An optical system which produces 3-D images exhibiting continuous parallax with no flipping or cardboarding is described. Both integral and lenticular images can be recorded on photographic film without recourse to a specialized environment. Standard photographic processing and enlarging techniques are used to obtain hard copy. Measurements on commercially available retrodirective screens and a new retroscreen arrangement show that the new screen developed gives significant advantages. A retrodirective and a transmission version of the system have been constructed.
