|THE GRAY SCALE rendering of the model becomes the source
for the hidden image. The next step is to produce a 2D pattern which will serve as the
visible pattern that camouflages the hidden image.
The 2D pattern determines the
overall look and feel of the image. We can incorporate company logos, company colors and
other design elements into the visible pattern.
ALL 2D PATTERNS are not created equal. It takes talent, experience,
and high-end software to produce a pleasing and technically effective 2D pattern. Every
member of the Magic Eye creative team has an Art School background and many years of
experience working with computer graphics.
The third part of the process is the computer program that takes the grayscale source
plus the 2D pattern to encode the hidden image. Magic Eye Inc. uses its own patented
algorithm. Our program is a leading edge, parameterized stereogram generator. The result
is a genuine Magic Eye image, like the one shown on the next page.
