This is an animation of my previous stereogram. You need to look through the image in order to see hidden 3D, same way you look in magic eye pictures.

I haven't posted animated stereogram stuff for a while, so here is a new one. This is Animated Contour Stereogram.

Here is a new version of Stereogram Tetris.

What's new:
1. Preloader Added
2. Pattern is changed - less strain for your eyes
2. Figure Hint - the next figure will be shown
3. Control the figure after you drop it
4. Pause mode (space bar key)
5. High Score table (hosted by

High Score Table <- click the link for TOP 30 scores

Finally you can compete for the best score!
If you get 100 points or more, you'll be allowed to submit you score to In the future they may have monthly winner contests with prizes, so keep training ;)

High score opens in a pop-up window, so if you have a popup blocker please make sure is not blocked. Try to get 100 points and see if it works, and then you can play your best. Don't forget to pause (space bar key) if you need to get some rest :)

Have fun!

Here's some tips how to view stereograms:

Basically you need to unfocus your vision and look through the stereogram. This makes patterns to overlap and gives each eye slightly different view, and that makes you see 3D image.

Get any still stereogram for training purposes or use the one on the bottom of game's Intro screen.

Step 1.
Look through the stereogram imaging that it's transparent. Your eyes should be relaxed and not focused on stereogram. When your sight is blurred try to move closer and further toward the stereogram, and do it very slowly. At some distance you may notice something happens and blurry relief may start appearing behind your screen. It'll be blurry, the next step is to make it sharp.

Step 2.
Try not to switch your sight onto the image - look through it all the time. Hold your head horizontally, don't tilt. Also try not to blink. It may take a little while until eyes focus properly by themselves. Do not force it because you gonna switch to 2D image. Eventually hidden image will become sharp and clear like a reflection in the mirror.

If you see a hidden image but it looks inside-out, it means you cross your eyes. You need to diverge them instead. If you see doubled objects - it means you diverge them too much (doublefusion), try to refocus.

It may take a while, so be patient and do this couple of times with different stereograms. It really worth it!

You may experience some eyestrain and even headache at the first time. It's ok and won't hurt you. It's also a good exercise for your eyes' muscles.

If you still can not see anything and wonder how it may look, try this online tool - Reveal the Magic Eye

Good luck and thank you for trying!

Bored with the Stereogram Tetris? Here is another alternative to get yourself busy with a new Magic Eye game!

Stereogram Python is a stereogram version of the classic python game. Unfocus your eyes and try to look through the image. This way you can see the hidden motion picture and play the game. Need instructions?

1. Use control keys to turn moving python or to stop it. It's ok to hit walls and itself.
2. Collect food balls, they will make python to grow. Fresh food balls give more points.
3. When certain number of food balls collected, you will be given an exit to a next level.
4. When you find exit, the points made in the level are doubled.
5. Don't get the python into a deadend, it will kill Python.
6. Don't hit spiky traps, they'll kill Python.

Make 100+ points and feel free to submit your score to the Top-score table. Good luck!

Look through the animated image and you may see the animation in 3D.
Here I used 50 frames, it should be pretty smoothly.

Hello All,

This is pretty powerful online stereogram creation tool, which is actually simple to work with.

Here is an example of stereogram made in Stereogram Paint - [link]

Draw your hidden image, changing levels of Depth and brush shape, then click [Render] button and your stereogram will be ready in a couple of seconds.

The interface is pretty simple:
1. Background drop down list allows to pick one of preset backgrounds.
2. Texture drop down allows to pick a pattern
3. Brush Type (Circle, Square, Dimond, RectX and RectY) changes brush shape and the slider below changes Brush size.
4. Edge Type (Plane, Sphere, Inset) changes the edge of the Brush and the slider below changes Edge size.
5. Depth slider changes current Z level of the brush
6. Eraser checkbox switches brush to erase mode (don't forget to pick a Depth)
7. Depth Increment is a cool tool. It changes Z Depth of the Brush while you draw. +/- slider sets the speed of change (angle in 3D). If you need to reset it - click the button next to it - [0]
8. Depth Pick button - [?] gets the depth from where you click - very convenient
9. Unde/Redo buttons - 10 steps of Undo (a must feature in any editor)
10. Clear - erases whole scene
11. Render - generates Stereogram. When you click on stereogram - you'll be switched back to editor mode.
12. Save button - download your Depth Map or Stereogram from

Critics, questions and suggestions are appreciated.

Have fun and don't forget to post what you created in your dA gallery. Give me a link to your stereogram in comments and I will check it out and will probably leave a feedback :)

I used rendering algorithm developed by William Andrew Steer (
You might know there another online tool with a similar idea, made by a different programmer -

Here is the link, should work in any browser:

When I found these free models of African animals, I couldn't stand to make a 3D Stereogram of them. Though it took quite long to align textures I really enjoy the result.

I used couple more tricks that hard to notice but they really helped to encode pretty complex 3D scene into a 2D image. One is texturing the ground and monoscopic areas (It has always been a problem in my previous works). The second one is using "morphing" texture which allowed me to show more details on the left and right objects. Morphing texture makes small retinal revelry effect, however it instantly disappears as soon as you dive into a 3D scene.

Tell me if you had difficulties viewing this work, I really need to know how the Morphing Texture affects on depth reception.

If you never were able to see hidden images inside the Magic Eye posters, try this tool. You won't need to diverge or cross your eyes, animation will help you to see it. Even if you have depth perception difficulties or binocular vision problems, you can discover hidden 3D world with this method.

1. Paste or type in the URL of the any JPEG image and click the [Load] button *
2. As soon as the image is loaded it will begin to shake.
3. Adjust Focus slider until a hidden image appears.
4. Adjust the Speed as well for better viewing.

Different position of Focus will "open" different level of depth. Play with it and uncover the scene layer by layer.

* Some images will not open from the web - you will need to download them to your hardrive first and then enter their location, instead of URL
* Some image formats and some versions of JPEG are not supported by Flash - please convert or resave them with any graphical tool you have.
