Make 3D Prints - Viewers & Instructional CD - Fuji W3. View-Master Update. Many months ago, I mentioned a "make your own view-master reels" kit in this post. I finally went ahead and got it, and successfully created my first reel. The kit is comprised of a CD containing a photoshop template, a reel jig, an alignment viewer (just a view-master that's been cracked in half) and a couple of blank reels.

I used the monsterpalooza photos I'd shot the previous week. The photoshop template allows two pairs per frame of 35mm film. Being that a view-master reel contains 7 3D photos (14 pictures) you'd need 4 slides (which actually gives you eight pairs, so you would omit one). View-Master's Last Gasp. Disappointing news from the monkeygoggles blog: Fisher-Price announced recently that they have ceased making reels for View-Master 3D viewers, save for a handful of children's titles.

His blog: JOURNEY INTO THE THIRD DIMENSION. Mentioning View-Master 3D slides the other day set me thinking about the toy that was so much a part of my '50s/'60s childhood and, in particular, those recreated scenes from Disney animated features that I loved almost as much as the films themselves...

his blog: JOURNEY INTO THE THIRD DIMENSION

Of course, that probably seems rather childish, but it should be remembered that we are talking about a time that was not only before DVDs, but before videos! As a Disney-nerd, I could only see the studio's classics when they were re-released at the cinema (at roughly seven years intervals) or when clips were occasionally screened on TV (in black and white) on compilations shows. Being obsessed, I collected books and records that had still photographs from the films and - once I'd discovered shops that sold them - sets of the advertising lobby cards that used to be displayed outside cinema marques.

The Scrappin Cop: CU OK Viewmaster Reel Template. I had a request several months ago from Lisa to create some Viewmaster elements. I did make this template and have been looking for a Viewmaster toy to photograph and extract but the only ones I could find in the stores around here are the modern day Viewmasters and they don’t really look anything like the ones I remember.

There are several images on the internet available if you would like to use one for your layouts but unfortunately I don’t think I’ll have a viewer up any time soon.
