Designed by veteran stereographers, these versatile 3D Rigs produce incredible, eye-catching stereoscopic images for a fraction of the cost of other 3D systems. Click on the photos below to discover the 3D Rig for your stereo production needs. Click Here to see 3D demos shot with our 3D Rig.
About the 3D FILM FACTORY
Since 2008 the 3D Film Factory has been the leader in professional, affordable 3D camera rigs and 3D production monitors. We’re also a full-service 3D production company that offers 3D rig rental, stereographers ‘for hire’, and 3D post production, as well as intensive 3D training workshops. Our veteran stereographers are some of the best in the World and they’ve filmed stereoscopic 3D projects for major clients on almost every continent. Our clients include Disney, ESPN, NASA, Discovery Channel, Honeywell, USC Film School and many others.
Developed by award-winning filmmakers and veteran stereographers, our line of 3D beam-splitter (mirror box) and side-by-side rigs offer filmmakers a viable alternative to a high-priced, behemoth 3D rig, costing ten times as much and more. A 3D Film Factory rig is lightweight, precise and features unlimited alignment and XYZ axis control, allowing users to create perfectly aligned 3D images.
“Since 2008 our goal has been to proliferate 3D to ALL filmmakers, not just the James Camerons of the World“, said company operations manager Shawn Gilmore. “Our goal is to make a quality 3D rig that every filmmakers can afford. We're succeeding, because today our 3D rigs create fantastic stereoscopic images and they’re affordable.”
The 3D Film Factory’s rigs are designed to accommodate a wide range of professional HD cameras, including Red One, Epic, Sony F3, EX3, Canon 5D, 7D, XF105’s, XF305’s, XH-G1, Pansonic, Arri’s Alexa, and a broad range of camcorders, compact HD cameras and all the DSLR cameras.
The beam-splitter rigs (mirror box) are fully adjustable, allowing users to have total control over convergence settings (1° to 5°), inter-axial (camera-to-camera) distances (0” to 6”) and complete yaw, tilt and roll (XYZ axis), for perfect 3D alignment. The black anodized aluminum frames are virtually indestructible, yet completely modular. The side-by-side systems are easy-to-use, fully adjustable and offer inter-ocular distances of 30” or more.
At the center of the 3D rig is the mirror box with its optically engineered, 50/50 beam-splitter glass. It’s fully encased in high-grade, specially formulated foam plastic, that’s light-dampening, detachable and cooler than sheet metal or carbon fiber boxes. Finally, the entire rig readily attaches to most professional tripod heads with a simple aluminum tripod adapter (¼-20 & 3/8- 16 screws).
The result is the World’s most affordable, professional line of stereoscopic beam-splitter and side-by-side rigs. Together they make 3D filmmaking precise and amazingly simple. When combined with a 3D production monitor, cinematographers can capture extraordinary, eye-catching 3D images for a fraction of the cost of other options.
