8K 3D videos taken in the arboretum of the castle in Kórnik near Poznań
Kórnik, Poland, May 2018
Kórnik Castle is a castle in Poland, which was constructed in the 14th century. The current neogothic design and remodeling was done in 1855. The current look of the castle resembles Gothic Revival architecture, one of popular historicising styles in the 19th century.
The castle is surrounded by Kórnik Arboretum founded by Count Tytus Działyński in the first half of the 19th century – the oldest and largest one in Poland as well as the fourth largest arboretum in Europe covering around 40 hectares and containing more than 3300 taxa of trees and shrubs.
In this idyllic scenery, in May 2018, the PSNC team recorded footages of flowering plants in the arboretum using two 8K cameras and a 3D rig, due to lack of power in the park, battery supply of the cameras and all equipment was used. The editing process took quite a long time because of the large volume of 8K 3D raw data and time-consuming post-production but thanks to the use of 8K technology it was possible to capture the richness of colours and details of the filmed plants, and the stereoscopic technology further expanded and strengthened the final effect.
