How I Designed This

Designed in Blender

source file attached, there is a first version of rig hidden inside .blend file (with cameras stand side by side) but i not recommend that one: final version (with one upside down camera) give better results

I find when I use this frame, the right's side GoPro len is a litle down than left one, is it ok for using !? Thanks

one more question, I find some1 make another version of stereo rig, that was a side by side(I know your rig is better, it don't block menu button, but that don't need to rotate right gopro), do you think which 3d effect is better!? Thanks

Thats strange - mine is perfectly aligned and i did not notice anything...

As for version without rotation - this was my first version of that rig, and in BLEND-file you could find layer with this version - but i do not advise it since distance between lenses is WAY TO BIG for comfort watching. Moreover - original gopro rig is rotated too - and this is not coincidence ))

This rocks! Are you able to make one that accommodates the new go pro 5? If so what would the price be? Please email me at [email protected]

Great! Thanks =) Suddenly I've got 2 gopro's squashed by car. I restored it (work fine, but LCDs died) and now thinking how can I apply it =) Now I know =)

This is one of the best rigs I've seen yet - do you have any video examples? Also, this looks much closer than the recommended IA of 64mm so wonder how far one can get away from the lens before it starts effecting your eyes?

Yup, video example is here (https://youtu.be/PYYktmBNb8w) - here is a ride on Shambala from Port Aventura and i can definitely tell that distance between lenses is totally fine. Watched on LG 3d-tv. 3D effect is consistent from 1 m to infinity (really far objects still have slight depth effect)

GREAT !!! can't quote you !!!

To perfectly sync the video you need a special cable, but I think that your solution is perfect using 60fps, Thanks for sharing, :)

Several solutions exist to sync two CoPRO cameras, such as the one by 3DGuy.tv. You may also search for 'GoPRO' on the www.stereoscopynews.com web site for other ones.

60fps indeed!
I start recording via GoPro Remote but yes it is still not accurate so i clap two or three times after recording start just to make significant audio peaks so it is really simple to align footage in AE (or any other software) Also some software can sync clips using audio sync automatically (like Kolor Autopano)

I didn't know that, thanks again to good tip.
