Anaglyph 3D Imagery

Mark also described the process of creating an Anaglyph 3D image in Photoshop, where the Red and the Cyan channels are separated and then the image skewed so that the 3-dimensional effect is created.

I then researched this process and came across the following website.

Essentially, the Red Channel in the Anaglyph 3D glasses is on your left eye and the Cyan Channel on the right.

I created an image with three layers and used blending options on two of them to cut out the red channel for the Cyan-Right Layer and cutting out the Green and Blue Channels for the Red-Left Layer.

I then used Edit, Transform, Perspective to adjust the top left corner in the Red-Left Layer and the top right corner in the Cyan-Right Layer.

The image was then cropped and saved. The article also suggested that this process works well on Black and White Images. Below are my final images, which I tested with the Anaglyph 3D glasses that Mark had brought with him.

These six collections give a broad representation of my stereographic photography. Most of them were shot as left and right pairs on 35 mm slide film in full color, but are presented in the anaglyph format for computer viewing. To see the stereoscopic effect of the anaglyphs, red/cyan 3D glasses are required. Red/Blue glasses will also work well. 3-D MOVIE MAGIC is a selection of scenes that I photographed when I was working as an animator and model maker in the movie special effects business. 3-D NIGHTMARE and 3-D NIGHTMARE II depict many setups from the ever popular feature film, The Nightmare Before Christmas, which I photographed while working on the show as an animator. 3-D GLAMOUR features beautiful women in exotic locations, shot with a Nimslo camera. 3-D VARIETY is a small collection of cool images that would not fit in a particular category. 3-D NATURE displays some spectacular landscapes, and the anaglyphs in this gallery are in color! 3-D STOP-MOTION contains scenes from several animated television specials. 3-D DIGITAL presents an assortment of shots from the new Fuji W3 digital stereo camera.
