3d Layering to 4d Video Experience

The big question in mind is how do we enjoy 4D rendered footage. Theoretically 4th Dimensional Videos are videos that is shot either in two angles or 2 types of exposure and is merged into one to be watched or percieved. 4d footage is not enjoyable layers of footage or imagery can create confusion towards the perceiver or watcher. 

Here is an example of a 4d footage. This type of footage works for video presentations and marketing reels and stock footages.

It is very confusing to watch. Inverted media with low saturation layered upon tweaked white balance and tint creates good imagery but is very confusing. The problem I want to solve is How do we fix the problem of confusion? One solution is to seperate the layers and display it in two windows. Video directors see the screen this way but usually this is for production purposes not as a final cut or for broadcast, some music videos do display this but it is for adding ornamental elements to the music rather than giving context and meaning. The confusion problem still remains but it is lesser. 


I think the entertaining factor in the 4d experience of video is the power of choice, you have 2 types of exposures or even more and the watcher could decide to focus on an element of the video rather than the whole. Left media or right media? Top media or bottom media? The perceiver decides. The power of 4d is more experiential and choice driven. 

Is 4d film making ideal or 4d production styles ideal for mass media consumption? I am still observing what can happen in the future. Stimuli, stimuli and more stimuli!

The magic of 4d media is you can experience the scenario in a more expansive way implying that the footage 1 played with footage 2 is happening at the same time just like a CCTV. Layering both creates a merged imagery that is confusing, seperation of footage creates a choice driven experience. Having the choice to look at the point of view of 1 can make you interact mentally with the footage by taking your eyes to footage 2 when action happens. This is entertaining to watch but is kind of overloading the brain with information. Video directors and security people can handle this much information but the normal viewer I think cannot. It is up to the future of watching media to decide if people are ready for this type of style of publishing media. 


I can say that the industry does put Augmented Cinema as a 4d experience. Augmenting the experience via VR or diversed theater experience can create that pheriperal choice I said earlier, this style fixes the confusion by putting a parallel experience based on a 3d film footage. If 4d cinema is Augmented reality designed as a parallel then this will fix the confusion problem, moving towards a different view of 4D but with similarities can work. Cinematic 4D can be different to Psychaunatic 4D.  I ate and Shit at the same time merging back to sitting and watching TV that is 4d to me augmenting my eating by expanding experiential stimuli of my eating alone can be a start in exploring 4D. Can we argue with the industry standards? Yes we can. 

Can we win? Nope cause we are all contributing factors towards this evolutionary way of displaying images and sounds. We all win in the end. 

Catching Covid 19 A 10 day Quarantine Boredom

I am writing this 8 days after quarantine. I tested positive of Covid 19. I took up some meds and a lot of sleep.  I will describe my experience using photos taken by Oppo Reno 6.

I first had my symptoms thiking it was just a common flu, I took some medicine and went on doing what I do. I even did an unboxing of a 50w light bulb explaining the big difference in perception and exposures. 

50 Watts

Having some dry cough and stuffed nose being noticed by my mother she deicded to persuade me to take a test. It turned out positive and by then I needed to go to quarantine. 

Getting stuck inside a house with no computer and just having a mobile phone sucks. It is good that I also had my guitar with me at the 5th day during quarantine time. 

Dizzy waking states are present during covid, I felt like having a huge cloud up my head, I feel this when there is a heavy density of 4G or 5G waves. It is more intesne when you have COVID 19. Dehydration is alse present. Oxygen intake is best. 

Days of rest water and meds fixed it, on my 8th day I tested negative. 

Having covid is not an eye opener or a life changing event it is more like that times are changing and what can we do? Endure? The feeling sucks and I learned no lesson at all it was like a big bundle of further confusion about nature and the future of biology and health. Also my moles started to pop out all over my body. 

For everyone to have a peaceful mind. Take your meds, be hydrated and always drink your vitamins. 

I am still alive. 

December Moon Photos

December 2022 Boredom Expanded

Most people in todays time go into the app matrix plugin. The app matrix plugin is living your life based on a media platform. We post on instagram , facebook , twitter or somewhere amongst those apps. We no longer do live outside our platforms, the search engines are dead and I decided to write more this coming next year 2023. Maybe some keywords would add some income rather than images. 2022 was so boring that getting out of the house was a waste of time. It is at that level that going out of the house is just eating doing small talk and not even doing anything. It is like a zombie plugged mode of life. We are plugged in inside the app matrix the platforms kind of control the world. The websites are getting more boring and boring as years go by. Everyone posts on facebook, nobody writes long pages of thought structured rants and opinions, I think nobody really desires to voice out what they think things should be wether it is wrong or right. I miss the good old days when people think they are right and believe it some people care and most people make that person realize he is wrong, it was still healthy for people to be ciritized for being wrong. Today who does that? A content edited version of it with internet pseudo police trying to stop things from naturally evolving. We are evolving into a space of publishing that popular opinion is no longer popular but a spaminion bunch,  who cares if it is wrong or right just be entertained. Idiocarcy is just right around the corner and I am not a Grade A type of dude.  


Lets just look into the moon for 7 days. I will update this post with photos of the moon for seven days. Why seven ? It has no basis just like what is happening now it is all based on feelings and emotions. 7 nights of moon photos, atleast that could be pleasing to the eye. Let your mind imagine things, recreate a vision for the future. “Moon bases? Anyone?” If i can capture one. 


I will be using the tamron 18 – 400mm for this post. 

12/02/2022 DAY - 1

Neptune and Jupiter was in conjunction with the moon. The small star near the moon is either jupiter or neptune.

12/03/2022 DAY - 2

Seeing the moon as usual I used the trees to create something interesting. at 1600 ISO I can’t get an image that looks different and so I bumped up the exposure and made the noise obvious that way it can appear as if the image has texture. I like film grains., digital film grains.

12/04/2022 DAY - 3

Late afternoon I decided to take some photos for day 3, to  add some intrigue I colored the white balance at warm to evening twilight. 

12/05/2022 DAY - 4

Lazy moon lapse was on my mind pre taking photos. I decided to just shoot the moon using various ways like video, time intervals and multiple photos for stacking. Here is what I got. 

A closer look as a video.

Stacked photos.

12/06/2022 DAY - 5

For this day things got into some bad omen type of things. The bathroom glass mirror just got shattered into pieces.   

Due to it being the source of bad luck we needed to do some common procedures to take away bad luck.  Moonlight and Salt. Some incense and prayer to ward of bad luck.

Last but not the least, pictures of the moon. The moon was hiding behind the clouds and so my exposures was off. 

12/07/2022 DAY - 6

Almost forgot about it but then my aunt reminded me of the moon, luckily the sky was clear  Here are the photos. 

Here i have done some Increase in exposure on the blacks while balancing it with darker exposures as original. this way the stars hidden in the dark areas are exposed.

12/08/2022 DAY - 7

Today I am to get the moon during day light time or afternoon before dark. sadly the moon was below horizon and it took me a lot of hours to see it translating to it not being seen during sunset times. 

After waiting a couple of hours and cooking some chikcen and gravy the moon showed up and I took some photos. If you see some fungus its either on my lens or camera body. I missed fixing it up on post. I feel lazy about it. Ending this post is just a good december to everyone and happy holidays. I recommend for people to  wait for my fireworks posts for this new year 2023. I still feel lazy about photography still at 2022 but 7 days of moon photography might make you feel a little motivated, maybe.
