And now for something a bit experimental. I've been playing around with the latest in high tech VR technology. Google cardboard ( https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/ ). Gotta say it works really well for a cardboard box with a phone in it. This is my attempt at making the Team PoMoon animation a piece of VR hypnoporn for it. An example of science going too far if I ever heard one

I'm told some people can make these appear 3d by crossing their eyes but I never got that to work. But loading the image up on your phone and putting it into the cardboard should work great

Here's the APNG version. Android phones don't support APNG by default so I've been using the program Omni Gif to play it. http://i.imgur.com/tiD2yfg.png
Not much you can do about it as a mannipper; but the two pictures have too strong an angle difference from each other. Makes the two images when viewed overlapping conflict with eachother rather than merge together to form a 3D image.

Actually I'm the one who "angled" them. Are you using cross eyes or cardboard? It works great with the cardboard but maybe I can get away with more difference when using the hardware
I got it to work cross-eyed. Looks amazing!
I can get it to work somewhat cross-eyed as well, though the image is blurry for me that way. I guess my eyeglasses don't work too well when I'm not focusing normally. Probably would work great with cardboard though..
Have to agree with the others. This really is a hard to do Version of a cross eyed picture, but it works if you have some practice in it. Took me about 2 min to get it right. But it's still really hard to focus on even when you figured out how to look at it.

I'm doing it cross eyed; but I have experience doing that method. The problem is, a lot of parts in the picture that are given sharply different degrees of change are right next to each other.

For instance, if you use the top girl's spiral eyes to lock the picture into place you have the hand right next to it which suddenly appears to be far more out of focus than it should be. The hand is similar size to the other hands visible, so it looks like it should not be more than a few inches closer than the rest of the picture, but it is as out of focus as it should be if it was several feet closer.

Almost no spot on the picture I can find can be connected without having something right next to it more out of focus than it should be, which results in a lot of blurring, and a lot of phantom overlaps. It makes it rather unpleasant to look at.

A picture like this, http://static.fjcdn.com/large/pictures/bf/b1/bfb1ae_411754.jpg on the other hand has the differences very subtle, so while some spots may become out of focus as you look at other spots, they feel like they are out of focus by just the right amount and isn't distracting. With this one, I can lock the image into focus with minimal effort without any need to locate an exact shared detail.

Better? http://imgur.com/jgHQ2Xh

This is just turning down the depth from a maximum of 45 px difference to 15 px difference
Yeah I'm with Changer; the new version is better for cross-eyes.

Yeah, that version works considerably better. :)

What are you talking about, I can see your eyes crossed right there in your avatar! :P

Nah, you can practice crossing yoru eyes by focusing on your finger close to your face, then rapidly pulling it down out of view and holding your focus so that everything still looks split. It should be easier once you know what it feels like to manually cross and uncross them.

I share your problem. It makes my eyes feel weird/hella uncomfortable if I try

At all? Get yourself a cardboard! Its your manip and it'd be silly if you can't see it :-p

Cool. Good thing I made this so adjustable. In the future I might upload the cross eye version then link a more extreme cardboard version in the comments.

Anyone actually tried it with cardboard yet? Or even an oculus or gear vr lol
So I got lent the company Oculus Rift (DK1) today and just tried this out. Works well but eish, I think my phone has a better screen then the DK1. More comfortable then the cardboard though
