Ok so today i experimented with depth maps, and got myself all confused
So i have two things.
I seem to find that their are 2 different types of maps. Their are colorful ones and greyscale ones. What is the difference? I do have a lineup of photos that show the differences but i cant tell why.
Inside the linked folder their are groups of 2 photos. The depth map, then the layer after it was adjusted.
Another question i have is why all the lines? It seems especially on the greyscale map of a chess board (test 2) that their are too many lines in it! I cant seem to smooth them out!
Also i understand that the effect works with lights, but is their a way to make it work with a 3d camera? Kinda like this?
Heres the images.https://app.box.com/s/la4uzfexbgrbra7spcag
