/ It's time for a new decade. Let's start the year with something simple and fun. This artwork is to commemorate the year twenty-twenty.
Fun fact: It's been a century since 1919, the year number repeats. The next one will be in 2121, which will take us another hundred years!
The 3D photo is available to play on our Facebook page.
The "ๆ" (maiyamok) is the repeat symbol in the Thai language
20ๆ : 2020
/ The 3-dimensional effect that you see actually originates from 2-dimensional images.
However, the 3D effect occurred because Facebook can calculate, combine, and map the depth of grayscale images.
The way we tinker with the system is by creating 2 images. One which represents the base color and texture that you see and the other, a grayscale image which represents only depths
/ To produce the 2 images that were needed, we first designed the 3D model in separate software. This allows for full control and a deeper level of customizations.
The depth level that you see on the 3D photo is approximately similar to here.
One model is for color and the other for rendering to create a foreground and background that form the depth map for an image.
The 3D photo was automatically compiled on Facebook by uploading the two images. /
