Different viewpoints by a refractive index of a transparent panel
If left and right images of the object are acquired from the different viewpoints, the images can be alternately captured via the transparent panel, so as to produce a three-dimensional image of the object.
Changing the refractive index or the installation angle of the transparent panel
The three-dimensional moving image producing device can freely change the positions of the viewpoints. As a result, it is possible to guarantee an optimal distance between an object to be photographed and the viewpoints. This has the effect of producing a three-dimensional image without causing any fatigue to the user's eyes.
Change in the positions of the viewpoints
The change in the positions of the viewpoints can be accomplished by the transparent panel, differently from the prior art wherein two lenses should be located at left and right sides of the object for acquiring two left and right images of the object. This has the effect of reducing the diameter of a probe.
Adjusting the positions of the viewpoints
The three-dimensional moving image producing device is adapted to adjust the positions of the viewpoints via a conversion in a single bundle of incident light rather than separation of the bundle of light, for the purpose of acquiring left and right images from the single bundle of light. Further, as a result of using a single magnifying lens with respect to both the left and right images, the regulation of magnification can be simplified.
Transparent panel having a plurality of refracting parts
When using a transparent panel having a plurality of refracting parts having different refractive indices from one another, a plurality of images viewed from various viewpoints can be acquired, and a more actual image of the object can be acquired by combining the plurality of images with one another.
