Re: I promessed a better one!

OK! That convergence point (where homologous features are at identical horizontal positions on both views) is indeed worthy of special recognition.

Most stereophotographers will place that point at the Z-position on the rectangular frame around the view, that frame being formally called as the "Stereo Window" (as if you were looking through a window frame at the stereo scene). The Stereo Window typically is perceived (in space) to be on the viewing screen or paper surface (if it's a print).

Most image elements will be at or behind the the Stereo Window. Some elements can "project through" the window, if the maker is careful not to permit any of that element to actually touch or intersect the frame, else a "window violation" results, which produces rivalries particularly along either the left or right sides of the frame.

Nothing demands you must use a rectangular frame, and some makers use custom frames (with angled or curved lines) to produce very effective "special windows" for their work.

For instance, see here:

Hat's off to you as well!
