Another 3D gallery from Jezero Crater, Mars, straight from Perseverance Rover!… The first scene is a distinctive rock that I spotted in NASA’s raw image archives and recognized from an Instagram post by Dr. Brian May, which he adapted from a stereo assembled by Claudia Manzoni. These two stereovideos show a complementary wider view around that rock, followed by terrain map-like stereo I made for fun.
The second scene shows two different stereovideo close-ups of rocks around the Rover, and the third a Martian dune, again with two different stereovideos.
Technical details: the original images were taken by the rover’s Mastcam-Z color stereocamera; I aligned them in Masuji Suto’s StereoPhoto Maker and edited and cropped them. The videos of the 1st and 3rd scenes were produced in 2 halves with the 3D-Photo-Inpainting AI, using depth maps extrapolated from the original stereopairs using SPM and Ugo Capeto’s DMAG. The 2nd video I made with FFMPEG. The terrain map-like image I made by applying the Viridis color palette to a blend of the occlusion maps and DPS first-pass depth maps from SPM/DMAG.
