Create 3D images for facebook in Blender

Just a very quick video that shows how to upload your own "3D" images from blender onto Facebook. The new Facebook feature calculates a 3D effect for any image, provided you upload a depth map for it. It seems to be a fairly simple concept and looks pretty impressive. This is a great way to get more impressive looking 3D renders.

My name is Rico Cilliers, and I live in Pretoria, South Africa. I've been doing cg art and design for around 8 years now, I'm completely self taught in almost all areas of digital art... from 2D painting and design to sculpting, modelling/texturing and animation, but I specialize in modelling and texturing (high or low-poly asset creation), and character design & modelling.

  1. Hi Rico. Thanks for the tuts.

    The artifacts are likely from occlusion and become evident when the subject is viewed from angles other than the original rendered perspective. Kinect / depth camera maps can exhibit such artifacts too.
