I was pondering ( and i can't seem to find anything with the search function razz) if in vision lab you could make movies that popped out at you. ( masked grading involved of coarse) You would need to procure or make some 3d glasses using colored seran(can't spell that biggrin) wrap, etc. (one side blue one side red)

IS there any way to achieve this effect in Vlab? I don't know how they do it in the first place (except that they have like two fields covered in blue and red) Hope someone can figure it out, it would be pretty awesome. smile

You have to film with two cameras simultaneously. Shift one to blue, and the other to red, and Voila!

3D works based on there being 2 copies of an image recorded from slightly different angles (having 2 eyes just a few inches apart in our face allows us to have depth perception. The blue and red serve to isolate one of the images to each eye, thereby imparting a 3 dimensional depth to a technically 2-D image.

Go to superteam site and ask to Ian. He made a film with that effect but in AE. But his help can be very usefull.

Just wondering...

If I want my video to be 3D, what I need is to have shoot the movie with two cameras extremelly close to each other. Then I go, edit my movie, etc, etc. But in VLab, what would I have to do?

This is a quick test I did for your benefit. I used the Color Balance filter to shift the color of the two images. Layer 1 I set the Red to 0 and the Blue to 2.0, then on layer 2 I set the Blue to 0 and the Red to 2.0 You can play around with the green a bit, but setting it at about 0.5 on each layer seemed to work ok. This setting would probably work best for black-and-white projects.



On this one, I was trying to retain more of the original color. Basically, it was as simple as kepping the red and blue channels at a setting of 1.0 rather than boosting them all the way, as in the last example. I don't actually have any proper 3D glasses, so I was using a couple of lens filters from my camera to look through. The effect seemed to work ok, but I'm interested in hearing how well it works with real glasses.

Well the drums look really good but the mic doesnt work. This highlights one of the tricky points in making 3d images, which is that when aligning them you can only make one depth work best. If you watch spy kids 3d for instance and when one of the things flies out at you if you look at the background at that time it doesn't look right. So as you are making the 3d footage you need to shift the 2 images left to right to sort of focus in 3d on your subject at any given time.
