Optimizing Object Placement
Object Placement is important when trying to get the most depth out of the display.

Optimizing Object Placement For Maximum Depth

This scene setup has large empty spaces between objects on the depth axis - resulting in the need for a large Leia frustum, which will result in the objects in the scene becoming flattened on the depth axis like as shown on the next slide.
This shows what the viewer will perceive objects to look like if you have a large low-baseline Leia frustum. Because a large amount of depth is compressed to fit within the safe disparity zone, objects are flattened to look like cardboard cutouts.
The more stretched out a scene is on the depth axis, the more that depth will have to be compressed to fit within the safe disparity zone. To avoid flattening out objects, eliminate large empty spaces between objects on the depth axis, and increase the baseline scaling of the LeiaCamera component such that the Leia frustum tightly encapsulates the scene.

Use the Full Range of Depth

This setup is suboptimal. Unused space behind the convergence plane forces depth to be squashed, and similarly to the previous slides will make objects look more like flat paper cut-outs rather than 3D models. It would provide a richer, fuller depth experience to increase the baseline and move the convergence plane such that the frustum more tightly encompasses the objects in the scene.
This setup will provide maximal possible comfortable depth. Seeing multiple objects at different depths spread across the Leia frustum maximizes parallax information and depth perception.
