Sample text

The lens focal length, the distance between the camera and subject, the screen size, and the audience’s distance from the screen can all contribute to the perceived volume. But the most important way to control volume is by adjusting the IA. IA creates volume. In this diagram, there are three pairs of cameras looking at a cube. Each pair of cameras (a black, green, and red pair) illustrates a different IA setting. These diagrams are exaggerated to illustrate how IA and volume are linked together.

Kuntz Put on your 3D glasses. This honeybee, photographed with a tiny IA, may appear gigantic. Regardless of the IA, it is already much larger than in real life so it automatically appears oversized. A big screen makes the bee even larger, but a small IA may add to the feeling that it’s gigantic. In general, gigantism is a subtle effect because audiences are culturally accustomed to oversized images on big screens in 2D and 3D. Close-ups of actors don’t make them look like giants. The opposite scale illusion occurs if the IA is too large.

The ball and head now have an exaggerated volume. They appear distorted or stretched in depth. This is called a shape or volume ratio greater than 1. In animation it’s called more than 100 percent or off-model volume. 52 An overly large IA can increase the volume of objects too much and they appear elongated. The amount of IA needed to create good-looking volume also depends on the focal length of the lens. 53 Put on your 3D glasses. All three pictures were taken with the same IA, but different focal length lenses.
