Adding stereoscopic 3D text and shapes

Published by | Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

If you tuned in to Deke’s Techniques last week, you probably still have your red/cyan cardboard sunglasses at hand. Good thing, because this week, Deke shows you how to take your stereoscopic image and move solid objects (in this case text) behind and in front of the perceived screen plane. Words and pictures coming at you courtesy of Deke and lynda.com! And despite its intricate effect, this technique primarily consists of systemtatically turning channels on and off and moving layers right and left. In fact, Deke gives you a cool, non-3D (take those silly glasses off for a second) graphic that shows you how to move your anaglyphic objects to and fro for the desired effect:

By the end of this free video, you’ll have your text dancing in and out of the screen. And in this week’s lynda.com member-exclusive video, Deke shows you how to apply a tilt effect to that text for an amazingly sophisticated effect that you’ll be hard pressed to find documented anywhere else. Put your silly glasses back on for this one, kids.

And we’ll see you back next week for another Deke’s Technique (Illustrator-style!)

    Dear Deke McClelland ,
    I like all of yur tutorials and your way of teaching ….
    And that topic I need more information about it … and I need a deep sight in it
    so Do You mind to send me a reference about Stereoscopic Images to make some experiments on printing techniques .

    Thanks and I appreciate your efforts
