S3D Tutorial | Cinema 4D + After Effects: Stereoscopic lensflares and stuff


this tutorial is about how to recreate the off-axis setup of my SV Stereo Rig PRO within After Effects.
So you can align lens flares and other compositing elements correctly to your footage IN STEREO! :D

Many thanks to Thanassis Pozantzis, who developed this method and shared it with me!


SV Stereo Rig on Project Chapman 3D

Checkout this "3D in 3 minutes" tutorial I made for Project Chapman 3D (by Made Visual Studio).
The tutorial describes the basic functions of my free stereo rig for Cinema 4D.

Project Chapman 3D is about the 90-minute, stereoscopic 3D feature film on the life
of Graham Chapman from Monty Python (Working title: “A Liar’s Autobiography, 3D”).
It's also building up a great knowledge base about stereoscopy. So there's more to come!
