Using focus stacked images for stereo 3d

I am experimenting with making stacked images from multiple images with the focus point changing so I have an image which has greater depth of field ( macro images )

I am interested in using these stacked images for 3d stereo images.

Making these stacked images is complex. Even more so when it is 3d stereo and also macro photography.

The technique I am using is to move the focus knob on the camera ( Panasonic TZ80 ) and take rapid photos using the 4K photo mode ( this gives me 30 images per second, I also only get 8 megapixel images which are jpeg ).

cross view image made from over 30 stacked images

cross view image made from one image for left and one image for right.

I do this for the left camera and for the right camera.

I have down-loaded Helicon Focus software to do the stacking ( 30 day free trial ).

I have now done some 3d photos using this method - on the day the lighting was poor - so I think I can get better results on a sunny day.

The side to side dimension is 30mm, the orange berries are 9mm in diameter.
