01- Can I combine 3D and flip ?
No. You cannot combine 3D with FLIP effect because the lens has to be vertical to make a good 3D effect, and it has to be horizontal to make a nice FLIP effect.
02- Can I combine 3D and animation ?
Yes. 3D effect can be combine with animation. A 3 frames animation is the best to be combine with a 3D effect, more frames will be blur, and less frames will be less interesting.
03- Is the effect the same on 20lpi and 60lpi lens
The bigger the lens is (20 lpi), the more the effect is enhanced. The fields of view affect the speed of the animation. See the specifications page for more informations.
04- Can I use any color ?
White & Black is not recommended. It is preferable to have some data in the highlight. Using dark color is fine, but black is just too dark. Using black for text is OK.
05- Why my sample is not exactly the same as the printed piece ?
A sample printed with inkjet printer and finish by hand is always different and a less sharp than the real thing printed directly on the lens.
06- Is the resolution of my file important ?
The more resolution you have, the better the details will be, but we can create a 3 seconds animation with a 800×600 Quicktime… if we have to, it will be just fine.
07- Any restriction to print on the back ?
You can print on the back of the lenticular (over the white lamination) but it must be 50% screen… unless the back type can show through the front.
08-Any problem with flip ?
When making a FLIP effect, make sure the images look alike (position, size), and fit together, a slight shift can make it blur.
09- Any animation restrictions ?
Animation can use as much as 32 frames, the maximum is 64, the more you have, the smoother the animation will be. The technician will evalute the best frame rate to use, just send your animation for evaluation.
10- Is it long to print lenticular ?
Lenticular work can be produce in a week or less. But usually, the great lenticular pieces take time and tweek to get perfect… so expect 3-4 weeks for a top quality job !
