I once worked with a person who was blind in one eye and could see in 3D, but he had to constantly move his head left and right to get the jiggle between two perspectives. Just to test this out at the time, we had him judge distance between objects, and he was spot on. He said he could see space between objects. The brain is quite remarkable.
As for the sequential 3D method. I used that in pics I took in Africa. The Panasonic z100 has a slow 4k shutter mode to take a series of photos as if you are shooting a movie, but each image is a quick shutter to avoid blur. I took pics out the window as we were moving through local towns, then in post editing selected consecutive frames and aligned them in StereoPhotoMaker software. Worked perfectly, but sometimes objects would move slightly between frames. I never thought of creating a movie sequence doing this. I will have to try that--thanks, Don.
As for movies, even with some 3D movies still being shown, they are only shown for a week around here, then only in 2D after that. All IMAX is now in 2D, but I did manage to see Endgame in IMAX 3D here several months ago, but have to say, there were very few people in the theater, and that was sad because there are limited theater rooms in a multiplex, and they can't afford to have one of the theater rooms barely breaking even as they have to pay someone to run that room regardless of the audience. When they showed the 3D conversion of the original Jurassic Park several years ago, there were only 3 people in the IMAX room watching at that time.
