I was reading a book on how to create a 3D movie when I came across this:

"...you need to alter the RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values. To create the 3D effect, you need to remove red from [the first piece of footage] and remove green/blue from the [second piece of footage]..."


How would I do this using CompositeLab Lite?

Thanks,

I think the "Color Balance" filter would be able to do that.

I can't seem to find the "Color Balance" filter... does CompositeLab Lite have that filter? If it doesn't, is there any other way to get this effect?

In compositeLab Lite, the best technique I can come up with is to desaturate the footage, then add an ambient light filter to each one, to tint it the color you want. The results won't be quite the same, but it might work.

I've done this befor with 3d animation and it can come out good if you turn the contrast up. It tends to make the footage gray. It won't come out good the first time, but keep tring. this is coming from experiance. I would post the video, but 3d videos on youtube ( the only way to get my videos on the web right now) makes the effect bad.
