Quick Guide: Types of Lenticular Printing

by Kristen White Blogger
The lenticular printing cost depends upon the level of expertise involved. You need to choose a company that creates fine balance between quality and price.
In order to find out what would be the lenticular printing cost, you need to first understand the basics and types of lenticular printing effects.
How Lenticular Prints are Made?
The lenticular printing is done by using two or more images that you wish to be used in the process. The images to be used are categorized into tiny strips, and then recombined into a different pattern, a process called interlacing. Then the lenticular lenses bring these images to life and give them the desired effects. The arrangement of strips is done keeping in view how right and left eyes will individually see the resulting image.
Types of Lenticular Prints
Depending upon the required variation of angles for creating desired images, the lenticular prints and 3D poster printing can be categorized into three types:
Auto Stereoscopic Prints
This is the type of lenticular printing that uses the images with very minute differences. Hence, the interlacing results in a very gradual change in the picture. Commonly, the resulting images are the different angles of the same images.
Motion Prints
Motion prints are the ones where an illusion of movement is created. It mostly utilizes sequential images so that there is a smooth transition from one image to the other. The zoom, morph and animated motion effect are examples of motion prints.
Transforming Prints
Transforming prints is one of the most common types of lenticular printing. The images involved are very different from each other. Moreover, the lenticular lenses here are also different because they allow greater variation in angels.
Various Types of Lenticular Printing Effects
3D Prints
It is the most widely used lenticular printing effect. It makes the image appear deeper and 3 dimensional. Through this effect, the plain images are given a more interesting perspective.
The 3D effect, in turn, can be layered 3D or volumetric 3D. In the former type, the objects shown in an image are made into separate layers and each object is given an effect of depth from the sides. The latter is a bit complex than layered 3D.
Morph Effect
The morph effect needs an advanced level of expertise and equipment. Two images are first combined together and then an advanced level of algorithms and complex programs are utilized to create the transition of images. Then the transition is placed between two static images hence creating an illusion of transition from image to the other.
