Stereoscopic 3D Effect with Anaglyph Images
Thu, 05/27/2010 - 08:00
Anaglyph images are used to provide a stereoscopic 3D effect, when viewed with 2 color glasses (each lens a chromatically opposite color, usually red and cyan). Images are made up of two color layers, superimposed, but offset with respect to each other to produce a depth effect. Usually the main subject is in the center, while the foreground and background are shifted laterally in opposite directions. The picture contains two differently filtered colored images, one for each eye. When viewed through the "color coded" "anaglyph glasses", they reveal an integrated stereoscopic image. The visual cortex of the brain fuses this into perception of a three dimensional scene or composition. (Wikipedia)
Since the current trend for movies and other media is to re-invest in 3D technologies, I decided it would be interesting to show you a collection of various anaglyphs images. I hope you like them and do not forget to put your 3D glasses on, if you do not have one here has a post on how to make yours.
