eugh - surely that's going to look ropey ... I don't know much about 3D to be perfectly honest and have only watched a tiny bit of rugby via Sky. The effect on high wide shots was virtually nil, but the pitch-side stuff was terrific. I imagine the same was true of last night, though I noticed the director included chandeliers and so-on in the foreground of the high shots so presumably that was to help the effect.


You were watching on BBC One with the BBC One director, presumably BBC HD 3D had their own director taking different shots, shots that would work better in 3D.

I wonder if all cameras covering the dance floor were 3D cameras and either director could take the shots or if there was HD and 3D cameras and the whole 3D operation was completely separate to the HD coverage.

I'd like to see both versions side by side.


One of my colleagues was helping NEP Visions with the 3D set up, I'll see him on Wednesday, so I'll find out what the arrangement was.


Right, finally seen him

8 3D rigs, in most cases the 2D output took the left channel. Notable exception was the 'Tess Pit' where a sepatate position for 3D was used, because of complications with the Autoscript. The angle was such that all the stage hands could be seen in the background resetting the stage between each dance Confused
14 2D channels available, The non 3D rig derived feeds were assigned through two 3D simulators.

CTV looked after the 2D output, Visions looked after 3D. Beeb production staff manned the operation.

Thanks for taking the time to research and post this. If the Tess Pit was done from two positions, wouldn't Daly appear to be looking at the 'wrong' camera on the 3D feed?

I can confirm this to be the case. She was looking off to the right somewhere.
