“3D BloKart”

2011. August 5. NYC.

Do you know what an Anaglyph is? How about “Swapping eyes?” I do. I just spent a week learning about 3D HD. And BloKarting.  Bill Price shot 3D HD footage of BloKarts in the Mojave desert to promote the “2012 BloKart World Championships” in California. I volunteered to edit the 2 and a half minute promotional piece. BloKarting is like sailing except it’s on dry land with wheels. Editing 3D is like regular editing except I had to wear those silly paper glasses over my eyeglasses. Which sometimes made me dizzy. I wanted to do an aggressive, “Big Type” graphic treatment to help tell the story, but it would have had to be 3D to be visible. So I learned how to make Anaglyph: Red/Cyan graphics. Luckily there was tons of info out there on the web, and hundreds of complicated ways of doing it. The hardest part was finding the best/easiest way to do it.

Here is the perfect, most simple method I found in case you want to try.   –Glenn
