Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video The 3D Glasses effect, part of After Effects CS5.5 New Creative Techniques.
Next is the 3D Glasses effect.…This is actually an effect that's been in After Effects for several versions now.…However, it's got a nice update in CS5.5.…For one, it is now a 32-bit floating-point capable effect.…Before, it was just an 8-bit effect.…So it does make it much more useful if you do indeed want to render a single…master tape from After Effects.…You've got your normal pop-ups for the Left and Right View. The old…Convergence Offset parameter in the old 3D Glasses effect has now been renamed Scene Convergence.…Again this allows you to correct for poorly converged footage.…
This is not a problem with a stereo 3D camera rig, because you're doing your…convergence up here in the Stereo 3D Controls.…However, if you've been given left/ right footage from cameras or from other…programs, you can use this to go ahead and converge things a bit better.…I'll leave it at 0 since the Stereo 3D Controls is already converging properly.…Vertical Alignment has been added in 5.5.…Again, footage you receive from others may have a vertical misalignment.…
