Believe it or not, I didn't even go down to Siggraph this year, although it's just 20 minutes away from where I live, haha...
But I did go to our Gallery opening at the Gnomon School, presenting our first RabbitHoles on Tuesday. Have you been there, too? If not, you certainly should have, because it's Holograms and really a blast. I got the two I made at home now and they're such pearls... eh... I mean, the Hologram aspect of it and I somehow did pick soothing colors, hahaha. Honestly, wasn't meant as self-praise.
Attached you'll find my little stereo filter. It just combines left and right images into one anaglyph image (red/cyan or blue/yellow), with a chromatically corrected booster as option for red.
If you apply the filter to the left side, you just need to select the right side and be done with it.
If you want to offset one side, you can have an offset filter before the stereo plugin, while you then obviously only move the left side, but it's nice and quick.
It really couldn't be any more simple I think.
I'm making these little filters every now and then, so you could well make a "taronites" folder in your after effects/plug-ins....
Besides, if you had the ZbornToy, you could turn height fields (Zdepth) to stereo. I've done that for a 10k resolution show, which saved our booties, since it rendered it in seconds for that resolution, while a talking water face in stereo out of any package would've been days of rendertime for the sequences. BUT....I'm just saying....
(...the trick is the caustics in zbtoy, you use two instances of the layer and "add" them. Shine a red direct light through one and a cyan through the other. Projected with a refraction of 1.0 and the "accurate" refracting mode it projects perfect 3d onto the background, rotating the depth field as if the light was a camera. One light from the left, one from the right and you get your anaglyph renders of anything in almost realtime...)
Oh, man, and before I forget: Thank you so very much, sincerely, I'm happy all this time has been so much more than I could've known. Honestly, it makes it sometimes a little tough to focus just on what I want to focus on. Fighting this sense of obligation to something that's almost abstract: How to reflect all that respect. But it's been that kind of true focus, purely driven by intense curiosity and pleasure, that made all of this happen in the first place, you know. But still...it means a lot to me to read this!
Don't forget the attached afx plugin!
