Stereoscopic Video flight Around Mt St Helens, Washington State, USA

Topographical data of Mt St Helens was taken from Digital Elevation Maps of the United States Geological Survey
Texture mapping was generated with Terragen. The great surface map settings were
created by (AFAIK) Kees Veenenbos His renderings are first class and the website is worth a visit!

The Stereoscopic camera (left/right eye) positions were calculated from an original CamPath
script using StereoScopic. Both programs written by Sean O'Malley.

The virtual camera separation was 10 metres / 33 feet
The Left/Right views were rendered separately, the BMP files were then combine into two
(left/right) AVI files with VirtualDub. An Avisynth script was then used to combine the two files
into a side by side crossed format, loaded into VirtualDub, frameserved to TMPGenc and saved
as an MPEG-1 file.
