Does anybody know the details of creating a 3D animation that will be viewed on a circular polarized system? Can this be done in AE? If so, what are the output settings? Workflow?

Thanks!

Yes! This can be done. Just need to create two renders one left eye, one right. CS5.5 and higher has a stereoscopic camera which allows you to automate the convergence and ocular distance.

Hi Juan - Thanks for getting back to me. I'm a newbie when it comes to 3D - this is my first dip into the pool. What in AE controls the ocular distance? The 3D Glasses? Or the Stereo 3D Controls? Am I correct in assuming that creating passive polarized output, I should make the 3D View Interlace Upper L Lower R? Or is it Side by Side?

Thanks for the help!

Stereoscopic work is very complicated and difficult. I'd encourage you to find and read as much information as you can about how stereoscopic works. Given the way you've phrased your questions I don't think you understand these. I hope that's not offensive to you, but I don't have the time to give a primer on stereoscopic.

I'd strongly encourage you to look into hiring someone with stereoscopic experience to help you with this project.

Goodluck to you. Sincerely.

Agreed with everything Juan Salvo said. If you want to learn more about doing it yourself, I'd start with the very good introduction tutorials on Adobe TV for the stereo camera rig, 3D controls, and 3D Glasses effect -

Oh - and to answer your question about the output format, most of the time you'll want to use side-by-side Left/Right as an output format, but most S3D monitors/TVs also allow you to select what 3D format is in use, so the answer is.... probably side-by-side, but confirm with whatever your ultimate display system is going to be.

Thanks, Russell! Pointing me in the right direction is much more helpful. It's much appreciated!

The other factor is that side-by-side reduces horizontal resolution by half. I believe for production discreet images is the only choice. Particularly for polarized display.
