The Outer Limits Intro: Stereogram Version

[This video is greatest viewed in the small player window, not full screen] This is a stereogram animation to, in my opinion, 1 of the creepiest show intros ever. I played with facial animation in this one. The monologue: There is absolutely nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the concentrate to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the subsequent hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat, there is nothing wrong with your tv set. You are about to participate in a excellent adventure. You are about to encounter the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to… The Outer Limits. In no way noticed a stereogram just before? The goal is to unfocus your eyes and appear by way of the screen, till the repeating pattern merges and you see the 3D image. 3 ideas that may possibly assist to look via the screen: 1) Try focusing on the wall behind and above your pc screen, then *keep your eyes focused at that distance* but move them down so that you are searching by way of the screen. 2) If you have a CRT monitor, try focusing on the reflections in the screen. three) Start off up close to the screen, unfocus your eyes so you’re searching via the screen, and slowly

    Cool. It’s been some years since I’ve seen the old “Magic Eye” stereograms, and I’m glad I can still pick out the image.

    @11m4357r0 — Thanks for the comments! :) I’ve only seen one guy make colored stereograms, but they are very impressive. Do a Google image search for “3dimka pink panther” (without the quotes) to see my favorite one.

    I love these, the only problem is they cant be colored, or else you dont get the cool effect, if only there was a way.

    @Jaclynxmariex3 — Thanks for the comment! Did you try the tips in the video description? My dad has the best luck by starting up close to the screen then slowly backing away while keeping his eyes unfocused. He pauses the video until he can see the stereogram, then clicks play.

  5. ThePhantomChick says:

    @Gielinorian — No, it’s a hidden image stereogram. Check the video description for tips on viewing stereograms. If this is your first time trying to see stereograms, I’d recommend starting with still image stereograms. Just do a Google image search for stereogram and you’ll find plenty. Good luck!

    I can only see stereograms sometimes, i saw this video and your oragami one. There so cool once you get ” in the zone” :D It sucks cause i only saw this one once, and only a few still images.. i guess ill just keep trying, any moer tips !?

    @ibcrazysumtimes — Ha ha! :P

    the floating head called my computer monitor a television set, dudes trippin!

  10. ThePhantomChick says:

    The original Outer Limits intro handled it better by starting with just a white dot, and for controlling the horizontal it changed its horizontal width to grow into a horizontal line. I guess it would have made more sense for me to copy that, and have him grow horizontally rather than shrink. Thanks for watching these, and commenting! :)

    he goes vertical when he says horizontal and horizontal when he says vertical

  12. RossEStern says:

    wait was that suppost to be a floating head? it creeps me out

    @StickItMaster — Yes, that’s basically what it is. It’s an alien head, but he looks kind of like an Eastern Island face combined with a talking strawberry. He does have two eyes, but they’re small and look kind of like a mask. Thanks for watching!

  15. StickItMaster says:

    That face… Is it some kind of triangular cyclops-face? Looks like that to me.

    @SMNH89 — Thank you, I’m glad you could see it! :)
