I've just signed up for these forums in hopes that I might gain a little more information on 3D filming. I apologize in advance if anything is a re-post, but I couldn't find much of what I was looking for in other threads.
I'm an intern working on a project that is going to be shot in 3D, and everyone else on the project is very unfamiliar with the technology. While we have the basics figured out, we are struggling with one shot: an extreme close-up of two insects on a leaf. It would be part of a shot in which we tracked into the close up. We realize that a beam splitter rig is what we need, but in terms of the close-up, how can we prevent any jitters? We're afraid that even a slight breeze will cause the camera to shake when at such a close distance.
The second problem we've run into is the issue of lens choices. In going with a master diopter I'm afraid that it's shallow depth of field would clash with the 3D effect. What are some lens choices for he type of shot we are trying to achieve?
If someone could take the time to explain this in layman's terms, or point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. And again, I apologize for any re-posts, I'm new to this forum.
