It may well be my most favorite scene from Batman: The Animated Series.  It's from the episode, "On Leather Wings" and features the Man-Bat flying away from the camera, up to, around, and over a police blimp all the while dragging Batman along with him.  You can see the entire sequence here on youtube:…;

Also, I converted one single screenshot to 3D already here:

I've been wanting to do animated conversions for a while and finally went through the process of capturing frame by frame the 122 images it would take to make the blimp scene 3 dimensional.  I'm excited!  Growing up I always wanted to be an animator working on this very show, because of scenes just like this.  

Starting up, it's just dawning on me exactly what it will take to make this work.  For instance, normally when I do conversions I put the number of the grayscale color on the layer so I can easily keep track of where I am in the depth of the scene.  However, each and every layer is now going to be all over the place in the depth of the scene.  So I have to figure out some way to keep track of things.  When I first started doing conversions I was just eyeballing the grayscale values, but it didn't take long to realize that I needed something more objective to discern the shades of gray.  Obviously I'll still be using number reference, but it is going to get pretty crazy especially with this scene in particular that I'm just jumping in to.  

I think ultimately I'll just not worry about the depth for a while and focus on all of the masking work first to track all the shapes in the shot.  That'll take a while.

Perhaps I could have started with a mundane easy shot to warm up to animated conversions, but this will definitely keep me interested.  

I'll post more later.
