  • Anaglyph 3D Effect with only 1 Adjustment Layer?

    Hey guys, I was pondering my orb wondering if there was a way to create a single preset for one adjustment layer to create an anaglyph 3D (red/blue glasses) effect. I know I could create 2 presets to each change the color channels with one having a transform offset, but this was more a mere curiosity for the sake of knowing the program better.

    Any ideas?

    Are you just asking for chromatic aberration kind of effect or genuine 3d glasses?
    AE has a built-in 3d Glasses effect, but it’s dependent on you having two sources to drive it (either footage from two cameras or two precomps with offset cameras).

    Hey there, just looking for an effect, not actual 3d. So one source with basically 2 position-shifted, color-tinted versions. I was thinking maybe something with echo, but then didn’t know how you could color different echos differently. idk, it was more of a mental puzzle exercise than anything, there may not be a way

    This seems to work:

    Interesting.. I don’t get the same result (cc 2022)
    There’s no fx on the images right?

    I think this is because you have an alpha channel and I had a black solid BG.

    Ah, quite right! Adding the solid bg did the trick, good looking out ;D

    I don’t understand quite why this works but you solved the puzzle! But now I’m curious why are we able to see the original position and not only the offset position?
