The 'Multiplex hologram, the 'holographic stereogram' (or 'integral') combines 2D cinematography showing horizontal parallax and motion with 'holographic printing' (using Lloyd Cross' invented 'printers' - Mark I to Mark V - as improved on by Sharon McCormack and Cross lenses) at the San Francisco Multiplex Company (see multiplex technology). This remarkable development in holography had a world-wide impact and even appeared in motion pictures. Viewers could 'walk around' a movie playing in 360 degrees with an image appearing to float in a cylinder. It suggested 'holographic TV' or 'holographic movies' and were exhibited in the 1970's and continuing through the 1990's, 2000's.

Full laser transmission holographic movie animation 1974 @ Visual Alchemy
'MIMETIC GLASS' hologram (1974) - over 6 ft. in length - was discovered in 2010 in storage. This film animation hologram by Al Razutis 1974 made by careful advance of frame by frame animation may be the 'first motion picture hologram' made in Canada. This is true holographic stop-motion animation recorded as sequential strips of laser transmission holograms, not a 'rainbow' multiplex from 2D film. Verification or contesting claims are encouraged. TECHNIQUE EMPLOYED: Spatial multi-plexing of laser transmission hologram for each step in the motion of solid subject.
Exhibited in October 2010 at the Deja Vu Exhibition of Holographic Art and Stereoscopic 3D, Vancouver, Canada.
