The Stereo 3D Channel

A 3D anaglyph video can be made using only one camera/camcorder. Find a subject that has minimal motion (like a building or a Forrest preserve on a calm day). Keep the camera 90 degrees to the subject and sweep the camera as slow and smoothly as possible. Use a car or a dolly for smoothness. Use the widest angle on the lens system you are using. Download a freeware program called stereo movie maker. Load the video twice fooling the program to think it is a left and a right video. After loading the video twice, set the program to a stereo anaglyph, half color. If the video you have taken sweeps from the left to the right, adjust the bottom arrow button in stereo movie maker that adjusts the frames, forward two frames. You might need three or more frames. depending on how fast you have swept during your video run. This method causes a time difference between the two videos which then translates in to two separate videos, a left and a right. Output your video as a stereo output video (half color anaglyph) in the codec of your choice.
