You know the 3d effect you see in movies? That makes certain things come out of the screen? Well I've been experimenting with it and I think I've got it down, I tested it with 3D glasses but things that I want to stay in come out and things that I want to come out stay in. Is there anyway to fix that? Please help thank you

I've thought about doing this with effectlab, and you'll need two cameras to do it and you'll need to synchronize the video from both before overlaying the video over each other and adding the red/blue effect.

Yeah, I just moved the same video a bit to the right, I'll try it with 2 cameras

Just duplicating the footage into two layers won't work properly, the footage has to be filmed from two different angles to get the 3D effect. Setting up two cameras side by side (ideally the two lenses should be the same distance apart as your eyes) should work, but even then, getting the shutters syncronized exactly is going to be near impossible. Hopefully they will be close enough that it will work though.

I had a shot at it once and made a tutorial. http://fxhome.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=29284&highlight=3d

Sadly it only works mildly, however you will need two cameras right next to each other to be able to make a good looking 3D effect.
