The Effects of Lenticular Printing for 3D and Flip

The third dimenstion refers to the depth of a printed image viewing at multiple angle changes. In 3D, the picture’s elements are positioned in different levels in order that an illusion of depth and perspective could be assigned to each of them. Unlike 2D design, using a lenticular effect adds reality to graphics.

Photographic 3D

A sequence of images is shot using any standard still or video digital camera, and then downloaded to the computer where the software generates the required views depending on the desired depth. Any single standard digital still or video camera can be used to capture the sequence. As always, the higher the camera quality is, the better the result will be. The photographer should use an arm to connect the camera to a tripod. The photos are shot by moving the arm in an arc motion. A professional photographer is needed only when a professional photographer would be used for 2D photo shoots. This 3D capture procedure may be used for a large variety of themes such as pack shots, architecture, and people.

Layered 3D

When a regular 2D image is separated into different layers, depth may be separately assigned to each of the layers to create a depth illusion. This is a good method to add depth to a computer generated image that was originally created using layers, or a 2D photo that have been manually separated into different layers.

2D to 3D conversion

HumanEyes’ latest technology enables to generate 3D images starting with any regular stock 2D photo/image. Using the HumanEyes 2D to 3D conversion method allows for an easy and fast process that does not involve highly time consuming tracing work. The HumanEyes 2D to 3D conversion module also provide users with easy to use tools to generate perspective and apply volume to flat images and elements.

'The Avengers' was converted into 3D after filming had finished.

The 2D to 3D conversion process maximizes the use of exiting image assets. Huge inventories of stock photography as well as customers’ existing assets can serve as fresh sources for amazing 3D creations. Photographic 3D is recommended when a new photographic session is feasible, whereas 2D to 3D conversion should be used when photographic 3D is not applicable.


A dramatic swapping of two or more images-each vanishing and then reappearing from one to another. Utilizing this lenticular technology flip effect is most beneficial for demonstrating “cause-andeffect” or even “before-and-after” comparisons. Flip is also a good way to deliver multiple messages within the same space.


Movement. Zoom. Rotation.

Lenticular Zoom Effect

Using a series of images coming together to create an animation much like a short movie clip. The illusion of motion actually comes from either a election of video frames or sequential still images. This lenticular animation effect is great for emphasizing body movement or mechanical action.
