Red / Green-Blue Color anaglyph
3
Half Color anaglyph
4
Grey Scale Left anaglyph
5
See Red anaglyph

  1. Monochromatic (black and white) Anaglyphs.
    Both views are desaturated to black and white. One is then saturated red, the other either green or blue. Other colours may used.
  2. Colour, R/GB Split Anaglyphs.
    A. One view is saturated red. The opposing view green-blue.
    B. The red colour plane of one view replaces the red colour plane of the other view.
  3. Half Color Anaglyph.
    Blends of monochromatic and colour versions such as 50/50 colour/monochromatic.
  4. Gray Scale Left Anaglyph.
    A combination of the above where the left view is desaturated to black and white and then saturated red. The right view is saturated green-blue.
  5. Altered RGB colour channels (planes)
    Impure color channel displays, and or cyan viewing gel that pass red.

Method 1 results in a monochromatic / black and white image.
Method 2 clearly demonstrates retinal rivalry.
Methods 3 and 4 result in degrees between methods 1 and 2.
Method 5 persues color perception at the expense of reduced stereo separation to hide the resulting double imaging (ghosting).
None of the above achieve a balance of anaglyphically perceived contrasts. However, (ACB) 3-D Anaglyph Imaging Does.
