  • 1. All about 3D Movies Image Source
  • 2. First, a bit of science:
    • Anaglyph 3D images are made by two layers of different color that are moved slightly and laid on top of each other
    • The main subject of the image is placed in the center and the foreground and background are placed offset from each other so as to create a "stereoscopic 3D" image.
    • The visual cortex of one’s brain brings these two images together when viewed through a special viewer which holds two lenses with different colored filters, usually red and blue.
