Re: what's 3-D?

I have seen what to my eye is a very literal 3D appearance in Kodachrome slides as seen in a small viewer. Kodachrome is a 3-layer item, like Sigma. I wonder if, at the small distance scale of a viewer, the 3 separate layers are perceived as such by the eye---but bearing no relation to the actual relative distances of things in the shot.

It's nothing to do with the layers because at the end of the day the sensor is delivering information that is decoded as distinct pixels.

It seems to be down to the fine detail and contrast that means that the fine texture of the edge of an object or feature in the foreground is distinct from the fine texture of the background.
