Cross-eye video is a technique in which two images with slightly different angles are projected together often in a LR format in which each eye is fed with one image. Some trained people can see depth in these images by just looking at the screen. Small telephone screens work better than big monitors. This does not work for me a need a simple VR viewer like a Google cardboard. I was pointer to this nice example of on YouTube


It can be used of you make a sideways movie with your drone or if you circle around an object. In a video editing program you put the video stream twice but shift the second stream about half a second, dependent on your flight speed. Below an example I made with a DJI mini2, but it will work with any drone


When looking with a real VR headset like an oculus Quest 2 or Oculus rift S it really looks stunning.

I hope you can enjoy it as much as I do.

It worked for me. Got a headache after a few minutes. As a kid in the 1950's, we had 3D comics that used 2 color lenses in glasses, but I learned this technique for stills and even drew a few by hand. Now I'll have to try it with my drone. The first one worked better than the second. Probably a slight difference in the delay?

Yes timing is still trial and error. The flight speed must be very stable. It gives the brain a lot of work which might result in a headache, sorry for that.
