View Full Version : Alpha channel in 3d stereoscopic renders

04-10-2006, 03:01 PM
I'm making some 3d animated icons for an interactive cd. And these icons will be anaglyph stereo for viewing with red/cyan glasses. Everything is fine with the "anaglyph stereo:compose" plugin when I use a white plane or something like that in background that has a surface opacity and effecting alpha. But when I render these icons with a transparent backgorund, the alpha channel is generated still and so the blue/red offsets can't be seen.
I tried to get two image sequences for L and R for compositing them in another software but I couldn't find a program that handles image files with an alpha channel.
Any of you guys have an idea? Thanks in advance...

After Effects can do this. U need to make two compositions for the left and right sides and then use theese compositions in another composition with 3D glasses effect filter applied to the upper one .(Effect/Channel/3DGlasses).
