Here is part one of my 3D documentation of a silly and fun ‘Medieval Picnic’ hang in the park, with vaccinated friends, showing parts of the archery contests! I was thrilled I got the settings on my twin rig correct—and got them synced well enough—to capture the arrows in mid-flight!
What helped was that the arrows were very slow, hahaha. It’s a kids’ plastic archery toy set, with soft padding tied around what were originally suction-cup arrowheads. We dipped said pads in colored chalk dust, which then left erasable marks on a target. The weight of the pads also led the arrows to have extremely parabolic, lethargic flight paths.
Some stereos here also show the trick shot competition, including firing two arrows at once, and the behind-the-back special. I myself executed a side roll shot, during which I was naturally but unfortunately not behind the stereo cameras!
The videos here I made by extrapolating depth maps from the original stereopairs using StereoPhoto Maker/DMAG, and using the former’s handy feature of generating stereopair frames in this rotational pattern.
