friday distraction - DIY anaglyph

the toys - 3D
Originally uploaded by Syrtis.

Look at what Terry (syrtis) has made out of one of the photos from my new lomography pop-9 camera (I'm going to be carefuller with this one, honest). That's my monitor top, by the way: the toys help me to work, especially the chimney sweep, who reminds me that all work is a futile struggle against entropy and cruft.

You can make your own using any camera that will take multiple shots (or move your camera slightly, horizontally between shots -- a mini-tripod helps with this). Then get your photo/s into Adobe photoshop and follow Terry's instructions:

1) pick two horizontally separated frames
2) desaturate them
3) multiply one with pure red, the other with blue-green (#0088FF) - you may have to experiment to see which one should go on which side
4) Merge the two using "lighten" and save :)

5. Wail in despair as you realise that you don't keep your 3D glasses in the office.

Cool! It also reminds me of an old debate I was confronted with as a child ... which was creepier? The Playmobil-men smiles (especially with their rifles), or the Lego-men smiles?

Ever catch the "Blockoworld" episode of The Simpsons? Sheer genius.

No ... I'm going to have to find a link now! [If only I could get the darn flashplayer to install too]

I have no Adobe photoshop though what i could do with a 3D comic is appealing after hearing ole Northampton Beard talk about it last night. You and Terry are faSt !

Steranko did a 3-D version of "Repent, Harlequin, Said the Ticktockman" for The Illustrated Harlan Ellison, although this comprised large (near full-page) designs with accompanying text, rather than a comic strip as such.
