The feature uses conventional holographic methods to create a full colour animated 3D holographic image by combining live subject matter and animated graphics, to provide a wide array of diffraction fringes and frequencies.
The net result is a 10X magnification of the vertical scan angle, converting the diffraction fringes' linear motion into rotational motion, yet stabilising the fringes as a stationary pattern, to create a horizontal scan line with the requisite 3D information, albeit only with horizontal parallax.
This records grating diffraction fringes in the photosensitive polymer, the colour of the image determined by the spacing of the fringes.
