3D DANCE VIDEO ‘NEW YORK’
With a pair of sunglasses, cover your LEFT eye with just one lens,
you will be able to see this video coming to life in 3D!
The technique is called the ‘Pulfrich Effect’.
(For the effect to work best – enable highest quality setting and watch at arms length)

The ‘Pulfrich Effect’… By keeping the camera in motion, moving anti-clockwise relative to the subject, the background appears to move from left to right, whilst elements in the foreground move right to left.
The sunglasses, or tint, causes the light to be slowed down through their left eye. This delay, along with the difference in apparent direction, creates the 3D effect in the viewer.
It works for around 90% of viewers, but generally doesn’t work for people with underlying eye difficulties and astigmatisms etc.
This effect has the advantage over other types of 3D effects as it is the only current 3D technique where the video is viewable simultaneously in either 3D or 2D.
