Create a 3D Video

You don’t need really expensive equipment to create your own 3D video.

During the 1950s, there was a 3D craze for moviemakers. People flocked to movie theaters to put on cheap, funny-looking, paperboard glasses with different-colored lenses. Well, the craze is over, but you can still create a movie that requires your viewers to don those silly glasses.

To create a 3D movie, you need to choose a technique and become familiar with its strengths and weaknesses.
