to "hide" the texture file, load the files to the wiki and link to that source

Well known perfect work,

Thanks for the tip Gunter.

And now the Atomium as a stereo image. The idea came from Greg:
viewtopic.php?p=8986#p8986

We have used the free anaglyph maker:

Of course you need special glasses with a red and a cyan filter over your eyes. 8)

Edit: I have added a second image with a less 3-D effect. I think it looks better. What is your opinion?
One of them I will delete later on.

Brilliant work Walter! That really gives the atomium a realism. I can almost reach out and touch it :!:

Now how about a turntable movie? Maybe of your Opel? In the other post I forgot to mention that for movies I use this: http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/stvmkr/
It basically works the same way but instead of a single stereo images you make 2 stereo avi movies and import them into this software. You can preview the video live while you adjust the effect and then export an anaglyph AVI movie.

Here is my workflow:
1. Animate a 360 turn of the object in 3D program and render out two avi movies made from the left and right virtual cameras. Note: In maya you can have many cameras but if your program can only hae one you can simply render out the first movie then move the same camera just a bit over and render out the second movie.
2. Import the Left and Right AVI movies into the stereo movie maker software adjust setting for the 3d effect and export the anaglyph AVI.
3. I used Virtualdub to export the anaglyph movie to numbered single frames.
4. I import the numbered single frames into adobe imageready to be assembled into a SWF.

I think Gunter discovered a program to make an SWF (flash movie) from an AVI but I fogot what it was. If you use this you can skip steps 3 and 4.

Keep making anaglyphs!

Thanks,

Greg

Hi,

the converter from AVI to Flash can be found here:

Think thats a good small tool for free.

Greg and Gunter,
Thanks for the workflow and other support with the anaglyphs and the tip with the AVI converter.
I am sure I will come back and try to shoot a turntable movie.
But now I will do some 3-D tests with my digital photo camera. After you, Greg, has shown us how easy it is to make own stereo images, I am so excited to try it myself.

In the meantime I have „equipped“ two of my older scans with a 3-D stereo image. E.g. the Opel:
viewtopic.php?p=8711#p8711
and Erwin's face:
viewtopic.php?p=2452#p2452

HI Walter,

Very nice anaglyphs. Does Erwin know you are sending his head half way across the world? I think I should have offered him some coffee :lol:

Greg,
No problem with Erwin. I am his manager and he is under contract to me (worldwide). But you are right, now and then he gets some gratifications. :wink:

By the way: Your rotating 3D Darth Vader is perfectly made. It should be an example for my Opel.
