Pretty Smart

This dude made 3D images by sticking subsequent frames from Alien together: corridor, bridge. That's a really good idea, and it would work with any panning shot without action. It would never have occurred to me.

This one did occur to me, and I'm glad to see that someone's done it, even if it totally doesn't work (the blue is wrong).

There's a lot of good stuff on flickr that comes up if you search for "3D". Exteriors and landscapes seem to work really well.

Unfortunately I don't have my spex here at work (HR doesn't want us viewing each other in 3D) so I'll have to save these good ideas for home viewing.

But it occurs to me that this could be under software control. The offset is what controls the depth, obviously. So I could move my mouse around for 2 Ds and use the scroll for the third. The software would detect the scrolling and adjust the offset of my mouse cursor images.

Probably someone has already done this, though. OTOH, "anaglyph gui" doesn't find much of interest so maybe I'm the inventor of this cheesy computer effect.
