Stereo anaglyph compositing tutorial

iaian7's picture

I'm happy to finally release some of the CIfilter code I was working on earlier this year at Vectorform - compositing solutions for stereoscopic images! Covers the three main flavours of anaglyphic glasses; Anachrome (red/cyan), Trioscopic (green/magenta), and ColorCode (amber/blue). Minor controls for image alignment and colour contrast (customise mixing of red/green/blue channels to tune colour perception vs. retinal rivalry).

There are some example images too, so you should have all you need to test things out. Let me know what you think - it may not be the most ideal for realtime usage (like with Kineme GLtools), but still usable. Most of my work is for rendered output, so speed hasn't been my biggest concern. Should result in rather nice quality though!

Well crud, just realised I uploaded the wrong images. Here are some better examples... (that is, large enough to actually see something!)
