Update on the 3D Camera.
I recieved red/cyan glasses, real frames, not paper. They are from Amazon for $3.55 shipped . Also purchases a pair of magenta/green glasses for $6.55 on amazon. I decided to get 2 styles so I would have a fall back if I had issues with the color match on one plus I wanted to see what the differences were in image quality. So far I really have not made any decisions, but the red/cyan seem to work good when I filter the left image in red, and the right image in green and blue.
I discovered by accident while browsing Kodak Zx1 cameras on ebay, that for $12 I could get a IR remote for the Kodak Zx1 cameras I have. I thought this would be great for triggering both cameras at the same instant, it didn't exactly work out that way. I can trigger both cameras almost, but not exactly at the same instant. Good enough for still shots. THere has been a slight lag between the cameras shuttering so I don't think it will work for action shots. There may be a trick to it but I have just started using it. It seems odd to me that two identical cameras would behave differently, and I am not sure of the what or why of it. Overall having the remote is better than having to "thumb" the two cameras simultaneously.
Progress so far:
My first 3d anaglyph:
It works with Red/Cyan glasses.
I made the anaglyph using Blender. It also works for video but the complication is getting the right and left video to be matched time wise. I don't have a good way of synchronizing the right and left video yet. There is a application called Stereo Movie Maker but I am having file type complications with it and the .mov that the Kodak Zx1 cameras are making.
I am making the anaglyph (3d image) in Blender, specifically the Video Sequence Editor.
It has been a very new experience for me. I have never used any software like the VSE. It uses blocks that process a image or video with "threads" to connect the blocks.
I found some tutorials that got me along enough to get over the learning hump to making a first image.
Individual blocks will filter, mix, composite, etc. It is pretty cool stuff, I don't understand much more of it than I learned to get the image out the back end. Video will be next but I think I have to understand a bit more about what I have to do on what I am recording and how the cameras are aligned.
I am going to try GIMP out to make an anaglyph but have not got to that yet.
Still an ongoing project.
