Foundations of the Stereoscopic Cinema by Lenny Lipton

3-Dimensional Photography by Herbert McKay

They are a little dated but always interesting. Special thanks to Enhanced Dimensions, another great 3-D resource right here on wordpress!

Defining Parallaxes

Here is a parallax chart I put together.

I used stills from the 1935 anaglyph short Audioscopiks, which was nominated for an academy award at the time for its innovation. Although there are charts out there that are available, I wanted to make one with clear visuals and anaglyph examples (in case one views this blog with anaglyph glasses which can be purchased here). Until some new monitors come out- anaglyph (red/blue) images will be the cheapest way to try to convey effects for educational purposes on this blog.

Audioscopiks has been posted to the FSU 3D vimeo page and can be seen right here.
