How to properly Deadline Three-Dee compo
The anaglyph 3D compo has been a staple of Deadline for years now, and yet often enough there are entries where the 3D effect just doesn't work at the party, and what looked good on the creator's screen resulted in very confusing 3D and double images when watched at the party, or worse - people in the audience got headaches and had to take off their 3D glasses when the entry was on.
Most of this is because of pretty simple physics, and it mostly boils down to the fact that watching a stereoscopic image on a small screen is a very different thing than watching the same thing on a big projection screen.
How do we even see 3D?
Basically, the way the human visual system focuses on different distances is pretty simple. First, the lenses in your eyes need to set the focus to the distance of the object that you're watching, and second both of your eyes have to turn towards that object to put it into the center of both visual fields.
