FISHEYE LENS .mdl as seen on TV

Recommended Posts

THIS model has been around for a few years now, and due to Tralfaz's recent usage and success with it, I have decided it should be available to all-with a tutorial! Formerly known as 'BensLens'...it was developed by Ben(BenToTheMax) and myself after we discovered that simply widening A:M's camera focal length did not get the effect of a true 'fisheye' lens. The main place you can see its effect is in the lines of your perspective. With the plain A:M camera at a wide focal length the lines will always be straight, whereas with 'fisheye' distortion you get natural lenticular curvature. NOTE: Because it uses refraction upon render...your render times will increase.

 

ALSO--- there are some 'toys' in the pose sliders. 'Whiskey Glass' gives a wacky distortion effect, and 'Facet' should give an insect-eye look. I hope other people will experiment and implement other 'toys'. I am including a sample where I used the 'whiskey glass' gradually increasing it's effect over time.

 

I hope Hashers will grab this simple model and keep it in their 'tool box' and use it when circumstances dictate...ENJOY!

No need to thank me. If anything, I should be thanking you! It is a great addition to the A:M toolset!

Thanks Matt

 

It cost me 1200.00 dollars for my fish eye lens on my Sony EX1. Your lens is very valuable to me. Thanks for the clear instructions on how you use it.
